#RefugeeStruggle: Neither Integration Nor Law

Times are gone, in which the German state presented itself as a refuge of humanity and of culture of welcome and in which it was comparatively easy to enter the country for refugees (partly also without registration). Nowadays agreements are made with governors like the Turkish president Erdogan, to prevent refugees from coming close to the German borders; to speed up the asylum procedure, more and more states are designated as secure countries of origin, so that people can be deported there without a so called individual case inspection; an annual maximum limit for asylum requests is discussed and incidents like IS attacks or sexual assaults on women are instrumentalised to stir up fear within society and to legitimate a harsh approach against any form of foreigner’s criminality.

#RefugeesGR #Athens, #Greece: Hunger Strike in #Elliniko Camp

On 5th February 2017, most of the adults (about 200, editor Enough is Enough) among the 711 refugees residing in a state-run Camp in the former Athens National Airport (Camp Elliniko II), in the majority coming from Afghanistan, started a hunger strike to protest against their degrading living conditions demanding for their transfer to homes, papers and freedom of movement for all. As reported by one of the refugees, it is very likely that residents of the two other camps in Elliniko (the nearby Olympic baseball and a hockey stadiums) might join in the protest today.

After 11 o’clock refugees opened the door. Two kids get slightly injured during the protest, one of which got punched by a police officer. Mouzalas entered without police forces one of the buildings but exited shortly after as refugees were reacting angrily to his presence inside. He had visited the camp last time in July 2016!
