[Ellwangen] Polizeieinsatz in Ellwangen – Letztes Verfahren gegen Geflüchteten eingestellt.

published by Refugees4Refugees: Polizeieinsatz in Ellwangen ! Letztes Verfahren gegen Geflüchteten eingestellt:

Bild ElwangenIn den frühen Morgenstunden des 3. Mai 2018 hatten etwa fünfhundert Polizisten in Kampfausrüstung die afrikanischen BewohnerInnen im Geflüchtetenlager Ellwangen überfallen und dabei mehrere Menschen verletzt. Einige der afrikanischen Geflüchteten wurden in Untersuchungshaft genommen. Innerhalb weniger Wochen erhielten etwa zwanzig Geflüchtete einen Strafbefehl von bis zu neunzig Tagessätzen, einige wurden sehr schnell zu Gefängnisstrafen bis zu sechs Monaten verurteilt.

Einige Geflüchtete akzeptierten die Strafbefehle nicht und legten Widerspruch ein. Alle mit Erfolg. In der zweiten Februarwoche 2020 wurde ohne Begründung das letzte Verfahren eingestellt. Zuvor waren zwei Verfahren im Rahmen des Jugendstrafrechts ohne Verhandlung eingestellt worden (Diversion). Ein Verfahren wurde wegen einer – inzwischen aufgehobenen – Abschiebeanordnung eingestellt. Für die erste Verfahrenseinstellung im Januar 2019 war noch eine Verhandlung beim Amtsgericht Ellwangen notwendig gewesen.

Hintergrund der Verfahrenseinstellungen und damit der Rücknahme der Strafbefehle ist die fehlende Rechtsgrundlage für den Polizeiüberfall. Im März 2019 äußerte selbst Amtsgerichtsdirektor  öffentlich Zweifel an der Rechtmäßigkeit des Polizeieinsatzes. Er forderte die Staatsanwaltschaft zu Nacharbeit und Belegung der Rechtsgrundlage auf. Das ist dieser offensichtlich nicht gelungen. Die Verfahren mussten eingestellt werden.

Beim Amtsgericht Stuttgart ist die Klage eines Geflüchteten gegen den Polizeieinsatz anhängig. Seit bald eineinhalb Jahren schweigt das Amtsgericht Stuttgart dazu. Will es warten, bis sich die Öffentlichkeit nicht mehr daran erinnert, wie der Polizeiüberfall von den meisten Medien und vielen Politikern einschließlich Winfried Kretschmann bejubelt wurde?

Wir fordern die Aufhebung aller Urteile im Zusammenhang mit dem Polizeiüberfall am 3. Mai 2018 und eine Entschädigung der verurteilten Geflüchteten. Dies wäre jenseits der wohlfeilen Reden zu Hanau eine konkrete Maßnahme gegen den Rassismus in dieser Gesellschaft.

[Lesvos] A Retrospective on January 2020 by No Border Kitchen Lesvos

We share a text from No Border Kitchen Lesbos:

Greece: A Retrospective on January 2020 by No Border Kitchen Lesvos (from Stop War on Migrants)

Just one month has passed in the new year and it already casts a grim shadow over the months yet to come. Blow after blow, new atrocities occur, and the government issues one fascist decision after another. Public outcry is absent.

Still, almost every day people set out on the dangerous journey across the straits between Turkey and Europe. Forced by a system that criminalizes and negatively stigmatizes migration, people unsafely have to board boats and leave everything behind, in the hope of a better, normal life – and for the EU (and within it the Greek government) no effort seems too big or too expensive to crush said people, no matter the cost.
The numerous shipwrecks in this month alone shows yet again how dangerous the crossing is. The Turkish coast guard rammed a rubber dinghy, 4 people drowned, one person went missing – and the excuse of missing safety precautions on board is accepted without comment. A fiber boat broke, 11 people died, of whom 8 were children – but the outcry is absent.

Driven in desperation by a dehumanizing and exclusionary system, a man finds himself during the first days of January in prison. He is locked away in solitary confinement, out of sight. He is a man with known psychological problems and he is left alone. Nobody will take responsibility for him. Death appears to him as the only way out of this hell.
In response to this, approximately 150 people took to the streets to protest against Moria Camp and the conditions in its prison. In a public statement (in several languages), the violent methods, which are de facto torture, were criticized, and the release of all prisoners demanded, as well as the closure of Moria camp and freedom of movement for all.
Towards the end of the month around 300 women protested in the streets of Mytilene with slogans such as “we want to be free, we want to be human”. They criticized the horrible living conditions in Moria camp and the ongoing violence. Meanwhile, another hundred women were prevented from participating in the protest and were blocked at the streets entering Mytilene. More than ten non-refugee women that attended the demonstration were removed and taken to the police station. The police were of the opinion that it was they who organized the rally, based on no evidence and only prejudice, the racial prejudice that the refugee community were unable to organise the demonstration themselves, and that it must have been done for them.
Women have to live under constant fear of assaults and rape. Medical help for pregnant women is barely existent. General medical support is scarce. Children grow up in a hostile environment. They are denied their childhood. But the outcry is absent.

Over 20,000 people are currently stuck in and around Moria camp, having to call it their home. Basic needs are not even close to being met. The ideal environment for violence has resulted in several attacks. Already more than 10 people have been injured and hospitalized since the start of the year. Among those, two men were killed. Some no longer dare to stay in the camp and see themselves forced to endure the cold winter nights in public places. But the outcry is absent.

On January 22nd, with the slogan: “we want our islands back!”, thousands of Greek civilians went on strike and protested the government’s refugee policy. The general strike was supported by the broad public, and a poster with their inflammatory demands could be seen in countless shops and stores of Mytilene, resulting in the largest protest in the history of Lesvos. Thus, domestic politics evaporates, and the belief that those who have newly arrived are to blame for the old, structural problems of the country spreads.
This is a perfect example of the recently formed government confirming its desire to show hardness and “strength” by implementing xenophobic policy. Championing the ideal of “out of sight, out of mind”, the first closed camp is already being built on the island of Samos, afar from any civilization. Men, women and children are to be imprisoned there on a general basis, their only “crime”: they came to Europe. They shall be imprisoned for 25 days. Within this time, it is supposed to be decided who is allowed to stay and who will be deported. The new law, however, provides for numerous possibilities to extend detention – up to 18 months if the asylum application is rejected. In addition to this, the time limits for appeals has been shortened, and any appeal must be submitted by a lawyer. This gives rise to the fear that under these circumstances many will not find a representative in time to appeal against a negative verdict.
But the government cannot wait for the completion of the closed camps to achieve their goal. Thus, on the last weekend of January, 55 people, most of them families, were locked up in a wing of the prison on Kos island. EU law ubiquitously requires a case-by-case assessment of whether there is a reason for imprisonment, and the Greek government flagrantly shows a clear disregard for such legal principle. If even legal principles are so publicly ignored, how are we to believe that any moral or ethical principles, such as a basic human right such as migration, will ever be followed?
Help and support will never be close at hand. The dehumanization continues. Imprisonment of the innocent, even children, is legitimized by our xenophobic system. But the outcry is absent.

The closed camps are intended to accelerate and intensify deportations. By the end of 2020, the government wants to deport 10,000 refugees to Turkey – five times greater than the total number of deportations since the EU-Turkey deal was made. So far, in accordance with former practice, many deportations have been prevented (or at least delayed) with the argument that the horrific conditions in Turkey classify a return as unsafe. However, the Greek government has installed a new judiciary for decisions in regards to deportation, and hopes they will decide differently. But the outcry is absent.

The European Union continues to fully support and implement the entire system. They don’t only demand more “effective (frequent)” deportation but also demand the doubling of EASO (European Asylum Support Office) staff officials to carry out the heinous act. It is not the only staff increase. The cruel, so-called “defenses” continue. The government announced to have 1200 more border police officers in the coming months. Already 400 jobs are advertised for the borders at the river Evros, and 800 are to be added on the Aegean islands.
Now they also want to install a floating dam system on the water. How exactly this is supposed to keep boats away is unclear to everyone. Considering that Lesvos is roughly 70km long, the 2.7km long barrier with blinking lights does not invoke an effective approach to the “issue”. The half a million-Euro project seems even more senseless when one takes in to account that people who are stopped by the barrier have already reached Greek territorial waters, and would therefore have to be rescued and taken to Greek soil under maritime law. But the outcry is absent.

As well as this, Stage 2 was closed on the 31st January. Stage 2 was the short-term transit camp to ensure people who land on the northern coast can access safety and receive medical aid and shelter. Over half of the total arrivals on Lesvos are on the northern shore. With closing Stage 2, people arriving will be left waiting for hours on beaches, by the side of the road, or in remote rocky areas, with no access to immediate shelter, protection or medical aid; some may even attempt to walk for hours to the south. But the outcry is absent.

Irony screams out, with all of the events aforementioned taking place in the same month in which the liberation of Auschwitz was remembered during the 75th anniversary of it’s closure, with politicians from left to right wing parties proclaiming: “never forgive, never forget!”. But they do forget. They forget all people who are not wanted in Europe because of their country of origin. They forget the tens of thousands of people who lost their lives because of the current EU policy. They forget the children who have experienced nothing else in their whole life than war, conflict zones and flight, and now are forced to live in hostile environments which provoke child suicide attempts. They forget all the young people who are condemned to do nothing, full of potential – potential Europe desperately needs, but apparently would be provided by the “wrong” people. They forget humanity in view of their own political and economic interests. They forget that fascism is in our midst and again the majority is not only watching but willfully ignoring. Thus, new atrocities take place over and over– but, once again, the outcry is absent. Deafeningly, forever absent.

United we stay- divided we fall.
No borders
Solidarity will win

[Bulgaria] CALL FOR SOLIDARITY with the NO NAZIS ON OUR STREETS 2020 demonstration

Wir dokumentieren einen Aufruf unserer Freund*innen aus Sofia:

CALL FOR SOLIDARITY with the NO NAZIS ON OUR STREETS 2020 demonstration

No Nazis on Our Streets 2020 – Sofia, 22.02.20, 13.00 h, Banski Square

On the 22.02.2020, the neo-nazi Lukovmarsh will happen in Sofia for a 17th time. The Bulgarian neo-nazis will walk the streets of Sofia with their  European counterparts. The march will probably be silently patronized by the municipality of Sofia and the higher levels of power in the country.

On 22.02.2020,  the demonstration “No Nazis on Our Streets!” will also take place. After a Pan-European neo-nazi organization called Fortress Europe was established in Sofia in 2019, we think that it is time that society in the country has to wake up and stop its’ silent consent to its’ own fascization.

For us, antifascism is not a party or a person – it is a human position against far-right aggression and violence that has become a reality in the street, as well as a state policy.

Lukovmarsh will happen 75 years after the horror of the Holocaust. While Bulgarian politicians hypocritically go around the world and talk about a “Bulgaria that has saved its’ Jews”, formal and informal neo-nazi groups celebrate the memory of Hristo Lukov – a person who wanted their extermination. Today his ideological heirs appear in more and more places around the country, followed by more neo-nazi marches. At the same time, the Bulgarian “patriotic” government is making attempts for revisionism.

Public figures and media are flooding us with the cliches of the elite, while turning up people against each other: Bulgarians against people who are perceived as non-Bulgarians, heterosexuals against non-heterosexuals, women against men, even medical workers against doctors, the list can go on forever.

It is time to unite against the lies of racism, xenophobia, anti-semitism, homophobia and sexism! Against the lies of power and the state!

The streets are ours! Let’s take reclaim them on 22.02.2020!

In case you haven’t stumbled upon a call for the demonstration “No Nazis on Our Strees” before, here is some general information about why we are protesting  Lukovmarsh:

Who are Antifa Sofia/ Antifa Bulgaria?

We are a group of people with pedominantly anarchist and anti-authoritarian ideas, who oppose traditional party structures and organizations. We have gathered in our attempts to stop the neo-nazi Lukovmarsh and oppose acts of far-right violence.

Who is general Lukov and what is “Lukovmarsh”? 

“Lukovmarsh” is a classical fascist torch-lit march with hundreds of participants that occurs annually since 2003, in February, honoring the memory of the lieutenant-general, politician and minister of war Hristo Lukov (1887-1943), a supporter of Nazi Germany during the World War II, pressuring the government to send the Bulgarian Jews to death camps in Germany, leader of an ultra-nationalistic organization UBNL, clearly proclaim anti-semitism xenophobia, totalitarism and fascism. He was killed by Violeta Yakova, a woman of Jewish origin, member of the underground antifascist resistance in Sofia.

17 years ago, in 2003, the figure of Hristo Lukov was pulled out of the trash bin of history to be commemorated for the first time and the march in his honor has been happening ever since.

The formal and informal groups behind the organization of “Lukovmarsh”, along with most of the participants in the procession, represent the Bulgarian the vast majority of the Bulgarian extreme right and Neo-Nazi scene: the main organizer Bulgarian National Union, the nationalistic party VMRO (officially part of the parliamentary group United Patriots, currently in the government), National Resistance (famous for holding homophobic demos), Neo-Nazi ultras groups, the Bulgarian branch of neonazi organization Blood And Honor and others.

Why is transnational solidarity important?

Ultra-nationalists are already in the government. Parliamentary and extra-parliamentary nazi organizations are uniting against migrants, meeting up, marching together, holding conferences and showing “white international solidarity” more than ever to “protect Europe” as they claim. This was evident in the numbers of foreign supporters of Lukovmarsh lately, among which are: Spain (La Falange), Germany (NPD, Die Rechte, Der III Weg), France (Terre et peuple), Italy (CasaPound), Austria , Croatia (The Neo-Fascist Party), Poland (National Revival), Romania (Nova Dreapta), Hungary, Sweden (The Nordic Front), Russia (Russian Imperial Movement), etc.

Lukovmarsh is a good example for how the system “works” – for years, the march has been protested against. Even the Capital Directorate of Internal Affairs has published data that Lukovmarsh is an event in which members of pro-Nazi terroristic and criminal groups participate. Since 2014, the mayor of Sofia is formally “banning” the march, only later to let Nazis march with their torches, escorting them with a large number of police force. Meanwhile, political parties in close ties with the organizations behind Lukovmarsh are in the local, national and European power structures, holding a number of top positions. Constant hate-speech is promoted and widely welcome in the media, which has continuously used it to raise its audience’s moneymaking fears and racist stereotypes.

[Roeszke11/Ahmed H.] Ahmed is back home!

We are happy to tell you that 4 years after the brutal attack of the Hungarian state on the protests after the closing of the Roeszke border crossing and the arrests of the eleven people, the so called Roeszke 11, the last person Ahmed H. was finally able to leave the country to Cyprus, back to his family, on the 28th of September 2019.

After several years in prison and through the court instances, the Hungarian state ignored the European wide protests and convicted Ahmed in a fake trial of “terrorism” to prison for 5 years in the end in 2018. Since January 2019 he we was meant to be released from prison but had to stay in deportation detention as Cyprus didn`t want to let him return to his family there.

We wish Ahmed and his family all the best!
Thanks to all people supporting Ahmed and his family and the Roeszke 11 – solidarity will win! Lets fight injustice and the border regime!

[Ahmed H.] 4 years after the Röszke11 riots: The Cyprian government denies Ahmed’s return to his family

The Cyprian government denies Ahmed’s return to his family

Today four years have passed since the “Röszke riot”, the attack of the
Hungarian riot police and TEK (counter-terrorism unite) on protesting
migrants against borders and limitation of freedom of movement in
September 2015. During and after this riot eleven people were arrested
and later faced a court trial.

Ahmed H., one of the arrested eleven people was convicted for terrorism
and sentenced first to 10, than to 7 and on the last court instance to 5
years prison.

On the 19th of January 2019 he was supposed to get released on parole,
after he finished two third of his sentence. But instead of returning
home, he was transferred to the immigration prison in Nyirbátor, in the
east of Hungary. He was waiting for months there for Cyprus to renew his
visa, which expired during the time he spent in prison . He used to live
in Cyprus before his arrest for more than ten years together with his
wife and children. He left the country and ended at Hungarian-Serbian
border, because he accompanied his parents from Syria to Europe.
Although the authorities promised him that he can return home with his
renewed visa after the administration procedure is over, after months of
waiting he learnt, that the government of Cyprus refused his return. The
interior ministry of Cyprus stated that he is a security threat and
cannot get visa.

There is apparently no state willing to let Ahmed enter, so he remains
trapped in the Hungarian jail. In the last months we could not publish
anything about the case because his family did not want to go public
with this further developments until now. We were silent, but we did not
disappear.

During the trial, there was very strong criticism against the Hungarian
state. The liberal media, international organisations, and even the EU
parliament were accusing Hungary of not respecting european values.
Cyprus’ refusal to renew Ahmed’s visa prove, that his situation is not
exclusively the
fault of an ‘undemocratic’, ‘dictatorial’ regime. The racist
anti-immigrant and anti-terrorist
discourse is an essential part of the idea of ‘Europe’ and the european
border regime,
that all european states follow.

This is a call for solidarity actions targeting this time the Cyprian
state and its institutions. A strong international public pressure is
needed for Ahmed’s release and return home. The government of Cyprus has
to let him join his family again and be finally free from the
imprisonment! Spread the news, spread solidarity!

Let us not forget the prisoners of the Fortress!
Freedom for Ahmed H.!

[Athen] Repressionswelle und Räumungen von Refugee-Squats in Exarcheia

Artikel zuerst veröffentlicht auf enough is enough 14 am 27. August 2017:

Greek territory: #Exarcheia under police occupation!

Athens, August 26. Alert! What we have been announcing to you for a month and a half has just begun this morning (yesterday morning, Enough 14), just before dawn. Athens’ famous rebel and supportive neighbourhood is completely surrounded by huge police forces: many riot police buses (MAT), anti-terrorist untis (OPKE), police on motorbikes (DIAS), members of the secret police (asfalitès), as well as a helicopter and several drones.

Originally published by BlogYY. Written by Yannis Youlountas. Translated by Squat Net.

A unique place in Europe for its high concentration of squats and other self-managed spaces, but also for its resistance against repression and its solidarity with precarious and migrants, Exarcheia has been in the sight of the right-wing government since its election on 7 July. The new Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had made it a personal affair, especially since he had been mocked in early August for failing to achieve his goal of “cleaning Exarcheia in a month” as he had announced with great fanfare.

This morning, 4 squats were evicted: Spirou Trikoupi 17, Transito, Rosa de Foc and Gare. The offensive currently concerns the north-western part of the district, with the notable exception of the Notara 26 squat, which is considered better guarded and very symbolically important for the district as the first historical squat of the “refugee crisis” in downtown Athens.

There are currently about 100 arrests, including than brutal attacks on people trying to film. Only the mass media in the service of power are allowed to cover the event.

In total, there are 23 squats in Exarcheia plus 26 others around the district, for a total of 49 concentrated in a relatively small area. 49 squats to which other types of self-managed sites must be added, including some rented (Espace Social Libre Nosotros, free shop Skoros, etc.) as well as dozens of private homes groups of activists, often near the terraces to allow access above the streets.

On the squats that are precisely inside Exarcheia, 12 are accommodation squats for refugees and migrants and the 11 others are squats of anarchist and anti-authoritarian collectives (although most refugee squats are also obviously very political, starting with Notara 26 and Spirou Trikoupi 17 with direct assemblies and many links with the rest of the movement).

In the squats of Spirou Trikoupi 17 and Transito (on which servants of power are now bricking up windows), more than fifteen children have been torn from a peaceful and happy existence in order to suddenly being sent to camps. These sinister camps are unhealthy and overcrowded, migrants are malnourished and suffer from temperature variations, humiliation, and sometimes torture, and Mitsotakis also demands that they all be well closed and, in the future, completely cut off from the rest of the territory.

The face of Europe is constantly hardening, the same process is happening in other continents. This evolution increasing authoritarian capitalism leads us to question what the coming times will bring: the offensive against the pockets of utopias coupled with the confinement of the scapegoats reminds us of the dark hours of History.

The whole world is becoming fascist and Greece is once again one of them, one of the laboratories.

But nothing is over. September is coming soon. Seasonal jobs are about to end. The social movement gathers and organizes itself again. Places like Notara 26 and K*Vox are under high surveillance. Answers are being prepared, as well as several major events mobilizers. Autumn will be hot in Athens.

Resistance!

Today, Tuesday August 27, there wull be several protests and solidarity actions:

[Balkan] Neues Mapping-Projekt gegen Push-Backs

Dieser Beitrag wurde zuerst veröffentlicht unter www.pushbackmap.org am 18. Juni 2019

Ein Instrument zur kollektiven Bekämpfung des repressiven Grenz- und Kontrollregimes

Zagreb, 18. Juni 2019: Derzeit erleben wir eine Zunahme der institutionellen Gewalt in ganz Europa. An den Grenzen der EU finden täglich Abschiebungen und Zwangsrückführung über die Grenzen hinweg statt. Diese gewalttätigen Praktiken werden als Push-backs bezeichnet. Es handelt sich um eine systematische institutionalisierte Technik, mit der grenzüberschreitende Bewegung unterdrückt wird. Mit unserem neu entwickelten Online-Tool The Push-back Map, (www.pushbackmap.org)  wollen wir diese Praktiken kartieren, dokumentieren, visualisieren und anprangern.

[Paris] Communiqué de Gilet Noirs

Aufstehn, ihr Toten!
»Gilets Noirs« in Frankreich - Bewegung der sans papiersHeute besetzen wir das Panthéon, wir, die EinwandererInnen ohne Papiere, BewohnerInnen der (Not-) Unterkünfte, MieterInnen der Straße.
Wir haben keine Papiere, keine Stimme, kein Gesicht für die französiche Republik. Wir kommen zusammen auf dem Grab eurer großen Männer um eure Schändungen anzuprangern, die der Erinnerung unserer Kameraden, unserer Väter und Mütter, unserer Brüder und Schwestern im Mittelmeer, in der Straßen von Paris, in den Lagern und Gefängnissen. Frankreich fährt fort mit der Skaverei auf andere Art. Unsere Väter sind für Frankreich gestorben. Und die Toten bleiben tot und sollen in Frieden ruhen.
Vorgestern haben wir die Grenze angegriffen, indem wir den Air France Terminal im Flughafen Cherles de Gaulle bestzten. Es ist dort, wo die französische Polizei uns in die Flugzeuge nach Algier, Dakr, Khartum, Bamako oder Kabul verfrachtet hat. Von dort ist Djiby deportiert worden!
Gestern haben wir  den Turm von Ellor in La Défence und die Hauptdirektion des Arbeitsamtes besetzt. Wir waren dort um den Chefs, die uns erniedrigen und das Rückgrat brechen, zu sagen: Die Angst hat das Lager gewechselt!
Heute fahren wir fort, die Schläge zurückzugeben an den Staat und seinen Rassismus, in Frankreich und in Europa.
Wir sind gekommen um unsere Würde zu verteidigen. Wir flehen niemanden mehr an und wir werden unsere Rechte mit der Kraft des Kampfes herausreißen!
Wir sind gekommen um euch zu sagen, dass das Motto Frankreichs für die Fremden Erniedrigung, Ausbeutung, Deportation ist. Frankreich für dort Krieg, beutet unsere Ressourcen aus und entscheidet für und mit unseren korrupten Staaten. Frankreich für hier Krieg gegen uns.
WIR BESETZEN,

  • weil es 200 000 freie Wohnungen in Paris gibt, und dabei die Unseren unter den Auffahrten des Périphérique schlafen und das Rathaus gestern die Straßen des Camps Avenue Wilson in Saint Denis eingezäunt hat.
  • Weil im Lager von Thiais, wie in allen anderen, die Polizei heute morgen die Bewohner bis in ihre Wohnungen verfolgt hat.
  • Weil wir die Befreiung unserer Schwarzwesten-Kameraden verlangen, die in Verwahrzentren und anderswo gefangen sind.

Für die Abschaffung der Gefängnisse für Fremde!
Wir kämpfen nicht nur für Papiere, sonder gegen das System, das die Papierlosen erschafft.
Wir werden keinen Bullen oder Schalterbeamten mehr bezahlen um einen Termin zu bekommen.
Wir wollen nicht mehr mit dem Innenminister und seinen Präfenkturen verhandeln müssen
WIR WOLLEN JETZT MIT DEM MINISTERPÄSITENTEN EDOUARD PHILIIPE SPRECHEN!
Wir bleiben hier, bis der letzte von uns seien Papiere bekommt und damit diejenigen, die kommen werden, das Recht zu bleiben bekommen.
An alle, die revoltieren, hier, im Sudan oder in Algerien,
An unsere Kameraden, an alle, die gegen die Ausbeuter kämpfen,
An alle, die glauben, dass kein Mensch illegal ist,
An alle, die es leid sind, alle 5 Jahre der extremen Rechten den Riegel vorzuschieben und die überzeugt sind, dass der Kampf gegen den kommenden Rassismuns der Kampf gegen den existierenden Ressisum bedeutet.
Papiere und Wohnungen für alle! Bewegungs- und Niederlassungfreiheit! Es lebe der Kampf der Schwarzwesten! Schwarzwesten in den Kampf!

Les Gilets Noirs cherchent le Premier Ministre !

/Né en Novembre 2018, le mouvement des Gilets Noirs lutte contre
le racisme et pour des papiers pour toutes et tous. Il regroupe
aujourd’hui 50 foyers d’Ile-de-France et des locataires de la rue,
en lutte pour leur dignité./

Vendredi 12 juillet, 700 Gilets Noirs ont occupé le Panthéon pour
revendiquer leurs droits, le droit à la dignité, le droit à avoir des
papiers pour ne plus être chassé.e.s quotidiennement par les flics.

Cette action s’inscrit dans la campagne victorieuse des Gilets Noirs
“Gilets noirs cherchent premier ministre” lancée le 19 mai 2019 par
l’occupation du terminal 2F de l’Aéroport de Roissy-Charles de Gaulle et
l’occupation de la tour Elior à la Défense le 12 juin 2019. Ces deux
premiers coups portés au système raciste d’exploitation des sans-papiers
ont montré que les gilets noirs n’avaient plus peur.

Parce qu’ils et elles revendiquaient ce vendredi, comme ils et elles le
font depuis plusieurs mois la fin de l’humiliation, de la répression, du
racisme, et après plusieurs heures d’occupation du Panthéon et de
négociations en cours avec Matignon, les gilets noirs ont été
brutalement réprimés alors que le commissaire Marsan s’était engagé à
une sortie négociée sans violence et sans contrôle d’identité.

Nassé.e.s à l’arrière du Panthéon, rue Clotilde, et alors que de
nombreux soutiens nous avaient rejoints, dont les député.e.s Danièle
Obono et Eric Coquerel et la sénatrice Esther Benbassa, l’ordre a été
donné de frapper aveuglément et de cibler et rafler un maximum de
camarades sans-papiers. Après quatre charges policières ultra-violentes
dont la dernière a mis à terre plus de quarante personnes blessées, dont
certaines inconscientes dans un état grave, la nasse a pu être libérée.

Les camarades se sont passé.e.s le relais toute la nuit dans les
hôpitaux pour accompagner les blessé.e.s et s’assurer de leur prise en
charge. Nous avons recueilli plus d’une vingtaine de certificats pour
porter plainte au pénal.

36 personnes ont été arrêtées. Alors que 17 ont été libérés hier suite à
un rassemblement devant le commissariat du 5ème arrondissement, 19
autres ont été arbitrairement enfermées au centre de rétention de
Vincennes, prison pour étranger.e.s afin de les déporter.

Nous nous organisons nuit et jour pour la riposte.

Les avocat.e.s ont les dossiers et beaucoup de moyens de nullité ont été
soulevés.

Nous avons besoin d’argent pour payer les avocat.e.s et organiser leur
défense. Pour venger les camarades blessés sous les coups de la police
raciste, fichés par l’hôpital, et enfermés au centre de rétention de
Vincennes.

les libérerons. *

[Deutschland] Ellwangen und Donauwörth – zwei Symbole für solidarischen Protest

Selbstorganisierte Migrantenproteste, Polizeirazzien und zufällige Strafverfolgungsmaßnahmen in Refugee Camps in Deutschland

In deutschen Flüchtlingslagern – vor allem in den sehr großen Erstaufnahmezentren – finden häufig selbstorganisierte Proteste statt. Die Menschen demonstrieren für akzeptable Lebensbedingungen. Außerdem gibt es viele Proteste gegen das deutsche Asylsystem, das für viele Migrant_innen unerträgliche Situationen schafft und die Menschen in einem Zustand der strukturellen Paralyse gefangen hält, nicht in der Lage sich zu selbst zu organisieren.

Während des Asyl-Verfahrens sind sie gezwungen, in Lagern zu leben, nicht arbeiten zu dürfen,  nur mit sehr wenig Geld auszukommen – tatsächlich weniger als das, was der deutsche Staat als human definiert.

Eines der größten Probleme ist die ständige Gefahr der Abschiebung. Die Polizei bricht nächtlich in private Räume ein, schreit und wendet physische Gewalt an, um gesuchte Menschen für die Abschiebung aufzufinden. Inzwischen bestätigen viele Gerichtsurteile, dass  solche Polizei Aktionen gegen §§13 des deutschen Grundgesetzes verstoßen, das die Unverletzlichkeit des Wohnraums sicherstellt.

Die Migrant_innenn wenden sich oft gegen versuchte Abschiebungen und Polizeieinsätze mit Protest und Widerstand. Im Frühsommer 2017, hatten die Bewohner eines Lagers In Osnabrück mit 200 Personen in Selbstorganisation Abschiebungen verhindert. Sie machen jede Nacht Wachen. Sobald sie ein Polizeiauto näherte, trillerten sie eine Pfeife, die Alle im Lager aufweckte. Alle zusammen gingen sie nach draußen und blockierten den Eingang. Die Polizei war nicht in der Lage, die Person zu finden, die sie deportieren wollten. Mit dieser Taktik waren sie in der Lage, unzählige Abschiebungen zu verhindern. Die Polizisten konnten das Lager für mehr als 100 Tage nicht betreten.

Im Zuge der fortschreitenden Verschlechterung des deutschen Asylsystems werden Migrant_innen in den letzten Jahren immer mehr kriminalisiert. Protest, wie in Osnabrück wird oft von einem rechten Medienshitstorm und durch Repression durch den Staat begleitet. In einigen Fällen, auch wenn die Menschen nicht protestiert haben, erfinden Polizei und Medien einfach Lügenmärchen über Aktionen, Gewalt und Widerstand gegen die Polizei, um massive Polizei Überfälle  zu rechtfertigen.

Im März 2018 drang die Polizei zur Abschiebung einer Person in das Erstaufnahmezentrum in Donau-Wörth, Bayern ein. Der Mann war weder in seinem Zimmer noch im Lager. Niemand widersetzte sich der Polizei, einige Leute argumentierten, dass die Polizei kein Recht hatte, unbeteiligte Menschen mitten in der Nacht zu wecken, weil sie eine Person suchen. Ein Feueralarm brach aus.

Am nächsten Tag überfiel die Polizei das gesamte Lager mit 200 Polizisten mit physischer Gewalt, CS-Gas und Pfefferspray. Sie haben zufällig 32 Personen verhaftet, 30 von ihnen von ihnen wurden isoliert für 2 Monate inhaftiert und wegen ordnungswidrigem Verhalten, Körperverletzung, Übergriffe und Widerstand gegen die Polizei angeklagt. Einige Menschen wurden direkt aus dem Gefängnis nach Italien deportiert. 7 Personen gelang es, Beschwerden gegen ihre Strafbefehle einzureichen, 3 von ihnen wurden trotzdem abgeschoben.

Im November 2018 wurde das erste Gerichtsverfahren gegen 2 der Migranten eingeleitet.  Die Jury musste zugeben, dass es keine Beweise für Gewalt und Widerstand gegen die Polizei existiert. Trotz allem wurden die Anschuldigungen aufrechtgehalten. Die Angeklagten werden den Fall in die nächste Instanz bringen.

Ein weiterer Fall ereignete sich im April/ Mai 2018 bei einem Erstauf
