5. januar 2015
Først danske forsøg på at gennemføre en dansk anti-muslimsk og anti-indvandrer Pegida-demonstration i Haderslev bliver mødt med langt større moddemonstration. Organiseret af yderste højrekræfter forsøger Pegida at gennemføre manifestation flere steder i landet. I København bliver det anledning til en række faste mandags-demoer "for mangfoldighed", og debat om Pegida-talspersonen Nicolai Sennels’ faglige etik og ansættelse, bl.a. på Modkraft blogs.

Citater
Vi oplevede også i 1960´erne og 1970´erne at blive kaldt antiamerikanske, fordi vi protesterede mod USA's krigsførelse i Vietnam. Men vi fik inspirationen til vores protest fra amerikanere. Vi lyttede til Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Simon & Garfunkel og læste Jack Kerouac, William Faulkner og Mary McCarthy.
