Musicians protesting the bad situation in Horst
Musicians and activists came from all over Germany to allude to the unacceptable conditions in the camp in Nostorf / Horst: isolation, which is reinforced by insufficient transport connections, inadequate medical treatment, inadequate legal advice, nightly room searches, regular deportations , no access to school education for children of all ages.
The Ministry of the Interior took a position on the press release of the Lebenslaute in the NDR article linked above. Unfortunately, we can only react - again - with a shake of the head, because it shows that the Ministry of the Interior knows its contracts and concepts, but doesn't want to take a look at the real conditions.
Since PRO BLEIBERECHT is on site together with other initiatives with regular manifestations, we would like to respond to the statements of the Interior Ministry and show why it is still necessary to take to the streets against the warehouse operations - and finally: to close Horst!
Ministry of Interior thesis # 1
"The asylum seekers are not locked up, but can move freely."
If this statement allows conclusions to be drawn about what the Ministry of the Interior means by "freedom", we can dress warmly. The fact is: yes, residents can leave the fenced area.
Ministry of Interior thesis # 2
"The medical treatments are contractually secured through the Boizenburger clinic." & "The residents would be cared for in the same way as the local population."
Yes, this contract seems to exist. However, the bottleneck of the transfer to the clinic is the "medical service" on site in the camp or outside of the operator's office hours. There is no doctor on site. Nurses provide medical care for residents.
Ministry of Interior thesis #3
"Children would go to school in intercultural learning workshops."
It is astonishing how the Ministry insists on the "Intercultural Learning Workshop", a voluntary offer in which children are teached because the country refuses to provide them with regular schooling. What educational concept is the offer based on? What qualifications do the employees have? You don't find any information about it.
Ministry of Interior thesis # 4
A myth that is constant around Horst. The Ministry of the Interior sees itself confirmed by the disappointing judgment of the VG Schwerin regarding the admission suit of the Hamburg Refugee Council. The reality continues to be as follows: Asylum law advice from the refugee councils takes place in the containers in front of the camp. Residents who want to visit them must leave the camp and hand in their house ID. The advice is therefore not anonymous.

Ministry of Interior thesis # 6
In the online Duden, which can be viewed by everyone, it is written under the keyword > Lager <: "for a temporary stay of a larger number of people furnished [provisional] living or overnight accommodation". So yes: Horst is a camp.
Ministry of Interior thesis # 7
There actually seems to be a hairdresser, we already heard that from past manifestations by residents. However, we were told that residents cut other residents their hair there, not external hairdressers.
Ministry of Interior thesis # 8
In fact, the BAMF is also on site in Stern Buchholz. It conducts hearings and revocation procedures there and takes fingerprints as part of the identification process. Stern Buchholz is listed on the BAMF website as "Stern-Buchholz - branch in the arrival center", Horst simply as "branch".
Ministry of Interior thesis # 9
The special concerns of individuals (who, in turn, as women, as children, as victims of human trafficking, torture and / or violence, as politically persecuted, as poor, as rich, as Europeans, as Arabs, as sociable people, as shy people, as a computer scientist, as a welder, or, or, or again each have different needs) cannot be adequately considered in a collective warehouse.
Come to our manifestations!
