Austria: Thousands Protest as Far-Right Government Sworn In

HeadlineDec 19, 2017

In Vienna, thousands of people rallied Monday to protest Austria’s newly seated far-right government, which includes members of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party, which was founded after World War II by former members of the Nazi party. Outside the presidential palace, police used water cannons to turn back protesters who chanted, “Refugees welcome” and “Nazis out.” This is protester Fam Fiskal.

Fam Fiskal: “I believe Austria should remain open. Clearly, we’re a small country and can’t take everyone in, but we should also avoid producing general suspects and being generally hostile to migrants and refugees.”
