14 migrants killed by train while walking on tracks in Rep. of Macedonia

By clandestina

Source: http://www.theguardian.com

Fourteen migrants believed to be from Afghanistan and Somalia have been hit by a train and killed while walking along railway tracks in Macedonia, police said on Friday.

The migrants, who were part of a group of between 30 and 40 people, were struck by a passenger train north of Veles, in central Macedonia, at around 8.30pm on Thursday. The express service had been travelling from Thessaloniki, in northern Greece, to the Serbian capital, Belgrade.

Migrants and refugees using the overland route from Greece to western Europe often walk on railway lines to guide them along their way and evade police. It is fraught with danger but considered a safer route than crossing from Libya to Italy via the Mediterranean, where more than 1,300 migrants are believed to have drowned in the past three weeks.

It is believed to be the highest death toll for such an accident in Macedonia.

The migrants had been heading north near the village of Rajko Zinzifov, where the tracks pass through a narrow gorge with the Vardar river on the right and steep rocky slopes to the left. The authorities said those who survived did so by clambering up the slope or clinging …read more

AKKOORD BBB LOST NIETS OP

By roeben

11080020_952286271471603_3996392489397196822_o

P e r s b e r i c h t :

Akkoord BBB lost niets op.

Het akkoord dat door VVD en PvdA is bereikt is een typisch product van partijen die de ogen sluiten voor de realiteit van de asielpraktijk. Veel afgewezen asielzoekers kúnnen niet terugkeren, bijvoorbeeld omdat ambassades van de landen waar naar terug moeten, niet meewerken. Of omdat het oorlog is waarvoor asielzoekers zijn gevlucht, of omdat ze geen papieren hebben. Dit is het ‘asielgat’ waarvoor de actiegroep We Are Here al 2,5 jaar aandacht vraagt, omdat mensen worden afgewezen maar niet terug kunnen.

De voorgestelde ‘sobere’ en kort durende opvang lost deze problematiek niet op. Roepen dat er ‘een strenger terugkeerbeleid moet komen’ is verkiezingsretoriek, want in de praktijk niet uit te voeren, naar al jaren blijkt. Bovendien is de uitspraak van de Europese Commissie voor Sociale Rechten heel helder dat er geen voorwaarden, zoals tekenen voor terugkeer, mogen worden gesteld aan opvang.

Het is niet zo dat afgewezen asielzoekers ook echt uitgeprocedeerd zijn. Van de 200 vluchtelingen van We Are Here zijn er in de afgelopen tijd ruim veertig mensen in geslaagd alsnog een verblijfsvergunning te verkrijgen en heeft eenzelfde aantal een herhaald asielverzoek ingediend. …read more

illegaal, uitgeprocedeerd, ongedocumenteerd, gelukszoekers en asielzoekers… Hoeveel namen hebben we wel niet gekregen?
We zijn vluchtelingen en wij zijn hier!

Wij zijn hier niet voor een koelkast of voor een auto of omdat we het hier zo leuk vinden. Als ons land veilig zou zijn, dan zouden we daar zijn. Als we daar konden studeren en werken! Als we zelf konden kiezen om te trouwen en een gezin te stichten… Als we niet de kans zouden hebben om opgesloten te worden… Als we veilig zouden kunnen leven dan hadden we niet alles achtergelaten. Zouden we al onze familie, vrienden en kennissen achtergelaten hebben voor geld? Een land dat we nog niet kenden? Een land duizenden kilometers van ons land vandaan?

“Uitgeprocedeerd asielzoekers moeten het land verlaten!” wordt er geroepen. Makkelijker gezegd dan gedaan! Maar in het praktijk is het bijna onmogelijk. Je wilt ons terug naar een land sturen waar de overheid voor waarschuwt, een land dat niet geschikt is voor vakantiegangers. Voor ons is het blijkbaar wel goed genoeg? Wij kunnen en durven niet terug te gaan! We kunnen ook niet meer naar andere landen om asiel aan te vragen vanwege de Europese verdragen! Nee …read more

IOM: The total number of deaths this year “could well top 30,000″

By clandestina

The International Organization for Migration said the 2015 rate of migrant deaths in the Mediterranean is much higher than last year, when a total of 3,279 migrants died. That, in turn, was much higher than in 2013, when around 700 died, IOM said.

So far this year, 1,776 have died, according to the U.N. refugee agency, which also estimates that 219,000 people made the crossing last year. The deaths in 2015 so far are 30 times higher than the same period last year.

IOM spokesman Joel Millman told reporters in Geneva: “The 2015 death toll now is more than 30 times last year’s total at this date… when just 56 deaths of migrants had been reported on the Mediterranean.

The total number of deaths this year “could well top 30,000,” said Joel Millman. “We just want to make sure people understand how much more … rapid these deaths have been coming this year than last year.”

UNHCR: number of fatalities in Saturday’s boat tragedy over 800

By clandestina

UNHCR has now interviewed most of the survivors of Saturday’s boat tragedy in the Mediterranean. According to the survivors, their boat departed from Tripoli in Libya on Saturday morning with some 850 people on board, including many children. Among those on board were some 350 Eritreans, as well as people from Syria, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Mali, Senegal, Gambia, Ivory Coast and Ethiopia.

Only 28 people are known to have survived the shipwreck, including a young man from Bangladesh who was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Catania, Sicily, on Sunday, and 27 people who were disembarked later by the Italian Coast Guard in Catania. From available information and the various accounts we’ve had, UNHCR now believes the number of fatalities to have been over 800, making this the deadliest incident in the Mediterranean we have ever recorded.

10 points of institutional racism

By clandestina

Here are the 10 points put forward by the European Commission and backed by EU foreign and interior ministers at a meeting in Luxembourg:

  1. The EU will reinforce the EU’s maritime patrolling operations in the Mediterranean, called Triton and Poseidon, by giving them more money and equipment. The EU will also extend their scope to patrol a wider area of sea.
  2. The bloc will make a systematic effort to capture and destroy vessels used by the people smugglers, using the EU’s counter-piracy “Atalanta” operation off Somalia as a model. EU officials said it would be a combined civilian and military operation but gave no more details.
  3. The EU’s law enforcement, border control, asylum and prosecutors’ agencies will meet regularly and work closely to gather information on how the smugglers operate, to trace their funds and help investigate them.
  4. The European Union’s asylum support office will to deploy teams in Italy and Greece for joint processing of asylum applications.
  5. EU governments will fingerprint all migrants.
  6. The EU will consider options for an “emergency relocation mechanism” for migrants.
  7. The European Commission will launch a voluntary pilot project on resettling refugees across the EU
  8. The EU will establish a new return programme for rapid return of “irregular” migrants co-ordinated by EU …read more
