PROOF THE MEDIA & COMMUNISTS LIED ABOUT PEGIDA UK TURNOUT
On February 6th 2016, PEGIDA UK held its inaugural silent march. Despite pouring rain and strong wind, an estimated 400-500 PEGIDA supporters walked silently in protest to the disastrous policy of importing violent criminals, fascists and Islamists into Europe.
Of course, British communists and the international press did everything they could to make the successful event look like a failure. Nick Lowles, communist mouth piece for Hope Not Hate (and compulsive liar) took to Twitter to claim that just 127 marchers attended the demonstration.
The Guardian claimed PEGIDA UK had a ‘low turnout’ of 200 protestors, and Fulton County Newsechoed those assertions. Political Scrapbook went even further and published the totally false 127 figure dreamed up by Lowles.
LET’S LOOK AT THE FACTS
PEGIDA UK provided 200 placards to protesters. I know this because I designed the placards and arranged the printing. Every single one of our 200 placards were handed out to our supporters, with around 50% of attendees being left disappointed. We estimated an attendance of around 400 supporters by 2pm.
We can also confirm this through video footage and photographs from the day. Take, for instance, this wide shot of the PEGIDA UK audience from Russia Today’s footage. The shot doesn’t even include every person in the audience – many people were on the same hill that RT was recording from, and are therefore not in the footage – yet 342 supporters are still clearly visible.
You can also see the huge amount of people walking on the below RT footage, before we arrived at the stage area. Look at all of those people and remind yourself that Nick Lowles, Hope Not Hate and a wealth of other communists got their maths so atrociously wrong.
We were thoroughly delighted to see such a large turnout for the very first PEGIDA UK demonstration. Liberals and conservatives alike, along with Brits and immigrants, came together to oppose radical Islam. A brave Pakistani took to the stage to talk about his experience as an apostate of Islam, we had immigrants from all over Europe in attendance, and we even had a vast number of people who have never been on any protest before in their life.
This is an incredible start. PEGIDA Dresden started with a mere handful of protestors, and now mobilises tens of thousands of people. We already have a head start – and we have no intention of stopping.
It’s not surprising that the media and the government-sponsored communist groups lied about the silent walk. With the impeccable behaviour of every single one of our protestors, and the fact that we are the moral, civilised and decent people in this debate, the biased media has nothing to beat us with. Instead, journalism goes beyond being lazy and becomes negligent.
Deputy Leader of PEGIDA UK, Anne Marie Waters, asked the media during her speech to tell the truth. Clearly they weren’t listening. See below.
We had at least 400 patriotic, civilised people protesting against the destruction of our freedoms as Western people on the 6th February. On April 2nd, we need to increase this number. We need to see every single person that came to the 6th February march to return in April with one, two or three of their friends.
The minute our numbers reach the thousands, the media will have to stop lying, and the politicians will have to start listening. As Paul Weston said during his speech – we must put the fear of God into our politicians.
