250 Catholic demonstrators against open shops on 8th December in Salzburg

“Zero tolerance for open shops on 8th December”, was the motto of 250 Catholic demonstrators in the city centre of Salzburg yesterday. The ultra religious group called “Catholic Action” can’t endure open shops and busy humans with loads of shopping bags on December the 8th.

“Our 8th December is called Maria Empfängnis and not Maria Shopping”, explained on of the protesters to journalists. Even local celebrities took part in the protest. One of them, a famous TV man, was talking about the fact that the church did not try to popularise the 8th December as a clerical feast day.
