Record Numbers Attend #PEGIDA ‘Anti-Islamization’ Rally in Germany

DRESDEN—A weekly anti-Islam march in the German city of Dresden attracted its largest-ever crowd Monday in what its organizers say was a tribute to the French terror victims.

At least 25,000 turned out for the rally sponsored by a group calling itself Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA).
Some marchers held up signs denouncing Islam, foreigners, and multiculturalism.

Many in the crowd carried French flags or placards saying ‘Je Suis Charlie’ (I Am Charlie) – mirroring the millions of people who had gathered in cities across France just a day before in a show of unity.

“I’m here tonight because I sympathize with the French people and am sorry for what happened to them. I also fear that the same can happen here to us.“

    If mainstream media is reporting 25,000 it is a pretty safe bet that actual attendance was over 30k

    • The Daily Mail is reporting 40,000

        It’s funny how your first instinct when MSM reports numbers on a non-pc March is to add 50 to 100 percent and you are usually right.

        MSM=Lying Cowards

      • That is probably the true figure.

    Quite telling that Merkel attacks an anti Islam group yet she will attend a muslim rally. Shows where her true loyalties lie.

    When they start lynching politicians like Merkel and Holland, only then will they have taken the first step in winning the civil war. Until then they are nothing more than empty hash-tag flash-mob types, who will move on to the next trendy thing until their heads are lopped off by moderate Muslims. The EU is doomed.

    Despite Monday’s high turnout, the Pegida protestors have been outnumbered by counter-demonstrations urging tolerance.
    Not true. The Pegida outnumbered Antifa &Co., MSM, as is often the case, lies.

    Btw. They (PEGIDA) had messages/greetings to different countries (I heard one to Greece and France) and I think there was a one for Canada. Perhaps somebody heard that for Canada?

  • Does anyone know whether Pegida has its own website, giving its own figures? I have tried Googling for it with no results. Please let me know.

    The liberal and Muslim fascists must be upset.
