Dutch populist Wilders to appear at Dresden PEGIDA rally
Dresden is bracing itself for a high turnout for the next PEGIDA rally, where outspoken anti-immigration Dutch populist, Geert Wilders, is to make an appearance. Opponents say the invitation crossed a "red line."
Officials in the eastern German city expected up to 30,000 people to turn out for mass rallies on Monday.
Although PEGIDA, whose names translates to "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident [or West]," has seen dwindling support at its weekly demonstrations, Wilders' scheduled speech was expected to lure in large numbers of both supporters and opponents.
