Thousands mark two years of German anti-migrant Pegida
Thousands of protesters massed in the eastern German city of Dresden on Sunday to mark the second anniversary of the anti-migrant and Islamophobic movement Pegida.
Carrying flags bearing slogans like "Refugees not welcome", the crowd chanted "Merkel must go" as they railed against the almost 900,000 asylum seekers who arrived in Germany last year.
No violence had broken out so far at the rally, police said, while independent research group Durchgezaehlt estimated turnout at between 6,500 and 8,500 people -- far less than the 20,000 who joined the anniversary rally a year ago.
