Statement on yesterday’s developments in Obrežje

refugis welcome

On Monday morning 21.09.2015 at 00:30 twelve volunteers were detained on the Slovenian border crossing PMP Obrežje when they were trying to pass it, after they brought material help and volunteered in the refuge camp on the border on Sunday 20.09.2015. The police officer took their documents and they were waiting for an hour before he explained to them why they are being held. He said they will all be fined for offense of ZVDM-2 law for “unjustifiably containment or movement on the border crossing”. After the explanation they were held there for additional two hours and each of them received the fine. Non of them were given the chance to explain why they were present on the border area even tough the border police directed them where they can personally deliver material goods for the refugees on Sunday. Three of the people were non Slovenian citizens whose documents were confiscated with the explanation that it is necessary to insure the implementation of the given sanctions. Two of the people were volunteering as interpreters during the day and also assisted the police to communicate with the refugees. They are not getting their documents until they pay the fine which can take a lot of time because they want to write an appeal but they do not wish to be held in Slovenia until the procedure is finished.

It is obvious that this is pressure on activist and all that are trying to help refugees that are stuck in impossible circumstances on no mans land between border crossings. This is criminalisation of self-organized people that help refugees – they are also doing self-organized actions. Supporters, like refugees, are being divided based on nationality and sex. By doing this the state is covering their own mistakes, as they are unable to react in the situation and thinking out of legal frames that are totally useless on the quickly changing terrain.

+++ Izjava za javnost ob včerajšnjem dogajanju na Obrežju +++

Meje povsod, svobode nikjer!

V ponedeljek, 21.09.2015, ob 00:30 zjutraj je dvanajst prostovoljcev prečkalo slovensko mejo PMP Obrežje po tem, ko smo v nedeljo pripeljali materialno pomoč in voluntirali v začasnem begunskem taboru na meji. Policist nam je odvzel dokumente in nas zadržal na mejnem prehodu. Po eni uri čakanja nam je obrazložil, da bo vsakemu od nas izrečena globa zaradi “neupravičenega zadrževanja oziroma gibanja na območju mejnega prehoda” (kršitev 5. točke 1. odstavka 45. člena ZVDM-2). Po obrazložitvi so nas na meji zadrževali nadaljni dve uri in vsakemu od nas je bila osebno izročena globa. Ob vročitvi glob nihče ni dobil možnosti, da obrazloži svoje zadrževanje na obmejnem področju kljub temu, da so nas v nedeljo, 20.09.2015, ko smo pripeljali materialno pomoč, sami usmerili na območje tabora, kjer jo lahko osebno izročimo. V postopku so bili prisotni tudi trije tuji državljani, ki so jim zasegli dokumente z obrazložitvijo, da je to potrebno zaradi zavarovanja izvršitve izrečene sankcije. Dokumenti jim bodo vrnjeni, ko plačajo globo, ker pa želijo podati pritožbo zoper izrečeno globo, so njihovi dokumenti zadržani na meji.

Očitno je, da gre za pritisk na aktiviste in aktivistke ter vse ostale, ki poskušajo pomagati beguncem, ki so obtičali v nemogočih razmerah na nikogaršnjem ozemlju med mejnima prehodoma. Gre za kriminalizacijo samoorganiziranih ljudi, ki nudijo pomoč beguncem (tolmačenje, humanitarna pomoč, informiranje itd.). Kakor se deli begunce po nacionalni pripadnosti in spolu, se skuša razdvojiti tudi njihove podpornike. Država s tem prikriva lastne napake, saj je nezmožna odziva na situacijo na terenu in delovati izven pravno formalnih okvirov, ki v realni, hitro spreminjajoči se situaciji, povsem odpovejo.
