Solidarity March for Moria - arrived in Vienna

On Friday we left Mödling at 7.20 am for our last stage. After exhausting asphalt kilometres, we arrived at Ballhausplatz in the greatest heat. Two grannies against the right were there with a banner for the reception of people seeking protection. After a few moments, so did the police. The big UmbrellaMarch was moved to the neighbouring Heldinnenplatz. There, later on, field positions including ...

This night we stayed at a campsite and had ...

Solidarity March for Moria

The "Wochenende für Moria" initiated in Innsbruck moved the whole of Austria in a relatively short time and encouraged other cities in Austria to organise these camps as well. The solidarity of civil society with those seeking protection on the Greek islands and at the European external borders such as in Bosnia was made clearly visible for months. With these actions, we all demand humane accommodation for ...
