Over the weekend, a planned anti-Muslim rally in Calgary took place at City Hall drawing out many Calgarians with opposing views.

The World Coalition Against Islam had put up an event post on social media, saying a ‘Patriotic Festival’ would be happening, featuring bands and speeches to make a stand against Islam.

Today, the group commented about their rally’s low attendance and anger towards city officials for changing the site of their anti Muslim protest.

The Anti Muslim rally was met by members of Calgary Anti-Fascist Action (AFA) who gathered on the other side of the City Hall, as well a few dozen people watching the two sides rally.

Here are some pictures from this weekend’s protest, and protest of protest.
