#Refugeecamp Vienna demonstration 16-02-2013
« on: February 17, 2013, 11:38:37 AM »

On Saturday (16.02.2013) afternoon a big demonstration took place in Vienna in solidarity with the refugees who are protesting in the Votivkirche [votive church in Vienna].
About 2000 participants marched to the Votivkirche, starting at the rail station [Westbahnhof] and walking through the city centre. Short rallies took place in front of the Interior Ministry, the Parliament and the Regional Court [Landesgericht].

The demonstration came to an end around 19 o'clock, with Eva Jantschitsch (aka Gustav), MC Kid Pex, MC Def II and the winner of the protest song contest, Benedikta Manzano, making live appearances.
