During the past two nights Turkish #fascists
) attacked #Kurdish
and left-wing structures in #Vienna
On Wednesday (24.06), a Kurdish women’s rights march was attacked by at least 100 Turkish nationalists and fascists. The protesters withdrew to the autonomous centre Ernst-Kirchweger-Haus (#EKH
), in which left-wing Turkish and Kurdish unions also use rooms. The fascists besieged EKH, threatening to break in and stab the occupants. The Viennese left mobilised and thus hindered further attacks.Article (in German): https://www.bonvalot.net/graue-woelfe-greifen-in-wien-eine-linke-kundgebung-an-843/
In reaction to the attacks of the previous night, a march against fascism took place on Thursday (25.06.). Again, the march was flanked by Grey Wolves and MHP/AKP-sympathisers; attacks where thwarted by the protesters.
During the night, around 200-300 fascists again went for Kurdish and left-wing structures in the vicinity. The Kurdish-Turkish union club DIDF was violently attacked, the occupiers defending themselves with flagpoles. And again, EKH was a target: with attempted break-ins, fireworks, stones etc. hurled against the walls, broken windows ...Statement EKH (in German): https://emrawi.org/?Statement-zu-den-faschistischen-Angriffen-auf-das-Ernst-Kirchweger-Haus-987
