Millions would have been preferable, but it's a start - and it'll get to the millions level sooner rather than later, at the rate Eurabia is evolving, courtesy of the European left:
A march by Germany's anti-Islamic organisation Pegida drew thousands to the eastern city of Dresden on Saturday with rallies in support of the movement also held in a string of other European cities.
In Prague, around five thousand people turned out for a Pegida-inspired march organised by two "far-right" groups, while in Amsterdam mounted police charged pro- and anti-Pegida groups and arrested at least a dozen people.
Would the "anti-Pegida" group be characterizable as "far left"? AFP won't say.
Another rally in the northern French port of Calais, home to the infamous "Jungle" refugee camp for [Muslim]s seeking passage across the Channel to Britain, brought about twenty arrests, local authorities said.
Police there responded with tear gas after scuffles broke out.
The Pegida group had called for the Saturday rallies, urging supporters to march under the anti-[Muslim] banner of "Fortress Europe".
<wince> Whichever numbnut selected that label is historically illiterate. Or else isn't. But that's the direction in which the E.U.'s culturally suicidal immigration policy is taking the Continent. If they don't want to go back in that direction, they'll follow Pegida's advice.
The group began as a movement in Germany in mid-2014 and has spread to other countries as Europe grapples with its worst "refugee" crisis since World War II.
"Biggest invasion since the Cold War" would be more a more accurate description.
Several thousand Pegida supporters turned up in Dresden under clear blue skies to march along the banks of the River Elbe to protest against mass immigration and what they call the "Islamisation" of Europe.
It's not what "they call" it; it's what is actually happening, at an ever-accelerating pace. Christian Europe ceased to exist decades ago; now "post-Christian" Europe is spiraling down the same drain. And since demographics abhor vacuums as much as nature does....
....this is the result with which we're ending up, and years sooner than even the most cynical among us suspected.
At least the Pegida movement indicates that Europe's cultural "immune system" isn't completely extinguished. Is it too little, too late? I'd rather not have to answer that question.
UPDATE: This statement nails it:
A statement by organizers of the various marches elsewhere in Europe said they were “aware of the fact that the thousand-year history of Western civilization could soon come to an end through Islam conquering Europe, and the fact that the political elites have betrayed us.” [emphases added]
