Political debates, solidarity with the anti-fascist movement in the Ukraine, singing of workers songs, sports and a special political quiz - that was this year's international Pfingstseminar, organized by the Austrian Marxist journal Der Funke.

The protests were very successful and indicate a radical mood developing among the youth in Austria.
