Dresden bans protest against anti-Islam movement over snowball fight fears
Dresden authorities have banned a protest in the eastern city over fears that a snowball fight could break out.
The decision was issued by Dresden's town hall on Friday, after a man named as Benjamin H. applied for permission to hold a rally on Monday evening, according to a report in Tagesspiegel.
The rally was planned to protest a protest by the anti-Islam Pegida movement taking place on the same evening.
But Benjamin H., who has previously organized multiple protests against Pegida - which was founded in Dresden - and the far-right AfD party, was surprised by the reason given by authorities in their response.
