The right-wing populist Pegida (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident - German: Patriotische Europäer gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes, founded in 2014 in Dresden) group is set to hold regular vilgils in downtown Munich on Mondays to Thursday at the Marienplatz. The first is set for Tuesday from 4 to 7pm. The group has already registered the vigils for the coming week. Additionally, they plan to hold monthly demonstrations in front of the Feldherrnhalle on Mondays.
The right-wing populist Pegida Group intends to expand significantly their Islamophobic and increasingly anti-Semitic activities in Munich, Sueddeutsche.de reports. The Munich Pegida demonstrations are anything but harmless meetings of concerned citizens as a new list of the Interior Ministry documented the close proximity to right-wing extremists, the newspaper reports further.
As on other occasions, the “Munich is Colourful” alliance is set for counter-demonstrations.
