Today it has been three weeks since a group of activists fighting against the growing dictatorship in Austria decided to set up a protest camp in downtown Vienna. The protest is primarily directed against the impending vaccination requirement.
Several tents have been set up in the city park and a group of around 50 people has been there permanently for 21 days. In the first days this camp was set up on Heldenplatz, but a few days later it was moved to this park near the Andreas Zelinka monument.
Today I visited this camp and shot this film.
The protest camp will stay until next Tuesday, November 30th. and ends with a stroll through the city. The participants received permission from the Austrian authorities to protest and the march that ended the protest. The approval was necessary because we will have a lockdown in Austria again from November 22nd.
The weather forecast for the next few days predicts a temperature between 0 °C and 5 °C (32 °F – 41 °F).
Friday, November 26th, 2021. Today at 4 a.m. the police disband the camp against corona measures in the city park.
