Jewish activists storm Austrian Parliament to condemn Gaza genocide
A group of Jewish activists who oppose Israeli carnage have stormed the Austrian Parliament Building in Vienna to voice their rejection of the “massacre” and “genocide” committed by Israel in besieged Gaza.
Russia Today, citing eyewitnesses, stated that a group of young Jewish activists belonging to an organisation called “Don’t Speak for Us”, which opposes the positions of the Israeli government, interrupted a session of the Austrian parliament on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, shouting “Stop the genocide” and denouncing the Israeli crimes of ethnic cleansing in besieged Gaza.
The activists raised Palestinian flags and threw leaflets inside the Parliament Building while chanting slogans demanding an end to the genocide in Gaza before police intervened and forced them out.
