Report24 was there to get an idea. While system media spat poison and bile and rushed as much as they could, we only met normal people on site. Including thousands of nurses, recognizable by their white hats. According to our records, at least 100,000 people must have demonstrated in Vienna, a significantly larger number is possible. It is one of the most successful rallies – if not the most successful – of the 2nd Republic. At least now it is clear: system critics are not alone!
A comment by Florian Machl
The Austrians have no desire for dictatorship and a rule of dark, never elected shadow men. They don’t feel like being forced to have genetic substances injected just because someone imagines it. People want to live in freedom in their beautiful country. They made this clear in Vienna on November 20, 2021 – and politicians would be well advised to respect that.
Our video is a historical document that serves as evidence of how naughty the purchased system media lie. Initially, RTL reported 7,000 participants, later they corrected themselves to the number which was presumably given by the ÖVP interior ministry: 35,000. Austrian media reported “tens of thousands”, most of them later corrected lower numbers to the alleged police estimate. The truth is probably beyond 100,000 – in isolated cases estimates of up to 350,000 have been made.
Anyone looking for a comparison to other large-scale demonstrations in Austria will find the “SOS Mitmensch Lichtermeer” on the Internet. The author of these lines was there himself in 1993. At that time there were neither 200,000 people on the road, because Heldenplatz was anything but full at the time. It was still an event that took place out of the conviction of most of the participants – because the SPÖ, trade unions and apron organizations from all over Austria drove them to the event by bus. It was a political struggle to save the then badly ailing party. The party leader at the time, Vranitzky, did everything to prevent it from sliding into insignificance. Among other things, he justified the exclusion of all patriots who united under the banner of the Haider-FPÖ and gave the starting signal for media agitation and dehumanization of the liberal with the Vranitzky doctrine.
Today, in spite of all the hatred of those who thought differently, they marched against them People of all political camps hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder through Vienna. The march reached around the entire ring. A time of reconciliation has dawned when many people understand that it is not about “left” versus “right”, but about freedom versus totalitarianism.
