While Israeli bombs continue to rain down on Gaza, Michael Pröbsting, International Secretary of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency, faces trial in Vienna on 2 May for defending the Palestinians and opposing the Zionist state. Charged with “incitement to commit terrorist offenses and approval of terrorist offenses,” Michael could serve up to two years in jail if found guilty. This would set a precedent for governments throughout Western Europe to criminalize all those who stand in defense of Palestine. Other activists, including two supporters of the International Marxist Tendency, have also been questioned by the Austrian state under the same “hate speech” legislation.

The International Communist League and its fraternal defense organizations call on the left, the Palestinian movement, and on all fighters for civil liberties, to protest Michael’s prosecution. Join us in organizing demonstrations outside as many Austrian embassies and consulates as possible in the days leading up to his 2 May trial.

Drop the charges against Michael Pröbsting!

Hands off pro-Palestinian protesters!
