INHAFTIERUNG, EINREISESPERREN, ARBEITSVERBOT!

What happened?

On 20 Feb. 2015, employees of the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg came to the school with police to serve an eviction order (dated 13 Feb. 2015). The residents were ordered to pack their things and get out until 19 March 2015. The order was signed by Jana Borkamp (Green Party), district chief for finance, culture and adult education.

The reason given was that the District and the church organization Diakonie want to renovate the school to convert it into a refugee center. Diakonie wants to lease and manage the whole property and claims the building would have to be empty.

New eviction threat for Gerhart Hauptmann School by March, 19th

On 20.2.15, employees of the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg came to the school with police to serve an eviction order. The residents were ordered to pack their things and get out until 19 March 2015.

The reason given was that the District and the church organization Diakonie want to renovate the school to convert it into a refugee center. Diakonie wants to lease and manage the whole property and claims the building would have to be empty.

Furthermore, the letter refers to the roof protest of summer 2014 and the “agreement” between the school residents and the district. It claims the agreement was made under pressure to prevent “escalation” and would give the people from the school no legal right to stay in the school. Claiming that the district budget is frozen since September 2014, the “bad financial situation” caused by security guards, energy costs and maintenance, not to mention the ten days police blockade (which costed 5 million Euros) serves as a justification for the urgence of an immediate reaction.

The district’s new eviction threat also contradicts all solutions that would allow the people to stay in the school and open an autonomous International Refugee Center. It provokes an escalation for no reason.

The district justifies the eviction threat with the fact that the church organization Diakonie wants to renovate the school in order to convert it into a refugee center. Diakonie wants to lease and manage the whole property and claims the building would have to be empty for the constructions. Let us remember how Diakonie acted during the “negotiations” about the eviction of the protest camp at Oranienplatz. The so-called “Kolat Agreement” of April 2014 which was supported by Diakonie was a fake promise. The refugees who left Oranienplatz were kicked out of Diakonie residences after less than half a year.

The letter (dated February, 13) threatens with forced eviction in case they do not comply with the order. It is signed by Jana Borkamp (Green Party), district chief for finance, culture, and adult education. The residents with a so-called “House ID” are supposed to get “vouchers for hostel beds over a period of 4 weeks.” Within this time, the authorities are “encouraged” to find long-term houses or give “specialized advice.”

Besides the fact that the letter is written in a bureaucratic, cynical, and ridiculous language, it only picks out selected arguments and misses the following crucial points entirely: in November the local court of Tempelhof-Kreuzberg gave right to the injunctions of two refugees, residents of the school, to stay in it by referring to the agreement of July. What we see here, is clearly the same tactics and political logic in conflict situations with political opponents by the district as applied by the senate in the aftermath of the Kolat agreement. The Green Party as well as the Christian Democrats use arbitrary argumentation and turn the accusation upside down – a typical rhetoric and racist practise. What is more, the district stands in line with other state instiutions arguing with a bad budgetary situation when it comes to the basic needs of under- and non-privileged people or collectives.

We will not allow them to divide us and to turn against each other! We have to stand together to be able to fight this political struggle!

There is the possibility to object this eviction order. Formally, it will not have a suspensive effect. So let´s get in on RIGHT NOW and support the people from the school!

protestcamp on Theaterplatz, Dresden: Declaration of the non-citizens of the „refugee struggle Dresden“

Why we put up the protest camp at Theaterplatz, Dresden:

Dresden’s protest camp is sure that Saxony’s government does not want to take any responsibility towards the non-citizens’ situation. That is why we decided to bring our protest to the streets and demonstrate here.

We believe that Saxony’s government had enough information and time to analyse the non-citizens problems and choose the best reaction.

We, non-citizens are convinced to object this situation and want the government to accept our demands for equal rights with citizens

These are some of the problems that made us come to the streets:

deportations
no equal rights to choose a job
no right to choose our own residence place and obligation to live in the lagers in cities or villages we did not choose
no right to an equal health insurance and „Krankenscheine“
no language courses for everyone from the beginning and no opportunity for further education
intransparent rules for the procedures of the BAMF (interviews, court times, negative answers)

Summary: no possibility to take decisions for our lives as human beings

Erklärung der Non-Citizens des „Refugee Struggle Dresden“ zum Protestcamp auf dem Theaterplatz:

Warum wir das Protestcamp auf dem Theaterplatz errichtet haben:

Das Protestcamp „Refugee Struggle Dresden“ ist sich sicher, dass die Sächsische Regierung keine Verantwortung für die Situation der Non-Citizens (Geflüchtete ohne Bürgerrechte) übernimmt. Deshalb haben wir Protestierenden uns entschlossen, ihren Protest auf die Straße zu tragen und hier zu demonstrieren.

Die Protestierenden sind sich sicher, dass die Sächsische Regierung genug Informationen und Zeit hatte, um die Situation der Non-Citizens zu analysieren und die richtigen Schritte einzuleiten.

Wir, die Non-Citizens sind überzeugt, uns dieser Situation zu widersetzen und wollen, dass die Regierung unsere Forderungen umsetzt. Dies sind einige Punkte, aufgrund derer wir auf die Straße gehen:

Abschiebungen
kein gleiches Recht zu arbeiten
kein Recht den eigenen Wohnort auszuwählen und Zwang, in den Lagern (Heimen) in Städten und Dörfern zu leben, die wir nicht gewählt haben
Keine gleiche Gesundheitsversorgung und die Aufrechterhaltung des Krankenscheinsystems
Keine Sprachkurse für alle von Beginn an und kein Recht auf Bildung an Schulen und Universitäten
Intransparente Regelungen für die Prozesse des BAMF in Bezug auf Anhörungen und Verfahrensfristen

Zusammenfassend: Als Menschen dürfen wir keine Entscheidungen für unser eigenes Leben treffen.
