The Real Salzburg Story

by Cayce Tuesday, Jul. 03, 2001 at 2:39 AM

Eyewitness timeline of Salzburg events

[update 01:31] The 12 arrested people have been released

[update 23:29] Everyone has left the encirclement and is escorted by police to the central station, where a special train in the direction of Vienna waits for them. Supposedly, no one is forced to leave on this train.

[update 23:11] Protesters are still leaving the encirclement in small groups. First they are brought in front of the encirclement, where they are again surrounded by police. Protesters whom the police have selected out in their

search are allowed to join the rest of the protesters outside the central station after the police have checked their IDs. It appears that pecking-order competition between the Gendamerie and the WEGA police (Vienna "RoboCops") is the cause of this confusion.

For more info, photos and video, check the below link.

[update 10:48pm] Closed off from the encirclement, on the corner of Wolf-Dietrich Alley and Hubert-Sattler Alley, there is a spontaneous demonstration of about 100 people.

om [update 10:19pm] The police ask the protestors to line up in front of the police, in five rows of ten people, to leave the encirclement. According to their own statements the cops want to recognize "criminals". Thereupon the

encircled line up in the demanded formation. The single groups are watched several minutes by the cops. The first groups are allowed to leave the encirclement, although the cops have arrested selected individuals of these groups.

[update 9:51pm] Residents throw down food supplies to the captives.

[update 9:40pm] At central station there is a gathering of about 150 people with a soundsystem.

[update 9:37pm] The public relations office of the police affirms the use of tear-gas against those still encircled.

[update 9:28pm] The police offer the protestors the chance to leave the encirclement as a demonstration in lines of ten people for the central station. The protestors line up in rows of ten people.

[Update 9:22pm] The police offer the protestors the chance to leave the encirclement in lines of ten people. The captives decline this offer.

[update 9:07pm] Although the protestors have handed over all "dangerous material," there is no change; they are still kept in the encirclement. Police have brought along light support.

[update 8:59pm] The riot cops have withdrawn from the info-point and, according to their own statements, gone to dinner.

[update 8:42pm] The police offer the encircled protesters the chance to move to the centeral-station as complete group. The condition is massive police-escortation and leaving behind all "dangerous material".

[update 8:30pm] Police continue to attack the encirclement and try to press the people closer together. The protestors sing and shout "no violence".

[update 8:25pm] The police attack the encircled protesters with riot-sticks and dogs and continously drag people out of the encirclement.

[update 8:14pm] The police arrest a selected person out of the encirclement.

[update 8:10pm] Meanwhile five of the people who have "voluntarily" left the encirclement have been arrested by the police.

[update 7:51pm] Situation at the encirclement is unchanged. The police are still asking the protesters within to leave the encirclement one by one. About ten people have left the encirclement just now. The police obtained their particulars and threatened them with penalties. One person was the victim of harrassment that was supposedly motivated by racism. The majority of the protestors, not wishing to become isolated, declines this offer to leave the encirclement one by one.

[update 7:35pm] Riot police blocks the Info-point and wants to obtain the particulars of all people within.

[update 7:26pm] At the central station there is a solidarity demonstration of about 100 Socialist Youth.

[update 7:20pm] Riot police forces have marched up in front of the Info-point.

[update 7:18pm] The police ask the protesters to leave the encriclement one by one.

[update 7:00pm] 2 prison vans have reached the encirclement.

[update 6:41pm] A group of 50 to 100 protestors who were moving from the central station towards the encirclement, was stopped by the police near the encirclement and pushed off the street.

[update 6:22pm] There is a negotiation team outside the encirclement (including Walter Baier, Communist Party chariman), which has been negotiating with the police for a free withdrawal to the central train station for over half an hour.

[update 6:05pm] The Socialist Youth demonstration walks towards the police encirclement, is separately encircled and is allowed to withdraw under police escort.

Detailed summary of the events from 2pm to 6pm here.
