Nearly two thousand people protested on Saturday in the German city of Frankfurt against a march held by the far-right movement Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West, also known as PEGIDA. Approximately 200 PEGIDA members gathered in Frankfurt's Rossmarkt Street and chanted against Islam and migrant communities.

Simultaneously, two thousand protesters held demonstrations in different parts of the city against the group. PEGIDA opponents chanted, "Migrants will be welcomed in Frankfurt" and "Nazis out of Frankfurt."
