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

The Greek state has a long tradition in the racist management of refugees and migrants within it. The on going war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa (to which the Greek state actively contributes), the exclusion and exploitation policies, as well as ecological disaster, are forcing hundreds of thousands of people to seek a better future in Europe.
The planning of the European Union, however, holds a nightmarish future for them, with the Greek state being behind the expansive military interventions and at the forefront of the war against migrants on the European territories.
Rotterdam. Netherlands. Detention Centre Rotterdam (DCR) was opened 10 years ago. For the last decade this prison – the first correctional facility in the Netherlands built and maintained with a public-private partnership – has served as a base for deportations. Dutch and European migration policies cost thousands of lives, while lining the pockets of the rich and arms dealers. This must stop now!Continue reading Rotterdam, Netherlands: Demonstration May 30, 2021 – Close DCR: No One Is Illegal!
