Het lukt de groep mensen zonder papieren van We Are Here, die onlangs een leegstaand pand in de James Wattstraat kraakten, maar niet om de electriciteit in het gebouw aan de praat te krijgen. Dit heeft al tot ziekenhuisopnames geleid, aldus de communicatie hieronder. De groep is dringend op zoek naar een vaardig electricien en doet op haar Facebook-pagina de volgende dramatische oproep.
Jameswatstraat 58 and 78 Notice – Press Release
We are collective of refugees self-organized since 2012 we have had lived in more than 32 abandoned buildings around all of Amsterdam. After the last eviction from our building in diemen zuid on September 2017, which was better warm than the place we were know, must our thought was as longer as we are in stable living, it helps us to think on or cases, but not always is the same.
This time, however, we have to face the coldly winter times with no running electricity on the building were we are, right know. The BBB is almost full and is not available for all of the refugees, according to the principle of we are here. the BB is not solution, because most of us we had long time here in the NL, beginning form 1 year up to 17 years with no permanent to stay because of the Progracy OF THE SYSTEM, and the Dublin convention doesn’t aloud us for the third country, so we are hooked up here!
Anyone can help on fixing the electric?
The situation of displaced people in Amsterdam as WRH is very real. If 59 people living in this inhuman condition, to except the situation as it’s or being end up on the street until you voluntarily leave the country, or hopefully find another building or end up into the jell according to the system plan . The most disturbing part of this situation is that this always seems to happen right around or just before Christmas and the New Year time, when the weather is at its harshest.
Emotions are running high in the buildings of Jameswatstraat 58 and 78 Amsterdam-east this week one of our members has been hospitalized 3 times in 2 days because of building 58 living condition is very cold, as this is an endless, dysfunctional cycle. As Wij Zijn Hier we are calling for change – real change on the part the authorities. We are asking authorities to empathize with the situation of displaced people in the city – some people have been shifted from place to place, building to building for over 5 years now. We are already in a situation of uncertainty and instability as undocumented people in Amsterdam, this is a request for us to have some long term stability in terms of a living situation. We are calling for human decency and understanding of our situation so that, at least, we can live without upheaval or fear.
