For every demonstration Pegida holds in Eindhoven, the Muslim organisation, Oemmah, will announce a major counter-demonstration.
Starting with the demonstration on Thursday. This is stated in a letter the organisation sent to Mayor Jorritsma.
If Pegida gets permission to demonstrate again on Thursday at the Al-Fourqaan mosque in Otterstraat, there will be a counter-demonstration at the same time. “You now know that a large group of counter-protesters from Dutch multicultural society will come to this. They are not willing to stand aside for the neo-Nazis of the extreme, right-wing, anti-Islamic Pegida,” the letter says.
Pegida wanted to demonstrate in Eindhoven on Sunday. That protest was denied because the Municipality could not get sufficient measures in place in time to guarantee the safety of the demonstrators and residents.
