After the violent murder of the African-American family man George Floyd, who was killed by a policeman in the USA, protests against racism and police violence are now also taking place in Austria.

On Thursday, a rally and demonstration of the #BlackLivesMatter movement will be staged in Vienna at the Platz der Menschenrechte (Human Rights Square) near the Museumsquartier.

The deputy district leader of Vienna’s Inner City, Mireille Ngosso (SPÖ), is one of the organisers of the demonstration. “This demonstration is not intended to create a ‘we’ against ‘you’ or a ‘black’ against ‘white’. We want to create a US in which we are all treated with equal respect and meet as equals,” the politician and doctor from the Democratic Republic of Congo wrote on Facebook.
