(en) CZECH, AFED: ANTI-fascist MOBILIZATION - Vienna's EKH faces fascist attacks on the third day -- Call for support for an autonomous center [machine translation]

Date Wed, 1 Jul 2020 09:49:53 +0300

On Wednesday 24.6. Turkish fascists attacked Kurdish assembly for women's rights in Vienna's Favoriten district. Subsequently, there was another attack on the protesters by the fascists in front of the autonomous center Ernst-Kirchweger Haus (EKH). The response was a spontaneous demonstration in front of the EKH, during which police carried out racially biased identity checks and detained a detainee. ---- The next day, during a hastily convened demonstration against the fascist attacks, the Turkish fascists again tried to provoke, disrupt the action and attack the protesters. After the demonstration ended and the police withdrew despite the apparently impending escalation, members of the far-right Gray Wolves, supporters of Erdogan's AKP party and self-proclaimed "Favoriten guards" regrouped in the area and attacked EKH. 200-300 fascists roamed Wielandgasse for a long time. Using stones, bottles and pyrotechnics, they targeted EKH and tried to force their way into the building. Several windows on the ground floor were broken. Only thanks to the solidarity of anti-fascists and anti-fascists has the worse been prevented. The police remained inactive for a long time.

This was the second attack on left-wing and autonomous structures and actions in Vienna in two days, and we assume that this was not the last attack. These attacks are linked to the repressive policies of Erdogan's Turkey, which is currently terrorizing the Kurdish population and bombing Kurdish territory. However, we also perceive these attacks in the context of the long history of attacks on EKH, which also houses Kurdish organizations. Our solidarity therefore belongs to all the people affected by the Turkish aggression, both in the Kurdish territories and in this country, and to all those who stand for a fairer society.

We call on all anti-fascist people to express solidarity and take part in further protests!

Next date:
SATURDAY 27 June Vienna - Columbusplatz, 5.30 pm
(5 min walk from Wien-Hauptbahnhof train and bus station)

Never fascism again!
Biji Berxwedan! Jin, Jiyan, Azadi!

Current update:

The fascists called in reinforcements from other cities and surrounding countries, and Friday's anti-fascist demonstration around EKH again faced attacks from the side streets by scattered fascist militias. Everyone to Vienna!
