South Tyrol: Democracy activists reach high mountain tops
Each year the Stelvio Pass in South Tyrol is blocked for motor traffic. Instead, the highest mountain pass in the Eastern Alps paves way to cyclists only. This year, on 31 August 2013, five activists of the “Initiative for More Democracy” climbed 2 760 metres of altitude by bike, carrying the banner “cycling for more democracy”. Their goal was to make aware participants and passers-by of the ongoing signature collection in South Tyrol.
