Statement of Solidarity
Protest against the Parliamentary Inquiry launched by the Right-Wing Opposition Party in Austria against the RCIT Section and the Egypt Migrant Community!
Stop Prosecution for Solidarity with Palestine and for Opposition against the Military Dictatorship in Egypt!
We, the undersigned, are aware that a group of deputies of the Freiheitliche Partei – an extreme right-wing racist party led by HC Strache – has initiated a parliamentary inquiry against the Austrian section of the RCIT as well as against the leading organization of the Egypt migrants in that country. Referring to slogans in solidarity for Palestine as well for the resistance of the Egypt people against the military dictatorship which were chanted by their contingent at an anti-racist demonstration in Vienna at 26 November 2016, the parliamentary deputies call the Federal Ministry of the Interior to officially investigate these two organizations with the view to take legal steps against them. Irrespective of our concrete perspectives about the future of the Palestinian as well as the Egyptian people’s struggle for liberation, we protest against this parliamentary inquiry and we also oppose any state investigation and prosecution against these organizations.
Please send this short letter by email to the Austrian Parliament (email@example.com) as well as to the Austrian ministry of interior (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please forward this email also to us: email@example.com
