Since this morning, in Lampedusa many Erithreans are protesting one more time because they refuse to leave their fingerprints and thus to apply for asylum in Italy. We strongly support their protest, and we wish to opens a reflection on a few other issues:

  1. The regularization of the journeys and the possibility of travelling safely and to any destination.
  2. Once again we need to ask ourselves: why do these people have decided to leave their own countries? What is the role of the Western Governments in the destablization of entire geographical areas, in the weapons’ sale and production, in the historical robbery of resources in the “third world”?
  3. The third issue is related to Lampedusa: why this small island must be subject to such political, social and mediatic pression? Although Lampedusa has received medals and International award and it was even candidate for the Nobel Prize for Peace, it still has uninhabitable schools, a very precarious healthcare, a very expensive and difficult connection with the mainland, a wholly militarized territory and many more problems.

Italien hat nach Kritik der EU an der schleppenden Registrierung von Bootsflüchtlingen ein zweites Aufnahmezentrum eingerichtet.

Dieser sogenannte „Hotspot“ liege in Trapani auf Sizilien, teilte Innenminister Alfano in Rom mit. Weitere Zentren sollen in den nächsten Tagen in Pozzallo auf Sizilien und in Tarent in Apulien öffnen. Bisher gab es nur ein italienisches Aufnahmezentrum auf der Mittelmeerinsel Lampedusa. Eigentlich sollten bis Jahresende in Italien sechs solcher Zentren eingerichtet werden.

In diesem Jahr trafen rund 150.000 Flüchtlinge auf dem Seeweg in Italien ein, rund 20.000 weniger als im Vorjahr. Mehr als 820.000 kamen in Griechenland an. Nach Angaben des UNO-Flüchtlingshilfswerks erreichten insgesamt mehr als eine Million Flüchtlinge in diesem Jahr die Europäische Union.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras met German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the sidelines of a European Union summit on migration in Brussels Friday and reassured her that screening centers for migrants being set up on Aegean islands, the so-called hot spots, will be ready in two months’ time.

The meeting came on the second day of a two-day summit that saw both Tsipras and his Turkish counterpart Ahment Davutoglu, who also attended, come under pressure over their handling of a migrant influx heading from Africa and Asia into Europe. Merkel was said to have been critical of Greek delays in setting up hot spots on five Greek islands.

Lampedusa, il primo hotspot voluto dall’Europa

«Migranti in strada, situazione igienica al collasso»

Cronaca – Decine di cittadini eritrei stanno protestando per le vie dell’isola. A darne notizia è il collettivo Askavusa: «Il motivo è sempre lo stesso – dichiarano -. Non vogliono essere identificate perché non vogliono rimanere in Italia». Nel frattempo, sott’accusa la situazione sanitaria nel centro. Guarda le foto

di Simone Olivelli

Nuove proteste dei migranti, stamattina, a Lampedusa. A darne notizia è il collettivo Askavusa: «Il motivo è sempre lo stesso – dichiara Giacomo Sferlazzo, uno gli attivisti -. Queste persone non vogliono essere identificate perché non vogliono rimanere in Italia». I manifestanti, infatti, sono tutti ospiti dell’hotspot che negli scorsi mesi ha aperto sull’isola. I nuovi centri, nelle intenzioni dell’Unione europea, dovrebbero servire all’identificazione dei migranti, così da consentire di definire quali tra essi – fondamentale, in tal senso, è la nazionalità – possano rientrare nelle quote di ridistribuzione, che l’Ue ha previsto nel tentativo di ripartire il peso del fenomeno migratorio tra i vari paesi.

Die EU-Kommission macht bei der Registrierung einreisender Flüchtlinge ernst: Rom soll seinen Beamten bei der Fingerabdruck-Abnahme Zwangsmaßnahmen erlauben. Den EU-Staaten soll Grenzschutzhilfe notfalls auch aufgezwungen werden können.

Italien soll nach Vorstellung der EU-Kommission bei der Abnahme von Fingerabdrücken zur Registrierung einreisender Flüchtlinge notfalls auch Zwangsmaßnahmen anwenden. Italien brauche „einen zuverlässigeren Rechtsrahmen“, der auch „den Einsatz von Gewalt“ erlauben müsse, erklärte die Kommission. Es müsse „Maßnahmen zum längeren Festhalten von Flüchtlingen geben, die sich der Abnahme verweigern“.

Hotspot, l’Ue all’Italia: prendere le impronte ai migranti anche con l’uso della forza

Bruxelles striglia il nostro Paese: „Solo uno dei sei hotspot designati è pienamente operativo, a Lampedusa. La Commissione si aspetta che altri due centri, Pozzallo e Porto Empedocle siano aperti a giorni“. Alfano: procedura „irragionevole e ingiusta, ok alla bozza Ue ma con i rimpatri e i ricollocamenti“

Bruxelles chiede all’Italia „un’accelerazione“ nel „dare cornice legale alle attività di hotspot, in particolare per permettere l’uso della forza per la raccolta delle impronte e prevedere di trattenere più a lungo i migranti che oppongono resistenza“. E‘ quanto si legge nel rapporto della Commissione Ue sull’Italia.

Greece is expected to come under significant pressure over its response to the refugee crisis at the European Union leaders’ summit on Thursday and Friday.

According to the meeting’s draft conclusions, which have been seen by Kathimerini, leaders will call for better monitoring of the EU’s outer borders and the functioning of so-called “hot spots” from where refugees can be relocated.

The draft conclusions also call for a series of actions to be taken by member-states to rectify such weaknesses ahead of the next European Council on February 18 and 19.

  • Arrivals on Lesbos registered, fingerprinted, documented
  • Few arrivals intend to claim asylum in Greece
  • Most head for fastest route north to Germany
  • Only unaccompanied children detained

By Karolina Tagaris

LESBOS, Greece, Dec 10 (Reuters) – The young Syrian woman beamed with relief: She had just been fingerprinted, photographed and granted permission to stay in Greece for six months to apply for asylum.

But Bushra had no intention of doing so, any more than thousands of other refugees and migrants registered that day on the island of Lesbos at Greece’s first and only EU-assisted centre for processing arrivals from Turkey.

Threat of suspension from Schengen zone prompts Athens to publish surprise legislation that opposition says will kill tourism on Aegean islands

Greece has enacted emergency legislation to facilitate the registration of the large number of refugees entering the country days after seeking help to reinforce its borders from the EU.

Deflecting withering criticism that it has not done enough to deal with the crisis, the government unveiled plans to establish five hotspots, or screening centres, on outlying Aegean islands where some 660,000 migrants and refugees have arrived this year.

A joint field visit conducted by the Greek authorities and Frontex will take place as soon as possible in order to work out the technical details of the deployment.
