Members of LEGIDA, the Leipzig arm of the anti-immigrant movement  Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) march past anti-LEGIDA protestors (top R) during a demonstration in Leipzig January 21, 2015. The weekly PEGIDA demonstrations began last October as a local protest against the building of new shelters for refugees, and have been growing in size. Counter-marches have taken place across Germany, with far larger numbers, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel has condemned the group in unusually strong language as racists "with hatred in their hearts." PEGIDA leaders deny they are racist and say they distinguish between the secular majority among Germany's 4 million Muslims and those trying to spread Muslim values.
