The Salafites had originally planned to hold a public gathering in the city center to raise money for Muslims in Syria which included prominent speakers such as radical Islamic preacher Pierre Vogel. They then moved the event to a private gathering in Neukoelln district. Salafites are an ultra-conservative group of Muslim Sunnis with hundreds of members in Berlin and the area around Bonn and Cologne. German authorities are keeping a close eye on the group, especially since clashes that broke out last year in which Salafite demonstrators attacked police and right-wing counter-demonstrators.
