Anti-Islamists Demonstrate in Britain: Hate in Europe

Founded in Germany in 2014, the far-right, anti-Islamic movement Pegida — which stands for “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West” — has since spread throughout western Europe

On February 28, VICE News traveled to Newcastle in northeast England for the inaugural demonstration of spinoff organization Pegida UK. Demonstration organizers told VICE News that they were mobilizing against the imminent rise of Sharia in Britain — and that they feared a future in which British women were forced to wear burkas on British streets.

Anti-Fascists Clash with Pegida Movement in Vienna: Hate in Europe

Founded in Germany in 2014, the far right, anti-Islamic movement Pegida has since spread throughout western Europe, with organizers planning demonstrations in Switzerland, Spain, and Belgium.

On February 2, the movement held a rally in Vienna, Austria, but was met with opposition from anti-fascist activists in the city center. Despite being separated by heavy police presence, tension between the two groups escalated.

VICE News went to the rally to find out what motivated Pegida supporters, as well as anti-Pegida demonstrators, to take to the streets.

Copenhagen Killings: The Aftermath

On February 14, a gunman opened fire on a café in Copenhagen, killing one man and injuring three police officers. The café was hosting a debate on free speech — featuring the controversial cartoonist Lars Vilks, famous for his 2007 drawing of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad as a dog. Hours later, the shooter, who had fled the scene of the crime, reappeared outside of Denmark’s central synagogue, where he shot and killed a Jewish volunteer guard and wounded two more police officers. The shooter again fled the scene, sparking a citywide manhunt.

Around 5am on February 15, the suspected gunman was located by police and shot dead. He was soon identified as Omar el-Hussein, a 22-year-old Danish-born Muslim man, who had just been released from jail. Authorities suspect Hussein may have been radicalized by supporters of the Islamic State militant group while in prison.

Hours later, VICE News landed in Copenhagen to investigate the aftermath of the attacks. We attended a nighttime rally of the anti-Islam group PEGIDA and met with Denmark’s Chief Rabbi and a representative from pan-Islamic organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, who said that Islamophobia is rising in the Danish capital.

Intolerance After The Violence: Paris Gun Attack (Dispatch 4)

Terrorism has aggravated anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and social segregation across France. VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travelled to Paris to see how the attacks on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket in early January have impacted its disparate communities.

Larsson meets the French branch of controversial political organization Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA), which has gained support across Europe on the back of its anti-Islamization rhetoric. She also visits a Jewish school in Paris under heavy security, and speaks to activists from Muslim Students of France about the stigmatization of young muslims. Finally, she travels to the Paris suburb Villiers-sur-Marne — where a girlfriend of one of the attackers once lived — to find out what pushes young people towards radicalization.

25,000 March Against Islam: Hate in Europe

Every Monday since the beginning of October, protesters have taken to the streets of Dresden, Germany, under the banner of “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident” (PEGIDA). While the initial protests in early October saw 350 demonstrators in attendance, the numbers have risen week by week, reaching 25,000 on January 12.

Up until very recently, PEGIDA demonstrators have largely refused to speak to the media, who they accuse of manipulating their message. In spite of this, VICE News traveled to Dresden to witness one of the continent’s largest anti-Islamic movements and to discover what PEGIDA’s aims are for Germany and for Europe as a whole.
