EDL holds far-right rally in Denmark to unite 'anti-Islamic alliance'

Source: The Guardian

Far-right groups from across Europe, including members of the English Defence League (EDL), are holding a rally in Denmark in a bid to set up "an anti-Islamic alliance" across the continent.

The demonstration in Denmark's second city of Aarhus is expected to draw anti-Islamic groups from countries including Russia, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Romania, and Sweden.

The EDL, which has organised the rally, said it was not expecting large numbers perhaps around 700 but said the event signalled the beginning of a Europe-wide movement against the "Islamification of Europe".

They will contest the streets with a coalition of anti-racism groups who have organised counter-protests. The prospect of clashes has struck fear into some residents. Danish police are expecting thousands of anti-racism campaigners, and vowed to keep the groups apart.

3. NPR was covering this on Weekend Edition.

There was mention of the counterdemonstrations, and that all this is taking place so not far from where an anti-Muslim extremist massacred dozens of people.
