The tragic attack in Paris earlier this month reignited perennial debates – constantly bubbling below the surface – about immigration and Islam in Europe. The past weeks have seen massive protests against immigrants and the Muslim community, and even larger demonstrations of support for a community that is inclusive for all faiths and nationalities. Our show’s producer – Ray Kirstein – was in Leipzig, Germany last week and participated in the largest of these pro-immigration demonstrations. He’ll come on air this week and discuss with Welton what the view from Leipzig was this week, what was behind this demonstration, and where he thinks Europe is going from here.
