  • Supporters of the Pegida movement gather for another of their weekly protests on January 5, 2015 in Dresden, Germany. Pegida is an acronym for 'Patriotische Europaeer Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes,' which translates to 'Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamification of the West,' and has quickly gained a spreading mass appeal by demanding a more restrictive policy on Germany's acceptance of foreign refugees and asylum seekers.

    Protesters marched in several German cities against what they see as the growing influence of Islam in defiance of an appeal from Chancellor Angela Merkel to spurn rallies she views as racist.
