    Fascist Vs Anti-Fascist protest in Vienna

     

    The far right pro fascists, Neu Recht, planned a demonstration in Vienna, Austria. The anti-fascists, Offensive Gegen Rechts, planned a counter protest . The police prepared for the worst, expecting a huge turnout including groups that were planning to travel in from other countries for the event. Violent confrontations were expected. The rallies were to meet and begin in Christian Boda Platz near Westbahnhof train station and then would march down Mariahilferstrasse toward the Hofburg/Heldenplatz.  A much smaller crowd showed up than what was expected.
