In recent weeks, we have experienced incredible solidarity. Our page on facebook is called 30,000 times, over 80 people had contacted us through the Web site. From the whole Republic, signed up people who wanted to go with us. For us it is a sign of how big is the solidarity among the population with refugees. The racist "enemies of the asylum" dominate the public debate may now be, but only because they are loud but not more numerous than people, jointly support the refugees.

We're going to pitch, because in the so-called no man's land between Austria and Slovenia the refugees long must endure before they can move on and there is still no consistent support for them. Today, volunteers may enter the area, previously the Slovenian authorities had not approved it. We will bring us there as one of the first groups helping the refugees on the ground.
