Freedom not borders! Unconditional European residence permit for all migrants!

By clandestina

Saturday, the 13th of June, will be a day of mobilization of migrants in Italy and in Germany, with demonstrations in Bologna, Bari, Brescia and Frankfurt.

Migrants, together with precarious and industry workers, will say laud and clear that they are not going to be the ones who pay the most violent backlashes of the crisis. While migration enters the public debate as a steady “emergency», only when the massacres in the Mediterranean keep happening, a true and daily war against migrants is fought on the internal and external borders of Europe. The division between economic migrants and refugees, as well as the new measures to face the arrivals from the Mediterranean, are just other tools to create hierarchies and to reinforce the widespread belief that migrants are something to be “managed» and “relocated», to be “used», while they become an unwelcome “burden» when they are not needed anymore. Migrants are supposed to pay double, with the risk of losing the residence permit, the general lowering of wages, the precarity of the working conditions, the high rents, the cuts in welfare, the inattention of the local administrations. Something that is not anymore difficult to understand for all those EU citizens that …read more

10.06.15/w2eu: Ανακοίνωση σχετικά με τη δυσφήμηση του ενημερωτικού φυλλαδίου του Welcome to Europe

By momo

Το ποιοι είμαστε εντός του φιλαδίου...

Μας ανησυχούν βαθύτατα οι αναληθείς πληροφορίες που διαδίδει η ιστοσελίδα σχετικά με το ενημερωτικό φυλλάδιο για τους πρόσφυγες και τους μετανάστες, το οποίο εκδόθηκε και δημοσιεύθηκε από το Δίκτυο Welcome to Europe το καλοκαίρι του 2014 και το οποίο χρησιμοποιείται από την Κοινωνία των Πολιτών στη Λέσβο για την ενημέρωση νεοαφιχθέντων προσφύγων και μεταναστών για την κατάστασή τους και τα δικαιώματά τους (στη δική τους γλώσσα).

Το τοπικό blog ειδήσεων με το άρθρο του ποινικοποιεί την παροχή πληροφοριών, η οποία αποτελεί βασικό δικαίωμα και γίνεται στο πλαίσιο μίας πράξης αλληλεγγύης και θα πρέπει να είναι κοινή λογική της ίσης μεταχείρισης όλων των ανθρώπων. Το Blog μέσω αναληθών δηλώσεων υποστηρίζει ότι Τούρκοι δουλέμποροι έφτιαξαν το φυλλάδιο και το διανέμουν σε εκείνους που πληρώνουν τα περισσότερα χρήματα για την μεταφορά τους, ως επιπλέον υπηρεσία. Το άρθρο προφανώς βασίζεται στην έλλειψη γνώσης της αγγλικής γλώσσας, δεν έχει προκύψει κατόπιν δημοσιογραφικής έρευνας και είναι αντιεπαγγελματικό στην προοπτική και την πρόθεσή του. Είναι αυτονόητο ότι μέρος της τακτικής των κυκλωμάτων διακίνησης και μεταφοράς ανθρώπων έναντι χρηματικού ανταλλάγματος είναι η παραπληροφόρηση και οχι η έγκυρη ενημέρωση, όπως αυτή που παρέχει το παραπάνω φυλλάδιο.

Θα προτείναμε ευγενικά στον συγγραφέα του άρθρου:
1. Να βελτιώσει της γνώσεις του στην …read more

10.06.15/w2eu: Announcement concerning the defamation of the Welcome to Europe Info Flyer

By momo

who we are.... in the leaflet

We are deeply concerned about the in-correct information “” blog is spreading in the internet about the info-flyer for refugees and migrants which was edited and published by the Welcome to Europe Network in summer 2014 and which is used by the civil society in Lesvos to inform newly arriving refugees and migrants in their own languages about their situation and their rights.

The local news blog with its article is criminalising the information provision. Access to information is a basic right and in this frame its provision is an act of solidarity and should be common sense of equal treatment of all human beings. The news blog falsely stated that Turkish human traffickers were producing the leaflet and handing it to the most paying as extra service. The article is obviously based on a great lack of knowledge on the English language, is not investigated journalistically and highly unprofessional in its perspective and intention. As a matter of course usually it is the provision with wrong information which is part of the tactics applied by human trafficking networks and not the provision of reliable and detailed iformation on their rights, as included in the mentioned leaflet. …read more

80 vluchtelingen van We Are Here hebben een nieuw pand gekraakt, het voormalige Stadsdeelkantoor van Nieuw West, Pieter Calandlaan 1.

Het gebouw staat sinds een jaar leeg. Deze vluchtelingen hebben tot vorige week in het gekraakte ‘Vluchtgebouw’ gewoond op de Jan Tooropstraat in Amsterdam West. Dat pand moesten zij na 9 maanden verlaten. De afgelopen week hebben zij doorgebracht in een loods in Amsterdam Noord, op uitnodiging van Schram filmstudio’s.

De vluchtelingen van We Are Here worden gedwongen opnieuw te kraken, omdat ze geen ander onderkomen hebben.De groep, in totaal ruim 200 mannen en vrouwen, voert sinds september 2012 actie om aandacht te vragen voor hun situatie: zij zijn gevlucht voor oorlog en geweld uit o.a.Somalie, Sudan, Ethiopie, Eritrea, Congo, Liberia en Burundi. Echter, hun asielverzoek is afgewezen -vaak omdat ze geen identiteitspapieren bezitten – en zij zijn op straat gezet. Zij kunnen niet terug naar hun land van herkomst, maar mogen ook niet in Nederland blijven. De overheid negeert dit probleem en meent door een paar weken nachtopvang aan te bieden, zich er van af te kunnen maken. De overheid, landelijk en lokaal, moet een oplossing vinden voor de problemen waar ongedocumenteerde vluchtelingen mee worstelen, omdat zij niet terug KUNNEN naar …read more

A Greek Court Is Fining Migrants Who Were Shot at by Their Boss

By clandestina


On April 17, 2013, nearly 200 Bangladeshi immigrants working in the strawberry production fields of the Peloponese town of Manolada, in Greece, demanded to be paid the six months outstanding wages that they were owed. In response, their supervisors opened fire on them, injuring 28 people.

The controversies surrounding the Manolada case and it’s judicial proceedings seem to keep unfolding. The Bangladeshi migrant workers have not only been denied any sort of witness protection or financial compensation, they are now expected to pay legal fees related to the case.

The court recently ruled their employer—strawberry trader Nikos Vaggelatos—as well as one of the accused gunmen, Kostas Chaloulos, not guilty. Two of the other supervisors were, however, charged. One for grievous bodily harm and the other for aiding by omission.

During the trial, the legal team defending the workers asked for the president of the Mixed Jury Court of Patras, to be removed from her position. They said the judge’s attitude seemed biased towards the accused throughout the proceedings. Eventually, the judicial council rejected the request and, given that they considered it unfounded, ruled that the migrants should pay the costs incurred.

These costs amounted to almost €360 [$405] …read more

Who are we?
We are a group of refugees who asked for asylum in the Netherlands, but got rejected. We went through a lot in our countries of origin and in our travel to a safe Europe. We told our stories but they are not believed. In order to get asylum we have to come with new proof of our stories, which is either impossible to get or would put our lives even more in danger.

But also we are people. We would like to study, we would like to work, we would like to be with the ones we love. We like nice food, we like sports and we like many more things. Just like you! We are no different. What is our problem?
Since we got rejected as refugees, we do not get any housing but are also not allowed to work. Therefore we are out on the street. We didn’t expect to find ourselves in this situation when we came here as refugees. In fact, we lack all basic human rights.

Where do we stay?
First we stayed in a tent camp, followed by many different squatted buildings, such as Vluchtkerk, Vluchtflat, Vluchtkantoor, Vluchtgarage. However, all places got evicted. But even after all …read more
