Hundreds of people took to the streets of the Austrian capital to demonstrate against the annual ball organised by the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPO) on Friday.
Protesters marched towards the ball’s venue in Hofburg Palace under the slogan ‘Offensive against the right-wing’. Several of them were detained at the rally.
The event, known as Wiener Akademiker Ball, has been held annually since 2013. It is attended by members of right-wing and far-right European parties.
