Lesbos: Overview arrivals of refugees 2018

Seit dem Inkrafttreten des EU-Türkei-Abkommens vor drei Jahren entwickelte sich die angespannte Lage auf den fünf griechischen Hotspot-Inseln Lesbos, Samos, Chios, Leros und Kos in eine Dauersituation, in der die Menschen in überfüllten Lagern zum Teil jahrelang feststecken. Nur sehr wenige werden zurück in die Türkei gebracht, neue Boote erreichen die griechische Küste weiterhin regelmäßig. Lesen Sie hier einen Überblicksbericht über die Ankünfte von Geflüchteten auf Lesbos 2018 und deren Situation vor Ort.

Poland continues arbitrary returns of asylum seekers to Belarus

Practices at the EU external border undermine the right of people to international protection. In the early morning it gets busy in the train station of Brest, Belarus. The city is only a few kilometres from the Polish border town Terespol - a short train ride. For most asylum seekers here it is not the first time they are attempting to seek asylum in Poland, some have tried dozens of times. Most come from authoritarian states in Central Asia and Chechnya. But the procedure at the border is arbitrary. Its said that maximum one family per day is allowed in. As this report shows, the situation at the Eastern border of the EU is yet another example for the erosion of the right to asylum in Europe.

Stefan Schmidt: "Wir brauchen mehr Druck von unten"

On 28.06.19 Italian police arrested the captain of the Sea-Watch and confiscated the sea rescue organisation's ship. After the #iuventa10, this is currently the second case where Italian authorities are trying to take sea rescuers to court. borderline-europe recalls: Almost the same story happened exactly 15 years ago: In 2004 our founding members Elias Bierdel and Stefan Schmidt were arrested and put on trial for rescuing people from distress at sea. Already 15 years ago, the court decided: acquittal, since the international maritime law obligates to save humans in sea distress. This can not be punishable under national law either - according to the judges on 7.10.2009. A review and commentary by our founding member Stefan Schmidt.
