Protest in Vienna - level 2

Protest in Vienna - level 2

09-02-2016 15:00

The Austrian far-right Freedom Party in Vienna organised a ball. The ball takes place every year in the Homburg Palace, and it is part of the Viennese ball season. The ball usually attracts right-wing leaders from all over Europe, including members of the French National Front and German anti-Islam movement.

Some people do not like that the political groups organise a ball and they protest. Hundreds of police are in the streets to watch the protesters.

Difficult words: far-right (a group that believes that countries should stay traditional), front (an organised political group), movement (an organised political group).
