Anti-foreigner group Pegida disrupts artwork unveiling in Dresden
Supporters of Germany's anti-Islam movement Pegida disrupted the unveiling of an artwork by a German-Syrian artist on Tuesday in front of Dresden's iconic Frauenkirche church.
Around 100 followers of Pegida, or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West, shouted at mayor Dirk Hilbert as he unveiled the piece from Manaf Halbouni.
The artwork in question, called "Monument," involves scrap buses stood up on their back ends and is intended to remind viewers of civilian suffering in Aleppo, where buses were used in this way to act as barricades protecting residents from sniper fire.
