Australian police used pepper spray to break up clashes between rightwing nationalists and anti-racism protesters on the streets of Melbourne Saturday as Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said eliminating racism was still a "work in progress".TV footage showed UPF members with Australian flags on poles and their faces covered by bandanas wrestling with leftwing militants, many of whom were hooded and had black cloths over their faces.On one occasion, a UPF protester who fell to the ground was kicked several times by two anti-racism activists.Turnbull, responding to comments by opposition leader Bill Shorten that racism was rife in Australia, said Australia was not "entirely" blameless.
