Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Scotland, 10 countries in all are coming together with a singular goal in mind: To save their countries from the plague called Islamization. (So when do we get an American Defense League?)
UK TELEGRAPH More than 10 anti-Islamic groups from across Europe, led by the English Defence League, are expected to send representatives to a big rally in Denmark on March 31st.
“There will be speeches from every defence league in Europe,” said Isak Nygren, the spokesman for the Swedish Defence League. “I hope we can show that there’s resistance against Islamisation of Europe, that we can inspire each other.”
The EDL has held one European rally before, sending members to Amsterdam in 2010 in support of Dutch anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilders, who was in court accused of insulting religious and ethnic groups.
Tommy Robinson, the founder of the EDL three years ago, said he was inspired by the Amsterdam gathering to link up with other far-Right groups in Europe, setting up the European Freedom Initiative.
The EDL is seen as being quite a significant movement, and groups in Europe are looking at Britain and the EDL as a model. Denmark is a natural choice for the EDL to launch its first European march.
The Danish People’s Party is one of the most electorally successful anti-immigrant parties in Europe, winning 12.3 per cent in elections last September. The Danish Defence League has grown rapidly since its founding a year ago, with chapters already set up in more than 10 Danish cities.
