Austria is currently being rebuilt. From a new government that oppresses individual groups in society to enforce its neoliberal policy of redistribution. We are all losers – especially refugees, poor or unemployed people, but also women’s projects and workers’ rights have been cut.
At the WurstvomHundBall, we are sending a signal of joie de vivre against the social indifference in the country. We are not afraid of diversity. We are not afraid of equality. And we are not afraid of the right-wing-movement itself. We want a pluralistic, modern society, we are against isolation and hatred, we stand up for inclusion. We want a policy with attitude, not a policy of exclusion, agitation and perfidy.
That is what we stand for, that is what we celebrate. And we also take decisive action: As in previous years, the net proceeds of the WurstvomHundBall will be donated to the Linz based NGO “SOS Menschenrechte” for their work in the care of refugees.
On the same evening, a demonstration will be held in Linz against the Burschenbundball which is a symbol of right-wing and sexist politics. In order to ensure that the dressing up will pay off, we walk the streets together in the BEAUTIFUL BLOCK to show our attitude before attending the WurstvomHundBall.
