Police cordoned off demonstrators protesting evening balls held by Austria’s far right fraternities in Vienna on January 26. In this footage, protesters walk down one of Vienna’s main thoroughfares on the south side of the inner city chanting, “Nazis out,” and setting off fireworks. Multiple politicians attended the balls hosted by Austria’s fraternities, seen as a stronghold of nationalists and members of the far right. Among them was Heinz-Christian Strache, the vice chancellor and leader of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPO), local media reported. FPO entered a governing coalition with the Conservative Party (OVP) in December 2017. Credit: Kevin Fekete via Storyful
