Vienna Antisemitic Demonstration Passes Without Disturbance: Strong Police Cordons Prevent Attacks O

No disturbances have occurred in connection with the antisemitic open-air demonstration held here to-night in protest against the verdict of the Constitutional Court annulling the regulations of the University authorities under which the antisemitic student organisation enjoyed special privileges and against the use of State funds to save from bankruptcy the Credit-Anstalt, of which Baron Louis de Rothschild is President (actually the Vienna Rothschilds provided a sum of 30 million schillings-£870,000-the Austrian Government providing 100 million schillings, and the Austrian State Bank another 30 million schillings, in that way wiping out the heavy deficit of the Credit-Anstalt and saving Austria and the greater part of Europe from a gigantic financial disaster).

The Government gives money to save the Jewish Rothschilds, while the Austrian people are starving was the inscription on scores of banners carried at the demonstration, which was attended by many thousands of people.

Huge forces of police were brought out, forming a cordon round the meeting, and a strong police cordon was also thrown round the entire cafe district, effectually preventing any attempt by the demonstrators to attack the Jews frequenting the cafes.
