deutsch unten – francais en bas – TürkSrpskohrvatski  – فارسی– اردو – العربية

Gegen Asylrechtsverschärfungen!

No to even tighter laws! Yes to solidarity! Photo: Yusuf Beyazit

16th February 2016 at 6pm
start at LaGeSo (Turmstraße 21, 10559 Berlin) to Bundestag

In the next days the parliament will vote on a new law. This racist law is directed aggressively against refugees.

They Asylum Package II includes:
• “Special reception camps” for people from “secure” countries of origin, or people who are accused to have destroyed their documents, will be opened. In these camps the asylum procedure should be completed in three weeks with the aim to deport people faster.
• People coming from a country where there is war and who have the status of ‘Subsidiary Protection’ shall not be allowed to bring their family from abroad during the first two years of their stay.
• Deportations of people who are sick will be easier. Illnesses that people had already before they came to Germany will not be an obstacle to deportations anymore.
• Algeria, Tunesia and Marokko shall be declared as secure countries of origin in order to deport people more easily.

This Asylum Package II is an act of isolationist politics and division!
Let us not be played off against each other! Let’s get on the streets and be loud against these racist laws, against the violence of camp security and against the Lagers!

For the right to stay and the right to family for everyone!

Solidarity is: resistance!!

TSCHAD – WORKSHOP about the current situation in the country by activists

14.02.2016 | 15 Uhr (3 pm) | Kreuzberg Museum FHXB
Adalbertstr.95a, Kottbusser Tor U8-U1

from the group Chad Youth in Germany

*English – We will explain the system in Chad*
In our workshop we will speak first about the 103 children from Chad, who got kidnapped in October 2007 by the french aid-agency „L’Arche de Zoé“ pretending that they are orphans. After that three workers from this aid-agency got imprisoned. When in 2008 rebels wanted to overthrow the regime of Idriss Deby and take over the power in the capital N´Djamena, France and the regime made a deal: If the regime is letting the workers from „L’Arche de Zoé“ out of prison, France will fight the rebels with his army.   Continue reading

Story by Dawid Krawczyk of Krytyka Polityczna on the Refugee Movement Berlin: “Not everything works out as planned”

On Ohlauer Strasse in Berlin there is a building that once housed a co-educational high school. Later it stood empty. Now refugees live in it. Behind a gate with two guards, under constant surveillance.

‘No, no! You can’t take photos here. Outside the bars you can,’ I hear a few seconds after I decide to enter the school area. Alongside the guards I also see a smiling man coming towards me. He wears a winter cap and a light down jacket. His name is Alnour Ahmad-Hassan, a resident of the school. He calms the guard down.

‘Okay, let’s get out of here. At the corner there is a café. We can sit there and talk in peace,’ Alnour suggests.

‘So this is how it is here now?’ I ask, surprised.

‘Yes, more or less. You see, they are isolating us here completely.’

‘What would you like to know?’ asks Alnour several minutes later, sipping his black coffee.

‘Everything, basically.’

‘If everything, it would be good to start at the beginning.’

Klick HERE for the Press Release which was published few days ago.

Watch the video: https://vimeo.com/154353396

International Women Space got to know Viviana when she was still living the emergency shelter (Lager) at the Wiesenstraße, in Wedding, Berlin. On te 29th of January we went to the Notunterkunft to have a coffee with Viviana and see how she was. The moment we met, Viviana was already showing signs of stress. No wonder, she was one of the few women living in a shared space of a former Basketball Hall with 200 men having only her bed as a place of her own.

La UE pacta con Turquía para la guerra, el saqueo y control a costa de los refugiados

Turgay Ulu

Turgay Ulu

Octubre 2015: Pocos días antes de las críticas elecciones en Turquía, la canciller Angela Merkel se encontraba con el Primer Ministro turco Erdoğan. En vistas del conflicto intraestatal que afecta a la región política, el momento del encuentro ha sido un descarado apoyo para el gobierno de Erdoğan de cara a las elecciones venideras. Durante este tiempo se ha cerrado un acuerdo entre la UE y Turquía, en el cual se trata principalmente de prohibir la entrada a la UE a través de Turquía a los refugiados, así como acordar las deportaciones de éstos desde Turquía. A cambio de ello, por un lado se han acelerado las negociaciones en relación a la entrada de Turquía en la UE y por otro, se ha aceptado la circulación sin visa de los ciudadanos*as turcos dentro de las fronteras de la UE. Además, la petición de una ayuda económica en valor de 3 mil millones de euros por parte de Turquía ha sido aceptada, a cambio de denegar la entrada de los refugiados a la UE. Continue reading
