|AMSTERDAM, 19/01/08 – An action group wants to demonstrate in Amsterdam next Saturday against the ‘Islamisation’ of Europe, as newspaper Het Parool Friday reported.
The demonstration on Dam square is being organised by Stop Islamisation of Europe, an action group set up by the Danish politician Anders Gravers and British Stephen Gash. They are expecting a turnout of some 300 people. Speeches will be given, including one by Gravers, according to Het Parool.
