    Austria has been under its third lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic since late December, with all non-essential businesses closed and people's movement restricted.

    Watch a live broadcast from Vienna's Heldenplatz where activists are gathering on Saturday to protest against the government's measures aimed at curbing the spread of the COVID-19 infection.

    A rally was organised by the 'Querdenken' movement, which considers the coronavirus restrictions as a violation of the constitutional rights. 

    On 26 December, the Austrian authorities announced a third wave of measures, closing all non-essential businesses and restricting people's movements.
