OPROEP : BUDDY’S GEZOCHT

Wij Zijn Hier – Vluchtgarage zoekt buddy’s/sociaal juridische ondersteuners. We zijn in oktober 2014 met dit project begonnen en hebben toen 20 buddy’s geworven. Dit loopt goed en we willen nu graag meer vluchtelingen in de Vluchtgarage de kans bieden om een buddy te krijgen. Wat doet een buddy? Je gaat een of meerdere mensen individueel in hun procedure voor verblijfsrecht ondersteunen. Bijvoorbeeld door mee te gaan naar instanties, naar de advocaat, te helpen bij het verzamelen van documenten en het bieden van morele steun. Daarnaast kan je ook helpen bij het verkrijgen van toegang tot medische hulp als dit nodig is. En je kunt een luisterend oor aan iemand bieden of af en toe iets gezelligs ondernemen.

De vluchtelingen van Wij Zijn Hier in de Vluchtgarage hebben allemaal een bewogen geschiedenis. Ze hebben asiel aangevraagd, zijn afgewezen en aan de straat overgeleverd. Velen hebben daarna gezworven, soms maanden in detentie gezeten en zijn daarna weer geklinkerd (op straat gezet), omdat ze niet kunnen worden uitgezet. Sommigen zijn twee jaar in Nederland, anderen vijf, zeven jaar of meer. Uiteindelijk zijn ze bij Wij Zijn Hier in de Vluchtgarage terecht gekomen. Waar men er in ieder geval niet meer helemaal alleen voor …read more

Brief der Refugees Initiative Schwäbisch Gmünd an den Ministerpräsidenten Winfried Kretschmann

By azadi

Betreff: Anhaltende repressive Strafverfolgung wegen zivilen Ungehorsams gegen die sog. „Residenzpflicht“
Brief zum Download

Herr Ministerpräsident…
Wir sind Flüchtlinge und politische Aktivisten aus verschiedenen Ländern (Nigeria, Kamerun, Afghanistan) und werden seit mehreren Jahren genötigt, im Isolationslager Schwäbisch Gmünd zu leben – zumindest so lange unsere Asylverfahren noch beim BAMF Karlsruhe „bearbeitet“ werden.

Wir möchten Sie hiermit über unsere bald anzutretenden Haftstrafen informieren. Die Staatsanwaltschaft Ellwangen (Strafvollstreckungs- und Gnadenabteilung) hat uns diese Erzwingungshaftstrafe – trotz der angeblich nicht mehr geltenden „Residenzpflicht“ – nach Gerichtsentscheid durch das Amtsgericht Schwäbisch Gmünd auferlegt.

Some insight of what is happening in Greece

By clandestina

The following was written on December 2013:Police stations throughout the country have turned into ‘warehouses for human souls’, the conditions have been described as tragic, and as violating both international rules and Greek laws. The E.U. has always offered help, but the Greek State has not been willing to fully exploit it. Now the country needs to make the most of the 230 million Euros the E.U. is offering. It would be ‘desirable’ that this money be used to create modern hosting facilities, with distinctive places for criminals and the undocumented, regular access to a courtyard, natural lighting, proper food and regular medical checks. In a nowadays unacceptable status, health and safety regulations are not respected, and we often have unacceptable and arbitrary police behavior. This is exactly what is expected to happen when the State itself stacks human souls for a long time in inappropriate places, without any interest to satisfy the minimum human needs“. Is this part of the proposals on the “issue of immigration” of a progressive Greek political party? No, the above words were spoken on December 12, 2013, by the President of the Panhellenic Federation of Police Officers in the 12th National Roundtable Against …read more

Avramopoulos remains E.U. Migration Commissioner

By clandestina

Prokopis Pavlopoulos was elected as the new President of Greece, despite rumors that Syriza would propose Dimitris Avramopoulos for president. Pavlopoulos was Minister of the Interior and Public Order during December 2008 riots in Greece.
Dimitris Avramopoulos remains E.U. Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Commissioner. His priorities are (E.U. site):

  • Improving border control by boosting the effectiveness of the border agency Frontex and by pooling resources from EU countries, while facilitating access for those who have a legitimate interest in entering the EU.
  • Promoting a new European policy on regular migration to help the EU address skill shortages inter alia by reviewing the ‘Blue Card’ legislation.
  • Making sure the common European asylum system is fully implemented, while developing a strategy to improve the response to emergency situations, with a focus on solidarity and cooperation with non-EU countries.
  • Dealing with irregular migration, including by ensuring smooth return, in cooperation with non-EU Member States.

Greek government will close Amygdaleza in 100 days…

By clandestina

Alternate Civil Protection Minister Yiannis Panousis said on Monday that the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) government is closing the controversial migrant detention center at Amygdalezi in about 100 days. The statement was made following a meeting between mr. Panousis and Alternate Migrant Policy Minister Tasia Christodoulopoulou.

The government is planning to speed up the opening of three new hospitality centers in the Attica region so that migrants can be hosted in humane living conditions soon, especially after the suicide of a 28-year-old Pakistani inmate of Amygdaleza who prefered death to the conditions at the camp. Panousis said that the new centers will operate as “probation” homes. A committee will examine the files of those held at Amygdaleza to determine whether they are unaccompanied minors, sick people, asylum seekers or other categories in order to determine where to place them.

Panousis said that Amygdaleza would not be turned into an open hospitality center because it also houses the Police Academy. Clearer plans for the future of Amygdaleza and Greek migration policy is to be announced on Tuesday by the Ministry of Interior.

Nothing was mentioned about the other detention centers, spread throughout Greece.
