Statement from the refugee camp in Vienna – which was evicted violently

The protest camp
On the 24th of November 2012,
hundreds of migrants seeking asylum in Austria marched from the isolated and overcrowded government camp storing them to set up a protest camp in Vienna along with Austrian supporters. Their demands are: the right to work and stay in this prosperous European country, as qualified legal support and translation. Building their own and self-sustained protest camp, the protesters
have created a vibrant space of participatory democracy, solidarity and mutual aid; an inspiring constituent process. They have shown what a truly open and cosmopolitan Europe might look like.
