PEGIDA : New Dawn or False Hope?

The movement has also released a Manifesto of sorts, here is a brief summary:

  • The protection of Germany’s Judeo-Christian culture
  • Tolerance toward assimilated and politically moderate Muslims
  • That war refugees should be welcomed in Germany
  • The current facilities for the housing of immigrants are inadequate and partly inhumane
  • Wants a fairer distribution of immigrants amongst EU nations
  • German immigration policy should be modelled on that of Australia and Switzerland
  • Foreigners should integrate into German society
  • Criminal immigrants and refugees should be promptly expelled
  • People should be free to determine their own sexuality

Two of the organisation’s tenets however run contrary to mainstream German political belief;

  • Islamism is a misogynist and violent ideology

  • Constraints on political speech imposed by gender mainstreaming or political correctness should be loosened
