Over two hundred anti-racism activists surrounded and drowned out a small group of far-right protesters Saturday in Toronto, foiling their efforts to spread an anti-Muslim message through the streets of downtown.

Between a barricade of police, bicycles and guard rails, anti-fascists shouted at men wearing Make America Great Again (MAGA) caps in a showdown that lasted all Saturday afternoon.

The original far-right protest was organized by Patriots of Canada Against the Islamization of The West (Pegida Canada) — a local chapter of a larger international movement that has been attracting and fostering hatred towards Muslims around the world.
