Dutch far-right group Pro Patria has announced its supporters will take the streets in the Netherlands to campaign for freedom of expression and against Muslims.
The announcement came on Wednesday as anti-Muslim rallies spread across Europe following last week's gun massacre at the Paris headquarters of the French satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo.
The far-right group said on its Facebook page it would hold its "March for Freedom" on Feb. 28. to call on politicians to "defend our freedoms".
About 1,000 supporters confirmed they would participate in the event, the venue for which has yet to be decided.
"Looking away is not an option anymore. The Paris attack was a lesson to us," Pro Patria said.
The event will be Pro Patria's second national demonstration, after it protested last August against the ISIL.
The mayor of The Hague, Jozias Van Aartsen, announced a temporary ban on the demonstration in The Hague neighborhoods after violence emerged between rival groups.
Aartsen also banned a pro-Israeli, anti-ISIL rally that was scheduled for September 2014, saying it was "too provocative".
Many anti-Muslim rallies have spread across Europe in the wake of the Paris attacks, with German far-right group PEGIDA - standing for Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West - opening many branches across Europe including France, Austria and the Netherlands.
