Six skinheads were arrested in Pazardzhik, Bulgaria, on March 20 after they attacked gay and lesbian activists who were protesting a City Council decision to ban public displays of homosexuality.
The protesters, from the youth group LGBT in Action, had traveled to the city from Sofia, the capital.
When the skinheads attacked, police officers, led by the police chief, knocked them to the ground and arrested them, according to the Sofia News Agency.
The skinheads reportedly yelled, “Go to Uganda, freaks.”
LGBT in Action has filed a challenge to the new local law with the national anti-discrimination commission.
