solidarity demo in 
Starting point: 
at 2pm Traiskirchen 
train station / Badner Bahn

Then protest march and rally at the gate of the refugee camp
These days, we are witnessing a shocking scenario: The refugee 
camp in Traiskirchen – for years a place where refugees have to 
struggle against inhumane and discriminatory conditions – 
is becoming more and more a laboratory for new methods of 
repression and exclusion against refugees. 
Hundreds of people are sleeping in the heat or in thunder 
storms in tents, on the floor or completely outside. Others are 
getting distributed over Austria and put in tent camps, while 
national and local governments are disputing whether tents, 
containers, army barracks or remote pensions in the mountains 
are the right places for further accomodation. 

Latest coup: the planned forced relocation of refugees 
from Austria to Slovakia. The Austrian state, represented by 
the ministry of interior, is making people homeless, although it 
would not have to be any problem to provide homes for them. 
If they pretend that there is no space, this is a bloody lie: There 
are empty buildings in every city and it would even be no 
problem for the state to support refugees to rent private 
appartments – if they were willing to do so. 

What the interior ministry and Austrian politicians want to 
achieve is something different: By creating a scenario of 
catastrophy, they try to justify the closure of Austria and of 
Europe and a brutal policy of deportation. The political parties 
ÖVP, FPÖ and SPÖ, without any big difference between them, 
are searching to gain votes in future elections by practicing 
racist hardliner policies against refugees. What they are doing 
with people in Traiskirchen and in Austrian tent camps ist the 
direct continuation of creating more and more border fences 
and detention centers all over Europe and of the murderous 
war against refugees in the Mediterranean.
It is more than high time to rise up and to resist actively against 
this uggly and racist asylum policy of the interior ministry and 
the Austrian state! 
And it is high time to listen to the people in Traiskirchen, 
whose own voice is ignored most times, how they see their own 
situation, what they want, what they demand and to support 
their daily struggle. Again and again, refugees in Traiskirchen 
resist against the daily horrible conditions and have to face 
repression for their struggle – like last week those who blocked 
the gate of the Traiskirchen refugee camp, protesting against 
forced transfer to Eisenstadt tent camp, and were brutally 
arrested by the police.
Come to Traiskirchen, let’s show them a warm and solidary 
„Refugees welcome“!
Solidarity with the struggles of the refugees, stop 
repression against refugee protest!
Appartments and freedom of movement for all instead 
of tents, homeless conditions, lagers and forced 
Stop deportation, abolish „Dublin III“ and all 
deportation laws!
