50,000 oppose Haider

Issue No. 1673

SOME 50,000 people marched in Vienna in Austria on Friday of last week in protest at the Nazi Jörg Haider. It was one of the country's biggest political demonstrations since the Second World War.

For many people it was the first political demonstration they had been on. One member of the youth wing of the Social Democratic Party of Austria (equivalent to the Labour Party) told Socialist Worker, 'The anti-Nazi protest in London against Haider last month has helped to inspire resistance to him here.'
