The Shameful Treatment of Refugees in Berlin Continues

Link to the FB page of the Refugee Info-Point on Oranien Platz. Got there. Ask questions. Donate food, clothing and first-aid materials, please.It has been nearly three-quarters of a year since the signing of the Oranien Platz Agreement facilitated by Berlin’s Senator for Integration Dilek Kolat (SPD). The inevitable disappointment of the refugees’ and their supporters’ expectations is taking it’s course. We must rethink EU immigration and refugee policy. The suffering is unspeakable, and we could stop it if we wanted to.

Frontex logoThe unworthy treatment of the rest of the world has to stop. If we continue with the politics of discrimination, exploitation, and isolation the price we all will pay will much higher, than the in vestment that would be necessary to feed, house, and provide medical care, and access to education/training for the world’s refugees. It is not only in our best interest, it our moral obligation. Any deliberation on the matter is deeply wrong, and will be pay dearly for our atrocity.
