The far-right group Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (Pegida) plans to hold an anti-Islam protest in Eindhoven (North Brabant province) on Saturday, June 22. Demonstrators will reportedly distribute flyers outside the Al-Farooq Mosque on Otterstraat from 14:00 (local time).
A heightened security presence and localized disruptions are likely; clashes between protesters and counter-protesters or security forces cannot be ruled out.
Similar protests organized by Pegida were held in Eindhoven in recent weeks that resulted in localized violence and the arrests of several people.
Individuals in Eindhoven are advised to monitor the situation, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, avoid protests and counterprotests as a precaution, and anticipate a heightened security presence and localized disruptions.
