Event series about deportation and deportation custody

Since 1919 german law contains detention pending deportation. In Dresden-Friedrichstadt a detention center was opened in late 2018. The of this form of custody is, that refugees who shall be deported cannot hide from deportation. There is no need for a crime to be placed in custody. It can be enough to miss an official appointment.

In many cases, massive violations of fundamental rights can be observed. One lawyer reported that in about 50% of his cases, people were unlawfully taken into custody. In most cases the court-decision was made after the after the deportation. Prisoners of deportation detention don’t have a lobby that fights these illegitimacies.

There are many reasons to question the purpose of prisons in our society. Yet it is quite clear, that deportation detention is a cruel way to treat people, who came to Europe to flee from war, poverty, persecution and many other legitimate reasons.

This march and april we would like to look at this topic from different perspectives. How does depotation custody work? Why can it be criticized? Who is involved? Can i support affected people? Do we actually need prisons? Come to our events between march 20th and april 23rd!
