STOPPT Mikl-Leitners rassistisches Asylgesetz – Refugees welcome!

Demo am Freitag, den 6. März, 17Uhr, Westbahnhof

Innenministerin Mikl Leitner hat einen Entwurf für ein neues Asylgesetz in Österreich präsentiert. Statt auf die seit Jahren von protestierenden Refugees und von FlüchtlingsunterstützerInnen vorgebrachten Forderungen einzugehen, plant sie ein ganzes Paket alarmierender Verschlimmerungen:

Ganze Gruppen von Menschen sollen durch ein 10tägigen Asyl-Schnellverfahrens de facto vom Grundrecht auf Asyl ausgeschlossen werden. Das soll gegen Menschen angewendet werden, deren Herkunftsländer pauschal als „sicher“ erklärt werden. Ebenso gegen Personen, die in Österreich strafbare Handlungen begangen haben (sollen), auch wenn sie schon lange in Österreich leben. Und betroffen sind auch diejenigen, denen vorgeworfen wird, sie seien mit falschen Dokumenten eingereist oder würden sich weigern, Fingerabdrücke abzugeben.

Es soll ermöglicht werden, Geflüchtete nach dem ersten negativen Asylbescheid abzuschieben, ohne das Ergebnis des gerichtlichen Klageverfahrens abzuwarten

Abgelehnte Asylsuchende sollen aus der Grundversorgung ausgeschlossen und der sozialen Verelendung preisgegeben werden. Besonders für Frauen und LGBT-Personen bedeutet das eine weitere Verschärfung lebensbedrohender Situationen.

Mehrere führende PolitikerInnen, wie Bundeskanzler Faymann und der Wiener Bürgermeister Häupl, haben signalisiert, dass sie Mikl Leitners Plänen in wesentlichen Punkten zustimmen.

Das geplante neue Asylgesetz zielt einzig und allein darauf ab, Menschen beschleunigt abzulehnen und abzuschieben. Die durch den Staat …read more

Greek government reveals plans for undocumented immigrants

By clandestina

Earlier today some government decisions concerning undocumented immigrants were released. All immigrants being kept in detention centers for more than 6 months will gradually be released. Then, they will be given a paper postponing deportation for a 6-months period. In this period they should leave Greece by themselves. Undocumented immigrants crossing greek borders will no more be arrested, but (as in the past) they will be given a paper saying that they have one month to leave Greece. If they get arrested after this one-month period, they will also be given a paper postponing deportation for 6 more months. Then they will enter an uncertain status, as the immigrants’ situation in Greece had (has) been for many years. Most of the detention centers will not close – perhaps not even Amygdaleza.
So we almost return to the situation as it was 3 years ago. Not exactly. Back then maximum detention was three months, not six, there were seven detention centers less, the nazi party percentage was 0,15%, not 7% and the immigrant population was much bigger – actually during last three years the total population of Greece has decreased, for the first time since the formation of the greek state.

Refugee camp in Dresden attacked by Pegida! The Struggle continues!

By clandestina

On the 28th of February, right after a big antiracist protest march, refugee activists, helped by German supporters, occupied the central square in front of the Frauenkirche in Dresden and set up a protest camp.

During yesterday’s Pegida march around 150 militant neo-Nazis attacked the refugee protest camp.

They were struck back by police.

Cops, however, are certainly not on our side. Comrades who support and guard the protest camp reported constant harassment: the camp is encircled by cops, whoever wants to enter is identified, people who leave the encirclement to go to the toilet are refused to enter again…

This morning the refugees were obliged to remove their tents. They are decided to continue their struggle, though, and declared that they would remain in the square until 25 March.
As for their demands: http://feb28.net/appeal_en.html (English)

Report on Refugee’s Meeting Held in Vockerode, Lutherstadt Wittenberg on 26.02.2015

By Karawane Wittenberg

We unified together with our supporters in Vockerode to discuss relevant matters concerning how the foreign offices contribute in destroying our perspectives in the name of “German Law”. How they abused and discriminate us with the “Duldung” pretext for so many years. How they aimed to persecute, destroy and deport us back without perspectives and the arbitrary decisions practiced
