WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Fascists and other far-right extremists are set to assemble in Warsaw for a march that has become one of the largest gatherings in Europe and perhaps beyond for increasingly emboldened white supremacists.

The march held annually since 2009 on Poland's Nov. 11 Independence Day holiday began on a much smaller scale.

It now draws tens of thousands of participants, with extremists from Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia and elsewhere joining Polish nationalists in a public display of xenophobic views.

American white supremacist Richard Spencer was scheduled to speak at a conference before Saturday's march, but the Polish government said he was unwelcome in the country.

The slogan for this year's event is "We Want God," words from an old Polish song that President Donald Trump quoted in July while visiting Warsaw.
