Horgoš-hunger strike updates

27.07.2016.

On the 5th day of the hunger strike, 4  people had  a collapse and were brought to hospital. Three of them are back in the hunger strike now, one person is still in the hospital because of heart problems.

Yesterday the Commissariat and the minister for social policy  tried to persuade people to put their names on a list, promising them a possibility to wait for a legal entry to Hungary. This option was also offered  to people  in the parks in Belgrade in the recent days without any further explanation. The base of this offer is very questionable, specially after the latest statement of Orban, where he said that hungary does not need a single migrant..

Apart from the demand for freedom of movement, there is the new demand that the hungerstrikers-camp, should be recognized as a third camp (apart from Horgos camp and Kelebija camp) from where a certain number of people per day can enter Hungary legally.

The atmosphere is very tense due to the hard conditions, still a big number of people is confident and want to continue the strike until they reach their goals.

More police is around in the area where the hungerstrikers are located. There are all in all 3 cars, and a empty police van, that can transport a high number of people. Since the spot is in a border zone where a special permission is needed, people in solidarity might be controlled when they approach the hungerstrikers . Be persistent and creative!

Lets spread the spirit of solidarity, understanding the hard conditions of the struggle of the hungerstrikers. As for us there is no solution “inside” of the system, but we need to reach freedom with the abolition of borders and capital. Locals and migrants – unite the struggle!

Petog dana štrajka glađu, četvoro ljudi je kolapsiralo i bilo odvedeno u bolnicu. Nakon tretmana, troje ih se vratilo u štrajk, jedna osoba je i dalje u bolnici zbog slabog rada srca.

Juče su predstavnici Komesarijata za izbeglice i ministar za socijalna pitanja  nagovarali ljude da se potpišu na spisak čekanja, obećavajući im mogućnost legalnog ulaska u Mađarsku. Isti pritisak je proteklih dana vršen i na ljude u parkovima u Beogradu, bez dodatnog objašnjenja o kakvoj proceduri se radi. Osnovanost ove “ponude” je veoma sumnjiva, pogotovo nakon poslednje izjave Orbana, da Madjarska ne želi primiti ni jednog jedinog migranta.

Pored opšteg zahteva za slobodu kretanja za sve, novi zahtev ljudi koji su učestvovali u protestnom maršu i nakon toga krenuli u štrajk glađu je da  njihova grupa bude prihvaćena kao treći “kamp” (pored Horgoša i Kelebije) iz kog bi određen broj ljudi svakodnevno mogao legalno ući u Mađarsku. Atmosfera je veoma napeta zbog ekstremnih uslova, ali ipak i dalje veliki broj ljudi istraje da nastavi štrajk do ispunjenja zahteva.

Prisustvo policije (24 h) je povećano na poljani gde ljudi štrajkuju. Putnički autobus, nekoliko policijskih kola i marica  su u pripravnosti za transport većeg broja ljudi. Pošto se lokacija nalazi u takozvanoj graničnoj zoni, ljudi koji žele izraziti  solidarnost svojim prisustvom mogu biti legitimisani i uklonjeni. Budite istrajni i kreativni u nalaženju načina uspostavljenja komunikacije sa ljudima u protestu.

Za nas ne postoji rešenje unutar sistema, zato je potrebno da se izborimo za slobodu, ukidanjem granica i monopola kapitala. Neka se širi duh solidarnosti! Lokalno stanovništvo i migranti– ujedinjeni u zajedničkoj borbi!
