on the weekly thursdaydemonstration against the government in austria, wich takes place in vienna since february 2000, around 150 participated. we went to the headquaters from the conservativ rightextremist peoples party and the neofacist so called freedom party in vienna. the dayly boulevard newspaper wrote, that the demonstration will go to the place where the four heads from the parliament parties in austria where talking live on tv, because on sunday 24. of november 2002 their will be votes in austria, because the coalition between the peoples party and the freedom party crashed after two and half years.
but the demonstration didn't went to the tv-discussion on the austrian state tv, we went to the alternative radiostation radio orange 94 in wien, the local free radio station (http://www.orange.or.at).
austria is not member of the nato, it's part of the so called "partnership for peace". austrian minister of foreign affairs, mrs ferrero-waldner, is official delegation for austria in praha.
on the demonstration, we spread leaflets informing on the antinato-protests in praha and elsewhere and the repressive border situation (see the german text on http://www.no-racism.net/global/newsport/np021120_t00001.htm)
