Austria: Thousands denounce far-right coalition in protest

About 20,000 people marched through the streets of Vienna on Saturday protesting against the new coalition government with the right-wing Austrian Freedom Party (FPO).

Protesters with placards and banners demanded other European countries boycott ministers who are members of the FPO.

About 1,000 police officers provided security during the march and the rally.

The far-right FPO recently reached a five-year deal with the Austrian People’s Party two months after the parliamentary elections.

In December, Austrian Chancellor and leader of Austrian People’s Party built a coalition with FPO which made it the only western European nation with a far-right party in government.
