english: Press release embassy action

Counter Offensive to the Nigerian Government Role in  the brutal deportation of African Refugees, Nigerian and Non Nigerian Activists have taken to Occupy the Nigerian Embassy Berlin to demand the cancellation of all deportation agreement with the German State.

Deportation is only possible if a state is ready to „take back“ the person concerned and for this purpose, the German authorities would do anything to obtain traveling certificates to deport Refugees to any Country
wherever they could be accepted.Refugees are constantly summoned to forced deportation hearings where they are interviewed by Embassy Officials who would have to confirm their origin and identity through Physical appearance to aid the issuance of traveling certificates as a legitimation for their deportation.

These forced deportation hearing are randomly conducted in different German City on a monthly basis in an atmosphere of massive Police presence and abuses – From Halberstadt to Koln, Bielefeld to Karlsruhe, Dortmund to Munich, Ludwigsburg to Dusseldorf. Enough is Enough as we have reached an Offensive threshold to say No to deportation threats and abuses because deportation is Colonial Heritage and Persecution. We are therefore provoked to unlash appropriate action against such acts that continues to traumatize and destroy Migrants and Refugees in Germany

Refugee and non-Refugee Activist have for many years condemned this routine deportation collaboration between the Nigerian Government and the German European Government through the enforcement  of militarized Frontex – “Frontex being the boarder Watch dog of the European union with extended artificial Borders up to Refugee Home Countries is mandated with the responsibility of chartered deportation operations from Europe”

The January 2012 agreement between the Nigerian Government (Nigerian Immigration Boss – Mrs. Rose Uzoma)and Frontex stands as a renewed legitimation to the brutal deportation practices thus causing many deaths
and Trauma for Refugees thus requiring an immediate cancellation because the same European Government who has made us refugees must be ready to take the responsibility of their act.

It is based on this Position that we are calling on President Goodluck Jonathan to take immediate step to cancel all deportation agreements and collaboration between Frontex with the German State.

The obvious habit of ignoring the call for human rights can no longer be tolerated hence the decision of Nigerian Refugees occupation of  the Nigerian Embassy in Berlin as a signal to more offensive counter action
against their deportation collaboratory role.

As first step to cooperation, We demand  a Stop to the routine practices of Forced-Mobile deportation Hearing with immediate effect (i.e.) 16.10.12 to 19.10.12  deportation hearing planned to take place at the State Police Premises, Alte Weingartner Str. 49, 76227 Karlsruhe-Durlach.

Furthermore, we are undertaken an investigation in connection with suspicion of free access for the German Immigration Service to access Biometric Data of Nigerian Passport Holders – a development from the current act of  criminalization of Nigerian migrants with a direct  call for President Goodluck Jonathan to withdraw in case there is  any of such.

We denounce every form of deportation collaboration because  deportation itself  is a form of  racial persecution and elimination and exists on basic distinction of Europe being the progressive and developed while Africa is defined as backward.

We say No to all forms of deportation collaboration!
Stop Deportation
