München: Demonstration gegen Sammelabschiebung nach Afghanistan

Karawane München Not Safe

von Karawane Münich

Update!

Zeit: 31.05.2017, 19 Uhr
Ort: Feldherrnhalle (U-Bahn Odeonsplatz)

Abschiebeflug nach Afghanistan ist verschoben, nicht abgesagt!
Der Abschiebeflug vom Münchner Flughafen nach Afghanistan wurde für heute Abend abgesagt. Das ist kein Grund zur Freude, denn der Flug wurde nicht etwa abgesagt, weil die Bundesregierung ihre Meinung geändert hat, dass Afghanistan kein sicheres Land ist, stattdessen wurde der Abschiebeflug “nur für heute” und aus “Rücksicht auf Botschaftsangehörige“ der deutschen Botschaft in Kabul, abgesagt. (Quelle: http://www.sueddeutsche.de/…/anschlag-in-kabul-abschiebeflu…)
Dieses Vorgehen ist einfach nur zynisch und makaber. Wir werden trotzdem demonstrieren, auch wenn der Flug abgesagt wurde. Die Menschen sollen nach wie vor abgeschoben werden, egal wie oft es sich durch neue Anschläge zeigt, dass Afghanistan nicht sicher ist.
Der Demonstration am Flughafen sagen wir ab. Stattdessen kommt alle um 19 Uhr zur Feldherrnhalle am Odeonsplatz und zeigt mit uns euren Protest gegen die deutsche Abschiebepraxis.

Wo & Wann: 31.05.17, 19 Uhr Flughafen München – MAC-Forum

Treffpunkt am HBF: 17:40 am S-Bahngleis vorne.
Abfahrt: S-Bahn S8 17:55 vom HBF, Ankunft 18:35 am Flughafen

Die Bundesregierung und auch die bayerische Staatsregierung halten weiterhin an ihrer menschenverachtenden
Politik fest und führen weitere Sammelabschiebungen nach Afghanistan durch. Im letzten halben Jahr wurden bereits
insgesamt 106 Menschen nach Afghanistan abgeschoben.

Trotz der Tatsachen, dass in Afghanistan Krieg herrscht, dass monatlich zahlreiche Zivilist*innen bei
Bombenanschläge sterben und dass sich die Situation in der vergangenen Zeit im ganzem Lande wieder
dramatisch verschlechtert hat, verweisen die politisch Verantwortlichen der deutschen Abschiebepolitik auf
vermeintlich „sichere“ Gebiete in Afghanistan und auf angebliche „innerstaatliche Fluchtalternativen“.
Doch Afghanistan ist auch und vor allem für abgeschobene Geflüchtete nirgendwo sicher! Und bereits jetzt
gibt es mehr als eine Millionen Binnenflüchtlinge in Afghanistan, die unzureichend oder gar nicht versorgt und
geschützt werden können!

Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan sind trotz der inzwischen breiten gesellschaftlichen Zustimmung für eine
„härtere Abschiebepolitik“ immer noch heftig umstritten! Wir müssen gemeinsam und lautstark dafür sorgen, dass
der Rückhalt für diesen widerlichen Kurs der Bundesregierung weiter schwindet!
Wir solidarisieren uns mit allen afghanischen Geflüchteten!
Keine Abschiebungen – nicht nach Afghanistan, nirgendwo hin!

Wegweisendes Urteil gegen den Einsatz für das Grundrecht auf Asyl – Haftstrafen für vier DemonstrationsteilnehmerInnen des March for Freedom

English

Einladung zur Pressekonferenz,

Montag 22.05.17, 11:00,

Waldemarstr. 46 10999 Berlin

 

3 Jahre nach dem international organisierten March for Freedom wurden vier TeilnehmerInnen einer friedlichen Demonstration in Luxembourg-Stadt zu hohen Geld- und Bewährungsstrafen verurteilt. Der Verlauf des Prozesses und das Gerichtsurteil erscheinen bei nüchterner Betrachtung äußerst willkürlich und keinen rechtsstaatlichen Maßstäben entsprechend.

Der March for Freedom setzte ein Zeichen für das Recht auf Bewegungsfreiheit und Asyl. Menschen mit und ohne Papiere überquerten friedlich mehrere Staatsgrenzen von Straßburg nach Brüssel. Die Demonstration in Luxemburg fand am 5.6.2014 anlässlich einer Tagung der EU-InnenministerInnen zum Thema „Kampf gegen illegale Immigration” statt.

Auf dem Kirchberg kam es zum Zusammenstoß mit der Polizei. Ohne Vorwarnung versuchte die planlos vorgehende Polizei unter Einsatz von scharfen Hunden wahllos Festnahmen durchzuführen. Der Einsatz der Polizei verursachte auf Seiten der Demonstrant*innen teilweise schwere Verletzungen, herbeigeführt durch Pferrerspray, Schlagstöcke und Hundebisse. Ein schwarzer Aktivist aus Berlin-Kreuzberg wurde auf dem Polizeirevier bis zur Bewusstlosigkeit misshandelt und rassistisch beleidigt.

Den Angeklagten wurde gemeinschaftlicher Verstoß gegen Art. 269 des Luxemburger StGB vorgeworfen (Rebellion), zudem noch einzeln Körperverletzung, Sachbeschädigung, Beleidigung und Widerstand. Während des Prozesses konnten keine konkreten Tatvorwürfe gemacht werden; die Angeklagten sind lediglich pauschal wegen “bewaffneter und geplanter Rebellion” zu sechs Monaten Haft auf Bewährung und zu Geldstrafen im hohen vierstelligen Bereich verurteilt worden. Das Verhalten der luxemburgischen Polizei spielte im Prozess keine Rolle, obwohl sich ein Untersuchungsausschuss des luxemburgischen Innenministeriums damit beschäftigte. In der Urteilsbegründung wurde vollständig auf Beweise verzichtet. Trotz widersprüchlicher Aussagen der PolizeizeugInnen wurde ein drastisches Urteil gefällt, was das willkürliche und unprofessionelle Vorgehen der luxemburgischen Justiz bestätigt.

In Luxemburg ging es darum, friedlichen Protest für Grundrechte zu kriminalisieren, wie es auch in Bezug auf das Camp am Oranienplatz in Berlin versucht wurde. “Die Politik der EU ist es die Leute zu spalten, sie zu diskriminieren, aber ich habe keine Angst. Ich kämpfe für die Freiheit und ich hoffe, dass alle Leute vestehen, dass es nicht kriminell ist, für die Freiheit und für seine Rechte zu kämpfen. Wir brauchen die Solidarität der Menschen in unserem Kampf. Es geht nicht, wegzuschauen, wenn andere Menschen um ihre Freiheit kämpfen müssen”, erklärt einer der Verurteilten. Dieser hat nun als Kosequenz für seinen friedlichen Protest und die Wahrnehmung seiner Grundrechte mit seiner Abschiebung zu rechnen. Seine Sicht auf die europäische Willkommenskultur wird er und die anderen Mitverurteilten am Montag in der Pressekonferenz darlegen.

Groundbreaking Ruling against Activists for Refugees’ Right to Asylum – Jail Time for Four Participants in the March for

Freedom – Press Conference

Monday, May 22, 2017 11 a.m.

Waldemarstr. 46


Three years after the internationally organized March for Freedom, four participants in a peaceful demonstration in the city of Luxembourg have been sentenced to restrictive suspended sentences and high fines. The entire trial appeared extremely arbitrary and did not correspond to fair legal practices.

The March for Freedom set a signal for the right to freedom of movement and Asylum. People, with and without “Papiers,” peacefully crossed boarders from Strasbourg to Brussels.  The demonstration in Luxemburg on June 5, 2014 on the occasion of the European Union  Ministers of the Interior meeting on “Fight against Illegal Immigration”.

In Luxemburg at the Kirchberg, it came to a clash with the police. Without any warning and no plan, the police indiscriminately sought to arrest demonstrators using ferocious dogs. The police operation included tear gas, night sticks and dog bites which resulted in severe injuries among the demonstrators. A black activist from Berlin-Kreuzberg was suffered racist slurs and was so badly mishandled that he lost consciousness.

The arrested demonstrators were charged plotting activities which break the law of the Luxemburg Criminal Code (Rebellion). In addition there were individual charges of Personal injury, property damage, insulting an officer and resisting arrest. During the trial there was not one concrete accusation. The defendants were indiscriminately sentenced to six month suspended jail time for “armed and planned rebellion”; and fines in the high four-digit range. The actions of the Luxemburg police played no role in the trial, even though there was an ongoing investigation by the Luxemburg Ministry of the interior looking into the matter.

The Court’s conclusion was independent of any factual evidence and ignored contradictory statements made by various police officers. They reached an extreme conclusion [“armed and planned rebellion”], which confirms the arbitrary and unprofessional approach of the Luxemburg court.

In Luxemburg it was all about criminalizing peaceful protests for basic rights. The same thing was tried against the refugee camp at Oranienplatz in Berlin. One of the convicted activists said: “The policy of the EU is to split and discriminate against people. But I am not afraid. I am fighting for freedom, and I hope that everyone understands, that it is not criminal to fight for freedom and basic rights. We need solidarity of people in our fight. It is not right to look the other way when other people have to fight for freedom.” In consequence for peaceful protests and exercising his fundamental rights, this refugee may face deportation. He and others will put forward their views of the European “Welcome Culture” on Monday at a press conference.

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!”

Mindestens 1000 Menschen demonstrierten zur Stunde auf der Turmstr. in Moabit gegen ihre drohende Abschiebung nach Afghanistan.

“Afghanistan ist kein sicheres Land!”

Rund 400 Demonstranten protestierten am Frankfurter Flughafen ebenso. Das Aktionsbündnis „Gegen Abschiebung Rhein-Main” hatte zu dem Protest am internationalen Tag der Menschenrechte aufgerufen.

Demo gegen Abschiebung nach Afghanistan

Aufruf zu Solidarität gegen Abschiebung
Kommt alle, egal welcher Nationalität ihr seid, um gegen Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan zu protestieren!
Heute sind es Menschen aus Afghanistan, morgen werden wir anderen Flüchtlinge betroffen sein. Die deutsche Regierung behauptet, dass Afghanistan ein sicheres Land ist.  Das behauptet sie auch von vielen anderen Ländern, in denen Krieg ist oder Menschen verfolgt werden.
Mit allen Mitteln will die deutsche Regierung dafür sorgen, dass weniger Flüchtlinge in Deutschland leben,  macht die Grenzen zu und schiebt ab.
Lassen wir uns nicht von der deutschen Asylpolitik spalten! Deutschland sortiert Flüchtlinge in gute oder schlechte Flüchtlinge, in Willkommene und Chancenlose.
Dazu sagen wir: Nein! Wir haben alle ein Recht auf Leben und Schutz.

Call for solidarity against deportation
Everyone, no matter what nationality you are, join to protest against deportations to Afghanistan!
Today people from Afghanistan, tomorrow we, other refugees, will be affected. The German government claims that Afghanistan is a safe country. They claim this also about many other countries where is war or people are persecuted.
With all  means the German government wants to ensure that fewer refugees live in Germany, by closing borders and deportation.
Let us not be divided by German asylum policy! Germany grades refugees in good or bad refugees, in those who are welcome and those who have no chance.
To this we say: No! We all have a right to live and for protection.

Appel à la solidarité contre la déportation
Venez tous, peu importe quelle nationalité vous êtes, pour protester contre les expulsions vers l’Afghanistan!
Aujourd’hui, c´est les gens de l’Afghanistan, demain d´autres pays serons touchés et aussi d’autres réfugiés. Le gouvernement allemand fait savoir que l’Afghanistan est un pays sûr. Ils ont également affirmé que de nombreux autres pays où il y a la guerre ou les gens sont persécutés. sont aussi des pays sûr. Le gouvernement allemand veut faire en sorte que moins de réfugiés pussent vivre en Allemagne,ils rendent les frontières fermez et déporte des gents.
Ne nous laissons pas nous divisez par la politique d’asile allemand! Qui classe les réfugiés qui sont les bonnes ou de mauvaises réfugiés ou qui sont les bienvenues et qui n´ont pas la chance.
Pour cela, nous disons: Non! Nous avons tous un droit de vivre et une droit à la protection.

NO BORDER! NO NATION! STOP DEPORTATION!

Stop Deporation Demo in Berlin, 22.10.2016, 14 Uhr

Stop Deportation group Demo in Berlin (English text below)

Wir rufen für den 22. Oktober 2016 zur Demonstration auf!

ABOUT: Stop Deporation – stoppt Abschiebungen nach Pakistan, stoppt Dublin-III-Abschiebungen nach Ungarn, stoppt alle Abschiebungen!

START: Berlin, U-Bhf Turmstrasse,
WANN: 22.10.2016,
TIME: 14:00 – 18:00 Uhr

Die Berliner Initiative „Stop Deportation Group“ solidarisiert sich mit pakistanischen Flüchtlingen und mit Flüchtlingen die von den Dublin-III-Verordnungen betroffen sind.

Die Europäische Union plante Ende 2015, tausende pakistanische Flüchtlinge abzuschieben, um Platz für „legitime“ Migrant_innen zu machen. Nun scheint Deutschland diese Praxis unter Hochdruck anzuwenden: Flüchtlinge aus Pakistan werden in Charterflüge gesetzt, in die Türkei ausgeflogen und von dort nach Islamabad/Pakistan abgeschoben.

Deutsche Behörden missachten das Grundgesetzt in Asylverfahren, um ihre eigene Agenda zu verfolgen. Die Berliner Gruppe “Stop Deportation Group” demonstriert gegen programmatische Abschiebungen, ohne dass die Geflüchteten angehört werden und ohne dass ihnen ein rechtmäßiges Asylverfahren zuteil wird. Wir verlangen, dass alle Asylverfahren rechtmäßig durchgeführt werden! Nicht nur pakistanische Flüchtlinge leiden unter dem Missbrauch durch die Behörden. Pakistanische Flüchtlinge sind jedoch besonders gefährdet, da ihnen im Falle einer Abschiebung Staatswillkür und Gefängnis drohen.

DER STRECKENVERLAUF AM 22.OKTOBER 2016:

-> U-Bhf Turmstraße bis Pariser Platz (siehe Anhang)

Lasst uns am 22. Oktober 2016 gemeinsam unsere Solidarität mit Geflüchteten bekunden!

Call for demonstration on the 22nd of October 2016

ABOUT: Stop deportations to Pakistan, stop Dublin III deportations to Hungary, stop all deportations!

START: Berlin, U-Bhf Turmstrasse,
DATE: 22.10.2016,
TIME: 14:00 – 18:00 Uhr

The Berlin based Stop Deportation Group calls to show solidarity with Pakistani refugees and those threatened by deportation under Dublin III. Join the rally on October 22nd 2016!

In 2015, the European Union made the decision to deport thousands of Pakistani refugees to “make room” for so-called “legitimate“ migrants. Now, this policy is being implemented in German practice: Refugees from Pakistan are forced to get on the next available charter flight to Turkey. They will then be deported to Islamabad, Pakistan.

Still, it becomes quite clear in some cases of asylum procedures that German authorities simply will not conform to legal standards if these do not fit their agenda. We protest against programmatic deportation! We demand ALL asylum procedures to be carried out according to the law! Not only do Pakistanis suffer from this abuse by German authorities – back in Pakistan they are threatened by the state’s despotism and thus the possibility of imprisonment. This happens in a huge scale, unseen by the public.

Route on October 22nd, 2016:

-> U-Bhf Turmstraße to Pariser Platz (email attachment)

Join us and show your solidarity with refugees, on October 22nd, 2016! Stop Deportation!

Let’s Unite – The REFUGEE is the movement and our Community is our defense in Europe: The “VOICE” Declaration on Protest March

The Voice Refugee Forum declaration on Protest March Munich to Nuremberg“The REFUGEE is the movement and our Community is our defense in Europe”
by Osaren Igbinoba of The VOICE Refugee Forum.

The REFUGEE is the movement and our community is our defense! The struggles of the refugees to organize in communities are a strategic and political move to ensure a participatory and representative position within and outside, in any progressive grassroot movement.

We are now in the belly of the monster. They want us to become their soldiers, to make them more powerful in their colonial systems. We know why we are here and we will never forget the people we have left behind in our homelands. We are in solidarity especially with those who are still on the the other side of the borders, fighting against terrible conditions only to survive one more day.

We are calling for the stop of all deportations and for freedom of movement for all.

The ongoing protest march is not the first organized by the „Refugee struggle for freedom“ and will not be the last refugee protest march in Bavaria. This protest will go a long way to empower the resistance of refugees in Bavaria as it strengthens our self-determination and makes our unity visibility in the refugee communities nationwide.

The refugee community is in movement and as we network together, we find immediate solution to problems. Through our coordinated protests and engagements let us work to unite and organise ourselves!

Those who are presently destroying our homelands are those who claim they are giving us shelter and residence! Those who are splitting, dividing our societies and provoking wars between our people, now are those who claim integrating us to their society! They claim that they are generous? People with material wealth are not generous, else they won’t be rich. Only the poor are generous, for they know what it means to have nothing.

We call on refugees to distance themselves from the pro-states institutions, organisations and political parties who feed and comfort themselves from the miseries and plights of the refugee. These networks have one thing in commom: they unite to depoliticize the struggles of activists within the movement. We know them when they call for a humanitarian solution while calling for and supporting massive deportations and isolation of refugees.

In reality they are keeping their deportation sword over our heads. They are also dividing us to “good” or “bad”, and “deserved” or “not deserved” refugees. They have still more tricks; they talk about the danger of Pegida and islamists, a prototype of the war produced by the very act of their system in Middle-east and Africa.

They expect us, the marginalized masses, to forget what they are really doing, tricking us into a schism with some of us being given better positions under their rule.

Our protests are more than 2 decades now and our resilience and resolve is unstoppable. For many years, we have shown our anger and without this, we would not have witnessed some changes although minimal in our treatment as humans. Since the defacto abolition of the 1993 rights for asylum in Germany, there have never been changes without struggles from the refugee communities. The refugee struggles built on the demand for justice cannot be completed without us the refugees and the community activists in the society.

Now, we are witnessing once more the refugee community in Bayern „REFUGEE STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM“, on the move from 8.-21.October this year, from Munich towards Nürenberg (the head quarter of the Federal Office for Migration in Germany). We are joining and calling on other refugees to unite in this protest to realise the refugee demands the for unconditional residence and open border, in protest against the unhuman conditions under which we live.

This is a protest march and a way to bring us together because our unity is our power. When we come together we find out all of us suffer from the same pain. We can exchange our experiences and we can organize our unity.

Come to this march or support it in your localities and by your words. Freedom and dignity are never going to be given to us as a present, we can have them through our collective struggles.

Gestern abend haben wir die „Flüchtlingskirche“ in der Wassertorstraße 21a in Berlin besetzt. Wir sehen keine andere Möglichkeit mehr für uns und unsere Kinder.

Nach Verhandlungen mit Kirchenvertretern haben wir vereinbart, die Nacht in einer Notunterkunft zu verbringen.

Heute morgen haben wir vor dem Flüchtlingssymposium am Gendarmenmakrt protestiert.

Momentan protestieren wir mit einer Kundgebung vor dem Deutschen Historischen Museum für ein Bleiberecht für Roma.

Wo wir diese und die nächsten Nächte schlafen können, ist noch immer unklar.

Kommt und solidarisiert euch. Alle Roma bleiben hier!
