But Mahdi Qasqas with the Muslim Council of Calgary says the protest was about more than this latest video.
“This is not the only hate-filled, hate-speech video that’s out there — there are many," Quaqas said. "Hate is not just a phenomena that’s related to Muslims. It’s related to all minorities all non-dominant population groups and we’re here to stop all of that.”
The film has sparked angry and sometimes violent demonstrations in more than 20 nations around the world.
