Swedish anti-Islam rally only attracts handful
According to the police, counter-demonstrators dramatically outnumbered anti-Islam Pegida protesters at a rally in Uppsala in central Sweden on Saturday.
Police said that the Pegida gathering attracted only a handful of listeners, while 250-300 anti-Pegida demonstrators showed up at Forum Square in Uppsala to voice their opposition to the anti-Islam organisation.
Two of those who spoke at the rally were was the gallery owner Henrik Rönnquist, the founder of the Swedish branch of Pegida, and street artist and provocateur Dan Park - both previously convicted of incitement to racial hatred.
