PEGIDA UK to Bring Anti-Islamisation Demonstrations to Britain as First Meeting Given Go-Ahead

Britain’s own chapter of counter-Islamisation group PEGIDA has got the go ahead from police to hold its first demonstration in Newcastle next Saturday, with speeches expected from organisers and anti-Islamism speaker Paul Weston.

Speaking to Breitbart London, the leaders of PEGIDA UK said they had learnt lessons from the experiences of other PEGIDA groups in Europe, some of which have seen rapid growth, and others that have failed to gain traction. The organisers said they had specifically chosen Newcastle as a city which they felt would, like Dresden, be receptive to their warnings of rapid Islamisation, and which was a significant distance from the most active centres of English “political correctness” to avoid violent counter-protests.
