Press Information:

Counter Offensive to the Nigerian Government Role in the brutal

deportation of African Refugees, Nigerian and Non Nigerian Activists have

taken to Occupy the Nigerian Embassy Berlin to demand the cancellation of

all deportation agreement with the German State.

Deportation is only possible if a state is ready to „take back“ the person

concerned and for this purpose, the German authorities would do anything

to obtain traveling certificates to deport Refugees to any Country

wherever they could be accepted.

Refugees are constantly summoned to forced deportation hearings where they

are interviewed by Embassy Officials who would have to confirm their

origin and identity through Physical appearance to aid the issuance of

traveling certificates as a legitimation for their deportation.

These forced deportation hearing are randomly conducted in different

German City on a monthly basis in an atmosphere of massive Police presence

and abuses – From Halberstadt to Koln, Bielefeld to Karlsruhe, Dortmund to

Munich, Ludwigsburg to Dusseldorf.

Enough is Enough as we have reached an Offensive threshold to say No to

deportation threats and abuses because deportation is Colonial Heritage

and Persecution. We are therefore provoked to unlash appropriate action

against such acts that continues to traumatize and destroy Migrants and

Refugees in Germany

Refugee and non-Refugee Activist have for many years condemned this

routine deportation collaboration between the Nigerian Government and the

German European Government through the enforcement of militarized Frontex

- “Frontex being the boarder Watch dog of the European union with extended

artificial Borders up to Refugee Home Countries is mandated with the

responsibility of chartered deportation operations from Europe”

The January 2012 agreement between the Nigerian Government (Nigerian

Immigration Boss – Mrs. Rose Uzoma)and Frontex stands as a renewed

legitimation to the brutal deportation practices thus causing many deaths

and Trauma for Refugees thus requiring an immediate cancellation because

the same European Government who has made us refugees must be ready to

take the responsibility of their act.

It is based on this Position that we are calling on President Goodluck

Jonathan to take immediate step to cancel all deportation agreements and

collaboration between Frontex with the German State.

The obvious habit of ignoring the call for human rights can no longer be

tolerated hence the decision of Nigerian Refugees occupation of the

Nigerian Embassy in Berlin as a signal to more offensive counter action

against their deportation collaboratory role.

As first step to cooperation, We demand a Stop to the routine practices

of Forced-Mobile deportation Hearing with immediate effect (i.e.) 16.10.12

to 19.10.12 deportation hearing planned to take place at the State Police

Premises, Alte Weingartner Str. 49, 76227 Karlsruhe-Durlach.

Furthermore, we are undertaken an investigation in connection with

suspicion of free access for the German Immigration Service to access

Biometric Data of Nigerian Passport Holders – a development from the

current act of criminalization of Nigerian migrants with a direct call

for President Goodluck Jonathan to withdraw in case there is any of such.

We denounce every form of deportation collaboration because deportation

itself is a form of racial persecution and elimination and exists on

basic distinction of Europe being the progressive and developed while

Africa is defined as backward.

We say No to all forms of deportation collaboration
