Viele Kommunen in den USA bieten Einwanderern ohne Papiere Schutz. Der texanische Gouverneur Abbott droht ihnen mit drakonischen Strafen.

Dorothea Hahn

NEW YORK taz | Bei der Verfolgung von papierlosen EinwandererInnen geht Texas voran. Am Sonntag unterschrieb Gouverneur Greg Abbott ein Gesetz, das das bislang schärfste Vorgehen der Trump-Ära gegen Sanctuary Cities postuliert – gegen Städte, die papierlosen Einwanderern Schutz bieten.

Vom 1. September an sollen alle lokalen Behörden – von den Bürgermeistern bis hin zur Polizei – gezwungen werden, mit der Einwanderungspolizei ICE, einer Bundesbehörde, zu kollaborieren. Sie sollen ausländisch aussehende Menschen auch ohne Anlass auffordern, ihre Papiere zu zeigen. Falls die lokalen Behörden dazu – und zur Auslieferung von Papierlosen an die ICE – nicht bereit sind, riskieren sie bis zu 25.000 Dollar Geldstrafe oder Gefängnis.

Noborderkitchen | 28.04.2017

Yesterday one of the squats we supported was taken away by the cops and the Alpha Bank and turned from a home into an old abandoned unused building again. All people were arrested and detained for a day and might face charges for trespassing and destroying of property. Now many people are out on the street, with no safe place to go.

What happened yesterday leaves us sad and incredibly angry. What was destroyed by the state and capitalism was not just a building. It was a home. It was a community. It was a place for friendship, for solidarity, for struggling together against this border and this system that creates them.

The squat was not a perfect place. There was always rubbish lying around, the sound of the power factory next door was the lullaby and the toilet was rarely cleaned. But still we loved it.

Il Manifesto | 25.04.2017

Luigi Manconi

Estate 2016. Ventimiglia, estremo occidente della costa ligure: centinaia di migranti sostano al confine tra Italia e Francia. Cercano di varcarlo, per continuare il loro viaggio, ma l’Europa ha chiuso loro quella porta. Il campo della Croce rossa italiana non riesce più ad accogliere tutti, prendono forma campi di fortuna, allestiti da organizzazioni umanitarie, dove volontari prestano aiuto e assistenza. Félix Croft, europeo di cittadinanza francese, è uno di questi. Di fronte a una simile mobilitazione il sindaco, per motivi di «igiene e decoro», emette un’ordinanza (di recente provvidenzialmente revocata) che vieta la distribuzione di cibo e bevande ai migranti.

La Repubblica | 24.04.2017

L’abbraccio con la fidanzata Alexandra e con i genitori per il giornalista espulso dalle autorità turche. Decine di persone nello scalo mobilitate per l’arrivo del giornalista scarcerato dalle autorità turche. „Non mi hanno torto un capello: ma quello che è successo è illegale“

di ROSARIO DI RAIMONDO

BOLOGNA – “Adesso? Me ne vado a mangiare. Dopo lo sciopero della fame ne ho bisogno…”. Gabriele Del Grande è libero, è arrivato a Bologna con un volo della Turkish Airlines, ma non è un turista qualsiasi. Nella sala degli “arrivi” dell’aeroporto Marconi un applauso spontaneo accoglie il giornalista detenuto in Turchia dal 9 aprile, per non si sa ancora quale reato. Ad accoglierlo ci sono i genitori, amici, cronisti, telecamere, forze dell’ordine, passeggeri e curiosi. E anche il ministro degli Esteri Angelino Alfano, che esulta: “La migliore vigilia della nostra Liberazione”. “Non mi è stato torto un capello – dice Gabriele, affiancato dalla compagna Alexandra – ma quello che è successo è illegale, è una violenza istituzionale. Il mio pensiero va a tutti i giornalisti ancora in carcere, in condizioni peggiori della mia”.

Exclusive: Broken limbs, facial injuries and severe bruising found to be ‘typical injuries’ sustained by unaccompanied minors at the hands of officers in Calais, research finds

Refugees sleeping rough in and around the Calais area are subject to “endemic” levels of police brutality on a daily basis, an alarming report has revealed, amid concerns that the region is on “police lockdown” in efforts to deter refugees from the area.

Research published exclusively by The Independent shows that displaced people, including scores of unaccompanied children, are experiencing routine violence, with some reporting having limbs dislocated as a result of police beatings, while others had tear gas sprayed directly in their faces.

Our dear friend Gabriele del Grande, human rights activist, journalist and documentary filmmaker, was arrested on April 10, in Hatay / Turkey. He was doing a research for his new book-project about Syrian refugees. Since four days now, he is on a hunger strike, struggling for his freedom.

Gabriele has been active since years, monitoring deaths of refugees in the Mediterranean, on his blog ‘Fortress Europe’ and later focussing on the complexities of the war in Syria and its effects on the Syrian civil society and the refugees in Europe. All of us loved his documentary “On the bride’s side” in which he combined documentary filming with activism in his own way, struggling for another world.

ANSA.it | 18.04.2017

(ANSA) – Rome, April 18 – An Italian reporter arrested on the Turkey-Syria border April 10 phoned Italy Tuesday to say he was well but that he would start a hunger strike to demand his rights be respected tonight. „I’m well, they haven’t touched a hair on my head but I can’t phone, they seized my cellphone and belongings, although they’re not charging me with anything,“ said Gabriele Del Grande using the administrative detention centre’s landline, saying he was surrounded by four policemen.

Human rights campaigner Del Grande said he would start a hunger strike tonight „and I urge everyone to mobilise to demand my rights be respected“. He said „my documents are in order, but I have not been allowed to name a lawyer, nor have I been informed when this detention will end. „The reason for the arrest is linked to the content of my work. I have been subjected to questioning in this regard. I have been able to phone only after days of protests“.

There had been no news from the journalist since he was arrested by Turkish authorities on the Syria border eight days ago, his family said Monday.
