Walk the Balkans

Join a Walking Team and express your regret by joining the people who are suffering at our borders.
Whenever possible, we walk with the refugees who cross the Balkans.

It might involve sleeping outside, eating at campfires and not knowing what the next day will bring.
A way to counter dehumanising politics by being just humans together.
If we can’t change politics, we still can connect person to person. This matters.

“I feel ashamed that with all our activism, lobbyism, politics and protest, we haven’t been able to make Europe keep up the human values.I feel it when I talk to this Egyptian kid at a campfire in an empty factory, or the Afghan boy in a terrible refugee camp, I feel shame ‘cause we Europeans have failed miserably. Towards them.”Rikko from The Netherlands


The Walk of Shame is initiated by European activists connected to
We Gaan Ze Halen and Civil March for Aleppo.
They have organised several international campaigns and protest the last years and decided to join forces,
together with newcomers who have been through it all.

If you want to get in touch with us, write to info@walk-of-shame.eu.
