Thousands of people took to the streets of capital city of Austria Vienna on Saturday to protest the government’s COVID-19 restrictions. Several demonstrations are scheduled in Vienna for today. The largest one gathered at the Heldenplatz square, from where it will march through the Ringstrasse street, which encircles the central district of Vienna. One thousand four hundred police officers are deployed for providing security during the protest. Vienna was rocked by anti-restrictions protests also on last Saturday. The organisers claimed that one lakh people were present last week.

Austria imposed another lockdown in late November, which will end tomorrow for the recovered patients and vaccinated while remaining in place for those who have not received their shot.
