توجه! توجه! افغانستان امن نیست!
به تاریخ 2017/05/31 برای ششمین بار اخراج گروهی پناهجویان افغان از کشور آلمان به افغانستان صورت میگیرد. جمهوری فدرال آلمان بار دیگر ثابت ساخت که هیچ چیز از گذشته خود نیاموخته و هنوز هم پناهجویان را به یک کشور جنگ زده و ویران دوباره برگشت مدهند. افغانستان برای افراد اخراج شده بسیار خطرناک به نظر میرسد.
مرگ یک تبعه آلمانی به تاریخ .2017 21.5 درشهر کابل که مصروف همکاری های توسعه یی بود، خود ثابت مینماید که افغانستان امن نیست، این مورد باعث شد که توجه زیادی از رسانه ها را به خود جلب نماید، و وضعیت نامشخص و تهدید کننده زندگی را در داخل افغانستان به سختی مورد بحث قرار دهد. تا هنوز هیچ نتیجه سیاسی درپی نداشته.
شاید این خود یک غمل سیاسی باشد، تا توسط چنین عمل مخالفت های شان را درمقابل استادگی ها نشان دهند.
توجه! توجه! توجه!

ACHTUNG!! ACHTUNG!! Afghanistan ist nicht sicher!

Am 31.5.2017 findet die 6. Charterflugabschiebung nach Afghanistan aus Frankfurt statt. Die Bundesrepublik Deutschland beweist erneut, dass sie nichts aus ihrer Vergangenheit gelernt hat und schiebt Menschen in ein Land ab, das von Krieg und Zerstörung gezeichnet ist. Die Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan sind für die Rückkehrer*innen lebensgefährlich. Der Tod der deutschen in der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit tätigen Mitarbeiterin, die am 21.5. bei einem Angriff in Kabul getötet wurde, beweist dies. Während dieser Fall medial für große Aufmerksamkeit sorgte, wird die unsichere und lebensbedrohliche Lage für Afghan*innen kaum thematisiert. Es werden keine politischen Schlüsse gezogen!

Es muss Teil einer politischen Praxis sein, diese Abschiebung weiterhin sichtbar zu machen und sich entschieden dagegen zu stellen.

Aus diesem Grund wird am Mittwoch, den 31.05.17 um 18:30Uhr eine Demonstration am Frankfurter Flughafen Terminal 1 Abflug B stattfinden, um gegen Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan und im Allgemeinen gegen alle Abschiebungen lautstark zu protestieren.

Wir hoffen auf euer zahlreiches Erscheinen und lauten Protest!!!

Zugtreffpunkt Darmstadt: 17:15Uhr am Hauptbahnhof – Abfahrt um 17:30Uhr mit dem RB

Treffpunkt Frankfurt – 18Uhr Hauptbahnhof

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Afghanistan is not safe!

On the 31. of May 2017 the 6. deportation charter flight will take place from Frankfurt. The federal republic of Germany is proving again, that she has learned nothing from her past and is deporting humans to a country, that is marked by war and destruction. The deportations are perilous for the deportees. The death of the employee of a NGO on the 21. of May through an attack in Kabul, proves this. This case was covered with close attention by the media, while the unsafe and perilous situation for the Afghans is hardly ever mentioned. No political conclusions are made!

It has to be part of the political action to draw attention to these deportations and to take a stand against them.

For this reason there will be a demonstration at the airport in Frankfurt at 6:30pm on the 31. of May 2017 to protest against deportations to Afghanistan and in general against all deportations.

We hope that you will come in big numbers and make your protest vocal!

Train meeting point for Darmstadt: 5:15pm at the central train station – departure RB 5:30pm

Meeting point Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof 6pm

“This is the voice of freedom” – Interview with Zaki

Interview with a deported person to Afghanistan

In February 2016, refugees protested against their planned deportations with a hunger strike in the deportation prison in Mühldorf am Inn (Bavaria). After the fire in one of the cells, the prison authorities answered with banning visits and mails. The following day, one of the inmates was deported to Afghanistan despite to the injuries caused by the fire. The foreign office (Ausländerbehörde) in Munich was blocked in solidarity with the protest for several hours. After three weeks of hunger strike, Zaki K. was deported as the last of the strikers against his will with Air India from Frankfurt to Kabul. Because of the solidarity action three activists were on trial on the 14th of March 2017. Read here their process declaration (German). The interview with Zaki was conducted before the trial.

Hello Zaki. Last year you were involved in the hungerstrike in the deportation prison in Mühldorf and got deported after a long struggle. This week is the court hearing because of a solidarity action, which took place during your protest. We thought it is a good possibility to speak with you again.

Yes, I have a lot to say, but who will listen to these things? When I was in Germany, I saw the truth. What the police did with me, they cannot deny that, because I have proofs. How the German police, the German lawmakers, how they lie to people, how they cheat the asylum people. Inacceptable things happened in 2016. With a white paper in the pocket they deported me.

What do you mean with white paper? Do you mean they deported you without any legal ground?

Yes, a fake paper. When I was on hungerstrike, they deported me. The time they came, my lawyer was not working, lunchtime. Six guards came, pushed me by force out, took me out. They just showed me a pocket and said: „All your papers came from the court in Nürnberg. Just take your things and when you are in the car, you can read the papers.“ I took my things, went in the police car, we started driving to Frankfurt and I asked again to see the papers from court. They said „Later, at the airport“. At the airport I told them again to give me my papers. They refused again. Later when I was able to open that pocket I saw that there were some papers of my marriage legalisation, but mainly white papers! I was shocked. What? That policeman? That Landratsamt? They are cheating me so bad? They must be ashame of what they did with me. I still have this pocket with me. One day I will write a story about it. About how Germany is talking so much, and cheating me.

The deportation was around 10 months ago. Can you tell us what has happened in the last months and in your first days and weeks back in Afghanistan?

The Landratsamt in Tirschenreuth decided to deport me without any reason. My papers for the marriage were at the Standesamt and two years they told me „tomorrow, tomorrow“. And then in the end, they told me that because I am a Muslim I am not allowed to marry. They requested more and more papers. I gave them all the papers, all the documents. There was one person working there, saying „I will be the person, who is sending you back to Afghanistan.“ Even two years before, he told me „I will send you back.“. In the end they took my passport, called the police and  they took me. Before in the court they were saying, „You just want to marry to stay in Europe.“ Hey, about what they were talking? I am having children in Norway! I was twenty years in Europe!

They deported me from Frankfurt to Afghanistan. The German police was working at the airport in Kabul – they sold me to Afghanistan. When I got out of the airport I had nobody to go to, no family. A country full of war. I was going to hell. I wasn‘t able to find somebody. I found a place to stay for a couple of days in Kabul. I was so scared and also ill from the hugerstrike. I had so many problems in my body, with my knee, with my back, allergies.

Soon in Afghanistan I was kidnapped! They asked for money, but I had nothing. It happened even close to a military base, where they have so many cameras. Then there was a big suicide bombing, when they attacked a military base in Kabul. I was injured from that. I was in hospital because of my leg. Then I applied for a visa in Turkey and went there, after five, four months. It was too difficult to live in this place. I love my country, but there is war.

I experienced this three times! When they deported me for the first time from Europe to Afghanistan, I was kidnapped. My father was the vice president of Afghanistan in the past. In 2011 I opened a small shop and again I was kidnapped. I payed 24.000 Dollar to be released. In Afghanistan so many people don‘t have work so they work with so many diffrent groups. They can threaten you to take your money and empty your pockets. This is not a joke, not a story to tell. When I was deported to Afghanistan, the Taliban told me: „You come from Europe, so you have money.“ But I swear, I had nothing. They just pushed me on the street and said, „You work for Germany“. So I told myself that I cannot live in this country anymore, I had to leave again. Three times they did this with me, they came in the night, took me and took everything from me.

And if Germany is sending me back to Afghanistan, I think, they support them. Because they know the situation of our country. European gouvernments pay money to Afghanistan. For this money, they have to take back their citizens. But we need your help, not your money. We don‘t tell you to come to Afghanistan and help us. We don‘t need your police to teach us! You can help us to make streets, to make schools.  Help us to fight against those, who are destroying our country. This is not a war because of religion, but it is a war because of petrol, a war of oil, a war of soil. We grew up with the war. It makes up everything of our history. Everywhere terrorist attacks. Christians, Muslims, Jews are killed in the name of Islam.

Now I am in Turkey, I work, I have everything, I live in a beautiful city. In Germany I was not allowed to go to school, they put me at some remote place and I was not allowed to move 20 km outside. I was staying in Tirschenreuth, my lawyer in Munich. That‘s 4,5 hours travelling. How can I reach him? When I got back, there was no bus anymore.

In the middle of December there was a mass deportation to Afghanistan and there are negotiations about a new contract between Afghanistan and Germany so that it will be more easy to deport people. What do you think about that?

Asylum seekers never got any chance. Every month you have to decide, whether you spend your money for a lawyer or for food. And then often, as it was in my case, the lawyer is not working for you. I called him thousand times, and he was not answering. Because he knows that I am an asylum seeker and that he can do that with me.

The court, the Landratsamt, they just didn‘t wanted to listen, what kind of problem people have in Afghanistan. They think they are better than you. How can we believe that Germany has good laws? It‘s true, Germany has good laws, a good economy, but only for themselves. If Germany is sending so many people back, everybody will say about Germany that it is so bad. The other part of Afghanistan, the Taliban, they will enjoy that. They say, „See, this is Europe.“ And young boys get brainwashed, join the war against the NATO and become suicide bombers. Why do they send so many Afghan people back? The young generation will not forget this. I don‘t think it is good if people hate Germany. Why has this terrorist attack happened before Christmas in Berlin? Why? It is the mistakes of the lawmakers!

Germany makes many enemies for themselves. People just want to start a new life.  They don‘t think, that they will take social money, when they go to Germany. This is what people in Germany think: „We give them everything from our pockets.“ How you give us something from your pockets? If in 2016 Germany took half a million asylum seekers – in Turkey there were ten millions asylum seekers!

We are human beings. The fingers of my hand are the same size as yours. We can learn from each other something. If you have water, share a little of your water. If you have knowledge, teach people, let them learn. I lived in so many countries. Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Greece, Germany, Sweden, Norway and I learned from everywhere something.

Looking back on the hungerstrike in Mühldorf last year – how do you see the protest now?

The authorities in Mühldorf, they didn‘t want to help. The boss of the Muehldorf prison, he was living in Afghanistan two years. Many of them had been in Afghanistan. He told me: „Your country is very good, why you don‘t go back?“ I said: „You have been there only to do your job. You have been in secure military bases, not outside. If you went outside, you went with your soldiers.“ The police of Mühldorf, they are sick people. They have wrong information about asylum people. And in the Bundesamt, there are also working sick people.

In Mühldorf, we were treated you so bad. I saw people in prison who had serious problems with their teeth. They asked for a doctor, but the guards denied to call one. They said, he has to wait untill Monday. They just give you food, nobody wants to eat. If you complain, they say: „you are not coming to a hotel, this is not your father‘s house. Why are you coming here?“ I was thinking about what has happened with the Jews in the past in Germany and thought „Hey, these prison guards are really Nazis.“ I had another picture of Germany before. I thought they respect people. I was ready to give my heart to the people of Germany. I never wanted to committ any crime.

Are you still in contact to other hungerstrikers?

Yes, to Ahmad, who wanted to kill himself. When I was in Mühldorf, so many people wanted to kill themselves, to hang themselves. They didn‘t want to let news come out of Mühldorf. Another  person, after 30 years, they wanted to send him back. He is from Serbia. He has children here. 30 years he was here! He cut his arms. One day I woke up, I saw the blood on the ground. I turned the light on and saw that he is bleeding. I asked him later: „Brother, why do you want to die?“ He said, „If they send me back, after 30 years here, it is a new country for me.“ How can you give a person so much pain? Is this a dangerous person for Germany?

This is the voice of freedom. I don‘t want to be scared of any politician, of nobody. This is for all people around the world, Jews, Muslims, all people, who love freedom. Freedom is not just for Afghanistan, or Norway, of Germany. Freedom must be for all. All around the world. Not just for one country. I respect myself, so I respect everybody. But these people, maybe they don‘t respect themselves, because they are cheaters, liars, only talking about freedom. What does  freedom mean? Democracy? What is happening in the name of democracy? They are just using this name.

People have a lot of pain, they lost theirs lives. They don‘t want to remember, to see the cities and remember the friends they lost. When I see the schools in Afghanistan, I have to remember the bombings, how my school friend died. So dirty things happen. But they don‘t let us explain our lives. If you want to sell us to a country, sell. If you want to buy a country like this, do it, but 130 years before, the United Kingdom came to Afghanistan. They take everything, we beat them, they went to Pakistan. Who came next? So many others. Then Russia came, then NATO. We, the people, have nothing to do with politics. Me, personally, I don‘t want to listen to the stupid politicians. It is not, that if they offer you money, you can just go back. I want to live free. I want to live with every religion. I am a Jew, I am a Muslim, I am a Christian, I am a Buddhist. I don‘t want anybody to be scared to say what their religion is. The religion is not doing something bad, the people are making something bad, in the name of religion.

How is the situation now of your wife and children in Norway?

Last week my son had birthday and everytime he is telling me: „Father I love you so much, I miss you so much, I don‘t know why you don‘t come. When will you come?“ He is ten years now, when he was six, he told me the same things. The court didn‘t listen to us. How can I trust a court anymore? How can I trust the police anymore? We want to be together, we are a family.

Are you still trying to legalise your marriage?

Yes, but the problem is that my wife is working 30 percent, because she cannot work more. My children are born in Norway. According to the law of human rights, you are not allowed to seperate families. But I know, that we don‘t get our rights because we are Muslims. And the European people don‘t like Muslims, they hate them. It‘s not like before, a free Europe. This is the new Europe. They put in the minds of the young people: „Muslims are bad.“

What is your hope for the future?

If I look at the situation, I have zero hope for the future. Europe is talking nice about human rights. Everytime they are talking about human rights in other countries, but they themselves are the bosses of cheaters. You can make a hungerstrike thousand times and you will become sick. Why is there is a prison for asylum people? Why are they in the prison? Because they ran from war!

I read about history and the Nazi times in Germany.. You understand, how this was possible.
Our situation in Germany comes out what has happened in the past. It did not end in German society. They don‘t want to burn us in the oven, but they want to burn us in another way.

In the end, what you want to tell the German authorities?

I want to tell the German lawmakers, that with this kind of deportations you cannot solve the problem. They will hate Germany. If you don‘t listen to people, they explode at some point.

It is coming back to you, if Millions of people hate you. Why they don‘t send the doctors back to Afhanistan? Why not the ingenieurs? They accept them, but they send the normal people back. They need doctors and ingeniurs, they don‘t need us.

I love Germany, not because of the money or the social benefits. I have a lot of respect, even if they push me in the danger, I still want to thank the good people there and for the time I spend there.

Greece: Hunger Strike in Elliniko Camp in Athens

Hunger Strike in Elliniko CampInfomobile Information with, about and for refugees in Greece

On 5th February 2017, most of the adults among the 711 refugees residing in a state-run Camp in the former Athens National Airport (Camp Elliniko II), in the majority coming from Afghanistan, started a hunger strike to protest against their degrading living conditions demanding for their transfer to homes, papers and freedom of movement for all. As reported by one of the refugees, it is very likely that residents of the two other camps in Elliniko (the nearby Olympic baseball and a hockey stadiums) might join in the protest tomorrow.

Among the 1,600 refugees living in the three camps of Elliniko there are some who are there already since one year. Elliniko Camp was opened already back in autoumn 2015, in a period where thousands were arriving to Greece and many stayed homeless in the parks and squares of Athens.
Planned as a temporary solution to ‘clear’ the capitals’ streets from the many homeless and repeatedly announced to be closed as belonging to one of the most infamous camps in Greece, it still stayed open until today, but always portrayed as ‘provisory’ under the UNHCR-category ‘informal site’.

Refugees used to live in the former airport throughout 2016 for months suffering under overcrowdedness, filthy insufficient toilettes and showers, inadequate food and without any information or legal aid. While the population has been reduced visible, the camp still is inadequate to host refugees and living conditions remain poor. Many highly vulnerable people still stay there. There are elderly, pregnant women, single mothers, people with mental health problems, people with chronic and
heavy diseases etc. In the meantime, many refugees are living there since one year.

Amongst others, refugees who started the protest complained about the quality of the food, lack of basic needs as for example milk and diapers for babies and toddlers, no hot water, no laundry, lack of translators for sick persons who have to go to hospital and no coverage of their transportation there. It is matter of survival, they state. They do not care about having more clothes or more food. But: food which doesnt’ make sick. Enough food, in order not to be hungry. Heating in order not to freeze.

“There are only a hand full of persons among us who speak English
and who can translate. They have to accompany anyone who gets sick to
the hospital, as the authorities and NGOs do not provide us with
translators for these purposes nor are there translators found in the
hospitals. We don’t even get the transportation costs re-funded for the
public transport used while accompanying some sick person. Some of us
got fined more than 30 times already for using the public transportation
without tickets. We will have severe problems in our asylum procedure,
to get an ID and passport, if recognized, if we have open fines to pay.
And they will increase successively if unpaid.”

Refugees living in Elliniko are suffering also mentally from the living conditions in the camp and their insecure situation in Greece and Europe.

“There are often fights. No one feels safe. People are in a
miserable state. they don’t know what to do. Many fear to stay forever
in Greece, where even Greek people cannot survive. There are no jobs,
there is no future. We fear European policies, which aim to increase
deportations of Afghans. Some of us have their relatives back in
Afghanistan. They cannot sleep at night, because they left them back in
conflict. There are people staying here who drink and fight. There is no
safety in the camp. There is no survival in Greece and there is no
safety in Afghanistan.”

More than 60% of the refugees in all three Elliniko Sites are women and
children

Amongst the refugee population in the camp are women with their kids awaiting their transfer to another European state where their husbands are. There are small kids with Asthma, like this 4-year-old girl who has to go to hospital almost every single night. People lock the doors to protect the salon from the cold, so no fresh air can enter. Many people smoke inside, others cook. The sewage water from the toilettes smells. So many get problems to breath. There is also a young man who had so
severe psychological problems, that he had to be transferred into the psychiatric clinic for a month. He was paranoid, thinking at any point someone wanted to kill him. He is taking medicaments now, but he is back in the camp, staying among 700 persons with his family. There is this pregnant lady in her 6th month, who often gets pains and has to visit the hospital again and again. She still lives there. Another woman just gave birth in there one month before. She is also still there.

Now, the refugees are trying to rase their voices to the world. They are already self-organised, having elected five representatives and holding plenaries since months. Now they want to provoke change, as they cannot suffer any longer.

“I am in danger in Afghanistan. I am even in danger in Greece. I was
told to get myself an appointment at the Asylum Service via Skpye, but
Skype isn’t responding.”

A woman holding a speech on the protest today said:

“We left Afghanistan because of the life-threatening situation and
for a future for our children. You closed the borders in front of us.
You locked us up in Greece. Now you are responsible to provide us with
what is needed to survive at least. Our children get sick here, and the
one doctor we have here for a few hours a day doesn’t give them medicine
but tell them to go an drink some water or some juice. We have the right
to have a good doctor, to have medicine. Even a pregnant woman gave
birth here, because the ambulance came so late.”

“There are mice in here. There is so much garbage outside. People
get sick from being here.”

Most adult refugees living in the camp attended the hunger strike today and plan to continue until the authorities, UNHCR and Danish Refugee Council (DRC) who are responsible in the camp listen and react to their demands:

– Open homes! Open the cities! Immediate evacuation of all into
dignified living conditions!

“We need to stay in the city and in our own rooms or flats. We don’t
want to be transferred to just another tent camp or prefab camp at the
margins of society! We want our children to go to school and we want to
go to work and earn our own living by ourselves in order to build up our
lives independently. We want to be free and participate in daily life as
all others do in this country.”

– Give papers and residence to stay to all refugees and allow anyone who
wants to move to another country to relocate legally and to join their
relatives! No discrimination of certain nationalities!

“The relocation program is discriminative. The right of free
movement should be given to all refugees. Many have their mothers,
fathers, brothers or sisters, their children or grandparents abroad.
Everybody has the right to be with his or her families. All people have
the right to live and work, somewhere, where it is possible to survive.
Even Greeks are searching for jobs outside of Greece. They are surviving
by returning to stay with their families. We have no one to help us
here, no one to open his or her house for us or to give us food. If
there is a chance to survive here, to find a job here, then we will
stay. As long as there isn’t, we should be allowed to move on legally.”

– Stop deportations to Turkey! Stop deportations to Greece! Stop
deportations to Afghanistan! Stop deportations to any unsafe countries!
The right to life for all!

“We fight for our rights. We fight for the rights of the others too.
The ones who are on the islands now, should be allowed to come to the
mainland, to seek asylum here, to stay here. Currently, people hardly
arrive to Greece anymore. The Turkish and the Greek Coast Guard,
together with the European Coast Guard fight refugees back on the sea
border. They stop them, from arriving to a place for asylum and
protection. The few who still come should be given a chance to stay.
Some of them who were allowed to move to the mainland arrive to Athens
without a place to stay. They are not permitted in the camps. Others
come to Athens without permit. They even have to return to the island.
We want freedom for all.”

“They want to start returning refugees who have been fingerprinted
here after March 15th of this year, back to Greece. No one can survive
here. We like to be in Greece. There are some nice people here, the
weather is good and the mentality of the Greeks is a little bit like our
own. But there are no jobs and there is no help for us. So how can we
find a home? How can we secure food for our kids? We also liked much
more to be in our homes in Afghanistan. But there is so safety but but
only war.”

“Europe is talking about the deportation of Afghans. Some countries
started already to return our people back even though their lives are in
danger in Afghanistan. Our president has signed a deal with Europe to
get money in exchange for taking refugees back. But our own politicians
keep their families in Europe for their own safety. European governments
advice their own citizens not to visit our country for safety reasons.
If we go back, we will die. Everybodys’ lives matter!”

Afghan Refugees Movement جنبش مهاجرین افغان‎Keine Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan!

Zum 14. Dezember 2016, 17:30 – 20:00: Protest gegen erste Sammelabschiebung nach Afghanistan direkt vor Ort am Franfkurter Flughafen


Am Mittwoch, den 14. Dezember findet eine erste Sammelabschiebung nach Afghanistan statt. Der Charter-Flug startet um 18:40h vom Frankfurter Flughafen. Betroffen sind ca. 50 Personen.
Dagegen richtet sich am selben Tag am Frankfurter Flughafen – wie schon vergangenen Samstag – der Protest von einem breiten regionalen Bündnis, darunter u.a. das Afghan Refugees Movement.
Es wird eine Demonstration direkt vor Ort am Terminal 1 des Frankfurter Flughafens geben. Beginn ist um 17:30h.

Während das Auswärtige Amt Reisewarnungen veröffentlicht und es unbestritten ist, dass sich 2016 die Sicherheitslage in Afghanistan erneut verschärft hat, drängt das Bundesinnenministerium unter Thomas De Maiziere auf Massenabschiebungen von afghanischen Asylsuchenden. Unter massgeblichem Einfluss deutscher Politiker*innen hat die EU der afghanischen Regierung ein Abkommen aufgezwungen, das in den kommenden Monaten die Abschiebung von tausenden Geflüchteten ermöglichen soll. Dafür soll sogar ein spezielles Abschiebeterminal in Kabul gebaut werden.
Dagegen formiert sich bereits seit Wochen und Monaten Widerstand von Geflüchteten und Unterstützer_innen. So hatte erst am 19. November das Afghan Refugees Movement in Frankfurt demonstiert.

“Wenn Afghanistan sicher ist, was macht dann die Bundeswehr in Afghanistan?”, sagteine Person vom Afghan Refugees Movement und weiter: “DIe ganze Welt weiß, dass Afghanistan nicht sicher ist. Wenn es sicher wäre, würden wir nicht unser Land, unsere Familien und Verwandten verlassen.

Zudem ist auch angesichts der aktuellen rassistischen Stimmung sowie dem vorherrschenden Kurs der Bundesregierung insbesondere des Bundesinnenministeriums davon auszugehen, dass dies nicht die einzige Sammelabschiebung nach Afghanistan bleibt. Dagegen wird sich jedoch auch in Zukunft Protest und Widerstand formieren

“Wir glauben das alle Menschen das Recht darauf haben in Sicherheit zu leben und das Recht dazu haben auszuwählen, wo sie leben wollen. So steht auch in der allgemeinen Erklärung der Menschenrechte der UN, dass jeder Mensch das Recht darauf hat in Frieden und Sicherheit zu leben” sagt eine Person vom Afghan Refugees Movement.

afghandemo_fb

Afghanistan ist alles andere als sicher.
Seit mehr als drei Jahrzehnten sind Menschen auf der Flucht vor Terror und Krieg.
Keine Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan!

Demonstration am 10.12.2016, um 12:00 Uhr, U-Bahn Turmstraße, Berlin

Der nun seit fast vier Jahrzehnten andauernde Krieg in Afghanistan hat 6 Millionen Menschen weltweit in die Flucht getrieben, und 2015 mehr als 200.000 Menschen nach Europa. Damit gehören Afghan*innen zur zweitgrößten Gruppe Asylsuchender in der Europäischen Union. Der Abzug internationaler Truppen und der damit verbundene wachsende Einfluss der Taliban sowie der Eintritt der IS (Islamischer Staat)machen Afghanistan zu einem der unsichersten Flecken auf der Erde. Die Situation verschärft sich durch die Unfähigkeit der langsam zerfallenden Einheitsregierung adäquat auf die politischen, ökonomischen und gesellschaftlichen Herausforderungen zu reagieren. Der größte Anteil der Geflüchteten sind Angehörige religiöser und ethnischer Minderheiten, Frauen und Kinder. Allein die Ereignisse der vergangenen sechs Monate sind ein Zeugnis dafür, dass Afghanistan alles andere als ein sicheres Herkunftsland ist.


• Im Juli starben mehr als hundert friedlich demonstrierende Menschen durch einen Bombenanschlag in der Hauptstadt Kabul.
• Im September wurden zum wiederholten Male unschuldige Zivilist*innen in der Provinz Wardak durch die IS-Miliz entführt und enthauptet. Im selben Monat eroberte die Talibanbewegung zum zweiten Mal in diesem Jahr die einst durch die deutsche Bundeswehr mitverwaltete und sichergestellte Provinz Kunduz. Zehntausende Menschen wurden innerhalb ihres Landes vertrieben.
• Im Oktober während des Aschurafestes starben hunderte Angehörige der schiitischen Glaubensrichtung bei aufeinanderfolgenden Terroranschlägen in Kabul und Masar-I-Sharif.
• Im November kam es landesweit zu vermehrten Entführungen unschuldiger Zivilist*innen. In der Provinz Faryab wurde ein junges Paar außergerichtlich zum Tode verurteilt. Bei einem terroristischen Bombenanschlag auf das deutsche Konsulat in Masar-I-Sharif kamen sechs Menschen ums Leben, über hundert wurden schwer verletzt. 27 Menschen fielen einem Anschlag auf eine Moschee in Kabul zum Opfer, dutzende schwer verletzt.


Und dies ist nur der kleine Bruchteil an Informationen, der es in die europäischen Medien geschafft hat. Allein in den letzten neun Monaten wurden über 2.500 Menschen durch unzählige Anschläge und außergerichtliche Entscheide getötet. Gleichzeitig wächst täglich die Gefahr des Ausbruchs eines ethnischen und sektiererischen Bürgerkriegs. Terroristen, wie Taliban und IS, gewinnen dramatisch schnell an territorialem Einfluss, während die afghanische Regierung zusammenbricht. Inzwischen kontrollieren Taliban und der IS mehr als die Hälfte aller Provinzen. Durch die steigende Zahl an Terroranschlägen und Kriminalität durchleben die Menschen in der Hauptstadt Kabul eine fortwährende Angst um das eigene Leben und das ihrer Angehörigen. Die afghanische Wirtschaft ist gekennzeichnet durch die anhaltende und stets wachsende Kriegs- und Kriminalitätsökonomie, in der Talban, der IS, Drogenbarone und Schmuggler als die lukrativsten Arbeitgeber gelten.


Afghanistan kann weder für Einheimische noch für Auslandsvertretungen und NGOs als sicher gelten. Eine Abschiebung nach Afghanistan bedeutet das Todesurteil für Frauen, Kinder und ältere Menschen, und für Männer die Zwangsrekrutierung – entweder für Taliban, den IS oder die syrische Armee zu kämpfen (vor allem im Iran werden afghanische Männer gezwungen für das Assad-Regime zu kämpfen). Mit dem im Oktober unterzeichneten EU-Afghanistan-Abkommen wird die Weiterbewilligung von Hilfsgeldern an eine Wiederaufnahme der Flüchtlinge durch die afghanische Regierung geknüpft. Diese unmenschliche Art der Erpressung seitens der EU widerspricht allen humanistischen und demokratischen europäischen Idealen.

Wir erklären mit gemeinsamer Stimme…

1. das EU-Afghanistan Abkommen als menschenrechtswidrig;

2. die Abschiebung junger Männer als einen Zwang in den Kriegsdienst – in Afghanistan oder in Syrien;

3. die afghanische Regierung als unfähig, die Grundbedürfnisse von 1,5 Millionen Binnenflüchtlingen und zehntausenden Rückkehrer*innen aus Pakistan, dem Iran und Europa zu decken;

4. die wenigen sogenannten sicheren Regionen in Afghanistan zu isolierten Gefängnissen, deren Zufahrtswege und Nachbarregionen Schauplätze von Entführungen und Terroranschlägen sind.


… und fordern…

1. den sofortigen europaweiten Abschiebestopp nach Afghanistan;

2. das sofortige Einstellen des medialen und institutionellen Psychoterrors mit der ständigen Androhung einer Abschiebung gegen Menschen, die seit fast vier Jahrzehnten auf der Flucht vor Krieg und Terror sind;

3. die sofortige Aufnahme afghanischer Menschen in Integrations- und Partizipationsmaßnahmen.

Schließt euch unseren Forderungen an und kommt am Internationalen Tag der Menschenrechte
zur Demonstration am Samstag, den 10.12.2016um 12:00 Uhr, U-Bahn Turmstraße.

فراخوان
با وجود افرايش ناامنی ها و گسترش موج حملات تروریستی در افغانستان، دولت فدرال آلمان تصمیم دارد تا پناهجويان افغانستانى را از اين كشور اخراج نمايد. بر طبق گزارش يك روزنامه آلمانى، وزارت داخله آلمان قصد دارد تا ١٢٥٣٩ پناهجوی افغانستانی را به صورت اجبار از اين كشور اخراج و به افغانستان بفرستد.
گرچه اپوزسیون و فراکسیون حزب چپ و سبزها در پارلمان آلمان شدیداً مخالف این تصمیم است اما استدلال وزارت داخله آلمان مبنی بر اخراج مهاجرین افغانستانی این است که مراکز شهرها در افغانستان از امنیت کافی برخوردار بوده و اخراج شده ها می توانند در این مراکز شهرها و ولایات زندگی کنند.
پس هموطن!
برای اعلان مخالفت با این تصمیم دولت آلمان، همه باهم يكجا شده و به تصميم اخراج مهاجرين افغانستانى از آلمان و ساير كشورهاى اروپايى “نه” مى گويم.
بدينوسيله اعلان مى گردد كه قرار است روز شنبه تاریخ 10.12.2016 در شهر برلین تظاهرات بزرگی برگزار گردد که در هماهنگی این تظاهرات بزرگ چندین نهاد افغانستانى و آلمانی همكار يكديگر بوده اند.
تلاش های شبانه روزی دوستان تان برای هماهنگی و آمادگی این تظاهرات بزرگ و سراسری در برلین جریان دارد.
پس از همین اکنون در هر شهر آلمان که هستید برای این تاریخ آمادگی بگیرید که به برلین بیاید و صدای انزجار خود را علیه تصمیم اخراج پناهجویان افغانستانى به افغانستانِ ناامن به گوش دولتمردان آلمانی و سیاستمداران اروپایی برسانید.

Demonstration: Keine Abschiebung nach Afghanistan, Samstag 22.10. in Hamburg

Keine Abschiebung nach Afghanistankeine-abschiebung-nach-afghanistan-pashtuDEMONSTRATION: KEINE ABSCHIEBUNG NACH AFGHANISTAN
Samstag 22.10. | 12 Uhr | Hachmannplatz (Hamburg HBF)

Aufruf des Bündnis “Recht auf Stadt – never mind the papers!” zur
Demonstration gegen Abschiebungen am 22.10.2016:

Mit dem Aufschwung der rechten Hetze und Stimmungsmache von Pegida und AfD sind die regierenden Parteien in Bund und Ländern immer mehr auf eine Politik der Abschottung, der Ausweisung und der Einschränkung grundlegender Rechte eingeschwenkt. Menschen, die geflüchtet sind, werden als „Problem“ markiert, für das eine „Lösung“ gefunden werden müsse. Ein Paradebeispiel für diese menschenverachtenden “Lösungen” ist das jüngste Abschiebeabkommen zwischen der EU und Afghanistan, welches Anfang Oktober 2016 als Gegenleistung für ein milliardenschweres “Hilfspaket” abgeschlossen wurde. Das Abkommen soll die Abschiebung von 80.000 afghanischen Geflüchteten erleichtern und sieht sogar vor, dass am Flughafen in Kabul ein Extra-Terminal für Abschiebungen gebaut werden soll.

Das Abkommen mit der afghanischen Regierung passt zu den anderen Anti-Flüchtlings-Deals der EU (erinnert sei an den Deal mit Erdogan diesen Sommer) und ist Ausdruck einer insgesamt gegen Geflüchtete und Migrant*innen gerichteten Politik. Die Asylrechtsverschärfungen diesen und letzten Jahres dienen als gesetzliche Grundlage für eine drastische Abschiebepolitik, die neben dem Sterben-lassen durch  Abschottung im Mittelmeer die Hauptreaktion auf die verstärkten Flucht und Migrationsbewegungen der letzen Jahre sein soll. Hierbei schreckt speziell die deutsche Regierung nicht davor zurück, immer mehr Länder als „sicher“ zu deklarieren – trotz nachweislicher Verfolgung von Minderheiten, trotz rassistischer Ausgrenzung oder Krieg. So kommt es, dass um ein “Problem” schnell loszuwerden, dann eben auch über den täglichen Terror und Krieg in Afghanistan hinweggesehen wird.

An vielen Stellen regt sich bereits der Widerstand gegen Abschiebungen, zuletzt gingen am 24. September fast 2000 Menschen gegen Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan auf die Straße. Jetzt ist an der Zeit unsere Kräfte zu vereinen und uns der gewaltsamen Abschiebepraxis entgegenzustellen. Zeigen wir den Regierenden, dass wir uns nicht spalten und gegeneinander auspielen lassen! Es gibt keine “guten” und “schlechten” Geflüchteten und keine legitimen Abschiebungen. Lasst uns zusammen aufstehen für ein Hamburg für Alle!

Kommt zur Demonstration “Keine Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan” am Samstag 22.10. um 12 Uhr auf dem Hachmannplatz und zeigt euch gemeinsam mit uns solidarisch. Bleiberecht für Alle!

Durch eine Neubewertung der Sicherheitslage in Afghanistan und das aktuelle Abschiebeabkommen zwischen EU und afghanischer Regierung hat sich die Situation von afghanischen Geflüchteten in Deutschland dramatisch verschlechtert. Ihnen wird keine Bleibeperspektive eingeräumt. Daraus folgt ein erschwerter Zugang zu Sprachkursen, Wohnraum und Arbeitsmarkt, wodurch ihnen jegliche gesellschaftliche Teilhabe verwehrt wird. Der Druck der angekündigten Abschiebungen lastet schwer auf uns allen und macht ein normales Leben unmöglich. In Hamburg gibt es die größte afghanische Community in Europa, wir fühlen uns hingezogen zu dieser Stadt. Doch jetzt macht sich auch hier die Angst breit und wir fühlen uns ausgeschlossen und allein gelassen. Wir begrüßen es, dass Menschenrechtsorganisationen zum Protest gegen Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan aufrufen und wollen auf unserer Demonstration mit eigener Stimme unserer gemeinsamen Forderung Gehör verschaffen: Stoppt die Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan!”

Demonstration: No deportations to Afghanistan

Saturday 22.10. | 12 AM | Hachmannplatz (Hamburg Central Station)

Call of the alliance “Right to the city – never mind the papers!” for the demonstration against deportations on the 22.10.2016:

With the rise of right-wing agitation and propaganda by Pegida and AfD, the ruling parties in Germany have more and more switched their policies towards sealing-off borders, deporting migrants and restricting basic human rights. People that have been forced to flee are marked as „problems“ that have to be „solved“. A textbook example  for these inhuman “solutions” is the recent Deportation Deal between the EU and Afghanistan. It was passed in the beginning of October 2016  in return for an “aid packet” worth several billion Euros and is supposed to facilitate the deportation of around 80.000 Afghan refugees. Even the construction of an extra terminal for deportations at the airport in Kabul is part of it.

The treaty with the Afghan government matches the other anti-refugee-deals recently brokered by the EU (remember the Deal with Erdogan this summer) and is a manifestation of a policy that is
generally directed against refugees and migrants. The cutbacks in asylum rights in past years serve as the legal basis for a drastic deportation policy, and is supposed to be, apart from the killing
through the walls-up policy in the Mediterranean, one of the main reactions to the increased numbers of refugees and migrants in the past years. Here especially the German government doesn’t hesitate to declare more and more countries as “safe” – in spite of proven persecution of minorities, racist exclusion or war. This is how the daily terror and war in Afghanistan is simply overlooked in order to quickly get rid of a “problem”.

Resistance to deportation is already in place, just a few weeks ago nearly 2000 people took to the streets in Hamburg to protest against deportations to Afghanistan. Now it is time to join our efforts and oppose this violent deportation policies. Let’s show the government that we won’t let them divide us and play us off against each other. There are no “bad” and “good” refugees and no legitimate deportations.

Let’s fight together for a Hamburg for everyone!

Come to the demonstration “No deportations to Afghanistan” on Saturday 22.10. at 12 AM on the Hachmannplatz and show your solidarity together with us! Right to stay for everyone!

Refugee School and University Strike Berlin against Racism, 19th of November 2015

Whether Pegida or State – burning homes are the fruits of their sowing

Over 3000 students from schools and universities took to the streets to protest against racism and fascism in Germany. The rally was initially led by people from Afghanistan who in alliance with the students protested for asylum rights. The students were convinced that it was very important for them to be on the streets and participate in the rally rather than to spend the day in the class room. One student who had grown up in Zambia and Ethiopia expressed that he had not witnessed such levels of racism in these African countries. Even though he had not experienced racism directly in Germany, he said that it was very important for him to be politically involved and protest against racism. The students used social media to organise and were happy with the successful turnout. The rally was also joined by anti-gentrification protestors. Songs in several languages streamed from the protest vans. The students chanted ‘Refugees are Welcome Here’ and ‘Antifacista’ demo chants. There were several speeches in German and the demonstration and the four hour long march ended in Mehringdamm.
