Convoy Budapest Vienna - Rail replacement Operation for Refugees

what if justice demands open borders

The Hungarian government denied refugees access to safe travels by train, even if they have had valid tickets. The Austrian government and the EU stand by idly and watch as people on the streets of Budapest -without any appropriate supplies- have to endure appaling conditions. That's why we intervene and start a convoy of buses and cars to bring the refugees to safety. T

he first convoy will start on Sunday at 11:00am from the car park of Praterstadium in Vienna in order to bring as many refugees as possible from Budapest to Vienna, to provide them with food and basic medical supplies and to enable them to continue their journey to their destination.


The call is adressed to people and initiatives that have been willing to do the same during the past weeks. Also the call aimes to reach NGO's, bus operators, taxi companies, and trade unions, etc. to support the convoy and go along with it to provide a safe journey to Vienna.


We call upon the Austrian government to obtain the re-opening of the railway station in Hungary, so that refugees can travel safely with the solidarian Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB). Our relief operation is the only effective way to prevent more deaths in trucks at the moment. We urgently ask the political leaders not to impede the process of this action which seems to be the only right thing to do at the moment: to spare no effort to save lives!
