Lampedusa in Hamburg: Refugee protest on Church Summit (Kirchentag)

After the declaration "Lampedusa in Berlin" (interview to Bashir: https://vimeo.com/65158161 and to Ousmane: https://vimeo.com/65158162) made by refugees from the protest camp in Kreuzberg/Berlin, refugees in Hamburg who come from the same background adopted the declaration On the first of May they started a first public appearence during the nationwide church day in Hamburg. At 6 p.m. a group of more than 50 refugees gathered with banners and leaflets in the habour at a place where a part of the church day program takes place. They informed the public about their situation and called for solidarity. On Friday 3rd of May from 10 am the whole day the refugee group together with the "caravan for the rights of refugees and migrants" and the leftists from "atesh" will exercise a programm with information material and film screening and people to people talks during the whole day. The place where you can meet us on that day is Sandtorkai (Hafencity) in Front of the MS Anton (refugee boat project).

We invited the public and the media for critical awareness. We hope that on behalf of the churches in Hamburg a clear signal will be made against the catastrophic situation, the people are thrown into. The refugees are determined to join the germanwide refugee movement for self-determination and freedom.
below the declaration

Lampedusa in Hamburg
"We're here and we don't go back"

We are the Refugees coming from Italy with international protection but no rights. We survived the NATO bombings and the civil war in Libya, to be homeless in Italy.

Thousands of us are now in Germany in the same conditions: no housing, no access to social help, no access to the job market. We demand a political solution: "We are here and we don't go back!". We want the right to make a living here in Germany.

If we had found possible conditions in Italy we would stay there. There was no possibility to handle anymore. Italian government in the beginning of 2013 closed the programs of reception - the so-called Emergency North Africa - throwing the people basically on the street. 400-500 euro were given to each refugee with the suggestion to go away. Where? To northern Europe.

The problem is now on a european level being Germany one of the most powerful states, decision maker for the migrations and asylum policies in Europe. The Dublin System - with the rule that the Refugees "belong" to the first country in Europe they arrive - is aimed to deny the right of the Refugees to choose where they want to live. The same ideology
that's behind the Residenzpflicht.

We join the struggle the Refugees in Germany are bringing forwards since almost 20 years within the german asylum system. The fight is one.

We demand our rights as recognized refugees:
- the Dublin system must be ended
- housing, social and medical care
- working permit and access to education

Here in Hamburg we were accomodated in a camp for homeless people during the winter period.
This camp was closed beginning of April and we were pushed to the streets again. Our actual situation is catastrophic.

We don't want to live in the streets and forced to street prostitution, drug dealing or other criminal acts.
We unite, call for solidarity and demand our rights!

Der Kampf von Flüchtlingen braucht Geld!

Die Karawane ist maßgeblich auf Spenden angewiesen. Unsere Organisation besteht überwiegend aus Flüchtlingen, die (wenn überhaupt) nur über sehr geringe finanzielle Mittel verfügen. Aus diesem Grunde haben wir 2008 den „Förderverein Karawane e. V.” gegründet. Unser Verein ist als gemeinnützig anerkannt und kann deswegen auf Wunsch Spendenquittungen ausstellen, so dass sie steuerlich absetzbar sind. Wenn bei der Überweisung die Adresse mit angegeben wird, verschicken wir die Spendenbescheinigung automatisch spätestens am Anfang des Folgejahres.
