Vienna mayor wants right-wing group banned
Vienna's Mayor Michael Häupl (SPÖ) has called for a ban on a right-wing group calling themselves Die Identitaere Bewegung (The Identity Movement).
Last Saturday a march by the group in central Vienna resulted in clashes between protesters and police after it was obstructed several times by a left-wing counter-demonstration.
"A group like this should have been banned a long time ago," Häupl said at his weekly press conference. "This is a neo-fascist organization that quite clearly falls under the prohibition act," he added.
