    Thumbs Up Eberau: More Than 90 Percent Against Asylum Seekers Hostel

    Yesterday the referendum about the erection of the controversial asylum seekers hostel in the Burgenland village of Eberau took place. The result was crystal clear. More than 90 percent of the inhabitants are against asylum seekers in their village.

    The mayor of Eberau (Peoples party) confirmed the result yesterday at 10:30pm. 801 valid votes were counted. There were 722 votes against, and 79 votes in favour. Supporters of the project promised more jobs in police, administration and infrastructure. But the fear of the bad example of an asylum seekers hostel in the Lower Austrian town Traiskirchen predominated.

    Now the plans for the asylum seekers hostel in Eberau are history. The Interior minister of the Peoples party promised to accept the democratic decision.

    The biggest refusal of the project was evident in the district of its proposed location: 96,15 percent of votes against. Such clear result was quite a shock for Eberaus mayor. He said that it was a big mistake to plan something like that, and begged his citizens pardon. But he also told that demission is no option for him.

    The chairman of the citizens’ initiative against the asylum seekers hostel triumphed and declared that the mayor is mature for demission. “We are very satisfied”, he told to medias. If he wants to be the next mayor? “I am not sure”, he answered.

    It is unique that citizens are allowed to vote whether they want such a centre, usually they are just built. I can't remember the citizens of Traiskirchen being asked whether they wanted an asylum centre.

    The tragic thing will be though, that this will only defeat the project for Eberau. Plans are underway to build this third asylum centre somewhere else, or perhaps split it up with a smaller centre opened in each state.

    And all that mayhem when the supposed People's Party motions to build a third asylum centre that even the Greens (!) say we have no need for.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    The "People's" Party are a huge disappointment. They are supposed to represent conservatism, yet they support all these insanities to sell out the country. On the other hand, it's good to see villagers spoke out against the hostel.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.
