HALBERSTADT NERESİ ++++ WHERE IS HALBERSTADT

picture of a camp for asylum seekers near Halberstadtin english further below

Almanya nın birçok yerinde olduğu gibi Magdeburg kentine bağlı olan Halberstadt da da bir mülteci kampı var. Şehirden ve insanlardan uzakta, ormanın ötesinde bulunan bu kampta, kampta kalan mültecilerin anlatımına göre yaklaşık 2000 kişi yaşıyor. Halberstadt mülteci kampından şehire ulaşmak istenildiğinde insanlar 45 dakika yürümek zorunda. Bu kampa gitmek için taşıma aracı bulmak oldukça güç.

Halberstadt, eskiden Polonya askerlerinin kullanmış olduğu bir askeri kampmış. Almanya da bulunan bütün eski askeri kampların yapısı aynı. Dikdörtgen şeklinde binalar var. Halbestad da kapasitenin üstünde mülteci olduğu için bu binaların dışında, geniş boş araziye tahtadan, tek katlı barakalar yapılmış. Bu baraka odaların içinde aşağı yukarı altı kişi kalıyor. Odaların içinde hapishanelerde kullanılanlara benzer iki katli demir ranzalar var. Tuvalet ve mutfaklar gene ek olarak yapılmış barakaların içinde.

Halberstadt da giderken mülteci kampına giden yolun üerindeki bir tabela dikkatleri çekiyor. Ok şeklindeki tabelanın üzerine sadece Asyl Mülteci yazıyor, tabelada başka bir yazı yok. Kampa giden yolun üzerinde dolaşan mülteciler var. Kampa girerken demir parmaklıklardan geçiliyor. Parmaklığın hemen ardında çok sayıda güvenlik görevlisi var. Güvenlik görevlilerinin hemen yanında da polis araçları ve polisler dikiliyor.

Kamp binasının bir köşesinde toplanmış dalgın ve üzüntülü mülteciler görünüyor. İnternet erişimi binanın sadece bu köşesinde var, kış soğuğunde internete erişmek isteyen mülteciler bu köşede dikilmek zorundalar.

Halberstadt mülteci kampı içinde mahkeme, sağlık, yemek gibi tüm şeyler var yani mülteciler sürekli bu izolasyon kampının içinde beklemek zorunda. Zaten isteseler de kampın dışına çıkma şansları yok. Nereye gidecekler. Bir yerlere gitmek için gerekli paraları yok ve mültecilerin şehir içindeki mekanlara gitmeleri o kadar kolay değil.

picture of a camp for asylum seekers near HalberstadtDaily Resistance gazetesi olarak bu kamptaki mülteci arkadaşlarımızı ziyaret ettik. Gazetelerimizi verdik ve mültecilerle beraber yemek yeyip sohbetler ettik. İzolasyonu kırmanın tek yolu, bu sistemi bilerek inşa eden sistemlere karşı mücadele etmektir. Almanya sisteminin mülteci kamplarında yaptığı izolasyon sistemi bilinçli bir politikanın ürünüdür. Mülteciler izolasyon içinde ezilip geldikleri yere kendi istekleri ile gitsinler diye böylesi bir izolasyon sistemi izleniyor.

Başbakan Merkel geçtiğimiz günlerde oturumu olmayan mültecilerin ülkeyi hızla terketmesi gerektiğini söyledi. Tunusla da geri gönderme anlaşması imzalandı. Merkel, gerekirse mültecileri atmak için zor kullanacaklarını söyledi.

 

++++++++++

Like in several cities in Germany, there is also a refugee camp in Halberstadt/Magdeburg. As it is reported, at least 2000 refugees are living in this refugee camp, which is pretty out of center and beyond the forest. Refugees have to walk at least 45 minutes when they want to reach the city center. Also it’s very difficult to find transportation to reach this camp.

Halberstadt had been a Polish military camp. The structure is quite similar to many other old military camps that are modified to refugee camps in Germany. The shape of the buildings is rectangular. A lot of single-storey, wooden buildings are seen on the wide hall in the camp because of over-capacity. At least 6 people are living in each barrack. There are double tier bunks in these rooms that remind people the prison. Some barracks are used as toilets and as kitchen.

When we were driving through the refugee camp of Halberstadt, we saw an interesting traffic sign. “Asylum” was written on this arrow shaped sign and nothing else. On the way to the camp, we saw the refugees were walking. When we got inside of the camp, we passed through gatings like at the entrance of a prison. Right behind the gatings a lot of security officers and next to them police officers with their cars were standing. After we passed the entrance we walked through the refugee camp. It was not very hard to see sadness on the faces of refugees. Then we saw a group of refugees standing next to a building. We found out that there is Wi-fi access here and people have to stand there to use it. It was really sad to see those people standing there in this cold weather and trying to use it.

The essential services such as court, hospital, food… are provided within the borders of this camp in order to provide isolation of the refugees. Moreover they have no choices to go out to, even when they are willing to. Where will they go? They don’t have enough money and also it’s not very easy to enter the places in Halberstadt, which is a very small city, surrounded by old buildings with a mostly right-wing society.picture of a camp for asylum seekers at Halberstadt

We visited our friends in this refugee camp as Daily Resistence Newspaper. We gave our newspapers, we ate something and we spoke with the refugees. The only way to break out of this isolation, is to struggle against this isolation system. The isolation system is an outcome of a planned policy in Germany. This policy is to suppress refugees in order to show them that Germany is not a good place either and in order to make them decide to turn back to their home countries, which are full of clashes, conflicts and war.

Recently, Merkel has declared that refugees who have no residence will be deported quickly and an agreement with Tunisia has been signed.
