Kim Andersen, city council member for Venstre, a (nominally) centre/right party on DR: “Freedom of expression for extremists, BUT ….”
A group of Arabic looking young men are watching the demonstration in front of the art museum Aros, in company with Antifa types. It is reported that three of them have tried to penetrate the EDL demonstration, but were stopped by police. Police keep an eye on the group and ensures that it cannot attack the demo.

WTF! TV2Østjylland are using the fascist Jacob C. Senholt as an “expert on the extreme right” on live TV.
The main demonstartion in Mølleparken is starting now. There are about 75 taking part, among them people with the Israeli, German and Norwegian flag. Antifa claim to have spread butyric acid in the park was false. Al-Jazeera reports demonstrationern.
Reasonably balanced speaker on DR regarding the EDL/DDL demonstrators attending the Mølleparken event. No mention or acknowledgment of the Israeli flags visible, but as with the communist flags at the counter demo, pictures hopefully tell the true story better than MSM reporters do.
