Members of the far-right group 1389 are packing brochures on Kosovo and posters titled "Kosovo is Serbia" for their Warsaw trip on November 11 and 12.

The group of 10 is due to join extreme right-wing organisations from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary at an a far-right conference on November 11.

Every year on the Independence Day of Poland, November 11, extremists organise a march in the streets of Warsaw carrying such slogans as "All of Poland will be white" or "Enough of Jewish occupation." Anti-fascists, anarchists and other human rights activists also gather in large numbers to prevent them.

Last year the police had to intervene as more than 2,000 extremists clashed with about 3,000 leftist opponents.

This year the organisers will hold a special meeting to support Serbia's bid to regain its former province of Kosovo, which declared independence in February 2008.

"As part of Serbia, Kosovo will be presented in the proper way at a meeting on November 12," Misa Vacic of 1389 told Balkan Insight.

According to Vacic, 1389 has developed lasting cooperation with extremists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland.

"No 1389 action has been carried out without the support of Czechs, Slovaks and Poles," Vacic said.

Meanwhile, Serbian Police are monitoring the Serbian rightists'movements after receiving a tip from Polish Interpol that they should check to see whether extremists from Serbia plan to attend the Neo-Nazi rally.

"If we find that there is a security threat, then we will react, which may mean the ban on leaving the country," Serbian police said in a statement.

Serbia's constitutional court has started collecting information on 1389 to see if its activities are unconstitutional.
