Danish police arrest scores in second night of nationwide march protesting Danish immigration rules
Thousands of anti-immigration protesters marched from an airport in the north of the country on Saturday to Copenhagen’s iconic Vistbro station in an attempt to send a strong message to the country’s Prime Minister.
Police stopped the rally at about 15:40 local time (1:40 GMT) after a few hundred people moved into the area, but the demonstration spread into several other Danish towns and cities, including Malmö and Karlstad.
The march, which was timed to mark World Refugee Day, was largely peaceful. Some participants threw fireworks at police.

Last week, anti-immigration protests began to take place across Denmark, with local authorities imposing a new law that would prohibit the transport of refugees from war zones on trains and buses. The new measure has since been overturned and the government said it would introduce a law to limit the free movement of asylum seekers.
Rights groups have slammed the law, which will apply to asylum seekers who arrived before 2007, saying it will only serve to accelerate the deportation of thousands of others.
Some have also called for the creation of a European Union-wide border agency to process asylum-seekers and also for a mandatory database of migrants’ social networks to prevent terrorist attacks.
Police say a number of the protesters at Vistbro were seen carrying bottles of spray paint.

The march also included a brief anti-refugee rally in central Copenhagen, in which anti-refugee activists said some of the participants were armed with knives and were aiming fireworks at police.
The incident prompted Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen to warn that his government would not tolerate the “dangerous” demonstration.
In a statement on Sunday, the Danish prime minister said: “When a certain group attempts to use the poli출장 안마tical spectrum to bring about radicalization, Denmark, or at least the people of Denmark will not have to tolerate this dangerous attempt.”
Some demonstrators took to Copenhagen’s streets on Saturday to demand a ban on the entry of foreigners to Denmark.
