Deportations in Austria: Antifa demonstrates for rapists and thugs


VIENNA. Refugee workers tried to prevent several rejected asylum seekers from being deported to Afghanistan in the Austrian capital. Up to 50 people, including members of the left-wing extremist “Autonomen Antifa Wien”, blocked a street and demanded the right to stay for those who were being deported. A major traffic jam formed in the direction of downtown Vienna. The police had to step in and clear the blockade.

As reported by the news portal Heute.at, the rejected asylum seekers included several men who in the past had committed serious crimes. Of the 37 people who were deported, eleven had already been convicted of one or more criminal offenses.

Coercion, assault, robbery, theft
For example, three men were found guilty of attempted and committed rape. In addition, there were offenses such as coercion, bodily harm, dangerous threats, deprivation of liberty, robbery, theft, damage to property, resistance to state authority and violations of the Narcotics Act. However, the Antifa protests were unsuccessful. The rejected asylum seekers could be deported to Afghanistan with the help of the EU border protection organization Frontex.

The Viennese protests commemorate the case of a young Afghan who entered illegally and was to be deported from Nuremberg in 2017. At that time, too, a larger group, including supporters of the left-wing extremist Antifa, tried to prevent his deportation. When he was arrested, the Afghan had threatened that he would be back in Germany in a month and kill Germans.

In the case of Vienna, too, one of the deportees had threatened several people with death. He had announced that he would kill the authorities and judiciary who were involved in his negative decision.

Only in January the deportation of three families to Georgia and Armenia caused a dispute in Austria's governing coalition of the ÖVP and the Greens. While the latter condemned the measure, Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) defended the deportation.
