A few days before the entry into force of compulsory vaccination in Austria, the head of the secret service of the country says he is very worried about the radicalization of certain “extreme right” opponents of vaccines and anti-Covid-19 restrictions.

The new boss of Austrian internal intelligence is alarmed by the radicalization of activists opposed to anti-Covid vaccines and restrictions, who do not hesitate to cross borders to “spread their extremist ideology”. A trend that he says is “very worrying”.

In an interview with AFP – the first given to the foreign press – Omar Haijawi-Pirchner explains that the Alpine country is fertile ground for these protest movements due to the introduction of compulsory vaccination which will come into force on February 4. . The project triggered a wave of massive demonstrations in Vienna, which saw many foreigners flocking in – notably from neighboring Germany or Switzerland.

Many activists are strongly radicalized

The 41-year-old former police officer explains that “many activists are strongly radicalized” and take advantage of these moments of meeting to “hold meetings and build a network [avec] their far-right partners”, against a backdrop of “anti-Semitism”. According to him, they spread their ideas from capital to capital, according to the movements of fed up against health restrictions.

From France to the Netherlands, from Germany to Belgium, several European countries have been rocked by sometimes violent demonstrations in recent months. In Austria, Omar Haijawi-Pirchner claims to see “threats to critical infrastructure”, citing the media, politicians and health personnel among the targets. The authorities have also recently set up protective perimeters around hospitals and test and vaccination centers, for fear of overflows.
