Refugee’s investigation from the Camp Strike in Suhl – It is unacceptable to insult us and threaten our safety

Protest in Suhl: Refugee Rescued With His Cat Exposes “Dangerous And Unlivable” Conditions In German Camp http://thevoiceforum.org/node/4025

I fled from the Syria massacre to escape to Turkey. After I decided to move to Germany with my family. I do not have a large family, only my wife and my kitten. We got to take a very dangerous trip. We were so lucky to survive from drowning in the Aegean sea between Turkey and Greece. Then, we spent days and days walking or being transferred by buses or trains from Greece to the German borders. We passed 6 countries, one by one, Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary and Austria perceptively before reaching Germany in the end. We’ve arrived in Germany on the 15th of September 2015.
The German authorities in Hermsdorf gave us a yellow paper called “Haus Ausweis” with no date of an Interview. Then we were transferred to Suhl camp . In the camp we got shocked of the massive corruption and the bad treatment and discrimination committed by the officers in the camp.

Demo Thursday, September 24: Asylrechtsverschärfungen stoppen! لتوقيف تشديد قانون اللجوء Stop the tightening of asylum law!

( english below / العربية أدناه )

Wann: Donnerstag, 24.09.2015, 14:00 Uhr

Wo: Bundeskanzleramt, Willy-Brandt Straße 1, U Bundestag/ U/S Hauptbahnhof

Am Donnerstag, den 24.9. treffen sich beim sog. „Flüchtlingsgipfel“ die Regierungen von Bund und Ländern um die Asylgesetzgebung zu verschärfen. Unter dem Titel „Fehlanreize beseitigen!“ liegt ein Gesetzespaket vor, in dem der Aufenthalt Geflüchteter in Deutschland so unattraktiv wie möglich gestaltet werden soll. Geplant sind beispielsweise die Wiedereinführung der Residenzpflicht und Sachleistungen statt Bargeld, sowie schnellere Abschiebungen durch eine Ausweitung der Liste sogenannter sicherer Drittstaaten. Trotz humanitärer Hilfeleistungen der Bevölkerung gehören rassistische Mobilisierungen und Angriffe auf Geflüchtete weiterhin zum Alltag in Deutschland. Überdeckt durch die medial inszenierte „neue deutsche Willkommenskultur“ lautet die politische Antwort der Bundesregierung weiterhin Abschottung und Abschiebung. Deshalb werden wir unseren Protest vors Bundeskanzlerinamt tragen und deutlich sagen

Das Problem heißt Rassismus
Die Innenministerkrise lösen
Asylrechtsverschärfungen stoppen

Solidarität muss politisch werden! Solidarity must become political!

Tiergarten13Social Center 4all. This is a good name and a good project and we hope the eviction of the occupation at Englische Straße 20 today doesn’t discourage people to continue trying to find alternative spaces for the thousands of refugees arriving in Germany. It is not only a question of sleeping places, which are absolutely necessary. It is also a question of finding a places where people can self-organize spaces, where projects can be developed, where new communities can be built.

We welcome and support initiatives which take in to consideration that people need more than charity. Today we stood by the occupation for the time it lasted imagining how a women space could function there. How many refugee women we would be able to invite, what kind of activities would we be able to do together. Since the eviction of the Ohlauer School, not to have our own space has been a huge obstacle to our work. And there we were, in front of a house, whose owner doesn’t use, but refuses to let us use. This logic only makes sense in a completely bizarre system, such as capitalism, where greed substitutes reason.

Restriction instead of welcome: grand coalition decides package of measures against refugees

https://iwspace.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/proasyl.jpgTranslated by IWS from Pro Asyl: The federal government has agreed on Sunday in the coalition committee on a package of measures on asylum policy. Under the rubric “remove disincentives” several measures of deterrence policy of the nineties have been reactivated.
On Saturday, the government had allowed with a generous gesture several thousand refugees stranded at the Budapest Central Station to enter Germany, but already on Sunday the grand coalition presented a decision which contains numerous restrictive measures, among other things.

Deterrence policy as in the nineties
To avoid alleged “disincentives”, asylum seekers will in future have to stay six months instead of three in the Erstaufnahmelagern (first Reception Centers). The measure will be accompanied by the decision to impose again the Residenzpflicht to the people crammed in the Erstaufnahmelagern. The residence obligation (Residenzpflicht) that forbids them to move freely in the Federal territory. Furthermore the refugees will again receive vouchers and food parcels – according to the motto: Eat what comes from the office. In this way several instruments of deterrence and exclusion policies of the nineties, which had been liberalized step by step only in recent years, are reactivated.
The six-month placement in first Reception Centers will exacerbate the already disastrous accommodation situation. To increase the accommodation capacity two or threefold of the existing facilities will create unbearable living conditions for thousands of people, fuelling conflicts within the facilities themselves, marginalizing and stigmatizing those affected. The promise of the federal government to increase the capacity of the Reception Centers of about 45,000 to 150,000 will be impossible to achieve in the short term.

Oplatz: Open letter to district and senate

FullSizeRenderToday the Senate of Berlin and the District Council Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg ordered the removal of the info-point container at Oranienplatz. But be aware:

YOU CANNOT EVICT A MOVEMENT!

Open letter to the Berlin Senate and Friedrichshain / Kreuzberg District Council

(francais en bas – deutsch unten)
Date 13.07.2015
As you know, “The House of the 28 Doors” at Oranienplatz in Kreuzberg was attacked on the night of 30/31.03.2015, in what was probably an arson attack. The solid wooden structure burned down completely in no time at all. The small
information-centre container provided by the District suffered serious fire damage and can no longer be used. The material damage amounts to several tens of thousands of Euros; the weatherproofing materials for the “House of 28 Doors” were funded entirely through donations and all the work on it was done by volunteers.
Fortunately no-one was hurt in the fire.The perpetrator(s) have not yet been identified. Continue reading

Ferry for Freedom

0nvqhh88.png(francais en bas: )

In the face of migration policies that hamper millions of people in the world to move freely and to seek asylum in Europe without risking to die in the Mediterranean, the Tunisian association formed by the families of the Tunisian missing migrants, La Terre pour Tous, , organizes on the 6th September FERRY FOR FREEDOM, a symbolic “illegal” depart in the Tunisian waters to  claim and enact freedom of movement against the deadly effects of the Visa regime, demanding legal and free access to Europe, as claimed by the campaign “Ferry not Frontex”.

Please, support this project with your donation: https://www.lepotcommun.fr/pot/0nvqhh88

The boat will leave from Hammamet the 6th of September and we ask all the people and associations that struggle for freedom of movement and migrant rights to join and support the event.

DGB-Besetzung: erster Strafbefehl vom Gericht eingetroffen

hallo, ich habe heute einen brief vom berliner amtstgericht bezüglich der DGB-besetzung (anfang oktober 2014) durch die gruppe “refugee struggle for freedom” [1] und deren räumung durch die berliner polizei [2-3] erhalten; mir wird der vorwurf des widerstandes gegen die polizei gemacht, der wahr ist; die monitäre bestrafung dieser politischen aktion wurde auf 375€ festgesetzt. den brief des ‘strafbefehls’ findet ihr im anhang [4] dieser mail.

ich habe vor gegen diesen strafbefehl einspruch/widerspruch einzulegen, weil ich denke, dass sie für viel mehr steht als der versuch einer finanziellen zurechtweisung meiner einzelperson: ich finde, dass ich, als eine im ausland geborene/aufgewachsene/”geflüchtete” person, die den deutschen pass und die damit einhergehenden rechte mit sich herumtragen “darf”, diese gelegenheit ergreifen sollte, um ein weiteres mal öffentlich drauf hinzuweisen, wie jegliche öffentlichkeitsarbeit und der meist friedliche widerstand seitens der fliehend-illegaliserten menschen während ihres vorganges erst totgeschwiegen und/oder für illegitim oder gar sinnlos erklärt [5] und anschliessend gewaltsam geräumt [6-8] wird- um später, jenseits der öffentlichen aufmerksamkeit, mit bürokratisch-finanziellen methoden sowohl rückwirkend als auch vorbeugend mit repressionen überhäuft zu werden, damit jene für die freiheit kämpfenden menschen an der kurzen leine gehalten werden.

Statement concerning the planned tightening of the asylum law by one refugee activist

The Parliament is the symbol of representative democracy. Members of parliament/Attorneys are elected by the vote of “people”, in other words ” citizens”, and their responsibility is to defend the rights of “citizens” and to pass laws in favour of them.

 
Due to this definition, all the asylum laws, migration laws or in other word laws related to “non citizens” are passed or rejected without any representative from them in parliament; that means that by defending their rights, representatives of “citizens” violate the rights of “non citizens” .

 
The new law, which is based on eliminating “non citizens”, avoiding their presence in future and giving a dangerous and threatening image of them, in better words criminalise them, is supposed to legitimize the notion that citizens (here means Germans) are against the presence of non citizens ( concrete symbols of this opposition in German society is PEGIDA& Co., racism and exclusive behaviour towards “foreigners” or “impures”, which are rooted in history and social and cultural manner of this society ).

 
About the racist and fascistic character of PEGIDA and their exclusive logic which is the same as Hitler’s, but this time against Muslims, there is no doubt; so, as even the Chancellor of Germany, who is herself from a conservative right party, took up a position against them, the UN high commision of human rights gave a warning to Germany because of that.

 
Considering all this, what is going to be passed in the German parliament means nothing other than creating another tool to spread racism. Such a parliament which helps in this way to spread racism instead of stopping it, cannot be anything else than an organisation which systematically and legally paves the way for fascism .
If in law or in society or in politics, would you find a better name for such an approach other than Fascism??
