Corona-Reports from the refugee lagers in Brandenburg (East Germany)

“In such spaces social distancing as recommended by the health administration is practically not possible” – Break Isolation Group

International Women Space (IWS) is publishing Corona Lager Reports: these are audio reports and testimonies about the current situation in the Refugee Lagers, Heims and Reception Centers in Brandenburg given by women, who are living there. We invite you to listen to these reports, or read the transcripts and we encourage you to publish/share them and their content in your respective media/networks.

Due to the fact that the Lagers are located in remote spaces, far from the central
information structures, access to information is often delayed, unavailable or inadequate in the lagers and we practically NEVER hear anything from the inside. In this current situation, with the threat of the Coronavirus, this scenario is deadly. In such a pandemic, the immediate ability to act and the rapid implementation of instructions and measures around behavioural changes is vital for survival. Equally important is the continuous evaluation of these measures and reporting on them to ensure their effectiveness.

The Corona Lager Reports aim to accomplish this task and reveal realities on
impossible social distancing, inadequate or completely missing hand-washing facilities,
compulsive quarantine and the intense fear among the inhabitants of these Lagers.

The Corona Lager Reports were initiated by the BIG (Break Isolation Group) of International Women* Space. BIG is a self-organised refugee women group, that was formed in February 2019 as a result of the quest to share their own experiences as refugees in Germany in their own voices.

In order to prevent the deadly spread of Corona Virus in the Camps and in Brandenburg:

We demand the immediate closure of Lagers.
We demand the distribution of all women and refugees to safer accommodation.
We demand equal treatment of all humans regardless of their social status and race without any form of discrimination.

These voices need to be heard. Help us break the silence! Please share and spread these reports.

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.
