From Women in Black in Vienna.

They Report:

There have been two mass demonstrations for Gaza in Vienna thus far.  There will certainly be more.

We had a vigil at the Israeli Embassy on Tuesday, which received much publicity..many photographers and journalists came from the Austrian Press Agency.  The Ambassador came out to talk but dialogue with such a person is impossible.

[The photograph] is of  yesterday’s vigil of our group, sympathizers, and the Jewish Voice for a Just Peace.  We have had a lot of interest, there have been interviews, etc.  We were at the Israeli Embassy on Tuesday and many photographers and journalists came from the Austrian Press Ageny.   Today, in the Sunday paper (Kurier) I had a two page interview and the woman brought everything exactly as I said it.   It is the first time we have had publicity in one of the main newspapers.  They also gave two sentences about Women in Black’s focus and work.

The media is no longer silent in Vienna….it took a long time.

best wishes in these horrible times,
