Events & Actions

Demo Voters without Borders!

29th August 2020
Platz der Menschenrechte

There are currently about 250,000 EU-citizens residing in the city of Vienna. Yet, in elections they are not equal with Austrian citizens. For this reason, we demand the same political rights for all European citizens inside of Austria!
With this demo, we want to raise awareness towards this serious unequal treatment. Together, we stand up for the extension of electoral law to include all EU-citizens in one of the most important fundamental rights!
