Cruel conditions in Greece: Speech at the WirHabenPlatz demo

Es ist absurd, dass wir heute hier demonstrieren, dass wir uns auf die Straße stellen müssen, um die Aufnahme von Menschen aus dem Grauen der ägäischen Inseln zu fordern. Die Aufnahme in Kommunen, die schon vor über einem Jahr erklärt haben, dass sie Platz haben und dass sie mehr geflüchtete Menschen aufnehmen wollen. Dass wir dagegen demonstrieren, dass Kinder und Jugendliche auf den ägäischen Inseln, auf dem griechischen Festland und in anderen Hotspots in und um Europa einen täglichen Überlebenskampf führen.

Human rights violations at Croatia’s borders must cease immediately

At the European Union’s external borders in Croatia people are deprived of their right to seek protection in the EU. Pushbacks – the forced return of people – are exercised with life threatening brutality. The increasing use of firearms is the inevitable consequence of a policy that puts the protection of its borders above the protection of people.

Report: Trial against Hamza Haddi & Mohamed Haddar

Hamza Haddi and Mohamed Haddar were accused after their own escape of illegally transporting two other Moroccans, including the brother of Hamza Yassine Haddi, to Greece. They were also prosecuted for their own illegal entry. In addition, they were accused of acting for profit. The case of Hamza and Mohamed is not an isolated incident, but paradigmatic for another facet of European policy of closing borders and deterrence, where refugees and migrants are criminalised through the arbitrary application of anti-smuggling laws. The hearing took place on 04.02.20 in Komotini, Greece.

Cruel conditions in Greece: Speech at the WirHabenPlatz demo

It is absurd that we are demonstrating here today, and that we have to be on the streets to demand the reception of people from the horror of the Aegean islands in Germany. The reception in municipalities that declared more than a year ago that they had space and that they would like to receive more refugees. It is absurd that we demonstrate against the daily struggle for survival of children and young people in the Aegean islands, in mainland Greece and in other hotspots in and around Europe.
