Second flight in four days for an Afghan man + suicide attemps – today June 23th

// Quick update : the plane left without him!! He is back in detention center, where he is supposed to be released tomorrow as it 45th day in detention is coming. He is not doing well but he has support from other detainees and is at least, not deported.

At airport the police beated him. There was around 8 people distributing flyers to passengers to explain them the situation. At boarding there was lots of police plus the Prefecture (which one, we don’t know, if somebody has clue please let us know). The pilot decided to leave quickly, while the man was locked up and masked at the end of the plane. He started to scream and passengers started to stand up in solidarity, making it impossible for the pilot to leave in safety who had to come back and leave the guy in France! //

Today June 23th, the afghan man, who had a deportation stopped last tuesday due to solidarity actions and his resistance in the plane, is having a second flight scheduled for 4.20pm today with Turkish Airlines, from Paris-CDG.

At time of writing, 11.50am, there was still no flights timetable of today in the cabins, which means that the concerned person just heard about it. In desesperation and in order to stop his deportation, the person hurted himself. It is really possible that he will be under sedation in order to force him to be calm at the airport and during all the time of the plane.

Another man who has a deportation today tried to commit suicide. We don’t know him neither his situation now. If his deportation is kept on going, he will probably be under sedation also.

Folks in Paris are trying to mobilize to distribute flyers at the airport Charles-de-Gaule to inform passengers of the current situation. Get in touch with La Chapelle Debout if you can go there.

Four Afghan men are facing deportation directly to Afghanistan, something hasn ‘t happened in France since 2009. All of them have been arrested at the train station of Calais on May 10th, and transfered to the Mesnil-Amelot detention center near Paris.

Four flights have been scheduled for these men, starting in 3 days with 2 police escoarts for each of them :

1 on Tuesday June 20th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 on Wednesday June 21th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)  flight canceled
1 on Friday June 23th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 on Saturday June 24th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1) flight canceled

Since the signing of an agreement between EU and Afghanistan on October 4-5th 2016 faciliting the forced return of Afghan people to Afghanistan, some countries (e.g. Germany, Sweden, and Norway) have started mass deportations to this country, seen as unsafe in the eyes of the international community. Now France is joining (something that hasn’t happened since 2009);  at least 80 Afghan people are detained in detention centers, with at least 17 at Mesnil-Amelot and 4 at risk of deportations. Two flights have been canceled last week.

4 hommes afghans font face à un risque d’expulsion directe vers l’Afghanistan, une pratique horrible qui n’était pas arrivée depuis 2009 en France. Ils ont tous été arretés à la Gare de Calais le 10 mai 2017 et transférés au centre de retention administrative Mesnil-Amelot près de Paris.

4 vols sont prévus pour chacun d’entre eux avec deux escortes de police pour chacun :

1 le mardi 20 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 le mercredi 21 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1) vol annulé
1 le vendredi 23 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 le samedi 24 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1) vol annulé

Depuis la signature d’un accord entre l’Union européenne et l’Afghanistan les 4-5 octobre derniers facilitant le retour forcé de personnes afghanes vers l’Afghanistan, certains pays de l’UE se sont précipités de déporter plusieurs centaines d’Afghan-e-s. C’est le cas de l’Allemagne, la Suède et la Norvège. Désormais la France se joint à la pratique (chose qui n’était pas arrivée depuis 2009), où au moins 80 personnes afghanes sont enfermées dans des CRA, dont 17 au Mesnil-Amelot et 4 risquant l’expulsion. 2 vols ont été annulés la semaine dernière.

Sudanese demonstration against government mass rape in Darfur

Friday saw a big energetic demonstration by the Sudanese in Calais to protest the mass rape of 200 women in Darfur by government forces. Starting at the food distribution people marched through town chanting ‘stop the rape in darfur, stop the war in darfur’. Arriving at the town hall the protesters delivered a letter addressed to Natasha Bouchart calling on her to raise their demands with the international community and to remember what refugees in Calais are escaping. The statement is below.

Statement from the Sudanese refugees in Calais

The oppressive regime of the National Congress Party remains in power in Khartoum. Since 2003 they have committed many crimes: over 5000 people have been killed, and there are now 4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugees. On 31 October 2014 in al Fashir (Tabid village), north Darfur, 200 women were raped by government forces, some of them still only young girls. There have been no investigations into these criminal acts by either the government or the UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) who are meant to be there for the protection of the people. By not bringing these criminals to justice the regime shows its true barbaric colours and its support for these acts.

To all those who love humanity

We have been made refugees by the barbarism and violence of the regime in Sudan and we continue to feel the suffering of those who remain there. Many still endure killing, rape, and forced expulsion from their villages which are then burned to the ground. Even though we are far away we stand beside them in solidarity to demand their human rights are respected. We call on all Sudanese people, both inside and outside the country, to stand up and demonstrate against what has happened there. We call on all the opposition parties to support and to stand with the victims in Darfur. We call on everyone around the world who cares about human rights to condemn these horrible acts. The government of Sudan is to blame for these atrocitities.

We demand the following:

1. There must be an immediate international and independent investigation into what happened in Tabid.

2. The International Criminal Court (ICC) must resume its attempts to bring president Omar al Bashir to justice for his crimes of genocide against the Sudanese people.

3. UNAMID is a powerless and corrupt organisation, as Aisha al Basri said when she resigned as its spokesperson. We demand it is replaced by a proper force that will protect the people of Darfur from the government and its militias. Such a force should be given the power to defend themselves and others under Article 7 by the UN.

4. We call upon the international community, including all European governments and human rights organisations, to intervene to protect victims in the conflict areas of Darfur, Nuba Mountains, and the Blue Nile.

5. We demand the UN continues to provide humanitarian aid to the IDPs in Darfur.

The world is full of genocide and sexual violence against women. We must put a stop to this!

Yes to humanity!

No to rape!

No to forced expulsions!

The voice of the Sudanese refugees in Calais, France.

Déclaration des refugiés de calais

Le régime oppressif du parti du congrès national reste au pouvoir à Kartoun. Depuis 2003 ses membres ont commis de nombreux crimes: plus de 5000 personnes ont été tuées, plus de 4 millions déplacées au sein du pays ou forcées à l’exil.

Le 31 octobre 2014 à Al Fachir (Village Tabib), nord Darfour, 200 femmes ont été violées par les forces gouvernementales, certaines d’entre elles étaient encore de jeunes filles. Aucune enquête n’a été menées sur ces actes criminels ni par le gouvernement ni par la mission de l’ONU au Darfour (UNAMID) pourtant supposée protéger le peuple. En ne menant pas ces criminels en justice le régime montre les vraies couleurs de sa barbarie et son soutien à ces actes.

A tous ceux qui qui aiment l’humanité

Nous avons été contraints à l’exil par la barbarie et la violence du régime au Soudan et nous continuons à ressentir la souffrance de ceux et celles restées sur place, Beaucoup endurent encore les assassinats, les viols, et l’expulsion forcée de leur village réduit en cendre. Même si nous sommes loin nous sommes à leur côté en solidarité pour demander que leurs droits d’être humain soient respectés. Nous demandons à toutes les personnes Soudanaises, à l’intérieur et l’extérieur du pays, de se positionner et de manifester leur opposition à ce qui se passe.

Nous demandons à tous les partis de l’opposition de nous soutenir et de se positionner du côté des victimes du Darfour. Nous appelons toute personne soucieuse des droits de l’homme à condamner ces actes de barbarie. Le gouvernement du Soudan doit être condamné pour ces atrocités.

Nos demandes sont les suivantes :

1. une enquête internationale doit être menée, indépendante sur ce qui s’est passé à Tabib.

2. La cour pénale internationale doit reprendre ses poursuites envers le président Omar al Bashir , le poursuivre en justice pour génocide contre le peuple Soudanais.

3. « UNAMID » est une organisation sans pouvoir et corrompue, comme l’a dit Aisha al Basri quand elle a démissionné de son poste de porte- parole. Nous demandons à ce qu’elle soit remplacée par une force correcte qui protégera réellement le peuple du Darfour du gouvernement et de ses milices. Une telle force devrait avoir les moyens de se défendre et de défendre les autres selon l’article 7 des Nations Unies.

4. Nous appelons la communauté internationale, les gouvernements européens et les organisations des droits de l’homme à intervenir et protéger les victimes des zones de conflit du Darfour, des Monts Nouba et du Nil Bleu.

5. Nous demandons aux Nations Unies de procurer une aide humanitaire aux populations déplacées du Darfour.

Le monde est rempli de génocides et de violence sexuelle contre les femmes. Nous devons mettre un terme à cela !

Oui à l’humanité !

Non aux viols !

Non aux expulsions forcées.
