The first issue of the LobauBleibt Zeitung had a circulation of 100,000 copies and was distributed by 400 volunteer activists throughout Vienna. The printing was financed by donations.
Augustin was accompanied by a Lobau bleibt newspaper, which is also distributed to tens of thousands of people and households in Vienna. The city spends € 600,000 on propaganda? We have people power for this and organize ourselves.
If you would like to learn more about the movement, the motivations and the people behind it, check out an Augustin from Wednesday (general recommendation!) or download the newspaper here as a PDF.
You want to help distribute?
You can help us and get involved in putting the newspaper in the mailboxes in all districts, distributing it in front of schools, in front of subway stations, etc.
We want to concentrate from 27.1. to 2.2. Vienna flooding. How you can get involved can be found here.
I'm alone, how can I join somewhere?
Quite simply: in every district there are distribution campaigns for postal boxes. Just have a look at the events on Facebook, come to the agreed meeting point. Newspapers and keys to get into the houses are available. We form teams of 3 and 4. A distribution round takes between 1 and 2 hours.
I'm part of a group, we would do an action ourselves, how do we get to the things?
Also simple: The newspapers are in the 1. District stored and can be picked up in 1000 piece units. If you want to distribute yourself at schools, subway stations, etc., just tell us when and where so that it is not done twice. If you want others to join you, write to us, then we will create a Facebook event for you.
Why between 27.1. and 2.2.?
On 26.1. it is delivered and we want as many people as possible to be informed within a week.
On 27 April, the second edition will be published, which is to be even larger in order to counter the disinformation campaign on the city motorway through the city of Vienna. In 2021 alone, the city government spent 870,000 euros on advertisements for the city highway.
We will throw the newspaper back into mailboxes, distribute it in front of schools and subway stations.
The circulation of 50,000 pieces is already secured, with each donation we can increase the circulation.
➡️ With 35 Euro you can increase the pressure on the city of Vienna by 1000 pieces and we can fly the whole Ottakringerstraße.
➡️ With 420 euros you can increase the pressure on the city of Vienna by 12,000 pieces and we can guide the whole Josefstadt.
Never before has it been so easy to make a valuable contribution to holding up a mirror to the "climate model city of Vienna" and advocating an ecological mobility transition.
Please help to increase the PRESSURE – in the truest sense of the word 🙌 Our goal is a circulation of 200,000 copies., The distributors are ready and looking forward to grazing even more streets this time.
