Men weat T-shirts as they take part in a counter-demonstrations against a rally by supporters of the Pegida movement in Newcastle, northern EnglandAround 2,000 people protested on Saturday in Newcastle, northeast England, against a march held by the British branch of Germany's anti-Islam group PEGIDA which drew up to 400 people, a Reuters witness said. Northumbria police, which kept the two protests apart, said five people were arrested for alleged offences from assault to being drunk and disorderly, but that largely both demonstrations passed without any problems. The German organisation 'Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West' (PEGIDA), has for months been warning that Germany was being overrun by Muslims and held marches mostly in the city of Dresden.
