Police on a large scale – 28 demos in Vienna: Numerous participants expected

It will be demonstrated again: Numerous rallies have also been announced this Saturday in Vienna, including opponents of the corona measures and the compulsory vaccination. Since it is the only weekend on which Viennese retailers open their doors in the run-up to Christmas, many stand rallies take place. The police are once again on duty with a large number. Numerous demo participants are expected again.

According to the police, 38 demonstrations had been reported for Saturday, nine of which were banned and one gathering was rejected. Among other things, a rally of the MFG on Schwarzenbergplatz has been announced. Since this weekend – this time the shops are also open on Sunday – increased traffic and an influx of people were generally expected, there were talks with the organizers of the demos to refrain from mobile protest trains. “As a result of these negotiations, there will be several stand rallies in the inner-city area,” said the Vienna police on Friday, who are again deployed with a large number of forces. Demonstrations by opponents of the measures have also been announced in other Austrian cities on Saturday, for example in Innsbruck as well as in Klagenfurt. # YesWeCareA silent campaign, which is supposed to set an example against division, hate speech and radicalization, will also take place on Sunday. From 6.30 p.m. there will be a chain of lights on Wiener Ring in memory of the victims of the pandemic and to show solidarity with the health workers.
