Several thousand people took part in the weekly demonstration in Vienna against the right-wing black-brown federal government under Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP). The seventh such demonstration on a Thursday was under the motto "We are now together".
The focus of the protest, which was organised by mainly left-wing groups but whose participants reached into the bourgeois camp, was the erosion of workers' rights and the simultaneous collective bargaining in the metal industry. For this reason, the demonstration also passed by the headquarters of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, where the trade unionists who were negotiating solidarised with the protest - and vice versa.
Some participants, wearing a fes, criticised the recently published racist video of the FPÖ on the subject of social abuse.
The slogan "It's Thursday again" dates back to the year 2000, when weekly demonstrations against the first edition of the video were held in Vienna by conservative ÖVP and right-wing radical FPÖ.
Around 500 people take part in a rally in Berlin under the motto "Against Anti-Semitism! For Israel! For Jerusalem". The group "March for Life" as well as other Christian groups had called. A group of young people rapped the haTikwa, Israel's national anthem. The main speaker was Arye Sharuz Shalicar, former press officer of the Israeli army.
Participants will use signs to show solidarity with Israel and for an undivided Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Syrians and supporters hold a rally in Berlin to commemorate the fate of the prisoners of the Syrian regime.
Tens of thousands of people, including children, are held in inhumane conditions in the prisons and torture basements of the Bashar al-Assad regime. Torture and hunger are the order of the day. The activists also remind of people abducted by Daesh, including children.
Around 150 people take part in a rally in front of the US Embassy in Berlin to protest against the Trump Administration's recent plans to discriminate against transgender and intersexual people. A draft of the US Department of Health provides for the binary determination of gender at birth between male and female.
