Around 3,000 protesters, according to state Radio Slovenija, waved Slovenian flags and banners with slogans such as "Migrants' centre: no thanks!" and "The duty of all patriots is defend the country from this government". The protest near the town of Kranj, around 25 kilometres (15 miles) north of capital Ljubljana, was called by a civil group and backed by the main opposition centre-right Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS). The authorities have said they could open a migrants' accommodation centre in an abandoned home improvement store near the town.
