UK demo for Newcastle upon Tyne on February 28
+++ Demonstration on 28.2.2015 in Newcastle upon Tyne. Pegida United Kingdom Gathering at the cathedral near the train station between 9-10 am. March at 10.30 for 30 mins. Gather at the big market for speeches till finish
It is the first of a series of demos planned for the UK, with others due to take place in Manchester, Birmingham and London.
Pegida’s UK spokesman told the Mirror: “We do not want to attract extremists to this rally.
“We are against radical Islam, hate preachers and believe Muslims need to adapt to our way of life in the West instead of us adapting to them.
“We do not want to do anything illegal and we will liaise with the police over this even if it means delaying the march by a week or two.
“We expect anywhere from 500 to 3,000 people for our first rally, and could then move on to London, Manchester and Birmingham.
“We chose Newcastle as neutral ground. This is a new and peaceful movement, and we do not want to get into any racist, right wing stuff.
“This is against extremism. If we can get 300 terrorists out of the UK, then as far as we are concerned that is a step in the right direction.”
Pegida is said to be against fundamentalist Islamic teaching and terrorism. It calls for anyone engaged in terror-related activities to be booted out of Britain.
In mehreren Ländern sind Ableger der Pegida-Bewegung gegründet worden. Ein britischer Ableger der antiislamischen Pegida-Bewegung will Ende Februar erstmals in Großbritannien eine Kundgebung abhalten. Die Polizei teilte am Freitag mit, es sei eine Demonstration für den 28. Februar in der nordenglischen Stadt Newcastle angemeldet worden.
