Benefit for ‘ WE ARE HERE ‘ 28. juli

demo-geen-mens-is-illegaal-084Monday July 28th 2014: Benefit for ‘We Are Here’, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

The refugees from ‘We Are Here’ had to leave the building (former prison) at the Havenstraat. In a demonstration they walked to the Oosterpark, where they put a tent camp. There were many neighbours coming to bring food and mental support. People from Rampenplan came to bring hot soup as it started to rain. Police came to tell, that they would have to leave before 11 o.clock. Luckely not everybody was watching football, as a church in the neighbourhood offered shelter for the night. A new building is squatted by the refugees (Linneaushof 4) where the around 100 refugees stay now. ( the owner will probably start a procedure to get them out…..); they call it Vluchtopvang. And then there is still the place in south-east, de Vluchtgarage, (Kralenbeek 100) where over 100 refugees live in bad conditions. And this happening all in Amsterdam, where freedom should be the magic word!
