There was an anti-islamification event in Berlin today, organised under the auspices of the Pro Deutschland/Pro Berlin political movement, which is fielding several candidates in the upcoming Berlin elections. A few hundred people were in attendance, including Lars Seidensticker, a Pro Berlin candidate who was the victim of a recent acid attack while putting up campaign posters.

Despite far-left militants having previously incited violence against the "racists and fascists" they claimed would be present, the event passed off peacefully. No doubt this was due to the heavy police presence. The photo below shows the event area almost fully enclosed by police vans in the background.

It seems the American Tea Party activist Taylor Rose was not present after all, although a message from him was read out. I'm not sure of the reason for his absence. Perhaps Hurricane Irene?

Karl Ernst Hobol gave a good speech. There is a video of it that I may translate and subtitle later in the week if I can find the time. "Why is there no Hinduismphobia?" he asked.
