Cities against Islamisation (CAI) was an anti-Muslim initiative launched by Filip Dewinter of the Vlaams Belang party at a conference in Antwerp on 17 January 2008.[1]

According to the project's website:

The initiative involves representatives from a.o. Austria, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, The Netherlands and England, who signed a charter against the increasing Islamization of our cities. Among the participants there were a few well-known foreign politicians like Heinz-Christian Strache (president of the FPÖ), Markus Beisicht (president of Pro-Nordrhein Westfalen) and Robert Spieler (Alsace D’Abord).[2]

Agence France Presse reported:

"Parties from Britain (the British National Party), Denmark, Germany and Italy were also represented at the launch of the group which has a road-sign-style crossed-out mosque as its logo."[3]

In an email to Robert Spencer, Wim Van Osselaer of the Vlaams Belang denied claims that the BNP were present at the conference.[4]
