Throughout the two-hour event Police were constantly vigilant to the handful of fascists who pushed, shoved and abused members of the public and assaulted a local reporter for The News. Despite online boasts of being joined by "crews" from London and Bournemouth the only back-up they received was from local UKIP activist and racist Joanne Trueman and her simple brother.
The contrast between the two groups was very noticeable with the far-right contingent looking like Gothic Nazis whilst the refugee side comprised babes in arms to pensioners, covering a wide cross-section of the local community.
The event culminated in Portsmouth Guildhall Square with speeches being made by the refugee camp as councillors filed past to attend a full council meeting.
Hampshire Police report that at this time they have not made any arrests but are studying operational video footage following the event.
