Humanity and Solidarity

People all over the world have expressed their solidarity with the people of Ukraine, who are now the victim of Russia’s cruel war.

The people of Ukraine are being murdered in their home. Russia is attacking the very identity of Ukrainians and oppresses their voices.

We, the people of Ukraine, want to share our voices with the people in Austria and thank them for their support.

May 8 – Day of Liberation: Remembrance in place of war and parades

We come together on May 8 on Schwarzenbergplatz in 1030 Vienna to share who we are and to spend the Day of Liberation remembering in place of war and parades.

The people of Ukraine and the people of Austria – including speakers, musicians, artists, researchers, and representatives of help organizations – will come to Schwarzenbergplatz starting at 1pm to express the hopes and dreams of Ukraine with their many voices.

Help helps

We will think of all the people of Ukraine whose hopes and dreams have been been prevented by Russia’s war against them. The event is, of course, free; we ask you to donate to the Austrian NGO Zentrum für Ukrainische Initiativen to support humanitarian help projects in Ukraine.

Please stand with the people of Ukraine on May 8.

The right of one’s own history and the right of one’s own voice are not alienable. Let our voices sound together in remembrance on May 8.

We ask you sincerely, to alert your networks to this event. Every form of your support helps us, the people of Ukraine. Thank you!
