Pegida sees 'complete failure' in Norway
A leading expert on the far-Right has branded the anti-Islamic movement Pegida "a complete failure" in Norway after just 25 people showed up to take part in a march in Oslo on Monday.
"Pegida in Norway has been a complete failure with infighting breaking loose already before the first demonstration," Tor Bach, editor of Vepsen, a magazine which tracks the far-Right in Norway, told The Local. "The group has gathered less people for each demonstration, ending with 25 people showing up this week."
Pegida's Norway head Max Hermansen had hailed the organisation's first Oslo march, which came shortly after January's brutal attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, as a record for Norway, with nearly 200 protestors attending, but the numbers attending rallies have dropped consistently.
