dresden - Again Monday thousands of supporters of anti-Islam movement Pegida in Dresden, Germany took to the streets. At the meeting on the Neumarkt became refugees generally vilified as a non-integrable and unfit for the German labor market. Pegida frontman Lutz Bachmann likened Attorney Heiko Maas (SPD) thereby to Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.
According to estimates showed around 8000 people responded to the call for the meeting. At the same time hundreds of people marched to the nearby post office against hate and smear campaign and for openness to the world. Police were four hundred to five hundred local agents and kept both groups at bay.
The SPD reacted indignantly to the Meuse- Goebbels comparison. The Social Democratic Party is demanding an investigation against Pegida chief Bachmann.
