Issue no. 62 of the European Race Bulletin includes information on:
- Over thirty local campaigns against mosque and minaret building, schools and the Qur’an;
- Over twenty local or national initiatives on religious clothing;
- Islamaphobic, anti-Roma or anti-asylum-seeker campaigns mounted in seventeen countries.
