L e collective Migrants welcome 34 held at noon Saturday, a shared lunch and solidarity at the centre of Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone. The collective Migrant welcome 34 illustrated in the “brutality” of the recent expulsion.
Far away eyes… and especially the heart of it all. The Prahda (programs of reception and accommodation of asylum seekers) are they something other than a new form of detention centre designed to facilitate the expulsion of asylum-seekers “dublinés” ? This is the question that one may ask. The collective Migrant welcome 34 held at noon Saturday, a shared lunch and solidarity at the centre of Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone.
A day of mobilization “in order to highlight the problem of the so-called Dublin (which allowed states to return the exiled to the first country where it has its footprints, with Italy in the majority of cases, editor’s NOTE) and to denounce the evictions in the wild, especially since December,” says Annie Duclary, a member of the collective. Three “dublinés” assigned to residence (perhaps four) have been arrested in late December and early January during their signature control bi-weekly.
Open since September in the former Formule 1 hotel just to the side of the house to stop, the Prahda is managed by Adoma, who has won the call for tenders at the national level, and home to 70 and 80 people. Far from the prefecture, of any business or medical service.
The associations are protesting against the conditions for the reception of these refugees and the non-respect of their rights : “there are only two social workers for up to 80 people,” says the volunteer. Suffice to say that the social support is reduced to its bare minimum : “Not learning the language, difficulty to access to health care, mail filtered… We want to stop this ordeal, evidenced by the residents of Villeneuve in an open letter. We opened the doors of the future.”
