Event

A protest is slated to be held in front of Vienna Mitte station at 18:00 (local time) on Thursday, December 6. A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration site.   

Context

The planned December 6 protests mark the tenth iteration of weekly protests organized by groups opposed to the far-right components of the current governing coalition. Though the original impetus for the protests centered around Austria's new environmental and immigration policies, the scope of the protesters' grievances has expanded in subsequent protests.

Advice

Individuals in Vienna are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
