AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Members of far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders' Freedom Party are continuing to quit after he led supporters in chanting that they wanted "Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!" Moroccans in the Netherlands.

The incident Wednesday caused a major outcry and prosecutors -- who are weighing whether to charge Wilders with inciting hatred -- say they have given up trying to count all the discrimination complaints they have received.

Two elected party members resigned Saturday, raising the total to six since Wednesday, including the head of its delegation in European parliament and two members of Wilders' Dutch parliamentary faction. Wilders has called a press conference in The Hague on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile in Amsterdam, around 3,000 people gathered on Museum square for an anti-discrimination protest.
