Anti-Wilders demonstration held in London

Published on 17/10/2009

London - Almost thirty Muslims have demonstrated outside parliament against a visit by Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders.

The small demonstration was held on Westminster’s College Green, where the controversial Dutch MP had been due to hold a press conference.

The conference had to be hastily relocated inside the House of Lords annexe as a result.

Demonstrators held placards reading, Islam will dominate the world and Sharia for the Netherlands and Wilders go to hell. Sharia is Islamic law.

The demonstration attracted a great deal of media attention.

In response, Wilders said “They have a right to demonstrate and I respect that. I am proud that people can use their democratic right.

But I would have rather held the press conference outside.”
