Nearly 3,000 people marched through the city center in protest against the annual so-called Academics Ball in the Austrian capital of Vienna, sponsored by the right-wing Freedom Party. Smaller that last year’s, the rally passed peacefully under the watchful eye of police. Some 2,700 police officers were deployed to ensure security at the rally.
