Kriminaliserung erfolgreicher Zaunkletterer

… well Danny a 23 year old Cameroonian for sure won’t be found in the statistics after he was beaten up to unconsciousness and then pushed back to Morocco by officers of the Guardia Civil two days ago on the 15th of October, as this video shows:

He lost a kidney and is half paralyzed now.

2 attempts of migrants to enter Melilla in 2 days

Already one day ago on the 14th of October a first group of migrants tried to cross the border of Melilla. On both days more than 250 people managed to enter Spanish territory, where they were beaten up cruelly by the Guardia Civil and pushed back immediately through the fences to Morocco. Afterwards they were deported to Rabat and Fes. Many were wounded by the police forces and the barbed wires. 18 heavily injured people needed to be brought to hospital (in a self-organised way, because why should the authorities take care of people when they’ve already beaten up them?). Only 17 persons managed to enter Melilla and to stay there in the CETI.

„Niemand wusste, ob wir ankommen würden

Durch die Wüste, übers Mittelmeer, ins Gefängnis, in die Schule: Moha kam als 15 Jahre alter Flüchtling von Somalia nach München. Deutschland braucht Menschen wie ihn. […]“

„Beim Freitagsgebet in der Moschee musterten die Kämpfer unter den Wollmasken uns Jugendliche. Alle, die stark genug zum Kämpfen schienen, mussten mitkommen. Sogar 14-Jährige wie ich. Zum Glück war ich für mein Alter sehr klein und dünn geraten. Niemand von uns Jugendlichen wollte zum Töten ausziehen. Wir wollten lieber Fußball spielen und Filme schauen, so wie früher, bevor die islamistischen Shabaab-Milizen unsere Stadt besetzten und Kämpfer aus Afghanistan, Arabien und Nordamerika durch die Straßen patrouillierten. Sie verboten uns das Fernsehen und die Musik. Alle Frauen mussten sich verschleiern. Und Fußball spielen durften wir nur noch in langen Hosen.“ […]

Anti-Folter-Komitee des Europarats kritisiert unakzeptable Bedingungen

The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) has published today the report on its eleventh visit to Greece. The visit took place two years after the CPT had issued a public statement in which it had expressed serious concerns regarding the lack of effective action to tackle systemic deficiencies concerning the conditions of detention of irregular migrants and the situation in the prisons. Regrettably, the findings of the 2013 visit demonstrate clearly that the situation has not improved. Further, the problem of ill-treatment by the police appears to be growing and there is little evidence that allegations of ill-treatment are investigated promptly and thoroughly, leading to some police officers believing they can act with impunity.

The report describes the totally unacceptable conditions in which irregular migrants are held in police establishments all over the country for prolonged periods.

Schlagloch Rassismus

Dieser Tage wird es wieder mal sehr deutlich: Es gibt zwei Sorten von Toten. Einige sind uns mehr wert als andere, die weit weg sind.

Es gibt kein unwertes Leben; das sagt sich leicht. Doch wird der Wert eines Lebens ganz unterschiedlich bemessen. Offensichtlich wird dies spätestens, wenn es um den Wert eines Toten geht.

Mystery of the Egyptian raids in Libya

Libyen: Bombardierung durch ägyptische Luftwaffe und Marine?

On October 16, the independent, leftist As-Safir daily carried the following report by Moustafa Bassiouni: The issue of the Egyptian military intervention in Libya remains a mystery as reflected by the leaks of Egyptian officials who indicated that raids had been carried out against locations of the Islamic groups in Libya followed by a presidential denial of these pieces of information.

According to the Egyptian officials, this operation came in response to a demand on the part of the Libyan government based in Tobruk, which enjoys an international recognition since the Islamists seized control of Tripoli. The two Egyptian officials who refused to reveal their names said that this operation included the use of Egyptian warships, which served as a command center facing the coasts of Tobruk adding that this operation might extend from 3 to 6 months.
