Migration is Not a Crime - Inform.Listen.Organize.

It´s been exactlly two years since the verdicts in the so-called #Fluchthilfeprozess trial in Wiener Neustadt against eight refugees - most of them being activists in the Refugee Protest Camp Vienna. Today, we want to stand in solidarity with all migrants and refugees supporting each other in crossing borders and in their struggles for freedom of movement.
The number of persons supporting migrant mobility and therefor being surveilled, criminalized, sentenced, imprisoned and banned from the countries as so-called human smugglers is constantly growing all over Fortress EUrope - since ways of entering or passing through EU countries have been widely illegalized and therefor become more and more difficult without assisting structures. In Austria more than 1 000 persons have been sentenced guilty under the law of §114 FPG "Smuggling" since the year 2015 - almost all of them Non-Austrian citizens. They are conceived as criminals threatening the country´s sovereignty in managing migration.

We invite you to the Action Days starting on Tuesday, Dec. 6th with a powerful film screening in W23. There will be two workshops taking place on Thursday, Dec. 8th at the Kunsttankstelle Ottakring, as well as further presentations, an open space for your contributions and exchange and up-to-date inputs by refugees and solidary groups involved in refugee struggles all over Europe - on Saturday, Dec.10th. 
We invited activists from the #Röszke11 trials, the #Fluchthilfeprozess in Wiener Neustadt, the March for Freedom to Brussels 2014 (currently on trial in Luxembourg), the Protest March München-Nürnberg, Traiskirchen Protests (2012, 2014) and others. 

Let´s INFORM and LISTEN (to) each other and ORGANIZE resistance!
