Dresden can't stop PEGIDA rally on Nazi pogrom anniversary
Dresden's mayor says there's nothing he can do to stop an anti-Islam group from staging a rally on the 77th anniversary of a Nazi pogrom.
About 10,000 people are expected to attend the weekly rally organized by Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West, or PEGIDA, in the city on Monday. Recent protests have focused heavily on condemning the arrival of refugees to Germany.
Dresden mayor Dirk Hilbert said he regretted the xenophobic image his city has because of PEGIDA, but that the group's rallies are protected by free speech laws.
