MAY 1st IS OUR PUBLIC HOLIDAY OF RESISTANCE

By freedomnotfrontex

1. Mai Turgay Ulu

englisch & german bellow

1 MAYIS MÜCADELE GÜNÜMÜZ
1856 yılında Avustralya’da işçiler, günlük çalışma saatlerinin 8 saate düşürülmesi için eylemler yaptılar. Bir günlük iş bırakma eylemi yaptılar. Eyleme katılım büyük oldu.
1886 yılında Amerikan Emek Federasyonu, günlük 8 saatlik çalışma süresinin 1 Mayıs 1886 yılı itibariyle yasalaştırılması önerisini kabul etti. Chicago’da siyah, beyaz tüm renkten işçiler, çalışma saatlerinin düşürülmesi talebiyle yürüyüşe geçtiler. O zamanlar Luizvil meydanı siyahlara kapalıydı. İşçiler birleşerek tüm bu yasakları kırdılar.
Haymerket’te yapılan eyleme polis saldırdı. Çatışmalar yaşandı. Direnişe önderlik eden 4 işçi idam edilerek öldürüldüler. İşçi önderlerinden Albert Persons, af dilemesi karşılığında serbest bırakılması önerisini kabul etmedi. Burjuvazi karşısında eğilmedi.
İşçilerin ve emekçilerin direnerek kazandıkları 1 Mayıs, İkinci Enternasyonal’e bir Fransız işçinin yaptığı öneriyle dünya emekçilerinin birlik, dayanışma ve mücadele günü olarak yüzyıllardan beri anılmaya devam ediyor.
Günümüzde de işçiler sömürülüyor. Dünyada azınlık bir nüfusu oluşturan burjuvazi lüks bir hayat yaşarken, milyonlarca işçi, işsiz ve mülteciler insanca yaşam koşullarından uzak bir şekilde yaşıyorlar.
İşçilerin ve emekçilerin ürettikleri değerlerle silah ticareti yapıyorlar. Haksız savaşlarda gene dünyanın yoksulları öldürülüyor. Enerji kaynaklarını ele geçirmek için yerli halklar mülteci ve göçmen olmaya zorlanıyor. Mülteciler, saatte 1 euroluk işlerde çalıştırılarak sömürülüyorlar. Resedenspflich, lager ve abschubung uygulamalarıyla mülteciler tam bir izolasyon hayatı yaşamaya mahkum ediliyor. Ev kiralarına her ay …read more

Campaign to Break Deportation Culture and Criminalization of Refugees in Germany and Europe

By palme43

embassy occupation

-In Solidarity with Refugee Community Network

Break Deportation Culture – Deportation is criminal and we fight to stop it!

European asylum structures and processes ensure that every refugee is criminalized (for some, even before arriving in Europe). This criminalization is promptly and meticulously processed, and is manifested in various forms of societal and institutional discrimination and racism that ends with deportation. Deportation is criminal. It is criminal not only because of the obvious denial of the deportee’s right to freedom of movement and the right to decide his or abode, but also because the physical and financial cost as well as the long-lasting psychological effects are not reckoned with and provided for by the deportation machinery and its advocates. In the worst cases, some die in the process of being deported while others are either dumped in countries where their lives are in danger or where they are actually killed by the forces they initially fled from. For some years now, the German authorities have been dubiously collaborating with foreign Embassies like the Nigerian Embassy in Berlin to issue Travel certificates to nationals from other African countries that are then deported to Nigeria with no guarantee of safety whatsoever. Although this scandal …read more

Pressekonferenz Refugee Club Impulse

By freedomnotfrontex

Refugee Club Impulse

Der Refugee Club Impulse ist ein Zusammenschluss von Geflüchteten und nicht Geflüchteten Kunstschaffenden, der kulturelle Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten von Geflüchteten selbst, kollektiv und basisdemokratisch organisiert und realisiert werden. Unsere Grundlage ist das gemeinsam erarbeitete Manifest: Nobody gives us a Voice – we take it!

Der Refugee Club Impulse hat ein Koordinationskomitee das paritätisch von Geflüchteten und nicht Geflüchteten Kulturschaffenden und Akteuren aus der ‘Flüchtlingsarbeit’ besetzt wird.

Mit unserer ersten Produktion ‘Do Butterflies have Borders?’ hatten wir das Ziel, den Geflüchteten Impulse zu geben um gegen die ‘Dead Time’ oder Depressionen vorzugehen, die viele Geflüchteten in den Heimen ergreift.

Unsere zweite Produktion ‘Letters Home’ versuchte das Forscher/Beforschter – Verhältnis umzudrehen und den Blick und die Beobachtungen von Geflüchteten auf die deutsche Gesellschaft und ihr Verhältnis zu der Fremde auf die Bühne zu bringen.

Unser Drittes Projekt zielte darauf ab, die Isolation der Geflüchteten in den Heimen zu durchbrechen und die Sichtbarkeit der Geflüchteten zu erhöhen.

Also ist unser Projekt insofern und auf diese Weise politisch. Unser Beitrag ist es diese Ziele durch kulturelle und künstlerische Mittel zu erreichen. Unsere Arbeit ist politisch aber nicht parteilich. Das soll heißen: wir sehen es nicht als unsere Aufgabe einzugreifen und uns …read more

El calvario de Abdelatif

By frontera sur http://blogs.elpais.com/migrados/2016/04/la-historia-de-abdelatif.html

En este vídeo, Abdelatif relata el calvario por el que ha pasado desde su llegada a España, pero se deja muchas cosas en el tintero…

Abdelatif es un marroquí nacido en Alhucemas hace unos 40 años. Lleva uno y medio en Melilla. Es como un padre para los chavales que sobreviven en el exterior del Centro de Estancia Temporal de Inmigrantes (CETI) de la ciudad, tanto que a su chabola la llaman La casa del Pueblo y es el lugar de encuentro de muchos de ellos.

Durante cerca de 15 años ha trabajado en España sin contrato y sin papeles pero lo expulsaron tras denunciar a su empresario (policía de alto rango). Este viernes, por si no fuera sufciente, ha sido detenido en las afueras del CETI de Melilla por unos agentes de la Policía Nacional. No ha trascendido la razón de su detención.

Abdelatif pretende que “se haga justicia” con él, ¿Justicia? ¿En España? Con esa barba, esas gafas, su edad… Es difícil empezar una campaña mediática de ayuda para que recupere su situación anterior ¡No da la imagen!… Y eso es muy …read more

Redada de Menores no acompañados en Melilla.

By frontera sur Los menores no acompañados que intentan sobrevivir en las calles de Melilla tras pasar la frontera, y los que escapan del centro de menores, intentan con carácter general marchar de la ciudad en un Ferry.
Lo hacen porque desconfían absolutamente de un sistema de protección que los considera “enemigos” o por lo menos “molestos”
El “Sistema” les persigue también en la calle. Los niños sufren un continuo acoso policial y criminalización por parte de los responsables políticos,determinados medios de comunicación y bandas ciudadanas.
Como se puede ver en el vídeo: las patadas, porrazos, tirones de pelo… forman parte del procedimiento de limpieza de menores de las calles de la ciudad

— Schulstreik Berlin (@SchulstreikBln) 16. April 2016

Seit über einem Jahr ist der Rassismus in der Offensive.

Eine rechte Bewegung wächst explosiv. Die rassistische AfD fordert den Schießbefehl auf Geflüchtete und bekommt bei Landtagswahlen bis zu 24%! Zehntausende gehen für fremdenfeindliche Forderungen auf die Straße. Rassistische Gewalttaten sind 7 mal so hoch wie noch vor 2 Jahren. Während die Heime brennen und manch einer applaudiert, bewaffnen sich sogenannte „Bürgerwehren“ und üben Gewalt gegen alle aus, die nicht in ihr rechtes Weltbild passen.

Als Reaktion auf den rassistischen Mob passen sich Regierung und Parteien nach rechts an.

Die Lage der Betroffenen scheint für niemanden mehr eine Rolle zu spielen.
Kaum jemand redet mehr über die menschenunwürdigen Lebensbedingungen in den Lagern, über Arbeitsverbot und Bildungszugang. Überall geht es nur darum die Zahl der ankommenden Menschen zu verringern, Länder für sicher zu erklären, damit dorthin wieder abgeschoben werden kann. Die Bundeswehr führt wieder Krieg, gleichzeitig beginnen Massenabschiebungen nach Afghanistan. Anstatt Menschen auf der Flucht vor dem …read more

Report: Infomobile Greece 2015

By riva

Nobody could have foreseen how quickly the situation in the Aegean changed in 2015, due to unpredictable migration movements. More than 7.000 people arrived on the Greek island of Lesvos on a single day in late October 2015 and more than 56.000 people arrived on the island in the last week of October. When we stood on the beaches of northern Lesvos and experienced how one boat after another arrived there, while volunteers from all over Europe welcomed the newly arrived, one could have thought that this border had long been overrun and become a fact of the past. But, at the same time, we became witnesses of the loss of hundreds of people who drowned in the Aegean Sea. Even the mayor of Mytilene demanded ferries that would transport people from Turkey to Greece so long as no safe paths to Europe existed. 2015 was an incredible year. Since we have followed the refugee situation in the Aegean for a long time, we detected major developments here: in 2015 and still today, more and more women and children, as well as old people, those injured through war, and the sick were now travelling. And while the first groups of …read more

European Borders update 15.4.2016. Greece starts rejecting people as Turkey labeled ‘safe third country’

By zigacina

TURKEY:

Up to 30.000 refugees started heading to Turkey during the last 48 hours, Spiegel Online reports based on the information provided by the volunteers. This follows several attacks by IS at refugee camps in Northern Syria. However, Turkey refuses to let them to cross the border. As already known, Turkey is building a 911km long cement wall along the border which is said to resist missile attacks. According to Human Rights Watch, one third of it has been finished.

GREECE:

IMPORTANT – today we came into possession of a document issued by the Greek authorities (Regional Asylum Office of Lesvos) stating the inadmissibility for international protection to an individual’s claim based on presumption of Turkey as a Safe Third Country. If this continues as a practice, the principle of non-refoulement mentioned in the EU-Turkey agreement will be most certainly breached. The document states:

„(…) the application that she lodged is rejected as inadmissible, because Turkey is considered to be a safe third country for her.
Furthermore, I informed the applicant with the assistance of the interpreter that he has the right to appeal this decision before the Appeals Committees within 5 calendar days starting tomorrow and that the appeal has automatic suspensive …read more

Idomeni Petition: Stop killing us slowly with Skype asylum applications

By admin

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION

This is a petition made by the people in Idomeni camp. They are forced by Greece government to apply for asylum through a skype call. They have to call a skype number, which is never available. they write:

n Idomeni camp, living in tents in the mud, rain and sun for over forty days, life is becoming a normal hell, frustrations are rising as we lose hope.

Our emotions cycle between apathy, frustration and decreasing hope as our lives are reduced to a routine of sleeping and waiting. Waiting in line for food, for tea, and to charge our phones, and waiting on hold for a Skype call that is never picked up.

Our lives are stuck in limbo.

And even though you know we are here, you force your eyes to look away.

The current system for us to apply for asylum or relocation – to continue our lives beyond camps in Greece – can only begin with an appointment made by a Skype call with very limited capacity.

See the following link for more info
