On 2nd May, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Austria published a report on the rise of racism, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia and right-wing extremism. In total, they estimate a 54% rise between 2014 & 2015.
On 22nd May, Austria will vote for its new president in the 2nd and final round. There are two candidates. The extreme right-wing party candidate had double the votes of the other candidate during the first round.
Please pray with us that people will reflect on what the extreme right movement and that they will remember the past and ask their parents and grandparents where such politics can lead to.
