Important information when crossing into Austria and anti-pushback protests in Šid (Serbia)

An Austrian police officer officially stated on the TV news which questions are being asked at the Austrian registration center in Spielfeld.

1. What is your final destination?

2. What are you planning to do there?

Legal experts advice people not to go into details regarding their future plans but instead insist and limit their answer to the fact that they are planning to ask for asylum.

After Austria decided to tighten its policies, which are more strict to let people, who will ask asylum in Germany or Austria,  to enter its borders, domino effect is occuring on the Balkan route, making some countries to enforce pushbacks.

Information from 16.2.2016 from the group Are you syrious?

#‎PUSHBACKS‬: This is a special note on push-backs that are being conducted as a joint effort of Austrian, Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian and Macedonian authorities. Reasons for pushbacks are many, non Syrian, Iraqi or Afghan identification documents, failure to pass language test if one is being suspected not to be SIA national, wrong answer to final destination (must be Germany or Austria), wrong answer to reasons for migration (must be war), many arbitrary decisions, such as suspicion of translator not being politically neutral, a refugee not being recruited in the military, not knowing the date of some religious holiday, discrimination based on national, racial, linguistic characteristics of a person. There pushbacks are occurring without regards to official procedure and international protection rights. The route of a return is: Šentilj – Dobova – Zagreb (Porin/Ježevo) – Slavonski Brod – Šid and/or Belgrade (Krnjača) – Macedonia – Greece. A refugee can attempt to re-enter the route. Indeed, many refugees are re-doing the route a few times before they are finally granted an asylum, which only tells us they had the right all the way, but the European regime denied them their right.

Open borders for everyone!

Important information when crossing into Slovenia!

Since Austria is tightening its asylum and imigration policies it is more strict to exclude those who are deemed to be ‘economic migrants’. A domino effect will probably follow up to Greek-Macedonian border. Up until now it was more or less enough for some nationalites to say they are going to Germany, but the policies are gettin stricter, where this reason is not enough anymore.

The following information crucial – currently for the Croatian-Slovenian border:

Only if you choose: ‘1. war’  you are allowed travel on to Germany or Austria. Otherwise they will send you back to Croatia.

فقط عند اختيارك “١. الحرب” يسمح لك بالسفر إلى ألمانيا أو النمسا وإلا ستتم إعادتك إلى كرواتيا

Full information by the Welcome2Europe website:

When you enter Slovenia there is a questionary asking: „Why do you want to go to Germany?” There are four answers that you can choose:

  1. War
  2. Study
  3. Religious reasons
  4. Family reunification
  5. Job

Only if you choose: ‘1. war’  you are allowed travel on to Germany or Austria. Otherwise they will send you back to Croatia.

Possibly, they also ask you this question in an oral interview. It is no longer enough that you say you want to ask for asylum in Germany or Austria, you also have to say the reason is war.

It is possible that this new question will be asked on earlier border crossings, such as when entering Croatia, Serbia or Macedonia.

 

عندما تصل سلوفينيا هناك استطلاع يسأل : “لماذا تريد الذهاب إلى ألمانيا؟” هناك 4 إجابات بإمكانك اختيارها
١. الحرب
٢. الدراسة
٣. أسباب دينية
٤. لم شمل العائلة
٥. العمل

فقط عند اختيارك “١. الحرب” يسمح لك بالسفر إلى ألمانيا أو النمسا وإلا ستتم إعادتك إلى كرواتيا

ومن الممكن أن يسألوك ذاك السؤال في مقابلة شفوية. لم يعد كافيا” القول أنك تريد طلب اللجوء في ألمانيا أو النمسا، عليك أن تضيف أيضا أن السبب هو الحرب

من المحتمل أن يتم سؤال هذا السؤال الجديد على الحدود الكرواتية، الصربية أو حتى المقدونية
