May 21st, 2008. That was the day of a huge police operation in Austria against animal rights activists. Their offence: campaigning against fur and especially against the fashion company "Kleider Bauer".
The following months and years can only be described by "kafkaesque". A huge process focusing on an ominious criminal organization. So the bottom line of all this was not only a trial against animal rights activism, but about any activism in NGOs.
The documentary WIR SIND ALLE §278A portrays five political activists who are confronted with the attempt at intimidation by a repressive state: Christof, Jan, Kevin, Leo und Sabine. Are business interests more important than freedom of speech?facebook
