Vienna, 20 November 2021 – Massive demonstration No vax – no lockdown a Vienna. About 30,000 people took to the streets to say no to the restrictions imposed by the Austrian government: the lockdown came into effect from Monday (lasts until December 13) and the vaccination obligation from February 1, 2022. The tension is high and there have been scuffles with the police, and several arrests.
In the heart of the protest they also appeared Italian flags, and a banner: ‘We are the Italian people’, a slogan already used by the no vax in the protests in our country. Almost no one wears a mask, counting on the Austrian rules that require it to be mandatory for mass events.
At least 1,300 agents were deployed in the square to monitor the protests. Among the demonstrators also far-right forces, such as the Fpoe, among the organizers, whose leader Hebert Kickl, positive for Covid, attacks the Austrian authorities accusing them of leading the country towards a dictatorship.
