Netherlands: Pegida leaders detained for wearing swastika t-shirts at anti-refugee rally

Netherlands, The Hague
September 11, 2016 at 20:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

Notable activists of the Dutch branch of the far-right anti-refugee organisation Pegida, such as the leader Edwin Wagensveld, were arrested during an anti-Islam and anti-refugee protest in The Hague on Sunday.

The arrests started when Pegida members put on t-shirts with the old logo of the organisation which consists a swastika, effectively ignoring The Hague Mayor Jozias Van Aartsen pre-protest appeals to exclude far-right symbols from the protest.

A man dressed as the Jyllands-Posten caricature version of Muslim Prophet Muhammad was also detained.
