The Associated Press is reporting that police in Poland used a water cannon and sprayed tear gas on far-right protesters who attempted to stop the first Pride parade in the eastern city of Lublin in Poland.

Rainbow-colored flags and banners were carried aloft for the parade by over a thousand LGBTQ participants gathered Saturday in Lublin as 300 right-wing haters blocked the parade’s path.

Political authorities had canceled the march but Poland’s Court of Appeal overruled the ban on Friday (12 October) due to freedom of assembly laws.
