Download PDF for this date

The Austrian Ministry of the Interior announced today it had dissolved the “Country Faithful Youth” organization because of its neo-Fascist activities.

Vienna police meanwhile ordered a ban on a torchlight parade planned by a similar group Saturday in the city. The Federal Organization of Austrian Youth Associations had protested the parade plans because of the sponsoring group’s neo-Fascist character.
