Anti-Islam Protests in Germany
(Telegraph) Thousands of Germans have taken to the streets against what they say is the growing “Islamisation” of the country–The new protests that begun in Dresden in the former East-Germany, features no neo-Nazi slogans and have nothing to do with the traditional far-right instead, the demonstrations have adopted the old rallying call of the protests against the East-German Communist regime that brought down the Berlin Wall 25 years ago:
“Wir sind das volk” or “We are the People” they are saying they want to preserve Germany’s Judeo-Christian Western culture.
Thousands have defied sub-zero temperatures to join weekly marches each Monday in Dresden under the banner of ‘Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of Europe.’
The protests were started by a local man Lutz Bachmann with no background in politics–When he called his first demonstration in October, only a few hundred turned out but the movement has snowballed and last week an estimated 7,500 showed up.Tweet
