5. januar 2015

Først danske forsøg på at gennemføre en dansk anti-muslimsk og anti-indvandrer Pegida-demonstration i Haderslev bliver mødt med langt større moddemonstration.
Organiseret af yderste højrekræfter forsøger Pegida at gennemføre manifestation flere steder i landet. I København bliver det anledning til en række faste mandags-demoer “for mangfoldighed”, og debat om Pegida-talspersonen Nicolai Sennels’ faglige etik og ansættelse, bl.a. på Modkraft blogs (se links nedenfor).
