It would appear the good people of Europe have had enough of this humanitarian crisis…
Signs stating messages such as “GO HOME” and “Islam will be the Death of Europe” filled three European capitals Saturday as citizens of the EU organized mass demonstrations against the tidal wave of Muslim refugees drowning their countries. As Europe remains in crisis and leaders from the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia continue to fight back against EU refugee quotas, the air became tense.
In Poland, approximately 5,000 demonstrated against Islam while begging their government to give them a voice. One such protester identified as a Roman Catholic stated that “We’re here so that the government hears our voice and abandons any plans to welcome Muslims.”
Another stated “Migrants today, terrorists tomorrow.”
Organisers[sic] claimed the demonstration drew 10,000 people but police refused to confirm the figure.
Around 1,500 anti-migrant protestors also rallied in the Slovak capital Bratislava, some holding up banners reading: “You’re not welcome here so go home”, an AFP correspondent said.
Another said: “Multiculturalism is a utopia, don’t open the borders”.
Police in the Czech capital Prague said some 800 people protested against the arrival of refugees and migrants, holding up banners saying: “Send them back!” and “Protect the borders”.
Demonstrators called on the Czech government to resign and for a withdrawal from the European Union which it joined in 2004.
All poorer members of the EU, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic on Friday ruled out accepting refugees under a compulsory quota system outlined by the European Commission, rejecting German pleas for European solidarity in tackling the crisis.
The European Union’s 28 interior ministers are to meet on Monday to discuss a the EC plan which involves a quota system for distributing 160,000 refugees around the bloc. – AFP
