Some 3,000 people across Czech Republic demonstrate against immigrants

Some three thousand people have been demonstrating against immigrants in Prague, Brno and several other cities across the Czech Republic on Wednesday. Most of the gatherings were organised by the initiative Block against Islam and the populist part Dawn-National Coalition. In Prague, police in riot gear had to step in to separate the anti-Islamic demonstrators from the supporters of migration. Among the people attending the gathering in Prague were represenatives of the German anti-Islamic movement Pegida, including the leader Lutz Bachmann. The biggest gathering, attended by some 1,500 people, took place in Brno.
