ANNOUNCEMENT: November 29, Volyn Activists Start on a Week-Long Car Rally Across Europe

On Saturday, November 29, at 6 am activists of Samooborona Maidanu Volyni (Volyn Maidan Self-Defense) and volunteers start on a week-long car rally «Help Ukraine – Save Europe».

This time activists except Poland and Germany added to their route three more countries: Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Recall that last rally Samoobora members visited Poland and Germany. Afterwards reported on all funds and things received from Europeans.

The aim of the event is to draw Europeans’ attention to the problems in Ukraine, find ways to help the victims and to develop cooperation with Ukrainian and international organizations in the sphere of information and charity help.

Three cars will follow a route: Lutsk – Krakow – Bratislava – Vienna – Munich – Frankfurt – Prague – Wroclaw – Lutsk. In each of these cities volunteers plan to hold a public meeting with local activists (in form of round table, press conferences, etc.) to organize raising of money at the central square to help Ukrainians, who suffered from hostilities, and make an action-performance, and to expand information booklet about the situation in Ukraine. Views and position of participants will be announced not on behalf of politicians or businessmen, but from ordinary volunteers, activists, witnesses and participants of the events.

Dates of the rally: November 29 – December 5, 2014.

The main tasks that the organizers set themselves are: to inform the European community about current life and problems of Ukrainians, the realities of military operations and situation that continues in the East; collection of charitable funds for victims of the Russian-Putin aggression.

The feasibility of this car rally is due to a tragic situation in the Eastern Ukraine which is destabilizing life throughout the country and abroad.
