Break the Apartheid Residential Restriction
Protest Against the Law Enforcement Officer on Control in Germany, the Politicians and the Legislation. Movement is our (my) individual and fundamental Right! Join the Civil Disobedience!
25.Mar.01 - The only reason for police control is to protect and keep the peace, without prejudice of origin, religion, colour or race, a normal act by an arm of government protected by every constitution in an expected democratic society. Refugees in Germany are victims of the Apartheid Residential Restriction -Obligation Pass Law îResidenzpflichtgesetz" reminiscent of the Apartheid era in South Africa forbidding freedom of movement, affecting migrants through segregating controls based on phenomenal differences from the majority white German. The Freedom of movement is non-negotiable and should be protected by each democratic society as the foundation of the development of the human personality.
Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which Germany is a signatory, states: Every human being has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each nation... We (I) therefore strongly protest this police control restricting Freedom of movement as an act of discrimination and total disregard of human dignity and human rights, calling on law enforcement officers that Apartheid Residential -Obligation "Pass Law" îResidenzpflichtgesetz" is racially motivated police selective enforcements; based on race, body colour, religion and nationality, which is unconstitutional, uncivilised with state insecurity for refugees and migrants.
This police control restricting movement and personality of the refugees without a crime, is an act of intentionally inflicting severe pain of physical and mental suffering, instigated by the state institutions, intimidating and destroying personal development, constituting deliberate cruelty, inhuman and degrading treatment; For which the state officials are protected when they do not permit the freedom of movement ensuring Institutionalised Racism, violating data protection laws investigating the privacy of persons including Germans who associate with the refugees and migrants.
These police controls are made criminal by the forceful fingerprinting and photography leading to an opening of a criminal file according to the German-Foreigners law-(AuslG) article 36 and the German law governing asylum application(AsylVFG) article 56. The state prosecution for freedom of movement brings about state and police brutality by battering and stripping-off, putting fingers into the mouth and anus that sometimes lead to police murder. This apartheid residential restriction ñObligation Pass law îResidenzpflichtgesetz" makes a refugee an open suspect without being a criminal that leads to racist detentions without crime according to (article 59 of the German law governing asylum application-AsylVFG). A repeated violation of this apartheid residential restriction -obligation "Pass law" exposes the refugee to a jail term of up to one year, at the discretion of the state authorities by (Article 85 No.2, and Article 59 of the law governing asylum application-AsylVG). You may be fined as much as 5000DM according to article 86 of the German asylum law (AsylVFG) for the violation of the residential restriction -Obligation "pass law" and if the fine cannot be paid by the refugee who gets 80DM per month, you slave work as punishment for the fine. This is exploitation that is repressive, prohibited by the United Nations declaration of human rights Articles 4,5,6,9,13 and 14.
With this criminalization controls We are (I am) treated as potential criminals or murderers, a refugee could be lawfully detained and put into custody awaiting deportation for 18 months without having committed a crime as regulated in Article 57 of the German-foreigners law (AuslG) and Article 59 of the law governing asylum application (AsylVFG). Are we (Am I) as travellers equal to murderers in your country? We (I) protest racist control, arrest, detention and the institutionalised racism.
Germans often forgot or ignored the fact that they benefited more than other countries from international asylum rights ñ first in the Nazi-Era, when many German people search for asylum all over the world, the second time after World War Two, when even guilty Nazi people obtained asylum rights in foreign countries including the countries of the refugees and migrants of today under the protection of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Right. But how is the situation now in Germany? The German reality is the political destruction of the individual and fundamental asylum rights for refugees and migrants, of which the German society must be reminded of their historical duty!
The German state global politics of refugee repression is in continuous escalation and collaboration with the fascists, dictators and the corrupt regimes in the refugee countries.
We (I) protest, calling for the abolition of the Apartheid Residential Restriction -Obligation Pass Law îResidenzpflichtgesetz?h which exist only in Germany since 1982, as a part of our (my) political engagement for the continuation of our (my) political struggle for human freedom in exile, as our (my) right to freedom of opinion, expression and association regardless of frontiers is also restricted, in violation of Articles 13, 19, 20, 27 and 29 of the universal declaration of human rights which Germany ratified.
For any compromise with the restriction of the individual right of movement and the confinement of refugees are political corruption, discrimination and gross human right abuse.
We (I) appeal against this control forbidding our (my) individual and fundamental right to move, forbidding our (my) right to live, for movement is life and freedom for liberty in an expected democratic state.
Stop enforcing racial laws.There is one-humanity and it cannot be divided by anyone or the German state. It is time now for civil disobedience!
Free Movement is Our Right! Germany is not safe for Refugees!
