Position Paper on the PEGIDA Movement in Dresden

On Saturday the 28th of October, PEGIDA, the self-acclaimed movement of “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the Occident” have celebrated their 3rd anniversary. The weekly demonstrations bring to the streets a melange of grim people, ranging from so-called “concerned citizens” all the way to radical neo-Nazis. Their agenda and slogans go far beyond the conservation of Europe’s christian-judean heritage and target migrants and migration policies, political leaders, left-wing and conservative media outlets alike and call for a society that leaves no space for anyone who does not fit their image of an authoritarian and nationalistic, unified people.
