Germany AfD: Right-wingers set to move further right

This article talks about a protest that occurred over the weekend against members of the anti immigration party AfD or alternative for Germany. The reason people were protesting was that Frauke Petry who was the co leader of the party wanted to move the party into a more mainstream position which the party rejected. This article goes into detail about the protest in regard to how many people were there, and police interaction with the protesters.  The article then talks about the recent past of the party and what it has accomplished and why it has become popular among German citizens. Overall after reading this article it reminds that there is a rising populist sentiment among the native born people of Europe that seems like it won’t end soon.
