Flüchtlingsabwehr und Lagerpläne der EU
Internierungslager für AusländerInnen in Europa

Die Lagerpläne diverser europäischer PolitikerInnen und des UNHCR, die im Verlauf der Jahre 2003 und 2004 an die Öffentlichkeit gelangten und in Gremien der EU beraten wurden, sind Ausdruck einer präventiven und auch militärischen Interventionsstrategie im weltweiten Krieg gegen die Armen.

The European War Against Refugees

Rejection of Refugees and EU Projects for Refugee Camps

The first European projects for refugee camps in areas of war and crisis and at the borders of the EU were developed - not accidentally! - at the same time when the war in Irak started in spring 2003. Almost for one year the discussions about these projects took place only in circles of specialists. With the hustle and bustle in the media about the "case of Cap Anamur" (a German ship which took 37 African refugees on board in the Mediterranean) in July 2004 these projects suddenly came up again, caused by the proposal of the German minister of the interior, Schily - in quick agreement with his Italian colleague Pisanu - to build so-called "Auffanglager" (reception camps) for boat people in North Africa. The Italian government started in the beginning of October to send boat people, stranded in Italy, to Libya, were they were put into camps, financed by Italy, until their deportation. Meanwhile representatives of governments and enterprises of all important EU member states shake hands with Ghaddafi. Ghaddafi did hardly mean the freedom of movement for refugees and migrants when he said in his speech at the opening ceremony of a gas project with Berlusconi on the 7th of October 2004: "There is no life without mobility and mobility is brought about by energy." The German chancellor Schroeder declared on the 15th of October 2004 on German television, he would agree to his Libyan colleague that refugees should be supported in their countries of origin, which means: should be deported back and to be prevented from entering the "fortress Europe". The chronology of the debates about refugee camps in the year 2003 and since summer 2004 shows the inhumanity of the EU refugee policy, but also its internal contradictions.

Supported by Libya, the EU starts setting-up deportation and refugee camps in North Africa

'How can you forget the concentration camps built from Italian colonists in Libya into which they deported your great family - the Obeidats? Why don't you have the self-confidence, why don't you refuse?' the Libyan intellectual Abi Elkafi recently asked the Libyan ambassador in Rome in an open letter. He had initiated his country's orientation towards the West. 'The reason I write to you are the odious new concentration camps set up on Libya's soil on behalf of the Berlusconi government.'

(2004)

This text was written for the newspaper 'Movements of Migration' that was published by the Frassanito Network on the occassion of the European Social Forum 2004 in London.

Detention and deportation camps for foreigners have been in function in Europe for several decades. Today, with the externalisation projects and the degradation of asylum and migration policies, they become a major tool for these policies, and a place for migrants struggles and resistance.
