The Salzburg-based NGO „Infoladen“ calls for violence against Christians when expressing pro-life views.

In between long paragraphs of prejudices, the NGO „Infoladen“ admits that it has already used intimidation and anti-democratic means in the attempts of silences pro-life Christians: „They just do not want to understand. Although last summer it was made sufficiently clear to Human Life International, Euro Pro Life and Youth for Life, that they and their anti-women processions are not welcome in Salzburg, they are planning another manifestation on July 25. ... Last year, the march was disturbed by blockades and successfully shortened through the courageous intervention of emancipatory activists. The closing ceremony of the fundamentalists had to take place virtually in the exclusion of the public.“ They also pronounce a meeting point fort he counter manifestation on July 25th. No names of the leadership of the NGO nor the main organizers are given online. Source: http://infoladensalzburg.wordpress.com/2012/06/27/25-7-pro-choice-demo-1000-kreuze-versenken/#more-896
