Vienna. Austria. What happened on January 16 2021 afternoon in Vienna was a disgrace. It has taken me some time to process this, but there is no way that this can be allowed to remain unchallenged, or even just uncommented. Just to be perfectly clear, I entirely agree that there are more than enough reasons to criticise the neo-liberal response to this pandemic. The fact that public life has been shut down almost entirely for so long and all the insecurity that comes with that, is incredibly potent fuel for anger. Of course it is. I am angry too. I am sad too. I have no idea what will happen next, and that is an absolutely terrible situation to be in. But the reaction we saw in Vienna was sickening.

Vienna. What’s been going on in Vienna’s 10th district Favoriten over the last few days? According to media reports, there has been a confusing pile of information and demonstrations as well as alleged “counter-demonstrators”. For most of the media, the police and politicians, the events would result from a “war imported from abroad” between different “ethnic groups”, which is now being continued in the “problematic district” Favoriten. With this statement we try to give a first assessment of the situation, want to point out missing pieces of antifascist work in Vienna and discuss perspectives.

“We are in a new epoch of breakdown what will it mean to not have a horizon … to have no map of how act … to have only shifting sands to cling to and be in a world radically different than that of the last 10000+ years? What does green anarchy mean today.”

On Tuesday, January 14, 2020, a lecture by the right-wing professor Lothar Höbelt was actively prevented for the first time after weeks of protests in HS 50 of the University of Vienna. As a reaction to the first anti-fascist protest actions at the beginning of the semester in autumn, right-wing extremists have put together a hall guard with stewards in recent weeks consisting of identitarian movement activists, German national fraternity members and other right-wing extremists. This time, however, more than 200 anti-fascists came before they arrived…
