For about a year, the catastrophic situation at the Polish-Belarusian border has led to life-threatening migration routes via Poland to Germany and other EU countries. People on the move are instrumentalized for political conflicts, are criminalized in Polish camps, mistreated and deprived of their most basic human rights. If they manage to continue their journey, they meet Germanys undignified and grueling asylum system, which in many cases foresees a Dublin deportation back to Poland.Continue reading Pushbacks at the German-Polish border – people seeking protection are pushed back to Poland by the German federal police

Krosno Odrzańskie. Poland. We want to express our solidarity with all those imprisoned in the closed retention centers centers. Officially they are called centers for foreigners, but we prefer to speak of retention centers because the conditions in which these people live there have nothing to do with what legally should be a center for foreigners.
We will not forget about these people, even though the authorities are trying to do everything in their power to erase their existence from public awareness.

Thousands of migrants are stranded along the border between Poland and Belarus trying to enter the European Union. As we have already reported some time ago, for months the eastern EU countries have become the new routes used by migrants to reach Europe, avoiding crossing into Turkey and ending up imprisoned by the agreements between Erdogan and the European Commission or risking their lives in the Mediterranean Sea. In recent days, however, the Polish government has decided to block them: Poland has set up an emergency zone of several kilometres along the border, employing police and army. Lithuania, the other country of entry, has done the same. This prevents anyone from helping the migrants stuck in the cold in the middle of the forest. Several of them have already died as a result of this blockade. Attempts to break through are repelled with tear gas and barbed wire.Continue reading Statement in Support of Migrants Stranded at the Belarus-EU Border
