Open Plenum – DEMONSTRATION AGAINST DEPORTATION TREATIES | 09.07. in Berlin
Due to the EU-Turkey deal the way for refugees via Turkey towards Europe is blocked. Turkey receives six billion Euros, to shut down the borders and to keep refugees in camps under conditions of forced labor. Now De Maizère and Merkel propose a very similar deal to several states of Northern Africa. With some the EU already put in practice deportation, police and military treaties. With the “Khartoum-Process” which has begun in the autumn of 2014 asylum seekers from countries such as Sudan, Libya, Egypt and Tunis are supposed to be deported more easily and camps and deportation prisons are supposed to be established. Also with Afghanistan such a treaty shall be bargained.
The strategy of the EU is clear: Refugees shall not even reach the outer borders of the EU, but shall be detained at the beginning of their flight, but latest in Northern Africa and Turkey. Thereby the EU and the German government also put into practice the demands by the right wing populist AfD for the deportation of “illegal” refugees and securing the German borders.
