[VIDEO] Vienna: Anti-Lockdown Demonstration on 31 January 2021


Statement of Michael Pröbsting, International Secretary of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT), 31 January 2021




Here is a video statement of Michael Pröbsting on the mass demonstration against the anti-democratic lockdown policy of the conservative-led government. Way more than 10,000 people demonstrated– despite a ban by the police which had been widely reported in advance by the media in order to deter people from joining.


The Austrian section of the RCIT denounces the lockdown policy of the government. It means nothing but an expansion of the police and surveillance state, restriction of democratic rights as well as creating gigantic business opportunities for big corporation – all under the cover of “fighting the pandemic”.


The RCIT has analysed the COVID-19 counterrevolution extensively since its beginning. Starting from 2 February we have published more than 70 pamphlets, essays, articles and statements plus a book which are all compiled at a special sub-page on our website: https://www.thecommunists.net/worldwide/global/collection-of-articles-on-the-2019-corona-virus/.
