Austria: Right-wing MPs hand out free pepper spray in Vienna

Two MPs from the right-wing Team Stronach party distributed free pepper spray in front of parliament in Vienna, Monday.

Robert Lugar and Martina Schenk gave out around 200 pepper sprays in a matter of minutes as women, most of whom were middle-aged, queued up to get their hands on one.

Lugar critisied the Austrian police and government, claiming that people are feeling less and less safe . He went on to blame this on refugees, saying that, "we need to send back all immigrants from Austria, and there are 300,000 of them here", adding that there is a need for more controls.

SOT, Robert Lugar, Member of Austrian Parliament (German): "The safety feeling in Austria is getting much and much worse. We must to do something. The police fails here, the Austrian government has failed, and the people in Austria - you have seen it today - are feeling more and more insecure. And a pepper spray is increasing your safety feeling, because if you are having an emergency, [the pepper spray] is a possibility to defend yourself."

SOT, Robert Lugar, Member of Austrian Parliament (German): "First we need to send back all immigrants from Austria, and there are 300,000 of them here in Austria. Next we should not let it more of them, without controls, without knowing, what their plans are. And of course we need more police on the street, which are taking care for safety. And we - the taxpayers - are expecting that. And we have the right to expect that."
