"We are fighting for the realization of a world based on justice and freedom." (the protesting refugees in Berlin)

The suicide of Mohammad Rahsepar in a German asylum camp at the beginning of the year was followed by street protests in several German cities, which lasted for months. Since then, refugees are protesting against inhuman treatment by the German authorities. In September, the protesters marched to Berlin in a 600 km-long demonstration, where they are calling attention to their circumstances through a vigil lasting several weeks and a hunger strike on the Pariser Platz. State and police reacted with massive repression. Now some first talks between the protesters and representatives of the government have taken place. (::

Protests for the rights of asylum seekers are currently also taking place in other countries, e.g. Finland, Belgium and Poland.

We declare our solidarity with these struggles!

And what is happening in Austria?

Aslylum seekers, refugees and illegal immigrants [...] are living in precarious circumstances in Austria! For example, many wait for months for the results of their asylum proceedings.

They are not allowed to work. Access to German courses is made difficult. Through the accommodation in asylum homes, they are denied freedom and access to certain resources. Furthermore, they are entirely at the mercy of the authorities.

Austria deports people to regions where they face war and persecution. These are only some of the difficulties that asylum seekers, refugees and illegal immigrants in Austria have to struggle with.

But things are happening!

In October, Somalian refugees demonstrated in front of the parliament for three days. They are demanding:

Let us support these protests in Austria and all over the world!
Bring protest signs! Plan decentral actions!

"Take to the street, because that is the place where oppressed bodies unite to acquire freedom and justice. Politics belongs to the people and not to politicians." (The protesting refugees in Berlin)

No humans are illegal!
