On 20 October 2014, the first demonstration of Pegida was held in the german city of Dresden:it gathered some five hundred people .However every racist gathering organized y Pegida on mondays in Germany faces faces anti-racist demonstrations 
Pegida  gathers mainly people close to the extreme right, but until now no studies have shown that Pegida is a political organization.
Scapegoats for Pegida are essentially foreigners, Muslims, politicians and the media.
On 6th February 2016, the Movement has organized demonstrations in 14 European countries. But the protests were not successful despite the rise of the extreme right in Europe.
