Teaching Personnel at the University of Aegean: we will not contribute to the policing of refugees

Since the end of July, a 35 metre-long zeppelin type of aircraft was placed above Karlovasi, on Samos island, containing high-tech surveillance systems. The zeppelin is owned by a German company and has been rented by FRONTEX which gave it to the Greek Port Authority and the Coastguard in order to, according to the announcement of the deputee minister of Citizen Protection, surveil and record the refugee influx in the greater area of Samos and the Turkish shores. Also, according to a statement made by the Port Authority to effectively guard the external borders of the E.U. and to tackle every form of criminal behaviour.

A greeting from the new world

It is now one week ago that some people occupied the Osterholz forest in Wuppertal (German territory). This week we watched the deers galloping through the forest. Watching the frogs moving through Chalk Town in wet weather conditions. We were also allowed to listen to eagle owls when they go hunting in the dark. And there were so many great people visiting us. We had many conversations about ecology, the destructive way of life of the old world and how we can build another world. It was an inspiring week.

Osterholz Forest Wuppertal: Police threaten forest walkers with pepper spray

Wuppertal, German territory. Yesterday (August 20) a police operation took place in the Osterholz forest. According to statements by various journalists and the Westdeutsche Zeitung (WZ), the police claimed that this operation took place because “objects such as bars, chains, wood and pallets were transported into the forest” (quote WZ). The WZ also writes that the “alarmed police” met five people on the spot who were sent off. This police depiction is not correct. The police operation lasted about five hours. The five people who were sent off did not arrive in the forest until several hours after the police had started the operation and therefore could not have been the reason for the operation. Nor did the five people have any objects such as poles, wood, pallets or chains with them. Nothing was confiscated by the police when the five people were sent off.
