Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Riot police stand by for 'Anti-Islamisation Conference' - Europe, World - The Independent

Thousands of extra riot police were drafted into Cologne today to cope with expected violence between militant right and left-wing protesters as a bitterly contested pan-European "Anti-Islamisation Conference" got underway in the German cathedral city.

The three-day event is being staged by the city's far right "Pro Cologne" organisation which is campaigning to stop the construction of a mosque in a suburb and claims that Germany has fallen victim to creeping "Islamisation." The group has recently won seats on the city council.

Fittingly the only government represented at the anti-Islamic meet is Italy. The Lega Nord, staunch Berlusconi ally with several key ministries, has its notorious hate-monger and crypto-Nazi Borghezio there.

It seems Le Pen will not attend.
