Pegida plans to hold anti-Islam demo in Vienna

The Vienna branch of the German anti-Islam movement Pegida has announced that it plans to hold a demonstration in the Austrian capital on February 2nd, at 6.30pm. Numerous left-wing counter demonstrations are also planned.

A police spokesman said on Thursday that police are still considering whether to allow the Pegida march to go ahead.

Organizers have said that they expect around 250 people to march through the city centre, from Europaplatz near to the Westbahnhof, down Mariahilfer Strasse, ending at Museumsplatz.

The rally would be held under the title ‘Peaceful movement of the civil rights movement Pegida Vienna’. If it does go ahead there is likely to be a heavy police presence to prevent clashes with left-wing activists.

    Ronald Reagan used to say “…we are a people with a government, not the other way around.”
    Europe needs to learn this.

    Meanwhile news reports today, have the United Nations and Amnesty Int. warning that the situation in Nigeria is now totally out of control. Moderate muslims have killed over two thousand people over the last few days and the attacks are spreading to neighbouring countries. They can’t even count the bodies. The Nigerian army is ineffective and the country is lead by a corrupt cartoon figure. Perhaps Obama’s wife can hold up another sign. It sure worked last time.

    Wonder if the MSM and the elites have figured out yet, that the more they hag and belittle this movement the stronger they get?

    If it wasn’t so damn serious ,the progressives use of the nazi term for the pegida movement , would be funny, as it is, it is a perfect example of 1984 newspeak with diametrically opposed meanings. It isn’t being too dramatic to say the winner in this street debate will determine the future of Europe or Eurabia
