ZaLab presents:

In the name of the Italian people (doc, 7’, Italy, 2012)
by Gabriele Del Grande and Stefano Liberti

Family fathers, female workers, young boys and girls born in Italy. Many of them arrive every day in the Identification and Expulsion centres (CIE) of Rome. They did not commit any crime, nevertheless they risk to spend 18 months behind bars waiting to be expelled. They detention is validated by a Justice of the Peace. In the name of the Italian People. An expired visa is enough. According to the law. And this is also enough to reassure public opinion and delete the problem. However we decided to go and take a look. A short doc came out of it, a journey made of images and stories from the CIE of Roma. Since we believe that showing those places and listen to those voices means breaking a definition. As well as confirming that no human being is illegal. Not even when the law say so.

In the name of the Italian People is the first of a series of short documentaries produced by ZaLab with the support of Open Society Foundations on the serious democratic emergency in today Italy. The main aim of the mini-docs is to narrate the several violations of fundamental rights across the country and to collect live testimonies from those who personally suffer from the situation, out of preconceptions and journalistic simplifications. ZaLab short docs are conceived for web distribution within the context of public awareness and advocacy campaigns.

In Jeitawi, little empathy for migrants

Three days after the Lebanese army raids against foreign migrants in Jeitawi, more and more details have come to light. Apparently the military’s operation was an act of collective punishment after mountingcomplaints by residents in the neighborhood about harassment and other disturbances.

According to a Human Rights Watch report published Wednesday, on Sunday night the Lebanese army raided three houses in the area. For several hours, they attacked at least 72 male workers from Syria, Egypt and Sudan with broomsticks and “viciously kicked and beat them.”

Staatsanwaltschaft ermittelt gegen Bundespolizei

Meldung vom Dienstag den 9.10.2012 – Abgelegt unter: Aktuelles

Der afghanische Flüchtling Aziz L., der am 21. August 2012 rechtswidrig
aus Nordrhein-Westfalen nach Italien abgeschoben wurde (siehe hier
und hier
ist wieder zurück in Deutschland. Er konnte am 25.9. wieder einreisen,
alle Kosten wurden vom Staat übernommen. Die Staatsanwaltschaft hat nach
einer Strafanzeige des Hamburger Rechtsanwalts Carsten Kerschies gegen
die Bundespolizei ein Ermittlungsverfahren wegen Freiheitsberaubung
eröffnet. Es stellt sich die Frage, warum die Bitte des
Verwaltungsgerichts Oldenburg an die Behörden, durch den Vollzug der
Abschiebung keine vollendeten Tatsachen zu schaffen, ignoriert wurde,
warum auch die telefonische Auskunft der Ausländerbehörde an die
Bundespolizei, dass das Gericht eine Aussetzung der Abschiebung
angeordnet habe, nicht ausreichte, und warum Aziz L., nachdem das
entsprechende Fax der Ausländerbehörde eine Minute nach Abflug bei der
Bundespolizei einging,  nicht wenigstens sofort wieder zurückgeflogen wurde.

Rome (Italy), September 10, 2012

We, the undersigned, were sad to learn that on September 7th, 2012 dozens of refugees lost their lives in the waters that separate North Africa from the Island of Lampedusa (Italy). It is the umpteenth tragedy involving desperate people fleeing from persecution and poverty among the indifference of the rest of the world. Over the past 20 years more than 20,000 refugees from African nations have perished in the short 127- km stretch of sea that separates desperate human beings from the hope of a safe refuge. For years the undersigned have been calling on the Italian government and international institutions to start a programme for the monitoring and rescue of refugees at sea, a programme that can be extended at the same time to Cyprus, Greece, Malta and Spain.
As a result of this request, we have suffered intimidation and censorship by the media. However, we are making another heartfelt appeal to the authorities this petition is addressed to: the civilized world cannot sit back and accept this slaughter that is destroying (along with so many lives) the right to life, the security and well-being that belongs to children, women, persecuted people, to all human beings, without distinction. Making the refugees’ crossing safer is a feat of civilization which the European Union, the United Nations and civil society cannot shirk from.

Until now, the dangers of the „journey of hope“ have been used by governments to scare people who under take this solution in an attempt to flee from a tragic existence. It is unfair, a true crime against humanity, and it is time to put a stop to it. To prevent these tragedies taking place at sea, the institutions have to make boats available, as well as aircraft and helicopters, patrols, maritime surveillance and a 24-hour rescue service, equipped with thermal cameras, radar and advanced technology. The rescue service would require fast helicopters, capable of rescuing and transporting large numbers of refugees, and monitoring systems on the ground to constantly keep an eye on the areas of the sea most affected by migration. It is important that advanced facilities are put in place to support refugees, including the establishment of offshore platforms that can be used by damaged boats and vessels that have gone adrift. Human life is the most precious thing that civilization is called on to protect, and the current situation, with the present inadequate sea rescue organization, is a source of guilt and shame for the international institutions, governments, civil society and all those who are able to improve the safety of refugees but do nothing about it. That is why we are renewing this appeal in the hope of stirring people’s conscience. We wish to work together for a new era that would raise our civilization to a higher level in which all persecuted and poor people – and all the human beings who risk their lives in search of protection – are considered brothers and sisters, and every life lost during these tragic crossings represents a loss for us all.

Thanking you for your attention and everything you can do to save lives,
