By Karawane Wittenberg

The German government has been using the increased number of refugees applicant as a pretext to justify the introduction of strict measure on the Asylum and Residence law.

Rep. of Macedonia erects fence, borders closed

By clandestina

Tension has gripped the neutral zone between Greece and Rep. of Macedonia since yesterday, as the refugees and migrants there have been informed that only citizens of Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq will be entitled to pass freely from now on.

This morning about 100 Iranians were near the neutral zone and begged to be allowed to cross the border, resulting in the Macedonian authorities closing the border shortly after 8:00 am.

Croatian Minister of Interior Ranko Ostojić confirmed on Thursday, November 19, 2015 that Croatia is closing its borders for economic migrants. Refugees from Iraq, Syria, Palestine and Afghanistan will still be accepted and registered before they continue their journey to Slovenia and further on to their final destination.

This decision comes as a chain reaction since the same measure was implemented last night and early this morning by Serbia and Macedonia. Slovenia has also closed its borders for economic migrants and already tried to send 162 people back to Croatia, all of them coming from countries that are not considered war zones (Morocco, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Liberia). Croatia denied the request so those migrants are still in Slovenia.

Rep. of Macedonia has started to place barbed wire along the border with Greece …read more

Vandaag heeft een groep sympathisanten van vluchtelingencollectief We Are Here een voormalig kantoorgebouw aan de Keienbergweg 8 in Amsterdam Zuidoost bezet. Zij hebben We Are Here uitgenodigd om het pand in gebruik te nemen als noodopvang zodat zij hun strijd voor sociale en politieke rechten voort kunnen zetten.

We Are Here is een collectief van vluchtelingen in limbo wiens verzoek om asiel in Nederland is afgewezen maar die niet kunnen terugkeren naar hun land van herkomst. Al drie jaar protesteert We Are Here tegen de onmenselijke situatie waarin zij verkeren en roepen op tot erkenning van de rechten van vluchtelingen in limbo.

De groep vluchtelingen verbleef eerder in de ‘Vluchtbank’, een kantoorpand aan Zekeringstraat nabij Amsterdam Sloterdijk. De eigenaar, Rabobank Pensioenfonds wilde niet met de groep onderhandelen over verblijf en deed meteen aangifte. Vandaag heeft de groep het pand, zoals overeengekomen met de advocaat, verlaten. Het vandaag bezette pand aan de Keienbergweg staat al lange tijd leeg. Het gebouw was lange tijd in gebruik door een bedrijf dat schroeven produceert en dat begin vorig jaar naar Almere verhuisde. Met deze bezetting is We Are Here weer …read more
