Neo-Nazi’s in Tbilisi, Georgia, are so angry over a vegan restaurant’s existence that its members hurled grilled meats at customers.

Police were called to the Kiwi Cafe after sausage-hurling Neo-Nazi’s barged into the establishment. The attackers, who allegedly take issue with the business’ LGBT clientele, hurled sausages at paying customers who were watching an English-language film.

“They pulled out some grilled meat, sausages, fish and started eating them and throwing them at us, and finally they started to smoke,” the Kiwi Cafe said Monday on its Facebook page. “Knowing that all of the above is forbidden here, they were just trying to provoke our friends and disrespect us. We said that they must leave because this is a vegan cafe and because it is our place and we don’t want them to provoke a conflict with their behavior. But they didn’t leave and started yelling, laughing, and talking to us sarcastically. They said things like ‘Why are you so aggressive? What about love?’”

A fight broke out that carried over into the street, but the group fled before police arrived. Locals joined in and fought on behalf of the Neo-Nazis, Fox 5 New York reported Tuesday.

“One of policemen was very aggressive, pushed us, yelled with anger, [and] said that we are guilty of what had happened. Some of cafe workers were brought to police office for interrogation. In spite of the situation and everyday negative attitude to us and other people who visit us, cafe is continuing to work and is ready to accept all costumers regardless of nationality, race, appearance, age, gender, sexual orientation, religious views, etc.,” the Kiwi Cafe wrote.
