Statement of Orfanotrofeio/Thessaloniki

Please help us spread the statement of people from the solidarity squat
Ορφανοτροφείο in regards to the eviction of our squat in Thessaloniki
last week. Police raided and evicted the house in the early hours of
Wednesday arrested the people and afterwards transported all
non-European comrades to a military camp 45 minutes outside of the city,
meanwhile 4 European comrades are faced with a trial tomorrow.

This was my home

This was home for me and my children And for thirty more families and
many other people. We were living like one family, and we came from all
over the world It was our school, it was our culture. It embraced our
different opinions and beliefs. It was the real helping hand for
everyone. Freedom of speech and expression existed there in the full
sense of the term.

The main aim of this place was to bring together and unite all human
ideas and practices in order to serve the weak and the oppressed and
support the dispossessed. And just when we thought we were at last safe,
that we were in the right place, European governments that claim to
support justice and equality and not sectarianism and authoritarianism
and that allegedly stand for freedom and democracy decided that we don’t
deserve to live in peace. They decided we ought to live in the camps,
far removed from the world, in conditions that not even animals would
tolerate. It is hard for us to accept the truth that we’re not part of
humanity, that human rights are not valid in our case. As refugees and
immigrants our only “right” is to watch our children fall sick and die
before our eyes, watch women struggle to meet basic needs. They are
moving us around like puppets, they pull the strings and we respond
accordingly… And today the government issued another decision against us:
In cold blood it pulled down and ripped out everything. They struck with
indescribable brutality. They came prepared in full attire, with loaded
weapons, as if we were less than animals, and they pulled us out with
handcuffs before the eyes of our children.

Quickly our dreams disappeared.

They were replaced by the images we thought we’d left behind. And we
thought that we would never be oppressed again. And that we would build
a brighter future for our children, with no fear, in the country of
freedom and rights. Yet even though discrimination is everywhere, we
still deeply that there’s a lot of people who will face up to the
difficulties. Their will is strong and they fear nothing. And they don’t
give up their dignity under any circumstance, at whatever cost. And we
hope that you’re in solidarity with us so that together, step by step,
we defend every right for every person, and we will claim everything
that was taken away from us. With the courage and strength of free
people who believe in fighting for their freedom.
