Anti-Islam Pegida leader banned from running demos
The founder of the far-right, anti-Islam movement has been banned from leading the group's weekly demonstrations - but he says this won't stop him from participating.
The city of Dresden has banned Pegida leader Lutz Bachmann from running his group's rallies, a spokeswoman from the city confirmed to Die Zeit on Tuesday.
Bachmann had organized a rally on German Unity Day - October 3rd - when the Saxon capital was playing host to national celebrations, attended by Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Joachim Gauck. But according to Zeit, the protest had not been authorized and took place at a location where the city had banned demonstrations.
