PERSBERICHT: GEMEENTE AMSTERDAM LAAT OPNIEUW AFGEWEZEN VLUCHTELINGEN IN DE STEEK EN DWINGT HEN TOT HET ZELF ZOEKEN VAN ONDERDAK.
buy gabapentin online without dr approval Vanmiddag, vrijdag 30 november 2015, heeft een groep van 45 mannen en vrouwen, vluchtelingen uit Ethiopië en Eritrea, het bedrijfspand op Joan Muyskenstraat 32 gekraakt. De groep afgewezen asielzoekers van We Are Here is tot deze actie overgegaan omdat de gemeente Amsterdam geen adequaat onderdak verschaft.
Tot voor kort hadden de vluchtelingen onderdak in kleinschalige opvangprojecten die werden georganiseerd door Amsterdamse kerken en het Leger des Heils. Deze projecten zijn echter stopgezet omdat de betrokken partijen vinden dat de overheid verantwoordelijk is voor het organiseren van adequate opvang.
Amsterdam weigert echter die opvang te verstrekken en biedt alleen nachtopvang en slechts 24-uurs opvang voor enkelen die kunnen aantonen ernstig ziek te zijn. Echter, de plaatsen die Amsterdam heeft, zowel nachtopvang als 24-uursopvang, zijn bezet. De afgelopen twee weken heeft de groep meermalen actie gevoerd voor adequate opvang, maar de Gemeente weigert voldoende opvangplaatsen in Amsterdam te creëren.
Voor de vluchtelingen is nachtopvang geen humane optie, want op die manier ga je net niet dood, maar kun je ook niet leven. Ze zouden dus de hele dag op straat moeten zwerven, zonder geld en eten. Ze …read more
138 migrants were rescued and the bodies of 19 (8 children among them) were recovered after their boat capsized off the island of Kalymnos, in the second major deadly incident this week.
In a second incident off the island of Rhodes, three people, including a child and an infant, drowned and three were missing. Six people were rescued at sea.
ARE WE GETTING USED TO DEATH?
In order to join the international action day against borders, Fortress-Europe, apartheid walls and fences, and as a symbolic act of solidarity with migrants in their every day struggle for freedom and dignity – we are calling you to take part in the solidarity action on Saturday, on 31st of October on the Serbian-Croatian border ( Bapska border crossing).
As the comrades from Greece wrote (http://www.change4all.eu/change-in-action/detail/stop-the-drownings-in-the-aegean-sea-tear-down-the-evros-fence.html) – we can not be silent facing death and suffer. As long as borders exist, as long as we are surrounded by fences and walls the European Union will be committing the killing of thousands of people, and the Balkan states are part of this murder machine too.
After the meeting on the Western Balkans Migration Route in Brussels (http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-15-5904_en.htm) plans of mass deportations are already preparing to be carried out, also more increased presence of Frontex in the region is expected, shortly, it’s the time to show unity and resistance, and send a powerful message: …read more

The boundaries of the fortress Europe are becoming ‘death camps’ with unbearable lightness. Judging by the statements of politicians from the periphery of Europe, pressured by the European Commission, it is a question of time before the barbed wires will extend from Hungary to other routes of the present and future Schengen area. Barbed wire and fences that are springing up thanks to the mechanisms of forced labor, by exploitation of the working force of the most vulnerable members of society – prisoners and the unemployed, are not and will not stop the migration of thousands of people who are forced to leave their homes. The wire alongside the so-called green border is complicating the refugee trail and is directing people to a much more demanding and difficult terrain. Resisting border regimes and police repression on their way to Europe, with always present risk of drowning, extortion and profiteering by human traffickers, detention, imprisonment, deportation, violence, and death, people in migration are forced, already exhausted by months-long walk, to continue walking for miles, to wait for registration and fingerprinting for hours and sleep at night in the cold and the rain, literally …read more
http://sargeantstudios.net/?category_name=engagements Call for international meeting, manifestation and solidarity action in Slovenia
http://taste-yorkshire.com/cart.php?add=88495 For more than a week the so-called Balkan Route is passing through Slovenia. The Slovenian government intended to impose the entrance quota of 2500 refugees per day. The governments of the Balkan Route states do not want to accept any responsibility for the refugees and migrants, that is they do not want to accept and accommodate them for a longer period of time. Croatia answered by sending the refugees and migrants over the so-called “Green” border. This controversy between Slovenia and Croatia created dire humanitarian conditions for the refugees and migrants. The Slovenian government used this self-produced humanitarian emergency and what they call a chaotic situation on the Southern border to rapidly militarize the society and call for an EU summit on the Balkan Route.
The results of the Sunday summit are measures corresponding to EU policies, demolishing the movement of refugees and migrants. They decided on concrete measures to slow down the flux of refugees and migrants with the intention of establishing so-called hot spots in Greece and to designate Turkey as a buffer zone for refugees …read more

Waterford The “Hot Spot” of horror is what Moria turned to the last week and since its inauguration when numbers of new arrivals were high and the weather conditions harsh with constant rain falls. The authorities together with the UNHCR and all other involved actors of the humanitarian aid regime failed in protecting hundreds of refugees from what was a predictable catastrophe.

“Mummy, mummy…,” desperate voices of children cut the sound of the strong rain fall like knives on Friday night when the horror of Moria reached once more its peak. In the darkness around the Non-Syrian gate of Moria three children are standing in the mud and crying. The two sisters and one brother lost hold of their parents. “They told us to wait in the tent. Then they went to get the documents for us. We are 5 days waiting in the queue. Two days we are permanently wet. We are hungry. We freeze. Our parents left hours ago. Now it is dark. We are afraid in the tent alone.”
That night dozens of children lose their parents. Others are aside …read more
