35,000 protest in Germany against anti-Islamic rallies: organisers
Tens of thousands of people took to the streets Saturday in the German city of Dresden in a rally against the anti-Islamic marches that are expected to keep growing after this week's jihadist violence in France.
Organisers said they estimated the turn-out at around 35,000, nearly double the 18,000 counter-demonstrators who protested last Monday against the weekly marches held in east Germany by the so-called Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident (PEGIDA)".
The movement opposes what it claims to be the Islamisation of Europe.
