Pressemitteilung: 85 hungerstreikende Geflüchtete am Sendlinger Tor Platz in München für Bleiberecht

„Der Kampf geht weiter. Gerade haben wir mit der dritten Phase unseres Protestes angefangen, welche bedeutet: Hungerstreik.“ (Quelle:  https://refugeestruggle.org/de/article/der-kampf-geht-weiter)

Seit dem 31. Oktober sind wir, 85 geflüchtete Menschen am Sendlinger Tor Platz in München in den Hunger Streik getreten. Bis auf Wasser nehmen wir keine Nahrung zu uns. Unser Protest-Camp befindet sich an selbigem Ort, an welchem wir uns auch am 07. September 2016 nach unserer Non-Citizens Konferenz für einen Monat niederließen. Am 08. Oktober 2016 ist unser Protestmarsch von diesem Platz aus Richtung Nürnberg losgezogen. All diese Proteste samt ihrer Demonstrationen hatten und haben das Ziel Bleiberecht zu erwirken!

„Heute ist der dritte Tag unseres Hungerstreiks, etwas wovor wir zögerten zu tun, aus Respekt vor der Religion, aus Respekt vor unserem Körper, aber auch aus Respekt vor dem Geschenk des Lebens, welches wir hier auf der Erde genießen konnten. Es ist kein Spiel, wie mich eine Journalistin fragte, es handelt sich um eine Frage von Leben oder Tod, und in jedem Falle haben wir kein Leben, und dieses Leben, unser Leben – wir haben nichts was kostbarer ist –  damit spielen die Autoritäten, sie lassen uns depressiv werden, psychatrisieren uns, alle krank von der Flucht, von der Schlaflosigkeit oder den stressbedingten Krisen.“ (Das Statement finden Sie in voller Länge  unter: https://refugeestruggle.org/de/article/der-kampf-geht-weiter)

Heute um 12:00 Uhr mittags musste der erste Notruf für einen Hungerstreikenden getätigt werden. Die Person wurde auf die Intensivstation gebracht.

The Struggle Continues!

3rd day of Hunger Strike at Sendlinger Tor

On the 31st of October the struggle continues, in a nicer way. We just started the third phase of our protest, which means: hunger strike. In the first phase we were living at Sendlinger Tor to show our realities in the camps, eating, sleeping, watching TV, going to the toilet, and silencing all comments, which claim that we have everything. But our reality, our life is a modern prison, this is what we wanted to show. But we also wanted to draw the attention to the politicians and authorities. But unfortunately nothing, nothing at all came back from the authorities. At this point we started the second episode, which meant marching from Munich to Nuremberg. On the way we informed more people, distributed flyers, had direct contact with the population, but also and especially we were facing the BAMF and its bureaucrats, who are with their coffees in front of their computers, destroying our lives and our hope for integration into a society, that we had been part of for many years.

From the moment on, we fled persecution, war, corruption and crossed the impossible – namely the sea, the desert, and all the dangers that we met to find security – we had to realize unfortunately that the reality is another one.

Today is the third day of the hungerstrike, something that we were hesitating to do because of respect for religion, respect for our body, but also respect for the gift of life which we have the chance to enjoy here on earth. It is not a game, as a journalist asked me, it is a question of life or death and in any case, we don’t have a life, and this life, our life – it is the most precious thing we have – with this the authorities play, we turn depressive, get psychiatrized, all the illnesses which come of the flight, the insomnia, the crises caused by stress.

I ask myself, why not offering our lives to them and then they can decide how they want.

This situation cannot stay as it is, it has to change and we are doing all the necessary what has to be done, when it has to be done, because we have nothing to lose. Absolutely nothing and if there is nothing to lose, it is an opportunity, which we need to take, so let’s use it.
