Solidarity with the ‘strike of closed doors’ of 209 people from Sierra Leone in the transit camp Deggendorf

209 people from Sierra Leone on ‘strike of closed doors’ in the transit center Deggendorf

On Friday, 15th of December 2017, 209 people from Sierra Leone in the transit camp in Deggendorf started a ‘strike of closed doors’. In protest, the children and young people refused to attend the German class as access to other educational institutions is denied. The adults haven’t left the accommodation and denied to work in the 80 cents jobs. On Saturday, 16th of December 2017 they started a hunger strike. The protest involves 44 children and young people, as well as 40 women (among them 12 pregnant women) and 125 men. The starting point of the protest was the violent deportation of a man from Sierra Leone on Friday morning, which was stopped in the last minute at the airport.

Statement of striking refugees in Deggendorf

We are Sierra Leoneans seeking for protection here in Germany but have been frustrated instead of protected. And we have resolved to strike action based on the following reasons:

Every Asylum seeker from Sierra Leone in Deggendorf gets always negative results in the form of :

1. Dublin deportation
2. Rejection of asylum application
3. Asylum application is ‘invalid’

– The next point is that we now stay in a camp for 2 years instead of the initial 6 months, with no schooling, no work permit.

– Very poor accommodation facilities with 8 occupants in a room, with poor hygiene and toilet facilities.

– Very poor quality of food.

– Deportation to Italy with serious torture and no proper arrangements for reinstatement of the immigrants in Italy thereby leaving the immigrants on the street suffering.

– Forceful deportation of pregnant women, children, sick people and sucking mothers.

– No medication for immigrants for certain sickness.
And now established to us that this is a private camp and cannot allow any journalists.

On this basis we have started on 15th December 2017 a close door strike with no schooling and on Saturday 16th December and Sunday 17th December hunger strike and on Monday, we will be going to city council to get clearances to have a peaceful protest accross Deggendorf with continuation of no schooling and hunger strike.
This is to let the whole world know how Germany is treating the immigrants.

Kein Abschiebelager in Regensburg – Kein Abschiebelager anderswo – Demo ab 16 Uhr, Bismarckplatz

Kein Abschiebelager in Regensburg - Kein Abschiebelager anderswo - Demo in Regensburg
Am 26.05.2017
16:00 – 20:00
Bismarkplatz, Regensburg

Im März beschloss die bayerische Staatsregierung, dass in Regensburg ein Transitzentrum entstehen soll. Dieses Zentrum wird ein Lager, in dem Menschen mit sogenannter „geringer Bleibeperspektive“ untergebracht werden. Abseits des Blicks der Öffentlichkeit wird hier über Abschiebungen entschieden, auch nach Ländern wie Afghanistan, deren „sicherer“ Status höchst umstritten ist. Auch müssen dort gewisse Standards, wie zum Beispiel kontinuierlicher Schulunterricht für Kinder, nicht eingehalten werden – Menschenrechte sind de facto ausgehebelt. Die beschriebene Situation in diesen Zentren macht deutlich, dass deren einziger Sinn Abschreckung und Abschiebungen sind: Sie sind Abschiebelager.

Umgesetzt wird der Plan der Landesregierung nun durch die Umfunktionierung des ehemaligen Erstaufnahmelagers, an dessen Stelle das Transitzentrum entsteht. Dessen zukünftige Funktion als Abschiebelager benannte Sozialministerin Müller eindeutig: Der Zweck des Transitzentrums sei es Menschen „zurück[zu]führen, bevor sie bei uns richtig Fuß fassen.“ Verdeutlicht wird dies durch die Aussage des Innenministers Hermann, Regensburg sei durch seine gute Anbindung an den Münchner Flughafen „ein prädestinierter Ort“ dafür.

Daher wollen wir gemeinsam ein Zeichen setzen:

Gegen alle Abschiebungen!
Gegen ein Abschiebelager in Regensburg und anderswo!
Für ein Bleiberecht für alle!

Lasst uns unseren Unmut auf die Straße tragen! Kommt zur Demo am 26.05. um 16:00 Uhr am Bismarckplatz.

Aktionswochen gegen Abschiebelager in Ingolstadt 04.03.2017

Aktionswochen gegen Abschiebelager in Ingostadt

Liebe Interessierte,
wir möchten Euch heute auf die Aktionswochen gegen Abschiebelager in Ingolstadt aufmerksam machen. Es ist uns gelungen, ein vielfältiges und interessantes Programm aus Vorträgen, Konzerten und politischen Aktionen zusammenzustellen. Am Samstag, den 04.03. wird es im Rahmen der Veranstaltungen einen Aktionstag mit Demonstration geben. An diesem Tag lohnt es sich also auch für alle von nah und fern nach Ingolstadt zu reisen und ein Zeichen gegen Ausgrenzung, Entrechtung und Abschiebelager zu setzen!
hier findet ihr unseren Flyer zu den Aktionswochen mit Informationen zum Programm..

Teilt die Veranstaltung und kommt alle zahlreich nach Ingolstadt!

**********************************************************

Mit den Aktionswochen vom 2. – 15. März 2017 möchten wir über das System der Abschiebelager und die Situation der Menschen Vorort informieren und mit euch in Austausch treten.

Seit Herbst 2015 gibt es in Manching/Ingolstadt und Bamberg sogenannte Ankunfts- und Rückführungseinrichtungen (ARE). Bei diesen Einrichtungen handelt es sich um Abschiebelager. Anfangswurden dort nur Menschen aus den Westbalkanstaaten eingewiesen, da ihre Länder zu sicheren Herkunftsstaaten deklariert wurden und ihnen deswegen eine schlechte Bleibeperspektive unterstellt wurde. Viele haben zuvor über Monate bis zu mehreren Jahren in Bayern gelebt. Mit der Begründung der schlechten Bleibeperspektive werden dort seit einiger Zeit auch Geflüchtete aus der Ukraine untergebracht.

Ziel der bayerischen Regierung ist es diese Geflüchteten in Asylschnellverfahren abzulehnen und abzuschieben oder zur „freiwilligen“ ausreise zu drängen.

Erniedrigende und menschenunwürdige Bedingungen sollen die Betroffenen zermürben und ihnen zeigen, dass sie hier nicht erwünscht sind. Bewohner*innen unterliegen einer verschärften Residenzpflicht, werden isoliert, haben kaum Zugang zu Sozial- und Rechtsberatung und sind aufgrund fehlender Öffentlichkeit schutzlos den Behörden ausgeliefert. Kinder dürfen weder eine öffentliche Schule besuchen, noch in den Kindergarten gehen.

Mit den Aktionswochen wollen wir unseren Protest gegen die Isolierung und Entrechtung in den Abschiebelagern auf die Straße tragen. Wir verlangen faire, individuelle Asylverfahren für alle Menschen, egal woher sie kommen! Wir sind für eine konsequente Bekämpfung von Fluchtursachen und gegen die systematische Diskriminierung von Minderheiten und gegen Waffenlieferungen in Krisengebiete, wie zum Beispiel die Ukraine!

Wir verurteilen die zermürbende Abschreckungs- und Abschiebepolitik der Bundesregierung aufs schärfste. Abschiebelager abschaffen! Jetzt!

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.

6th Day Protest March

Illegalisation of our Protest

3:30 pm

Now demonstration of people in solidarity starts at Neupfarrplatz, that will meet us on our way. On this place Non-Citizens were figthing for right to stay from 11th July till 6th of September 2012 and from 15th July till 21st of July 2013.

Later both demonstrations meet. However, we will be spending the night outdoors at Dultplatz, in spite of the freezing temperatures. We had been promised access to an indoor location, that has been retracted because the office of Regensburg’s major graded the march as “illegal action”.

This proceeding shows once again how the world illegalises our lives. Again and again, we have been forced to live in slavery, as third class people. Despite official registration and several cooperation talks, our protest and our struggle for freedom and dignity is illegalised. Of course, our protest is illegal in the eyes of the authorities, because people are motivated to fight for their rights. We demand that our lives matter too. We won’t remain silent any longer. No human being is illegal. Right to stay everywhere.

Saturday, 15th of October Regensburg – Hemau

Five Borders

15th of October, 2016, Hemau
7th day of the Protest March

So today, we are on our way to Nuremberg. We have just crossed five cities. It is as if we have crossed five borders, one after another. From suffering to easiness, some have welcomed us comfortably, others didn’t even want to listen to our voices, having isolated us at the other end of the towns, as it happened in Freising and Moosburg. It is as if history is repeating again and again.

In the past, our ancestors have been slaves, our grandparents, who experienced World War I and II, have been violently forced to fight in the units of the Tirailleurs Sénégalais. They have helped the world to get freed from the invasion of the Nazis, but unluckily they asked for what they were entitled to. They were massacred in mases in the camp of Thiaroye (Senegal) and now it is us today, the grandchildren, who fight for our dignity, our existence, our freedom of movement, and, mainly, for education.

Is it too much to ask that one should be able to learn, if one is able to, is it too much to ask that one should be able to work, if you have the ability and the power, in order to not being dependent on someone, is it too much to ask in the 21st century to struggle for freedom and live, and what is left then from the struggles led by Ghandi or Martin Luther King and all the others. The world isn’t existing since today and it will not stop existing tomorrow. Let’s open our hearts, be in solidarity with each other, listen, don’t be afraid, take it seriously, let us take it serious, because neighbours will always cross each other’s ways, whether they want it or not.

Appeal for refugee community network from Konradsreuth, Bayern

german & french & russian translation below

To all Refugees in Konradsreuth and Hof Districts

For about 2 years now in Frauenhof, we refugees from Ukrain and Cheychenia have been living together as family community in Konradsreuth with the status of asylum applicant refugees. We support one another through social cultural exchange in our daily relationship.

Since then, many more refugees have been transferred here to live in the village of Konradsreuth and in other districts of Hof, therefore we think it is time to widen our network and community.

It is our belief in human dignity that motivates us to propose an active and independent platform of refugee community to advance our unity for fundamental human rights, for freedom and for the well-being of refugees.
