The European Network Against Racism (ENAR) condemns the eviction by police forces of 250 asylum seekers and Roma from a former school building in Berlin, Germany, in which they have been living for one and a half years. The eviction started on 24 June and is ongoing.
While the living conditions in the school have been more than inadequate, it has become a place of self-organized political protest for refugees and enables them to break the isolation of migrant retention and detention centres.
ENAR stands in solidarity with this protest, which opposes laws that restrict the movement of asylum seekers and their access to the labour market in Germany, in clear contravention of human rights, and demands a stop to deportations of migrants.
