Thousands of people attended the commemoration honouring Croatian fascists and civilians who were killed at the end of World War II. The commemoration included a religious ceremony and political speeches. A counter-protest was reportedly held and a heavy police presence was deployed. The annual event has reportedly grown since the declaration of the Croatian independence in 1991, drawing... Еще criticism within Austria and across Europe. Several different political parties, anti-fascist groups and human rights NGOs has called on the Austrian state of Carinthia to ban the gathering. Opponents to the event argue that Neo-fascists groups would use the commemoration to promote their views.
