Statement: Turgay

_MG_6804_Turgay

„Diese Bewegung heisst Refugee streikt. Wir sind seit zwei Jahren auf der Straße. Bis jetzt wir haben viele verschiedene Aktionen organisiert. Gegen Residenzpflicht, gegen Lager, gegen die Abschiebung aber bis jetzt vom Senat, vom Parlament oder von Gerichten keine positive Antwort. Immer von Regierung die gleiche Taktik. Ersteinmal die haben gesagt willkommen Geflüchtete hier und dann die haben für die Räumung und für die Abschiebung ein Angebot gegeben aber danach viele Flüchtlinge Gruppen einen Schlafplatz gegeben. Aber drei Monate später alles haben geräumt und jetzt 108 Leute haben Abschiebung und vorgestern auch alle Schlafplätze geräumt. Ohne alternativ die Leute einfach auf der Straße gegangen und die wollen jetzt auch unsere besetzte Schule räumen, das ist jetzt aktuelle Situation. Aber sie haben vorher auch, viel Polizei attackiert, nasa(?) attackiert oder von den Regierungen viele gedruckt aber die Bewegung ist nicht geendet. Wir wollen weiter gehen, wir haben am 14 November eine Refugee Konferenz, wir haben alle verschieden Refugee Gruppen und antikapitalist und antirassistische Bewegungen eingeladen. Wir wollen wieder sprechen für die Zukunft, wir wollen wieder stärker sein. Ja das ist die Bewegung für die Deutschland ist ganz neue weil vorher viele Projekt, viele Kampagnen von draussen, von den NGO Gruppen, aber seit zwei Jahren die geflüchteten selbst organisiert weil 2012 in Würzburg ein Lager, ein iranischer Flüchtling hat Selbstmord, Mohammed Rhasepar und danach eine Hungerstreik organisiert und dann wir haben ein camp organisiert in Erfurt, heisst „break isolation“ camp. Viele lokal Gruppen da getroffen und dann wir haben Gedanken jetzt wir brauchen eine große Protest. Wir sind von Würzburg nach Berlin gelaufen. 600 km und danach in Berlin Oranien-platz besetzt ein Zelt, viele Zelte aufgebaut. Aber und danach Dilek Kolat hat einen Vorschlag gegeben für die Lampedusa Status, bis sechs Monate Duldung für die aslystatus, asylrechte geben. Die haben gesagt, aber wir haben nicht akzeptiert die Delegation Gruppe aber eine Gruppe haben akzeptieren und mit geräumt Oranienplatz mit Polizei, SPD, grüne alles mitgemacht. Die ganzen Medien haben geschrieben das ist friedliche Lösung weil wir sind seit ein anderthalb Jahre im O-platz gelebt im Zelt. Die haben gesagt das ist nicht humanitär, nicht gut , ist kalt nicht gesund und nicht sauber. Und haben den verschiedenen Leuten Appartement gegeben, aber das Problem gibt gesetzte in Deutschland Dublin zwei, Dublin drei. Wir haben gesagt dieser Vorschlag hat keine Garantie. Für die bleiben, Bleiberecht und der Senat hat gesagt, aber wir sind offiziell ein Papier untergeschrieben warum sie haben keine vertrag ja und dann drei Monate später alle Abschiebung und Räumung das ist Realität weil bis jetzt keine Lösung für die Flüchtlinge Problematik von Senat, von Regierung weil die wollen immer Waffen einkaufen krieg machen, aber die wollen keine Flüchtlinge hier. Das ist Problem. Und unsere Lösung, praktische Lösung, weil die rassistische und kolonialistische gesetzte nicht geändert. Aber wir haben seit zwei Jahren schon die Residenzpflicht und Lager Abschiebungssystem gebrochen. Wir leben auf der Straße selbst ein kommunal leben denn unsere Lösung ist auf der Straße weil wir haben keine andere Chance, keine andere Lebensplatz, Arbeitsverbot für uns und keine Freibewegung aber wir wollen nicht in Lager bleiben, weil die Lager System die letzten Monaten alle Medien haben geschrieben zum Beispiel ein Lager hat Folter von der Security, aber nicht nur ein Lager, weil viele Lager gibt Folter und Gewalt von Security oder von Polizei. Aber die Medien haben nicht gesehen das Problem und auch wir haben viele neue Aktion formen gebracht, für die deutschen linken Bewegungen. Wir haben auf baum besetzt, auf Dach besetzt gegen die Räumung. Die müssen lernen von der Refugee Bewegung weil es gibt keine gute Protest Bewegung in Deutschland, das ist das Problem, weil alle Unterstützer haben gesagt, oh wir haben kein Problem, wir sind nur unterstützer, das Problem ist nur Flüchtling Problem. Aber das ist falsch, falsche Analyse und falsche Position weil es gibt viele antidemokratische gesetzt in Deutschland. Das erste mal muss die deutschen Leute interessieren diese Antidemokratie gesetzte, nicht nur Flüchtlinge. Warum die gesetzt geht weiter? Weil keine gute Protestbewegung in Deutschland. Mein deutsch ist fertig“

When words are sick, the ear that hears them needs to be healthy

Welcome, I am your brother Maous or Ousmane. I am here in Germany. I want to tell you what I have experienced on my way from Africa to Europe. We know it is hard in Africa, we have nothing, but we also lack nothing. We only want to make our life better. We say, someone who doesn’t go on a journey can not know where a good country is. Only someone who tastes, knows what tastes good. On this day I have told my mother, that I go to Europe. I don’t know if my mother was happy or if she was nervous. I don’t know if she laughed or cried. And what it was I dreamt of in Africa, it was that one can work good in Europe and earn money. And that is true, there is work and there is money, but they don’t want to share these things with us. They also don’t want us to life in the same town as them. They give us a ›Heim‹ (›Home‹) far away from the town. There is nothing. There it is hard. They don’t want to share with us, because they think, we don’t have a place here. On this day I put my backpack over my shoulder, I left my mother behind me and kept on walking. I don’t know if I will see her again or not. I traveled with the ship to Dakar and from there with the bus to Morocco. What I regret the most are the three months that I slept in the woods in Marokko. I didn’t know a house, only in the woods I lived. In this time I at least tried 6 times to get to Spain with a rubber dinghy. It is not easy to get across the sea past the big containerships. Someone who does that hast no fear of death. You have no fear of death, because you already died, whilst you are still alive. Only the body was there, the soul was gone. We always were happy when there was fog, then the military can not see us. 6 times it didn’t work. It didn’t work, in other words the moroccan marine takes us out of the sea and sends us to prison. I ask you, who of you wants to sleep in the woods? It was hard. And this money we did get, it comes from the highway. We are standing at the highway with outstretched hand and asked for money. This is something we never did in the country we come from. We have done that because we needed something to eat and to drink, not because we know of this.
You have fought, fought, fought until Europe. And here it is a lot more difficult then in Africa, because everything you need exist here, but you cannot have it. You want work, there is work, but you are not allowed to work. Why? And you (the white people) are born here and raised and you didn’t chose it. And us Africans we are born and raised without choosing where. We Africans understand this. But you are scared of us. You don’t know us.  You are friendlier with a lion then with us. Us Africans, we want to get to know you, but you don’t want to. Why? You don’t want it because we have nothing and because we are dirty, we are sick and unhealthy. All illnesses you can think of is us. Anything that is bad is us. In Africa we already knew, that if someone has nothing and somewhere suddenly something is missing, that then they say, the one who has nothing took it. Everything they are missing, they search for they believe you took. In reality, them who have it all, took it off someone.  This is Europe. We want to work and have only been lying in bed. All our bones hurt. Africa is hard too, but we work nevertheless. We just try to earn 5 or 10 Euros a day. That is enough for us, but not for the whole family we want to take care of. We have nothing but we are happy.
You are new here, but you have to listen to what the people say. Because if say ›no‹ this only means you haven’t seen it yet.
We are tired from lying. In Wolof, we say, only when you move you find your luck. We need to meet people, because they don’t know us and they will not know you. We do what we can, here there are good and bad people and back home in Africa it is exactly the same. We have to understand it is not easy. On the first day, the day you were born your first cry meant you are coming to a hard world. The first cry means you are coming somewhere where it is not easy. Fight, fight, fight and then god can help us. You have not arrived yet.

Mousa Adam

I came from a very far place, from a city called Niyala, in Sudan. I have entered into Europe through the Mediterranean Sea to Lampedusa, and I do not posses any documents or right to work or a place to reside in Europe. I am in very uncomfortable and bad humanitarian status, I came to Europe to seek freedom, and I hope to be treated equally and have document with rights to travel, work, and move freely within Europe and the whole world like every one else. I do not pose any danger for the European society, and I have love for all human being, cause we have been created equally, and I feel sorry when I see lots of people practice hidden prejudice in their treatments and their decision in limiting the freedom of others without showing their discrimination. I do not get any welfare and assistance money for refugees in Germany, I do not have any place to live after the school eviction in Berlin, and I live now Oranien Platz. I do not own any living means, or know any one other than the refugees in there, and I am in unstable psychological state for the sever discomfort in Germany. The lack of means of integration within the German society, and I hope I hope to have friends in the society like every one else and have the right to travel to see my parents and my family and I do not have documents to do it. I hope all people will be treated in a way without discrimination. I have demanded a refuge and asylum in Germany. My application was unfairly rejected, I came from an unstable armed conflict and our area is a war zone by the Sudanese military government, which its president is a recognize war criminal by the international court. I was deported back to Italy cause it was my first point of entry to Europe, and due to the fact that Italian government doesn’t provide benefits to refugees and asylum seekers I went to Germany. But because my application turned down before I can not get papers to get simple right like visiting the or medical doctor to get treated from my chest pains that I always experience.I still live in Oranien platz in Berlin with a group of refugees that do not get any support or any humanitarian assistance from the German government.

Statement: Anonymous (Berlin)

“Today I am very happy to see you to come to visit us and to see our situation. Because we have very bad situation and every day our situation is going up and going very bigger, it became biggest and we are near to … next month it will be snow so we think, more think, to get gases for to make hot tents, we need more food also we have needed to eat because hungry man is an angry man as I told you. Also… Just now also I am hungry, really I am hungry, I want to eat something even you have in your bag maybe you can give me something to eat. I think that … Also I think the situation not for myself also I think for everybody in this camp the situation went to change and we will get work, we will get work permit also I want also that this camp will be closed and everybody is going to get a work permit and his house, his own house also.. and also to be far from problems far from angry… maybe sometimes will be sick and how to go to the hospital to buy medicine? It is a problem… Because if you haven´t any money, you can´t go to the hospital and if a man became totally sick we will call ambulance and ambulance come to take him to [?hospital?]. Also we think we have very serious problem in this camp also. Even I have important things in this camp also.. we have also 6100 Euro to pay about electricity. The next Monday they are going to cut the electricity. If there is no electricity it is very bad because we use electricity to charge our telephones, we use also… some of us have some CD´s and also have also some CD´s to see some films, african film, european film and something. But if there is no light how we can do? The situation become more.. also some if there is light you can maybe buy some electric machines to make hot tents, to protect us. Also if there is no light it is a big problem so we have very big situation about light also to have to pay, if we didn’t pay until next week they are going to cut. Also we have serious problem about the food also it is very a very big problem. Now, yesterday, yesterday two o´clock pm we ate, after 24 hours now is still now, how many hours? More than 24 hours, so we didn’t eat nothing. Maybe I don´t know if there is no money maybe tomorrow also we will eat or we will not eat. I don´t know, so that why we have very serious problems, but our first problem is to eat, to get – if you are, you eat- you will be more strong, you have power but if you didn´t eat you will be sick, you are lazy and you are feeling bad, so you are not strong, and also you have problems for eyes you think more things, more problems, so that is .. by the grace of god, the system will change and everything will be well and organized, by the grace of god. Everybody will get his own work, his own department, his own maybe cars, if you are working you have to buy car also. So I think by the grace of god everything will be nice and well. But I don´t know a thing, it will be tomorrow, so today maybe I have situation, maybe tomorrow I´m ok. So by the grace of God everything will be ok and nice. And we are fighting! We are here to fight for ever. Our demands are how to get right to stay, right to work, right to read, right to go to school, right to also rent your own house, right to work and right to don´t think about people or to ask them people or to ask, to think about any donation for any other people, so you fight to get our rights. Because if there is really right in Europe, we are fighting about our rights. If they say that you don´t have any right, so everybody is going back to Africa to leave europeans paper, for me is that if there is really a right, I have to fight even I will be dead tomorrow, my brother is continue to fight. If he is dead, another also is going to continue. So the system for refugees is not created today, yesterday, before, so even I will be dead another person, people are continue the […], follow the system, this way for refugees. So we fight about our rights. And you will fight that we will get right. We will not fight … You have some rights but you don´t have all total right, but you have.. you fight about your right. You can´t fight right for another person if that is conceding to you. So I can´t say to beat the people or to cross a car or cross shops to say that is my right. No! Everybody has it own right, so you have to follow your right. I have to speak, I have to shout, give me this, this, I want this … so … I like … and I … all these things I said to europeans government, german government to see our situation and also to help us and also… I am happy also there is some supporters, some activist, some people who are giving us some, always donations, food clothes, they think about our situation more so I say for them thanks, thanks and God blessing everybody and God leave them long life and also God give them long fortune. I happy to all people who are giving us donations, are helping us and asking about our situation, they want to help. Like you, like she, you want also to help us, because you are looking always .. the situation are always bad, going down, going down. So that why I say thank you for everybody who support us and who are helping us. Thank you so much.”

Statement: Anonymous (Berlin)

“Why we don´t have this right to have our own movement?’ We are in December, after one year in Oranienplatz. I just like to speak about the situation at the moment. For the movement from the inside, outside, the last thing that happened around was for example they treat us about kicking us out from the Oplatz and also the Einsatz by the police that happened in the school last night – not last night, the day before, and we, me also in between of other people we couldn´t understand that. When there is some political demands none of them is satisfied. Why we don´t have this right to have our own movement? And the way we face always from the police or from the government or politician is trying to find some way to ignore or avoid or to make happy end for us. The people here, that´s my experience, they try to somehow solve the problem, personal problem of the people to just finish the movement and for me as a person who is political activist it is not understandable because if you solve some people problem that doesn´t mean that the problem is solved. If I just start to think about the problems, not just the stay in Kreuzberg or Berlin it would go to the Germany, european wide you see all, everything is related, this new relations between the government here and government around. Like just some days ago with Türkei, they made an agreement about giving them freedom of movement to the citizens of Turkey, but on the other hand, like other agreements with Nigeria-Embassy or Afghan- Embassy they want to keep the refugee there as much as possible out of Germany. So me as a person who comes from Iran just thought that, you know after this what will happen to the refugees, to the people who really have to escape from the border of Turkey and most of these people from Afghanistan and Iran go this border. So I don´t know, everything seems gets worse and worse. But all resistance also finds more and more problem. This is something that is not at all acceptable. And I don´t know what they expect…. For example if they can finish here everything, the discrimination will not be finished. So I hope not everything goes to this point that gets so much radical or so violent. This is not something that the people here want, one year, two years, fighting here shows that we are so much peaceful, so against war we have all experience, of war, discrimination: All these problems, domination, colonialism. So we are not the people who want to reproduce this problem. If they don´t let the people who are so peaceful in this right place to fight against all these problems, in a democratic peaceful way.. I don´t know what they expect, they expect that the people, the other I don´t maybe some extremist continue this fight, or what they want to do actually this is the question for me.”

Statement: Firas Alshater

“Hallo, ich bin Firas Alshater, heute mit euch will ich einfach eine kleine Geschichte erzählen und, warum bin ich hier. Ich bin Firas, ich hab in Syrien Schauspieler studiert, ich hab in meiner Heimat Syrien, alles was möglich ist für normale Menschen. Ich habe meine Wohnung, ich habe mein zuhause, aber leider auch in meiner Heimat, gab es Diktatur, der ist auch bis jetzt dort und gab es auch manche Terroristen Gruppen, und wegen den gibt es Krieg und deswegen musste ich meine Heimat verlassen und hier in Deutschland sein. Man verlässt seine Heimat nicht einfach so, sondern es gibt immer einen Grund. Warum sollte man seine Heimat verlassen? Und manchmal, der Grund ist groß, wie Krieg und manchmal gibt es auch noch einen anderen Grund, wie Hunger. Oder was es ist. Also viele Leute sagen jetzt in Europa und in Deutschland haben wir, wir haben hier eine Flüchtlingskrise, aber ich finde es einfach nur eine Solidaritätskrise. Wir müssen einfach den Leuten helfen, wir müssen einfach wissen warum, dass die Leute hierher gekommen sind. Bevor dass wir die Probleme hier lösen mit den Flüchtlingen, müssen wir ihre Probleme dort vor Ort lösen. Und wir müssen wissen solange dass es gibt Länder, die Waffen produzieren, die Waffen verkaufen und zu Diktaturen geben oder zu Terrorgruppen geben, dann müssen wir in Europa mehr und mehr und mehr Flüchtlinge aufnehmen. Und es ist einfach so, wir von hier gibt es etwas, was dort geschickt wurde und von dort gibt es Leute die hierher kommen wollen. Es ist einfach, wie gesagt, Solidaritätskrise, wir müssen nur einfach den anderen helfen und das war es. Ich danke euch und grüße von mir, Firas Alshater…”


 

Hello, I’m Firas Alshater, today I want to tell you a little story and why I am here. I am Firas, I studied in Syria as an actor, in my homeland Syria, I have everything possible for normal people. I have my flat, I have my home, but unfortunately, in my homeland, there was dictatorship, which is still there now and there were also some terrorist groups, and because of them there is war and so I had to flew from my home and be here in Germany. You don’t leave your home just like that, there is always a reason. Why should you leave home? And sometimes, the reason is big, such as war and sometimes there is also another reason, such as hunger. Or whatever it is. So many people say now in Europe and in Germany, we have, we have a refugee crisis, but I think it’s just a solidarity crisis. We just have to help the people, we simply need to know why the people have come here. Before we solve the problems here with the refugees, we need to solve their problems there on-site. And we need to know as long as there are countries that produce weapons, that sell weapons and give them to dictatorships or give them to terrorist groups, then we need to receive more and more and more Refugees in Europe. And it’s just so, here there is something that has been sent there, and from there there are people who want to come here. It’s easy, as I said, solidarity crisis, we must help others and that was it. Thank you and greetings from me, Firas Alshater…

I’ve been there for three and half year. I’ve done everything what they told me to done. I’ve been to normal school. I came here in Europe when I’m young. I lived there three years and half. I’ve done everything. I learned school. I have certificate. I have certificate for the, here they are used to call ‘Ausbildung’. Then the time when I finished my school they told me to move out their country. I came here in Germany. I thank German people they take me. They take my case. But I have one.. I have also problem in my future. Cause now I don’t see future, you know. The time when I was in Africa I had a problem. I moved from there, I came here. I think maybe this place Europe.. I mean in Europe, not in Germany cause now I … my life I see… is running, everywhere in Europe. I don’t see my future. So the main problem as… we as refugees we don’t have a future, you know. We don’t have a normal life as you people you used to live here, you know. We have different culture, different tribes, different… totally is different. But my point is: we need future. Especially me I need future. Cause I’ve been here – now I am running 6 years. But I don’t see the good system, I see the Babylon… it’s like Babylon system, you know. Cause they say, we take refugees, then we are inside they don’t help us and there is no alternative way to live. As in South Africa they take refugees, I’ve been there, they take refugees. They give you status to search work and they have work. But here, when you are outside the system you don’t have right. I tell you my real story. I’ve been stealer, I’ve been drug dealer, I’ve done everything in this six years in my life in Europe. So for me I see I come Europe not to solve my problem. I came Europe to become a criminal. And in my country I wasn’t in that kind of … criminal way or something else. For me, it is in my head, it is giving me stress to much, you know. But I think maybe these white people they changed to my mind to become a criminal and I don’t deserve it. That’s my real problem. I am here.. I say, thank Germany they take me, they give me this place. But I still, I don’t see future. My future.. I think anytime these German people they will say, hey, we don’t need you. Then I have to think another way where I can run, maybe another – Sweden, Canada, Australia, America. This is my original life, these things.. I’ve been here five years. The thing I see is: as a refugees we have to run everywhere. We don’t have right. You people you say we have right, but I don’t see the rights. That’s all.”

We -the revolutionary refugee movement- are fighting for 1.5 years on the streets of Germany to change ‘Residenzpflicht'(residence obligation), camps and deportation regulations. At the same time we are fighting to change the racist and colonial laws in Germany. Therefore, we also did a great demonstration and we marched from Duisburg to Berlin, because an immigrant committed suicide there. The refugee camps have an isolating character, and we refuse to accept the migration and refugee laws throughout Europe. We achieved some local successes, but these are not sufficient. We now want to spread our resistance across Europe. Police, government and Nazis have always attacked us because we are people from different regions of the world with different languages, Therefore, our existence has always bothered these institutions. But they have not managed to destroy our resistance, the resistance continues.

Statement: Anonymous (Berlin)

“My statement for today is: We are not here in Germany to be a problem to the people of Germany and to the german government. But we are here to survive. And we’ve really came a long way before we get to this point. How I personally and in behalf of my other colleagues would be really grateful if the people of Germany and the government of Germany can really assist us in times of our document -because we are legally permitted to stay. But we are having this problem not of allow to work which is a really big problem. And there is always this statement: A idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Because staying without doing anything then it’s like you are dying slowly. So and the best where we can really .. even the people from Germany and the german government can really see the best in us is by us giving us the opportunity to contribute positively to the society of Germany and the people of Germany. But if we are not given the opportunity – so how can we be recognized? So we need them to give us this opportunity to meet up to show what we have. Which I belief we are all talented one way or the other. But if the chances are not there how can we really make it? Because the situation it’s ..is something we can not just talk about. Hopefully – we don’t know what the future may bring. But we are still here and strong. But I think it would be more better and good if we are giving the opportunity and the chance. For me as a person I know for the german government it’s really difficult because presently there is a heavy load in Germany- I know! Not only has the refugees. I know people come from other different parts of Europe – now want to stay in Germany because they are one of the countries with the best economy now in Europe. I know they are really having this problem but I think they should consider ours as a part of the society, as part of the community. Me and my people would really appreciate this if they can really do it for us. I think I am done.”

I am a refugee, I left my country for security and political measures, and fleeing from politics that violate humanity. I came to Europe cause European believe in human rights which have been established there for long time. Unfortunately, I have faced lots of severe hardships after I made it to Greece. Part of it is the oppression against dark skin people, violating the refugee’s human rights, there is not any human rights for refugees in Greece. Like accommodation, or employment, or medical treatment. Even you don’t have the basic necessity of food sustain for your self and keep a life, or the freedom of moving freely in the country. Worst, having all avenues to be blocked to integrate refugees in European society’s regular life, and for long time I was suffering from exceptional harsh circumstance there. What forced me to leave to another European country, that would provide better human rights for a refugee, but unfortunately, there are no big differences between European countries. As far as violating and repressing the refugee’s right, slacking and delaying in processing and issuing residency papers for refugees, practicing unfair and unequal citizen right, preventing refugees from integrating freely within the European society. And put refugees in harsh circumstances, in isolation camps away from citizens and regular life, thus I’ve found my self in unending spins of whirl, feeling that I don’t have a normal existence in life, and all of my intellectual ambition died within me in a slow motion and some of my harsh experiences and suffering. After I’ve applied for asylum in Holland, is the unjustifiable rejection of my asylum application, after this rejection I’ve been faced by the harsh reality of endless suffering without papers in Europe which lays in being subject to be controlled based on color and being put in jail, and detention center for a long time. And not have any access as a refugee for a decent life, lacking all kind of psychological stability, living under constant fear that any time I could get arrested by any of the immigration’s polices or any other authorities in charge of controlling refugees , which put me under the feeling that you have fled oppression to a different kind of oppression.

Ik ben een vluchteling.
Ik verliet mijn land om veiligheidsredenen en vanwege de politieke maatregelen, ik vluchtte voor een politiek die de menselijkheid geweld aandoet.
Ik kwam naar Europa omdat Europeanen geloven in mensenrechten, die daar al lang geleden zijn ingesteld.
Ongelukkig genoeg heb ik me tegenover zeer ernstige problemen geplaatst gezien nadat ik in Griekenland was geraakt. Onderdeel hiervan is de onderdrukking van mensen met een zwarte huid, het schenden van de mensenrechten van een vluchteling. Er bestaan geen mensenrechten voor vluchtelingen in Griekenland. Zoals dat van huisvesting, werk en medische verzorging. Zelfs in de basisbehoefte aan voldoende voedsel om in leven te blijven wordt niet voorzoen, noch geniet je bewegingsvrijheid binnen het land.
Het ergst, alle wegen voor vluchtelingen om te integreren in het normale maatschappelijke leven in Europa zijn geblokkeerd, en lange tijd leed ik daar onder uitzonderlijk zware omstandigheden.
Wat me er toe dwong naar een ander Europees land te vertrekken, een dat zou voorzien in betere mensenrechten voor vluchtelingen. Maar jammer genoeg zijn er geen grote verschillen tussen de landen in Europa.
Als het gaat om het schenden en onderdrukken van het recht van een vluchteling, het vertragen en uitstellen van de procedure en het verstrekken van verblijfspapieren voor vluchtelingen, het unfair en ongelijk toepassen van het burgerrecht, en het verhinderen van vluchtelingen om vrij te integreren in de Europese maatschappij. Als het gaat om het brengen van vluchtelingen in wrede omstandigheden, in isolatiekampen weg van de burgers en het normale leven.
Zo geraakte ik in een oneindige beweging van draaikolken, met het gevoel geen normaal bestaan te hebben, en zo stierf elke intellectuele ambitie in slow motion in mij als gevolg van mijn wrede ervaringen en lijden.
Nadat ik in Nederland asiel had aangevraagd, is daar de niet te rechtvaardigen afwijzing van mijn asielverzoek, waarna ik ben geconfronteerd met de wrede werkelijkheid van het eindeloze lijden van het zonder papieren in Europa zijn, dat erin bestaat altijd subject te zijn van controle op basis van huidkleur, van in de gevangenis te worden geworpen en voor lange tijd in een detentiecentrum.
En terwijl ik als vluchteling geen enkele toegang heb tot een normaal leven, mij elke vorm van psychologische stabiliteit ontbreekt, levend in voortdurende angst om elk moment gearresteerd te worden door een van de immigratieagenten of andere autoriteiten belast met het controleren van vluchtelingen, bekruipt mij het gevoel dat ik gevlucht ben voor onderdrukking om in een ander soort onderdrukking terecht te komen.

“Today I am very happy to see you to come to visit us and to see our situation. Because we have very bad situation and every day our situation is going up and going very bigger, it became biggest and we are near to … next month it will be snow so we think, more think, to get gases for to make hot tents, we need more food also we have needed to eat because hungry man is an angry man as I told you. Also… Just now also I am hungry, really I am hungry, I want to eat something even you have in your bag maybe you can give me something to eat. I think that … Also I think the situation not for myself also I think for everybody in this camp the situation went to change and we will get work, we will get work permit also I want also that this camp will be closed and everybody is going to get a work permit and his house, his own house also.. and also to be far from problems far from angry… maybe sometimes will be sick and how to go to the hospital to buy medicine? It is a problem… Because if you haven´t any money, you can´t go to the hospital and if a man became totally sick we will call ambulance and ambulance come to take him to [?hospital?]. Also we think we have very serious problem in this camp also. Even I have important things in this camp also.. we have also 6100 Euro to pay about electricity. The next Monday they are going to cut the electricity. If there is no electricity it is very bad because we use electricity to charge our telephones, we use also… some of us have some CD´s and also have also some CD´s to see some films, african film, european film and something. But if there is no light how we can do? The situation become more.. also some if there is light you can maybe buy some electric machines to make hot tents, to protect us. Also if there is no light it is a big problem so we have very big situation about light also to have to pay, if we didn’t pay until next week they are going to cut. Also we have serious problem about the food also it is very a very big problem. Now, yesterday, yesterday two o´clock pm we ate, after 24 hours now is still now, how many hours? More than 24 hours, so we didn’t eat nothing. Maybe I don´t know if there is no money maybe tomorrow also we will eat or we will not eat. I don´t know, so that why we have very serious problems, but our first problem is to eat, to get – if you are, you eat- you will be more strong, you have power but if you didn´t eat you will be sick, you are lazy and you are feeling bad, so you are not strong, and also you have problems for eyes you think more things, more problems, so that is .. by the grace of god, the system will change and everything will be well and organized, by the grace of god. Everybody will get his own work, his own department, his own maybe cars, if you are working you have to buy car also. So I think by the grace of god everything will be nice and well. But I don´t know a thing, it will be tomorrow, so today maybe I have situation, maybe tomorrow I´m ok. So by the grace of God everything will be ok and nice. And we are fighting! We are here to fight for ever. Our demands are how to get right to stay, right to work, right to read, right to go to school, right to also rent your own house, right to work and right to don´t think about people or to ask them people or to ask, to think about any donation for any other people, so you fight to get our rights. Because if there is really right in Europe, we are fighting about our rights. If they say that you don´t have any right, so everybody is going back to Africa to leave europeans paper, for me is that if there is really a right, I have to fight even I will be dead tomorrow, my brother is continue to fight. If he is dead, another also is going to continue. So the system for refugees is not created today, yesterday, before, so even I will be dead another person, people are continue the […], follow the system, this way for refugees. So we fight about our rights. And you will fight that we will get right. We will not fight … You have some rights but you don´t have all total right, but you have.. you fight about your right. You can´t fight right for another person if that is conceding to you. So I can´t say to beat the people or to cross a car or cross shops to say that is my right. No! Everybody has it own right, so you have to follow your right. I have to speak, I have to shout, give me this, this, I want this … so … I like … and I … all these things I said to europeans government, german government to see our situation and also to help us and also… I am happy also there is some supporters, some activist, some people who are giving us some, always donations, food clothes, they think about our situation more so I say for them thanks, thanks and God blessing everybody and God leave them long life and also God give them long fortune. I happy to all people who are giving us donations, are helping us and asking about our situation, they want to help. Like you, like she, you want also to help us, because you are looking always .. the situation are always bad, going down, going down. So that why I say thank you for everybody who support us and who are helping us. Thank you so much.”

“I’m from Sudan and my first asylum was in Netherlands. I’m living now since six years, three years in the system, three years out the system. And then, the life to be out the system, or to be without documents, it is not easy for me as a Refugee. Why I’m here in Europe? Because I want protection from the government and war. There is no freedom, there is no humanity rights. And then I arrived to Europe. Already, I was believing in Europe, I will find human rights. And actually I found something different. Europe believes it is the human rights. That they made the human rights. I lived on the streets. It is not possible for person, to live in the street without anything, without knowing where to go, without friends.

At the same time, if you get arrested without documents, then they bring you in the jail. And then, for how long, you don’t know. They can keep you till two years. And maybe try to send you back. Also, in my place, in Darfur, is still not safe. If I go back, I will die. And then, they let me free. I come back to the streets. That happened to me, two times. Where are the rights? Where is the humanity? Where are the human rights? So that’s mean, I lost my right as a human person. In my country, and in Europe.”

Ik kom uit Soedan en mijn eerste asielaanvraag was in Nederland. Ik woon hier nu 6 jaar, 3 jaar in de asielprocedure en 3 jaar erbuiten. Het leven buiten de asielprocedure, of het leven zonder geldige identiteitspapieren is voor mij als vluchteling niet makkelijk. Waarom ik hier in Europa ben? Omdat ik beschermd wil worden tegen mijn regering en tegen de oorlog. Er is waar ik vandaan kom geen vrijheid, er zijn geen mensenrechten. En toen kwam ik in Europa aan. Ik geloofde al in Europa, ik zou er mensenrechten vinden. En dan vond ik er in feite iets heel anders. Europa gelooft in mensenrechten. Zij denkt dat zij ze heeft uitgevonden. Ik leefde op straat. Het is onmogelijk voor een mens om op straat te leven zonder iets, niet wetend waar te gaan, zonder vrienden.
Bovendien, als je zonder papieren wordt opgepakt, brengen ze je naar de gevangenis. En dan weet je niet voor hoe lang. Ze kunnen je 2 jaar vasthouden. En misschien je proberen terug te sturen. Terwijl het in mijn stad, Darfur, nog steeds niet veilig is. Als ik terugga, sterf ik. En toen lieten ze me vrij. Ik stond terug op straat. Dat overkwam me 2 keer. Waar zijn de rechten? Waar is de menselijkheid? Waar zijn de mensenrechten? Dat is het gemene, ik verloor mijn recht om mens te zijn. In mijn land, en in Europa.

Statement: Anonymous (Berlin)

“Why we don´t have this right to have our own movement?’ We are in December, after one year in Oranienplatz. I just like to speak about the situation at the moment. For the movement from the inside, outside, the last thing that happened around was for example they treat us about kicking us out from the Oplatz and also the Einsatz by the police that happened in the school last night – not last night, the day before, and we, me also in between of other people we couldn´t understand that. When there is some political demands none of them is satisfied. Why we don´t have this right to have our own movement? And the way we face always from the police or from the government or politician is trying to find some way to ignore or avoid or to make happy end for us. The people here, that´s my experience, they try to somehow solve the problem, personal problem of the people to just finish the movement and for me as a person who is political activist it is not understandable because if you solve some people problem that doesn´t mean that the problem is solved. If I just start to think about the problems, not just the stay in Kreuzberg or Berlin it would go to the Germany, european wide you see all, everything is related, this new relations between the government here and government around. Like just some days ago with Türkei, they made an agreement about giving them freedom of movement to the citizens of Turkey, but on the other hand, like other agreements with Nigeria-Embassy or Afghan- Embassy they want to keep the refugee there as much as possible out of Germany. So me as a person who comes from Iran just thought that, you know after this what will happen to the refugees, to the people who really have to escape from the border of Turkey and most of these people from Afghanistan and Iran go this border. So I don´t know, everything seems gets worse and worse. But all resistance also finds more and more problem. This is something that is not at all acceptable. And I don´t know what they expect…. For example if they can finish here everything, the discrimination will not be finished. So I hope not everything goes to this point that gets so much radical or so violent. This is not something that the people here want, one year, two years, fighting here shows that we are so much peaceful, so against war we have all experience, of war, discrimination: All these problems, domination, colonialism. So we are not the people who want to reproduce this problem. If they don´t let the people who are so peaceful in this right place to fight against all these problems, in a democratic peaceful way.. I don´t know what they expect, they expect that the people, the other I don´t maybe some extremist continue this fight, or what they want to do actually this is the question for me.”
