Czech PEGIDA Rally In Prague Against The Muslim Invasion Saturday 6 February 2016
Thousands of Czechs are rallying in the Czech capital of Prague, some against the influx of refugees and others in support of them. Some opposing protesters clashed briefly before police separated them.
The main anti-migrant rally Saturday, part of Europe-wide protests in cooperation with Germany's anti-Islam, anti-immigrant group PEGIDA, is taking place in front of Prague Castle, the presidency seat. Czech President Milos Zeman is known for his anti-Muslim rhetoric.
Martin Konvicka, a leader of the anti-Muslim movement, is calling the influx of refugees an "invasion" that poses a "huge threat for us all."
Two other anti-migrant groups are rallying in Prague and another in the second-largest Czech city of Brno. Two demonstrations in favor of immigration are also going on in Prague. Yahoo Read More>>>>
