Austria: 90's hitmakers Vengaboys play for thousands at protest in Vienna

Austria, Vienna
May 31, 2019 at 03:11 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands of people gathered at the Ballhausplatz in Vienna on Thursday to protest against the Strache corruption to the sound of Dutch pop group the Vengaboys.

Under the moto 'We are together! Still and more than ever', protesters held signs against corruption and danced to the Vengaboys's 1990's hit 'We're going to Ibiza'. The song came back to life after the Strache scandal, also known as 'Ibizagate'.

Earlier in May two German publications posted a several-hours long secretly-recorded video on their websites, in which Strache, his parliamentary leader, Johann Gudenus, and an unidentified woman claiming to be the niece of a Russian oligarch discuss taking control of the country's largest-circulation tabloid in order to help the Freedom Party (FPO) in future elections.

The purported deal was allegedly made in exchange for public contracts. Strache resigned on May 19.
