An Austrian academician warned here of the “subtle forms of everyday fascism” that he said are “creeping up even within the democratic parties” and urged that they be fought. Prof. Anton Pelinka spoke at a meeting of the Anti-Fascist Committee attended by some 200 persons from all over Austria last weekend. He said it was necessary to differentiate between outright fascist groups such as the Aktion Neue Rechte (ANR) and the National Democratic Party (NDP) and the less overt groups which insinuate themselves into democratic institutions. All political parties must fight these attitudes jointly, he said.
