This news is from Vienna, Austria. The Austrian Freedom Party organises a ball. The party is a far-right party. The ball is part of the Viennese ball season.

Some people do not like the ball. They protest against the far-right ball of the party. Police go in the streets. They watch the protesters.

Difficult words: party (a political group), ball (a traditional event at which people dance, talk and have fun), far-right party (people that believe a country should stay very traditional).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
