Extreme right-wing group joining Amsterdam Pegida rally
Right-wing nationalist group Voorpost is calling on its supporters to join the Pegida demonstration in Amsterdam, AT5 reports. Pegida plans to demonstrate in Amsterdam on Saturday to make up for a previous demonstration that was cut short after a fake bomb was discovered. The anti-Islam movement hopes to hold their protest in front of Mayor Eberhard van der Laan's official residence. Voorpost is now calling on its supporters to join this demonstration. They also urge supporters to wear pig's hats, in protest against Pegida spokesperson Edwin Wagensveld being arrested in Ede on Saturday.
