Yesterday the protests in Vienna against the participation of the 
extreme right freedom party (FPOE) already started in the morning. 
The politicians of the peoples party (OEVP) and the FPOE where faced 
with spontaneous protests all the day. At 5 p.m. 3 000 protestors 
gathered in front of the Headquarter of the OEVP. They later went 
on to the office of the federal president, where FPOE, OEVP and 
the federal president finalized the coalition deal. The crowd was 
very loud and also even angrier than the day before. Afterwards 
the march went on to the HQ of the FPOE, where the streets 
where blocked by the police like before.

Later the protestors went on through the city for some hours, so 
fast and with spontaneous changes of the direction that the police 
sometimes even lost the contact to the demonstration. At 10 p.m. 
the march arrived at the parliament, still 500 protestors left. Then 
they chose to enter the Burgtheater (the most famous theater here 
in Austria) to stop the play and invite the audience to join the 
protests. Surprisingly some people in the audience reacted with 
standing ovations. The protestors went on, occupied a hotel for a 
short time and arrived at the FPOE-HQ again at 12 p.m. where 
they ended their march. Unfortunately at this point 1 protestor 
was arrested.

The passer-bys again reacted very friendly to the protestors. The 
protests are now also gaining more attention in the media.

On the negative side we have to correct ourselves. Other than 
stated before some of the names of the occupiers of the OEVP-HQ 
were noted by the police and so they will be sued by the OEVP.

Yesterday evening OEVP and FPOE reached a final agreement 
with the federal president and so the leader of the OEVP, Wolfgang 
Schuessel, was ordered to form a government. Today (Friday) the 
federal president of Austria, Thomas Klestil, will put them into 
duty. The more necessary it will be to show them from the 
beginning of their reign, that the resistance - in Austria and also 
intenational - will go on.

To give them a really bad start there will be a manifestation in 
front of the office of the federal president today at 11 a.m.
On Saturday there will be another march organised by human 
rights organizations.

Keep on fighting!
