  • Migranti, Centri per il rimpatrio peggio del carcere: “condizioni deplorevoli”

    Una situazione ancora più critica che in passato, molto dura e preoccupante, sia dal punto di vista della vita quotidiana, che scorre senza nessuna attività, con evidenti ripercussioni sulla salute psicofisica delle persone ristrette (fino a sei mesi o anche più), sia per quanto riguarda le condizioni materiali degli ambienti, spesso danneggiati o incendiati da precedenti ospiti ma mantenuti in tali condizioni di deterioramento e di assenza di igiene. E’ la fotografia dei Cpr (#Centri_per_il_rimpatrio) in Italia secondo il Garante delle persone private della libertà #Mauro_Palma.

    A distanza di alcuni mesi dalle ultime visite il Garante, nei giorni scorsi, ha effettuato nuove visite in quattro dei sei Centri per il rimpatrio presenti sul territorio italiano. Il 6 giugno una delegazione guidata da #Daniela_de_Robert, componente del Collegio del Garante, si è recata presso il Cpr di #Ponte_Galeria, a Roma, nel quale ha visitato l’appena riaperta sezione maschile. Il 18, il 19 e il 20 giugno, una delegazione guidata dal Presidente Mauro Palma e dalla stessa de Robert, ha visitato i Cpr di #Palazzo_San_Gervasio (in provincia di #Potenza), di #Bari e di #Brindisi. “Alcune criticità appaiono persino più gravi che in passato, in primo luogo perché la possibile prolungata permanenza rende ancora più inaccettabili talune condizioni, in secondo luogo perché nuove criticità si sono prodotte nel tempo: per esempio il guasto, riscontrato in un Centro, di tutti i telefoni pubblici che, unito alla mancata disponibilità di telefoni cellulari da destinare agli ospiti, rischia di comprimere il diritto alla difesa e quello all’unità familiare - si legge nella nota del Garante -. In alcuni Cpr non esistono ambienti forniti di tavoli e gli ospiti si trovano costretti a consumare i pasti sul proprio letto. Una privazione della libertà disposta perlopiù non in conseguenza di reati ma per irregolarità amministrative non può essere simile o peggiore a quella di chi sconta una pena. Tantomeno può prevedere minori garanzie di tutela dei propri diritti: per questo il diritto al reclamo e il potere di vigilanza dell’autorità giurisdizionale devono essere introdotti per le situazioni di privazione della libertà delle persone migranti, come il Garante nazionale ha da tempo raccomandato”. Pertanto il Garante chiede al governo di valutare “l’assoluta necessità di rendere la qualità della vita in questi Centri compatibile con il recente allungamento dei tempi di trattenimento”.

    Dopo aver visitato recentemente il Porto di #Civitavecchia e le zone aeroportuali di #Fiumicino e #Malpensa, il Garante nazionale il 20 giugno ha altresì visitato il Porto di #Bari – il primo Porto d’Italia per respingimenti – e le relative pertinenze, esaminando le procedure di espulsione e di respingimento, al fine di evitare che l’Italia debba rispondere in sede internazionale per eventuali violazioni.

  • "Ho eseguito gli ordini ma mi vergogno. Quei disperati ci chiedevano aiuto"

    «È l’ordine più infame che abbia mai eseguito. Non ci ho dormito, al solo pensiero di quei disgraziati», dice uno degli esecutori del «respingimento». "Dopo aver capito di essere stati riportati in Libia - aggiunge - ci urlavano: «Fratelli aiutateci». Ma non potevamo fare nulla, gli ordini erano quelli di accompagnarli in Libia e l’abbiamo fatto. Non racconterò ai miei figli quello che ho fatto, me ne vergogno".

    Parlano i militari delle motovedette italiane - quella della Guardia di Finanza, la «#Gf_106» e quella della Capitaneria di porto, la «#Cpp_282» - appena rientrati dalla #missione_rimpatrio. Sono stati loro a riportare in Libia oltre 200 extracomunitari, tra i quali 40 donne (3 incinte) e 3 bambini, dopo averli soccorsi mercoledì scorso nel Canale di Sicilia. Un «successo», lo ha definito il ministro Maroni, che finanzieri e marinai delle due motovedette non condividono anche se hanno eseguito quegli ordini. Niente nomi naturalmente, i marinai delle due motovedette rischierebbero quanto meno una punizione se non peggio. Ma molti non nascondono il loro sdegno per quello che hanno vissuto e dovuto fare. «Eravamo impegnati in altre operazioni - dicono fiamme gialle e marinai della capitaneria - poi improvvisamente è arrivato l’ordine di andare a soccorrere quelle tre imbarcazioni, di trasbordarli sulle nostre motovedette e di riportarli in Libia».

    Non è stato facile, a bordo di quelle carrette del mare c’erano donne incinte, tre bambini e tutti gli altri che avevano tentato di raggiungere Lampedusa. «Molti stavano male, alcuni avevano delle gravi ustioni, le donne incinte erano quelle che ci preoccupavano di più, ma non potevamo fare nulla, gli ordini erano quelli e li abbiamo eseguiti. Quando li abbiamo presi a bordo dai tre barconi ci hanno ringraziato per averli salvati. In quel momento, sapendo che dovevamo respingerli, il cuore mi è diventato piccolo piccolo. Non potevo dirgli che li stavamo portando di nuovo nell’inferno dal quale erano scappatati a rischio della vita».

    A bordo hanno anche pregato Dio ed Allah che li aveva risparmiati dal deserto, dalle torture e dalla difficile navigazione verso Lampedusa. Ma si sbagliavano, Roma aveva deciso che dovevano essere rispediti in Libia. «Nessuno di loro lo aveva capito, ci chiedevano come mai impiegavamo tanto tempo per arrivare a Lampedusa, rispondevamo dicendo bugie, rassicurandoli».

    La bugia non è durata molto, poco prima dell’alba qualcuno ha notato che le luci che vedevano da lontano non erano quelle di Lampedusa ma quelle di Tripoli. Alla fine i marinai italiani sono stati costretti a spiegare: «Non è stato facile dire a tutta quella gente che li avevamo riportati da dove erano partiti. Erano stanchi, avevano navigato con i barconi per cinque giorni, senza cibo e senza acqua. Non hanno avuto la forza di ribellarsi, piangevano, le donne si stringevano i loro figli al petto e dai loro occhi uscivano lacrime di disperazione».

    Lo sbarco a Tripoli è avvenuto poco dopo le sette del mattino: "Vederli scendere ci ha ferito tantissimo. Ci gridavano: «Fratelli italiani aiutateci, non ci abbandonate»". Li hanno dovuti abbandonare, invece, li hanno lasciati al porto di Tripoli dove c’erano i militari libici che li aspettavano. Sulla banchina c’erano anche i volontari delle organizzazioni umanitarie del Cir e dell’Onu, ma non hanno potuto far nulla, si sono limitati a contare quei disperati che a fatica, scendevano dalla passerelle delle motovedette per tornare nell’inferno dal quale erano scappati. Le donne sono state separate dagli uomini e portati in «centri d’accoglienza» vicino Tripoli. Non si sa che fine faranno.
    Solo uno è riuscito a sfuggire al rimpatrio. Un ventenne del Mali che aveva intuito cosa stava succedendo a bordo e si era nascosto sotto un telone. Ha messo la testa fuori solo quando la motovedetta della Finanza è attraccata a Lampedusa, ha aspettato che a bordo non ci fosse più nessuno e poi è sceso anche lui. È stato rintracciato mentre passeggiava nelle strade dell’isola ed ha subito confessato. Adesso si trova nel centro della base Loran di Lampedusa. Un miracolato.

  • #Mauritanie : 60000 #réfugiés_maliens vivent dans le #camp de #Mbera

    Ils sont #peuls, #touaregs ou #arabes et viennent tous du Mali. Certains fuyant les violences des groupes jihadistes, d’autres celles de l’armée malienne. Depuis 2012, ce sont près de 60 000 réfugiés qui ont élu domicile dans le camp de Mbera, en Mauritanie. Et qui ne sont pas prêts à refranchir la frontière.

    « Nous allons relever sept données biométriques, ce qui nous garantit demain que quiconque ne peut plus se présenter sous cette identité. » Ici, nous sommes au #centre_d’enregistrement du #HCR, le Haut-Commissariat aux réfugiés des Nations unies. Passage obligé pour tout demandeur d’asile.

    Ses #empreintes_digitales, Hamady Ba, 40 ans, les a données il y a quatre ans déjà. Il a fui les persécutions contre les peuls au Mali. « J’ai vu des exactions de la part de l’armée, raconte-t-il. Ils rentraient dans notre village, prenaient des gens, les attachaient, et les frappaient. C’est pour ça que j’ai fui. »

    Zeïna, elle, est arrivée il y a quatre mois à peine. À dos de mulet, pour fuir les jihadistes. Et il n’est pas question de repartir. « On a vraiment essayé de supporter cette situation, mais c’était trop. J’ai décidé de prendre mes enfants pour arrêter d’entendre le bruit des armes, confie-t-elle. J’ai été obligé de fuir, mais je ne supportais vraiment plus cette situation. »

    Sous sa tente bien tenue, mais rudimentaire, Sidi Mohamed est un habitué du camp. En 1991 déjà, il avait trouvé refuge ici. À 70 ans, il a encore de l’espoir. « Chaque prière que je fais, je prie Dieu pour que la paix revienne au Mali et dans le monde. En dehors de tout ça, on veut juste vivre avec dignité », dit-il.

    Le mois dernier, environ 300 réfugiés ont décidé de retourner tenter leur chance au Mali. Contre l’avis du HCR, qui estime que la situation n’est pas prête à se stabiliser.

  • Call immigrant detention centers what they really are: concentration camps

    If you were paying close attention last week, you might have spotted a pattern in the news. Peeking out from behind the breathless coverage of the Trump family’s tuxedoed trip to London was a spate of deaths of immigrants in U.S. custody: Johana Medina Léon, a 25-year-old transgender asylum seeker; an unnamed 33-year-old Salvadoran man; and a 40-year-old woman from Honduras.

    Photos from a Border Patrol processing center in El Paso showed people herded so tightly into cells that they had to stand on toilets to breathe. Memos surfaced by journalist Ken Klippenstein revealed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s failure to provide medical care was responsible for suicides and other deaths of detainees. These followed another report that showed that thousands of detainees are being brutally held in isolation cells just for being transgender or mentally ill.

    Also last week, the Trump administration cut funding for classes, recreation and legal aid at detention centers holding minors — which were likened to “summer camps” by a senior ICE official last year. And there was the revelation that months after being torn from their parents’ arms, 37 children were locked in vans for up to 39 hours in the parking lot of a detention center outside Port Isabel, Texas. In the last year, at least seven migrant children have died in federal custody.

    Preventing mass outrage at a system like this takes work. Certainly it helps that the news media covers these horrors intermittently rather than as snowballing proof of a racist, lawless administration. But most of all, authorities prevail when the places where people are being tortured and left to die stay hidden, misleadingly named and far from prying eyes.

    There’s a name for that kind of system. They’re called concentration camps. You might balk at my use of the term. That’s good — it’s something to be balked at.

    The goal of concentration camps has always been to be ignored. The German-Jewish political theorist Hannah Arendt, who was imprisoned by the Gestapo and interned in a French camp, wrote a few years afterward about the different levels of concentration camps. Extermination camps were the most extreme; others were just about getting “undesirable elements … out of the way.” All had one thing in common: “The human masses sealed off in them are treated as if they no longer existed, as if what happened to them were no longer of interest to anybody, as if they were already dead.”

    Euphemisms play a big role in that forgetting. The term “concentration camp” is itself a euphemism. It was invented by a Spanish official to paper over his relocation of millions of rural families into squalid garrison towns where they would starve during Cuba’s 1895 independence war. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered Japanese Americans into prisons during World War II, he initially called them concentration camps. Americans ended up using more benign names, like “Manzanar Relocation Center.”

    Even the Nazis’ camps started out small, housing criminals, Communists and opponents of the regime. It took five years to begin the mass detention of Jews. It took eight, and the outbreak of a world war, for the first extermination camps to open. Even then, the Nazis had to keep lying to distract attention, claiming Jews were merely being resettled to remote work sites. That’s what the famous signs — Arbeit Macht Frei, or “Work Sets You Free” — were about.

    Subterfuge doesn’t always work. A year ago, Americans accidentally became aware that the Trump administration had adopted (and lied about) a policy of ripping families apart at the border. The flurry of attention was thanks to the viral conflation of two separate but related stories: the family-separation order and bureaucrats’ admission that they’d been unable to locate thousands of migrant children who’d been placed with sponsors after crossing the border alone.

    Trump shoved that easily down the memory hole. He dragged his heels a bit, then agreed to a new policy: throwing whole families into camps together. Political reporters posed irrelevant questions, like whether President Obama had been just as bad, and what it meant for the midterms. Then they moved on.

    It is important to note that Trump’s aides have built this system of racist terror on something that has existed for a long time. Several camps opened under Obama, and as president he deported millions of people.

    But Trump’s game is different. It certainly isn’t about negotiating immigration reform with Congress. Trump has made it clear that he wants to stifle all non-white immigration, period. His mass arrests, iceboxes and dog cages are part of an explicitly nationalist project to put the country under the control of the right kind of white people.

    As a Republican National Committee report noted in 2013: “The nation’s demographic changes add to the urgency of recognizing how precarious our position has become.” The Trump administration’s attempt to put a citizenship question on the 2020 census was also just revealed to have been a plot to disadvantage political opponents and boost “Republicans and Non-Hispanic Whites” all along.

    That’s why this isn’t just a crisis facing immigrants. When a leader puts people in camps to stay in power, history shows that he doesn’t usually stop with the first group he detains.

    There are now at least 48,000 people detained in ICE facilities, which a former official told BuzzFeed News “could swell indefinitely.” Customs and Border Protection officials apprehended more than 144,000 people on the Southwest border last month. (The New York Times dutifully reported this as evidence of a “dramatic surge in border crossings,” rather than what it was: The administration using its own surge of arrests to justify the rest of its policies.)

    If we call them what they are — a growing system of American concentration camps — we will be more likely to give them the attention they deserve. We need to know their names: Port Isabel, Dilley, Adelanto, Hutto and on and on. With constant, unrelenting attention, it is possible we might alleviate the plight of the people inside, and stop the crisis from getting worse. Maybe people won’t be able to disappear so easily into the iceboxes. Maybe it will be harder for authorities to lie about children’s deaths.

    Maybe Trump’s concentration camps will be the first thing we think of when we see him scowling on TV.

    The only other option is to leave it up to those in power to decide what’s next. That’s a calculated risk. As Andrea Pitzer, author of “One Long Night,” one of the most comprehensive books on the history of concentration camps, recently noted: “Every country has said their camps are humane and will be different. Trump is instinctively an authoritarian. He’ll take them as far as he’s allowed to.”

    • ‘Some Suburb of Hell’: America’s New Concentration Camp System

      On Monday, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referred to US border detention facilities as “concentration camps,” spurring a backlash in which critics accused her of demeaning the memory of those who died in the Holocaust. Debates raged over a label for what is happening along the southern border and grew louder as the week rolled on. But even this back-and-forth over naming the camps has been a recurrent feature in the mass detention of civilians ever since its inception, a history that long predates the Holocaust.

      At the heart of such policy is a question: What does a country owe desperate people whom it does not consider to be its citizens? The twentieth century posed this question to the world just as the shadow of global conflict threatened for the second time in less than three decades. The dominant response was silence, and the doctrine of absolute national sovereignty meant that what a state did to people under its control, within its borders, was nobody else’s business. After the harrowing toll of the Holocaust with the murder of millions, the world revisited its answer, deciding that perhaps something was owed to those in mortal danger. From the Fourth Geneva Convention protecting civilians in 1949 to the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the international community established humanitarian obligations toward the most vulnerable that apply, at least in theory, to all nations.

      The twenty-first century is unraveling that response. Countries are rejecting existing obligations and meeting asylum seekers with walls and fences, from detainees fleeing persecution who were sent by Australia to third-party detention in the brutal offshore camps of Manus and Nauru to razor-wire barriers blocking Syrian refugees from entering Hungary. While some nations, such as Germany, wrestle with how to integrate refugees into their labor force—more and more have become resistant to letting them in at all. The latest location of this unwinding is along the southern border of the United States.

      So far, American citizens have gotten only glimpses of the conditions in the border camps that have been opened in their name. In the month of May, Customs and Border Protection reported a total of 132,887 migrants who were apprehended or turned themselves in between ports of entry along the southwest border, an increase of 34 percent from April alone. Upon apprehension, these migrants are temporarily detained by Border Patrol, and once their claims are processed, they are either released or handed over to ICE for longer-term detention. Yet Border Patrol itself is currently holding about 15,000 people, nearly four times what government officials consider to be this enforcement arm’s detention capacity.

      On June 12, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that Fort Sill, an Army post that hosted a World War II internment camp for detainees of Japanese descent, will now be repurposed to detain migrant children. In total, HHS reports that it is currently holding some 12,000 minors. Current law limits detention of minors to twenty days, though Senator Lindsey Graham has proposed expanding the court-ordered limit to 100 days. Since the post is on federal land, it will be exempt from state child welfare inspections.

      In addition to the total of detainees held by Border Patrol, an even higher number is detained at centers around the country by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency: on a typical day at the beginning of this month, ICE was detaining more than 52,500 migrants. The family separation policy outraged the public in the 2018, but despite legal challenges, it never fully ended. Less publicized have been the deaths of twenty-four adults in ICE custody since the beginning of the Trump administration; in addition, six children between the ages of two and sixteen have died in federal custody over the last several months. It’s not clear whether there have been other deaths that have gone unreported.

      Conditions for detainees have not been improving. At the end of May, a Department of Homeland Security inspector general found nearly 900 migrants at a Texas shelter built for a capacity of 125 people. On June 11, a university professor spotted at least 100 men behind chain-link fences near the Paso del Norte Bridge in El Paso, Texas. Those detainees reported sitting outside for weeks in temperatures that soared above 100 degrees. Taylor Levy, an El Paso immigration lawyer, described going into one facility and finding “a suicidal four-year-old whose face was covered in bloody, self-inflicted scratches… Another young child had to be restrained by his mother because he kept running full-speed into metal lockers. He was covered in bruises.”

      If deciding what to do about the growing numbers of adults and children seeking refuge in the US relies on complex humanitarian policies and international laws, in which most Americans don’t take a deep interest, a simpler question also presents itself: What exactly are these camps that the Trump administration has opened, and where is this program of mass detention headed?

      Even with incomplete information about what’s happening along the border today and what the government plans for these camps, history points to some conclusions about their future. Mass detention without trial earned a new name and a specific identity at the end of the nineteenth century. The labels then adopted for the practice were “reconcentración” and “concentration camps”—places of forced relocation of civilians into detention on the basis of group identity.

      Other kinds of group detention had appeared much earlier in North American history. The US government drove Native Americans from their homelands into prescribed exile, with death and detention in transit camps along the way. Some Spanish mission systems in the Americas had accomplished similar ends by seizing land and pressing indigenous people into forced labor. During the 245 years when slavery was legal in the US, detention was one of its essential features.

      Concentration camps, however, don’t typically result from the theft of land, as happened with Native Americans, or owning human beings in a system of forced labor, as in the slave trade. Exile, theft, and forced labor can come later, but in the beginning, detention itself is usually the point of concentration camps. By the end of the nineteenth century, the mass production of barbed wire and machines guns made this kind of detention possible and practical in ways it never had been before.

      Under Spanish rule in 1896, the governor-general of Cuba instituted camps in order to clear rebel-held regions during an uprising, despite his predecessor’s written refusal “as the representative of a civilized nation, to be the first to give the example of cruelty and intransigence” that such detention would represent. After women and children began dying in vast numbers behind barbed wire because there had been little planning for shelter and even less for food, US President William McKinley made his call to war before Congress. He spoke against the policy of reconcentración, calling it warfare by uncivilized means. “It was extermination,” McKinley said. “The only peace it could beget was that of the wilderness and the grave.” Without full records, the Cuban death toll can only be estimated, but a consensus puts it in the neighborhood of 150,000, more than 10 percent of the island’s prewar population.

      Today, we remember the sinking of the USS Maine as the spark that ignited the Spanish-American War. But war correspondent George Kennan (cousin of the more famous diplomat) believed that “it was the suffering of the reconcentrados, more, perhaps, than any other one thing that brought about the intervention of the United States.” On April 25, 1898, Congress declared war. Two weeks later, US Marines landed at Fisherman’s Point on the windward side of the entrance to Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. After a grim, week-long fight, the Marines took the hill. It became a naval base, and the United States has never left that patch of land.

      As part of the larger victory, the US inherited the Philippines. The world’s newest imperial power also inherited a rebellion. Following a massacre of American troops at Balangiga in September 1901, during the third year of the conflict, the US established its own concentration camp system. Detainees, mostly women and children, were forced into squalid conditions that one American soldier described in a letter to a US senator as “some suburb of hell.” In the space of only four months, more than 11,000 Filipinos are believed to have died in these noxious camps.

      Meanwhile, in southern Africa in 1900, the British had opened their own camps during their battle with descendants of Dutch settlers in the second Boer War. British soldiers filled tent cities with Boer women and children, and the military authorities called them refugee camps. Future Prime Minister David Lloyd George took offense at that name, noting in Parliament: “There is no greater delusion in the mind of any man than to apply the term ‘refugee’ to these camps. They are not refugee camps. They are camps of concentration.” Contemporary observers compared them to the Cuban camps, and criticized their deliberate cruelty. The Bishop of Hereford wrote to The Times of London in 1901, asking: “Are we reduced to such a depth of impotence that our Government can do nothing to stop such a holocaust of child-life?”

      Maggoty meat rations and polluted water supplies joined outbreaks of contagious diseases amid crowded and unhealthy conditions in the Boer camps. More than 27,000 detainees are thought to have died there, nearly 80 percent of them children. The British had opened camps for black Africans as well, in which at least 14,000 detainees died—the real number is probably much higher. Aside from protests made by some missionaries, the deaths of indigenous black Africans did not inspire much public outrage. Much of the history of the suffering in these camps has been lost.

      These early experiments with concentration camps took place on the periphery of imperial power, but accounts of them nevertheless made their way into newspapers and reports in many nations. As a result, the very idea of them came to be seen as barbaric. By the end of the first decade of the twentieth century, the first camp systems had all been closed, and concentration camps had nearly vanished as an institution. Within months of the outbreak of World War I, though, they would be resurrected—this time rising not at the margins but in the centers of power. Between 1914 and 1918, camps were constructed on an unprecedented scale across six continents. In their time, these camps were commonly called concentration camps, though today they are often referred to by the more anodyne term “internment.”

      Those World War I detainees were, for the most part, foreigners—or, in legalese, aliens—and recent anti-immigration legislation in several countries had deliberately limited their rights. The Daily Mail denounced aliens left at liberty once they had registered with their local police department, demanding, “Does signing his name take the malice out of a man?” The Scottish Field was more direct, asking, “Do Germans have souls?” That these civilian detainees were no threat to Britain did not keep them from being demonized, shouted at, and spat upon as they were paraded past hostile crowds in cities like London.

      Though a small number of people were shot in riots in these camps, and hunger became a serious issue as the conflict dragged on, World War I internment would present a new, non-lethal face for the camps, normalizing detention. Even after the war, new camps sprang up from Spain to Hungary and Cuba, providing an improvised “solution” for everything from vagrancy to anxieties over the presence of Jewish foreigners.

      Some of these camps were clearly not safe for those interned. Local camps appeared in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1921, after a white mob burned down a black neighborhood and detained African-American survivors. In Bolshevik Russia, the first concentration camps preceded the formation of the Soviet Union in 1922 and planted seeds for the brutal Gulag system that became official near the end of the USSR’s first decade. While some kinds of camps were understood to be harsher, after World War I their proliferation did not initially disturb public opinion. They had yet to take on their worst incarnations.

      In 1933, barely more than a month after Hitler was appointed chancellor, the Nazis’ first, impromptu camp opened in the town of Nohra in central Germany to hold political opponents. Detainees at Nohra were allowed to vote at a local precinct in the elections of March 5, 1933, resulting in a surge of Communist ballots in the tiny town. Locking up groups of civilians without trial had become accepted. Only the later realization of the horrors of the Nazi death camps would break the default assumption by governments and the public that concentration camps could and should be a simple way to manage populations seen as a threat.

      However, the staggering death toll of the Nazi extermination camp system—which was created mid-war and stood almost entirely separate from the concentration camps in existence since 1933—led to another result: a strange kind of erasure. In the decades that followed World War II, the term “concentration camp” came to stand only for Auschwitz and other extermination camps. It was no longer applied to the kind of extrajudicial detention it had denoted for generations. The many earlier camps that had made the rise of Auschwitz possible largely vanished from public memory.

      It is not necessary, however, to step back a full century in American history to find camps with links to what is happening on the US border today. Detention at Guantánamo began in the 1990s, when Haitian and Cuban immigrants whom the government wanted to keep out of the United States were housed there in waves over a four-year period—years before the “war on terror” and the US policy of rendition of suspected “enemy combatants” made Camps Delta, X-Ray, and Echo notorious. Tens of thousands of Haitians fleeing instability at home were picked up at sea and diverted to the Cuban base, to limit their legal right to apply for asylum. The court cases and battles over the suffering of those detainees ended up setting the stage for what Guantánamo would become after September 11, 2001.

      In one case, a federal court ruled that it did have jurisdiction over the base, but the government agreed to release the Haitians who were part of the lawsuit in exchange for keeping that ruling off the books. A ruling in a second case would assert that the courts did not have jurisdiction. Absent the prior case, the latter stood on its own as precedent. Leaving Guantánamo in this gray area made it an ideal site for extrajudicial detention and torture after the twin towers fell.

      This process of normalization, when a bad camp becomes much more dangerous, is not unusual. Today’s border camps are a crueler reflection of long-term policies—some challenged in court—that earlier presidents had enacted. Prior administrations own a share of the responsibility for today’s harsh practices, but the policies in place today are also accompanied by a shameless willingness to publicly target a vulnerable population in increasingly dangerous ways.

      I visited Guantánamo twice in 2015, sitting in the courtroom for pretrial hearings and touring the medical facility, the library, and all the old abandoned detention sites, as well as newly built ones, open to the media—from the kennel-style cages of Camp X-Ray rotting to ruin in the damp heat to the modern jailhouse facilities of Camp 6. Seeing all this in person made clear to me how vast the architecture of detention had become, how entrenched it was, and how hard it would be to close.

      Without a significant government effort to reverse direction, conditions in every camp system tend to deteriorate over time. Governments rarely make that kind of effort on behalf of people they are willing to lock up without trial in the first place. And history shows that legislatures do not close camps against the will of an executive.

      Just a few years ago there might have been more potential for change spurred by the judicial branch of our democracy, but this Supreme Court is inclined toward deference to executive power, even, it appears, if that power is abused. It seems unlikely this Court will intervene to end the new border camp system; indeed, the justices are far more likely to institutionalize it by half-measures, as happened with Guantánamo. The Korematsu case, in which the Supreme Court upheld Japanese-American internment (a ruling only rescinded last year), relied on the suppression of evidence by the solicitor general. Americans today can have little confidence that this administration would behave any more scrupulously when defending its detention policy.

      What kind of conditions can we expect to develop in these border camps? The longer a camp system stays open, the more likely it is that vital things will go wrong: detainees will contract contagious diseases and suffer from malnutrition and mental illness. We have already seen that current detention practices have resulted in children and adults succumbing to influenza, staph infections, and sepsis. The US is now poised to inflict harm on tens of thousands more, perhaps hundreds of thousands more.

      Along with such inevitable consequences, every significant camp system has introduced new horrors of its own, crises that were unforeseen when that system was opened. We have yet to discover what those will be for these American border camps. But they will happen. Every country thinks it can do detention better when it starts these projects. But no good way to conduct mass indefinite detention has yet been devised; the system always degrades.

      When, in 1940, Margarete Buber-Neumann was transferred from the Soviet Gulag at Karaganda to the camp for women at Ravensbrück (in an exchange enabled by the Nazi–Soviet Pact), she came from near-starvation conditions in the USSR and was amazed at the cleanliness and order of the Nazi camp. New arrivals were issued clothing, bedding, and silverware, and given fresh porridge, fruit, sausage, and jam to eat. Although the Nazi camps were already punitive, order-obsessed monstrosities, the wartime overcrowding that would soon overtake them had not yet made daily life a thing of constant suffering and squalor. The death camps were still two years away.

      The United States now has a vast and growing camp system. It is starting out with gruesome overcrowding and inadequate healthcare, and because of budget restrictions, has already taken steps to cut services to juvenile detainees. The US Office of Refugee Resettlement says that the mounting number of children arriving unaccompanied is forcing it to use military bases and other sites that it prefers to avoid, and that establishing these camps is a temporary measure. But without oversight from state child welfare inspectors, the possibilities for neglect and abuse are alarming. And without any knowledge of how many asylum-seekers are coming in the future, federal administrators are likely to find themselves boxed in to managing detention on military sites permanently.

      President Trump and senior White House adviser Stephen Miller appear to have purged the Department of Homeland Security of most internal opposition to their anti-immigrant policies. In doing so, that have removed even those sympathetic to the general approach taken by the White House, such as former Chief of Staff John Kelly and former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, in order to escalate the militarization of the border and expand irregular detention in more systematic and punitive ways. This kind of power struggle or purge in the early years of a camp system is typical.

      The disbanding of the Cheka, the Soviet secret police, in February 1922 and the transfer of its commander, Felix Dzerzhinsky, to head up an agency with control over only two prisons offered a hint of an alternate future in which extrajudicial detention would not play a central role in the fledgling Soviet republic. But Dzerzhinsky managed to keep control over the “special camps” in his new position, paving the way for the emergence of a camp-centered police state. In pre-war Germany in the mid-1930s, Himmler’s struggle to consolidate power from rivals eventually led him to make camps central to Nazi strategy. When the hardliners win, as they appear to have in the US, conditions tend to worsen significantly.

      Is it possible this growth in the camp system will be temporary and the improvised border camps will soon close? In theory, yes. But the longer they remain open, the less likely they are to vanish. When I visited the camps for Rohingya Muslims a year before the large-scale campaign of ethnic cleansing began, many observers appeared to be confusing the possible and the probable. It was possible that the party of Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi would sweep into office in free elections and begin making changes. It was possible that full democracy would come to all the residents of Myanmar, even though the government had stripped the Rohingya of the last vestiges of their citizenship. These hopes proved to be misplaced. Once there are concentration camps, it is always probable that things will get worse.

      The Philippines, Japanese-American internment, Guantánamo… we can consider the fine points of how the current border camps evoke past US systems, and we can see how the arc of camp history reveals the likelihood that the suffering we’re currently inflicting will be multiplied exponentially. But we can also simply look at what we’re doing right now, shoving bodies into “dog pound”-style detention pens, “iceboxes,” and standing room-only spaces. We can look at young children in custody who have become suicidal. How much more historical awareness do we really need?

  • ICC submission calls for prosecution of EU over migrant deaths

    Member states should face punitive action over deaths in Mediterranean, say lawyers.

    The EU and member states should be prosecuted for the deaths of thousands of migrants who drowned in the Mediterranean fleeing Libya, according to a detailed legal submission to the international criminal court (ICC).

    The 245-page document calls for punitive action over the EU’s deterrence-based migration policy after 2014, which allegedly “intended to sacrifice the lives of migrants in distress at sea, with the sole objective of dissuading others in similar situation from seeking safe haven in Europe”.

    The indictment is aimed at the EU and the member states that played a prominent role in the refugee crisis: Italy, Germany and France.

    The stark accusation, that officials and politicians knowingly created the “world’s deadliest migration route” resulting in more than 12,000 people losing their lives, is made by experienced international lawyers.

    The two main authors of the submission are Juan Branco, who formerly worked at the ICC as well as at France’s foreign affairs ministry, and Omer Shatz, an Israeli lawyer who teaches at Sciences Po university in Paris.

    The allegation of “crimes against humanity” draws partially on internal papers from Frontex, the EU organisation charged with protecting the EU’s external borders, which, the lawyers say, warned that moving from the successful Italian rescue policy of Mare Nostrum could result in a “higher number of fatalities”.

    The submission states that: “In order to stem migration flows from Libya at all costs … and in lieu of operating safe rescue and disembarkation as the law commands, the EU is orchestrating a policy of forced transfer to concentration camps-like detention facilities [in Libya] where atrocious crimes are committed.”

    The switch from Mare Nostrum to a new policy from 2014, known as Triton (named after the Greek messenger god of the sea), is identified as a crucial moment “establishing undisputed mens rea [mental intention] for the alleged offences”.

    It is claimed that the evidence in the dossier establishes criminal liability within the jurisdiction of the ICC for “causing the death of thousands of human beings per year, the refoulement [forcible return] of tens of thousands migrants attempting to flee Libya and the subsequent commission of murder, deportation, imprisonment, enslavement, torture, rape, persecution and other inhuman acts against them”.

    The Triton policy introduced the “most lethal and organised attack against civilian population the ICC had jurisdiction over in its entire history,” the legal document asserts. “European Union and Member States’ officials had foreknowledge and full awareness of the lethal consequences of their conduct.”

    The submission does not single out individual politicians or officials for specific responsibility but does quote diplomatic cables and comments from national leaders, including Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.

    The office of the prosecutor at the ICC is already investigating crimes in Libya but the main focus has been on the Libyan civil war, which erupted in 2011 and led to the removal of Muammar Gaddafi. Fatou Bensouda, the ICC prosecutor, has, however, already mentioned inquiries into “alleged crimes against migrants transiting through Libya”.

    The Mare Nostrum search and rescue policy launched in October 2013, the submission says, was “in many ways hugely successful, rescuing 150,810 migrants over a 364-day period”.

    Criticism of the policy began in mid-2014 on the grounds, it is said, that it was not having a sufficient humanitarian impact and that there was a desire to move from assistance at sea to assistance on land.

    “EU officials sought to end Mare Nostrum to allegedly reduce the number of crossings and deaths,” the lawyers maintain. “However, these reasons should not be considered valid as the crossings were not reduced. And the death toll was 30-fold higher.”

    The subsequent policy, Triton, only covered an “area up to 30 nautical miles from the Italian coastline of Lampedusa, leaving around 40 nautical miles of key distress area off the coast of Libya uncovered,” the submission states. It also deployed fewer vessels.

    It is alleged EU officials “did not shy away from acknowledging that Triton was an inadequate replacement for Mare Nostrum”. An internal Frontex report from 28 August 2014, quoted by the lawyers, acknowledged that “the withdrawal of naval assets from the area, if not properly planned and announced well in advance – would likely result in a higher number of fatalities.”

    The first mass drownings cited came on 22 January and 8 February 2015, which resulted in 365 deaths nearer to the Libyan coast. It is alleged that in one case, 29 of the deaths occurred from hypothermia during the 12-hour-long transport back to the Italian island of Lampedusa. During the “black week” of 12 to 18 April 2015, the submission says, two successive shipwrecks led to the deaths of 1,200 migrants.

    As well as drownings, the forced return of an estimated 40,000 refugees allegedly left them at risk of “executions, torture and other systematic rights abuses” in militia-controlled camps in Libya.

    “European Union officials were fully aware of the treatment of the migrants by the Libyan Coastguard and the fact that migrants would be taken ... to an unsafe port in Libya, where they would face immediate detention in the detention centers, a form of unlawful imprisonment in which murder, sexual assault, torture and other crimes were known by the European Union agents and officials to be common,” the submission states.

    Overall, EU migration policies caused the deaths of “thousands civilians per year in the past five years and produced about 40,000 victims of crimes within the jurisdiction of the court in the past three years”, the report states.

    The submission will be handed in to the ICC on Monday 3 June.

    An EU spokesperson said the union could not comment on “non-existing” legal actions but added: “Our priority has always been and will continue to be protecting lives and ensuring humane and dignified treatment of everyone throughout the migratory routes. It’s a task where no single actor can ensure decisive change alone.

    “All our action is based on international and European law. The European Union dialogue with Libyan authorities focuses on the respect for human rights of migrants and refugees, on promoting the work of UNHCR and IOM on the ground, and on pushing for the development of alternatives to detention, such as the setting up of safe spaces, to end the systematic and arbitrary detention system of migrants and refugees in Libya.

    “Search and Rescue operations in the Mediterranean need to follow international law, and responsibility depends on where they take place. EU operations cannot enter Libya waters, they operate in international waters. SAR operations in Libyan territorial waters are Libyan responsibility.”

    The spokesperson added that the EU has “pushed Libyan authorities to put in place mechanisms improving the treatment of the migrants rescued by the Libyan Coast Guard.”

    • L’Union Européenne devra-t-elle un jour répondre de « crimes contre l’Humanité » devant la Cour Pénale Internationale ?

      #Crimes_contre_l'humanité, et #responsabilité dans la mort de 14 000 migrants en 5 années : voilà ce dont il est question dans cette enquête menée par plusieurs avocats internationaux spécialisés dans les Droits de l’homme, déposée aujourd’hui à la CPI de la Haye, et qui pourrait donc donner lieu à des #poursuites contre des responsables actuels des institutions européennes.

      La démarche fait l’objet d’articles coordonnés ce matin aussi bien dans le Spiegel Allemand (https://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/fluechtlinge-in-libyen-rechtsanwaelte-zeigen-eu-in-den-haag-an-a-1270301.htm), The Washington Post aux Etats-Unis (https://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/fluechtlinge-in-libyen-rechtsanwaelte-zeigen-eu-in-den-haag-an-a-1270301.htm), El Pais en Espagne (https://elpais.com/internacional/2019/06/02/actualidad/1559497654_560556.html), The Guardian en Grande-Bretagne, et le Monde, cet après-midi en France... bref, ce qui se fait de plus retentissant dans la presse mondiale.

      Les auteurs de ce #plaidoyer, parmi lesquels on retrouve le français #Juan_Branco ou l’israélien #Omer_Shatz, affirment que Bruxelles, Paris, Berlin et Rome ont pris des décisions qui ont mené directement, et en connaissance de cause, à la mort de milliers de personnes. En #Méditerrannée, bien sûr, mais aussi en #Libye, où la politique migratoire concertée des 28 est accusée d’avoir « cautionné l’existence de centres de détention, de lieux de tortures, et d’une politique de la terreur, du viol et de l’esclavagisme généralisé » contre ceux qui traversaient la Libye pour tenter ensuite de rejoindre l’Europe.

      Aucun dirigeant européen n’est directement nommé par ce réquisitoire, mais le rapport des avocats cite des discours entre autres d’#Emmanuel_Macron, d’#Angela_Merkel. Il évoque aussi, selon The Guardian, des alertes qui auraient été clairement formulées, en interne par l’agence #Frontex en particulier, sur le fait que le changement de politique européenne en 2014 en Méditerranée « allait conduire à une augmentation des décès en mer ». C’est ce qui s’est passé : 2014, c’est l’année-bascule, celle où le plan Mare Nostrum qui consistait à organiser les secours en mer autour de l’Italie, a été remplacé par ce partenariat UE-Libye qui, selon les auteurs de l’enquête, a ouvert la voix aux exactions que l’on sait, et qui ont été documentées par Der Spiegel dans son reportage publié début mai, et titré « Libye : l’enfer sur terre ».

      A présent, dit Juan Branco dans The Washington Post (et dans ce style qui lui vaut tant d’ennemis en France), c’est aux procureurs de la CPI de dire « s’ils oseront ou non » remonter aux sommet des responsabilités européennes. J’en terminerai pour ma part sur les doutes de cet expert en droit européen cité par El Pais et qui « ne prédit pas un grand succès devant la Cour » à cette action.

    • Submission to ICC condemns EU for ‘crimes against humanity’

      EU Commission migration spokesperson Natasha Bertaud gave an official statement regarding a recently submitted 245-page document to the International Criminal Court by human rights lawyers Juan Branco and Omer Shatz on June 3, 2019. The case claimed the EU and its member states should face punitive action for Libyan migrant deaths in the Mediterranean. The EU says these deaths are not a result of EU camps, rather the dangerous and cruel routes on which smugglers take immigrants. Bertaud said the EU’s track record on saving lives “has been our top priority, and we have been working relentlessly to this end.” Bertaud said an increase in EU operations in the Mediterranean have resulted in a decrease in deaths in the past 4 years. The accusation claims that EU member states created the “world’s deadliest migration route,” which has led to more than 12,000 migrant deaths since its inception. Branco and Shatz wrote that the forcible return of migrants to Libyan camps and the “subsequent commission of murder, deportation, imprisonment, enslavement, torture, rape, persecution and other inhuman acts against them,” are the grounds for this indictment. Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron were named specifically as those knowingly supporting these refugee camps, which the lawyers explicitly condemned in their report. The EU intends to maintain its presence on the Libyan coast and aims to create safer alternatives to detention centers.

  • In Sardegna, il carcere diventa un #Cpr. La casa circondariale di Macomer era stata chiusa perche inadatta ad ospitare anche i detenuti di massima sicurezza

    Un carcere trasformato in Cpr. La principale conseguenza dei cosiddetti “decreti sicurezza e immigrazione” (Minniti-Orlando e Salvini) in Sardegna sarà la ristrutturazione dell’ex casa circondariale di #Macomer, in provincia di #Nuoro, in un centro di permanenza per il rimpatrio. La struttura, finiti i lavori di sistemazione, dovrebbe ospitare un centinaio di “ospiti”, ma forse dovremmo scrivere “detenuti”. Secondo le direttive del ministero dell’Interno, già quest’anno dovrebbe entrare in funzione per una cinquantina di migranti. “I bandi di gestione sono già stati emessi – spiega Francesca Mazzuzi, referente per la campagna lasciateCIEntrare dell’isola -. Nelle intenzioni del ministro Matteo Salvini, come di chi l’ha preceduto e degli amministratori regionali e locali, questo dovrebbe fungere da deterrente per chi sbarca in Sardegna lungo la rotta algerina ma sappiamo bene che non ci sono deterrenti che reggono per chi non ha alternative a quella di scappare da fame e guerre e per chi, come gli algerini, desidera fortemente un futuro migliore. Proprio come è stato per i Cie, questa struttura non servirà a nulla se non a raccattare facili consensi in campagna elettorale ed a calpestare i diritti di chi ha già sofferto troppo”.

    Contro il Cpr di Macomer si sono levate molte voci tra le quali quella dell’ex cappellano della casa circondariale, don Mario Cadeddu, che ha sottolineato come la struttura sia stata chiusa proprio perché non rispondeva ai parametri minimi di legge previsti per la detenzione. “Un suo impiego come centro di rimpatrio mi sembra assurdo. – Ha dichiarato don Mario alla Nuova Sardegna –. La struttura non va bene per questo tipo di utilizzo e non è neppure adattabile. Le celle sono state considerate troppo strette anche per questo che doveva diventare un carcere di massima sicurezza. Pure gli spazi esterni sono ristretti. Non riesco a immaginare come vivrebbero queste persone che, oltre a tutto, scappano dai loro Paesi per disperazione. Diventerebbe una specie di lager”. Il parere negativo arrivato anche dalla Regione e dai Comuni interessati riguardo le condizioni peggiorative di detenzione previste dal nuovo decreto sicurezza non ha comunque fermato il ministro che ha ribadito la sua intenzione di farne un Cpr a qualunque costo. “Prima i sardi”, per l’appunto!

    “Il bando per l’affidamento è in corso – continua Francesca -. Sette ditte hanno concorso. Tre sono locali e quattro vengono dal continente. Tra queste c’è quella dal curriculum non esattamente promettente che ha gestito il Cara di Mineo, ed è anche quella che ha più probabilità di vincere la gara. Staremo a vedere. Nel frattempo come Campagna LasciateCIEntrare prepariamo la mobilitazione”.

    Cpr a parte, gli effetti del decreto “sicurezza” devono ancora sbarcare in Sardegna. A dispetto di chi urla di “invasione”, le presenze di rifugiati nell’isola è molto bassa ed in diminuzione. I dati del Viminale parlano di 2 mila 101 richiedenti asilo al 13 maggio di quest’anno. Poco più della metà delle presenze dell’anno precedente: 4 mila 155.

    “La nostra Regione non offre grandi attrattive occupazionali, a anche il settore agricolo non ha prospettive, così anche i migranti che presentano ricorso preferiscono andarsene prima di attendere la sentenza – continua Francesca -. Inoltre, l’isola è stata coinvolta in ritardo nella distribuzione dei flussi e nuovi arrivi praticamente non ce ne sono”.

    La contrazione del numero di Cas – 106 a fine 2018 contro 17 Sprar – è dovuta quindi più alla diminuzione delle presenze che al decreto Salvini, al quale sono comunque ascrivibili casi, difficilmente quantificabili, di revoca dell’accoglienza per i titolari della “vecchia” protezione umanitaria.

    “Gli effetti del decreto li sentiremo tra non molto, quando entrano in funzione i nuovi gestori. Attualmente sono in corso le procedure di affido per le provincie di Sassari e di Cagliari che sono quelle con la più alta percentuale di presenze. I tagli sono stati drammatici e dubitiamo che, con i nuovi capitolati di appalto, si riesca a garantire quei servizi come i corsi di lingua, la preparazione al colloquio con la commissione, gli accompagnamenti e l’assistenza sanitaria che già per le passate gestioni erano un punto dolente”.

    Altro punto dolente, la questione anagrafica. Nonostante le recenti sentenze dei tribunali, nessun Comune sardo ha concesso l’iscrizione ai richiedenti asilo. “Gli ufficiali dell’Anagrafe non vogliono esporsi e le amministrazioni fanno orecchie da mercante. Teniamo presente che in molti Comuni siamo prossimi alle elezioni – conclude Francesca -. A Cagliari inoltre, dopo il passaggio del sindaco Massimo Zedda al Consiglio Regionale, il Comune è stato commissariato e qualsiasi presa di posizione in merito è praticamente impossibile. L’unica strada sarà quella dei ricorsi al giudice”.

    https://the-spark.net/np1080601.html #CPI #crime_de_guerre #violence_sexuelle

    In 2017, the prosecutor for the #International_Criminal_Court (#ICC), Fatou Bensouda, asked to open an investigation into war crimes and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan. She said these were carried out by all sides, including the U.S. and the U.S.-backed government.

    She said, “There is reasonable basis to believe that, since May 2003, members of the U.S. armed forces and the #CIA have committed #war_crimes of #torture and #cruel_treatment, outrages upon personal dignity, and rape and other forms of #sexual_violence pursuant to a policy approved by U.S. authorities.” And she submitted more than 20,000 pages of evidence to back up her charges.

    But no surprise – the U.S. blocked this investigation. First, they revoked Bensouda’s visa, effectively kicking her out of the country. Then, in April of this year, the judges at the court rejected her request to investigate. They noted that they have been unable to get the U.S. to cooperate, and said the ICC should “use its resources prioritizing activities that would have a better chance to succeed.”

    Yes, the ICC has a better chance of “success” – but only if its investigations fit the interests of U.S. #imperialism!

  • #Calais et ses « #jungles » : toponymies en questions

    Calais est un nom qui évoque certainement beaucoup de choses. Le nord de la France, la frontière britannique, le Tunnel sous la Manche, le passage clandestin vers le Royaume-Uni… C’est un espace, devenu sujet d’études sous de nombreux aspects, notamment dans les travaux de l’anthropologue Michel Agier. Il est pourtant un angle d’analyse qui n’ait pas encore été complètement exploré aujourd’hui : celui de sa toponymie.

    Et pourtant, voilà une approche intéressante en ce qu’elle révèle le rapport des individus avec les lieux. Un rapport tout à la fois culturel et pratique. Calais, ville portuaire aux multiples visages, abrite en effet toute une série de lieux à une échelle relativement petite, humaine. Ces lieux où l’on dort, où l’on se cache, où l’on mange, où l’on se lave près d’un point d’eau où dans un canal pollué, où l’on court, la nuit, derrière des camions de marchandises en partance pour la Grande-Bretagne. Ces lieux sont investis par un large nombre de personnes, de différentes nationalités, et sont également tenus par des réseaux de trafiquants qui se partagent le territoire et le défendent coûte que coûte (Frayer-Laleix, 2015, p. 230). Les groupes d’appartenance nationale ou ethnique nomment et renomment ces espaces selon différentes modalités : la discrétion (utiliser une langue que d’autres ne comprendront pas), la culture (un endroit qui s’appelle de telle manière dans sa langue natale sera appelé de même à Calais), l’existence d’une culture orale relative au lieu (un nom de lieu propre à un endroit en particulier, qui traverse les années sans que l’on se souvienne précisément de la raison d’avoir nommé ce lieu de ainsi).

    Comme le relève le quotidien français La Croix, le terme de jungle, employé depuis plus d’une décennie pour désigner les lieux d’habitat précaire des personnes en situation irrégulière transitant sur le territoire européen, a une histoire étymologique intéressante.

    « Les Afghans, déjà les plus nombreux parmi les réfugiés de l’époque [2003], parlaient de leur « jangal » – « bois » en pachtoune – dans lequel ils s’étaient repliés, à la consonance fort proche de la « jungle » anglaise.

    Rien de très étonnant à cette affinité linguistique puisque l’anglais a adapté le terme hindoustani « jangal » en « jungle » en 1777, précise le Dictionnaire historique de la langue française. Thomas Howel qui fit une expédition en Inde au XVIIIe siècle explique que « jungle est un mot dont on se sert dans l’Inde qui signifie bosquet ou bouquet de bois », dans son Voyage en retour de l’Inde par terre et par une route en partie inconnue jusqu’ici, publié en 1791 et traduit en français en 1796.

    C’est d’ailleurs au cours de cette même année 1796 que le français emprunte à l’anglais le mot « jungle ». Le sens de « territoire inhabité » se meut en « territoire couvert d’une végétation impénétrable », ajoute le Dictionnaire historique, et se confond avec le « lieu sauvage » qu’évoque le terme sanskrit « jangala ». Le Livre de la jungle de Rudyard Kipling (1899) se chargera plus tard d’assurer la postérité du mot.

    C’est donc là, dans le petit bois Dubrulle – dit aussi bois des Garennes –, qu’est née d’un quiproquo linguistique « la jungle de Calais ». »

    Bien que dérivé d’un terme pachtoune, le mot jungle est aujourd’hui très largement utilisé parmi les différentes communautés occupant les camps de fortune dispersés sur le territoire des Hauts-de-France (anciennement Nord-Pas-de-Calais). Aussi bien Érythréens qu’Éthiopiens, Soudanais, Somaliens, Iraniens ou encore Pakistanais, l’utilisent couramment. Le terme désigne tous les camps informels, et non pas un seul. Ainsi, il serait en vérité plus adéquat de parler des jungles, au pluriel. Cependant, quelques spécificités dans la nomination existent, selon la communauté concernée ou pour des questions purement pratiques. Ainsi, la Jungle de Calais, ce bidonville à l’extérieur de Calais qui avait abrité, entre 2015 et 2016, quelques 10’000 personnes dans des constructions précaires ou de simples tentes de camping, est désormais appelée « Old jungle », par les habitants des nouveaux campements de fortune dispersés dans la ville de Calais et aux alentours. On entend parfois aussi « Big jungle », mais c’est plus rare tant cette dénomination risquerait de créer la confusion entre le bidonville démantelé en 2016 par les autorités françaises et le plus grand campement informel existant actuellement dans la zone industrielle calaisienne. Ainsi, « Big jungle » fait aujourd’hui référence à un ensemble de tentes situé dans une petite forêt aux alentours de la ville. Les personnes exilées parlent aussi de « Little jungle », ou de « Eritrean jungle » en référence à un groupe de jeunes Érythréens qui occupe une autre petite forêt plus proche du centre-ville. Pour désigner ce même espace, les Érythréens eux-mêmes emploient plutôt les termes « Little forest ». Ces appellations n’ont pas la même valeur. Certaines sont vernaculaires, d’autres véhiculaires. Les termes « Little jungle » et « Eritrean jungle » sont compris au-delà du groupe d’Érythréens qui l’occupe, tandis que « Little forest » est plutôt réservé à un usage interne.

    Les noms vernaculaires sont aussi plus éphémères car basés sur une situation qui peu changer à tout moment. Par exemple, si la communauté érythréenne, pour une raison ou une autre, finit par ne plus occuper la forêt qu’elle appelle « Little forest », cette appellation disparaîtra d’elle-même, ou sera associée à un autre espace.

    Prenons un autre exemple. À partir de l’été 2017 et jusqu’à l’hiver de la même année, une communauté ethnique éthiopienne, les Oromos, ont investi les abords d’un canal en plein centre-ville de Calais. Ils dormaient et vivaient sous un pont, se lavaient ainsi que leurs vêtements dans l’eau stagnante du canal au bord duquel ils jouaient ensuite au football. Cet endroit était alors appelé « dildila », ce mot signifiant « pont » en oromique. En dehors de leur groupe linguistique, personne n’employait ni ne comprenait ce terme. Après que ce pont n’a finalement plus fait l’objet d’une occupation récurrente, le terme a disparu. Les membres de ce même groupe, pour éviter que l’on ne les comprenne en dehors de celui-ci, utilisaient le terme « ganda harre » pour désigner le commissariat de police de la ville. Cette précaution était surtout prise pour que les forces de l’ordre ne puissent pas les comprendre, plus que pour se protéger d’un autre groupe de personnes exilées. Enfin, tandis que les membres du groupe de personnes amhariques (également originaires d’Éthiopie) appelaient et appellent encore toujours la « Big jungle » citée plus haut « tchaka », qui signifie simplement « forêt » en amharique, les Oromos utilisent bien plus souvent le terme « bosona » : « forêt » en oromique. Ces derniers comprennent et utilisent tout de même aussi, moins souvent, le mot amharique, liant ainsi les différents groupes en une communauté nationale partageant des termes communs pour désigner les mêmes espaces. Le mot « tchaka » est alors moins éphémère que le mot « bosona » puisqu’il est plus largement compris et employé par différents groupes. Mais le jour où plus aucun ressortissant éthiopien ne vivra à cet endroit, l’appellation disparaîtra très certainement.

    Nous pouvons affirmer ici que les appellations sont étroitement liées aux personnes qui les inventent et les emploient. Un membre de tel groupe dira comme ceci, tandis qu’un membre de tel autre dira plutôt comme cela. Mais cela n’est pas une règle absolue. Comme il est déjà possible de le constater avec le terme « jungle », très largement employé depuis des années, certaines dénominations s’imposent à travers le temps et/ou les groupes.

    Un exemple frappant de cette réalité est celui d’une partie de la forêt, relativement éloignée du centre-ville calaisien, dénommée « Khairo Jungle » par la communauté afghane principalement. Selon d’anciens habitants de ces campements de fortune aux alentours de la ville, originaires d’Éthiopie et d’Érythrée, ce terme est assez peu connu. Un seul Éthiopien sur les quatre interviewés avait entendu le terme auparavant. Celui-ci explique par ailleurs que c’est un Afghan qui lui a expliqué la raison de cette appellation, dont il a des souvenirs assez vagues. Selon lui, cette petite forêt s’appelle ainsi en hommage à un chef de mafia afghan qui vivait sur les lieux il y a une dizaine d’années, et qui y aurait été assassiné par la police française. La version en question paraît assez peu crédible, étant donné que le meurtre d’un ressortissant afghan, même en situation irrégulière sur le territoire français, par les forces de l’ordre se serait très certainement su assez rapidement. Or, il n’y a aucune trace d’un meurtre commis par un ou plusieurs officier(s) de police dans les médias français. Une interview avec un jeune Afghan apporte un éclairage différent à l’affaire : celui-ci explique plutôt que le nom Khairo était bien celui d’un Afghan vivant là il y a une décennie, que celui-ci était bien membre d’un réseau mafieux de trafic d’êtres humains de la France vers la Grande-Bretagne, mais qu’il a été tué par d’autres membres de ce même réseau en raison de sa trop grande flexibilité professionnelle. En effet, l’interviewé affirme que Khairo acceptait souvent de faire passer des personnes exilées sans compensation financière, ou à moindre coût. De plus, celui-ci était réputé pour offrir ses services indépendamment de la nationalité de ses clients – or, le marché de ce trafic est normalement réputé extrêmement compartimenté en fonction des appartenances nationales et ethniques des clients/victimes. Pour ces raisons, l’interviewé explique que Khairo, faisant perdre trop d’argent à son réseau, aurait fini par être assassiné dans la forêt qui, depuis lors, porte son nom au sein de la communauté afghane. Il conclut en précisant que son corps aurait par la suite été rapatrié en Afghanistan, détail qui rend sa version bien plus crédible.

    Ce qui est particulièrement intéressant par rapport à cet exemple, c’est que le nom de Khairo n’est aujourd’hui plus lié à une connaissance personnelle des faits ou de la personne. Plus aucun membre de du groupe d’Afghans actuellement à Calais n’a connu cet homme ni la ou les personne(s) responsables de son décès. Les évènements sont peu à peu devenus légende et, suite à l’entretien avec le jeune Afghan, il paraît clair que le personnage de Khairo est devenu une sorte de héros mythifié. Son nom est ainsi resté malgré le fait que plus personne ne sache ce qui s’est réellement passé ni la chronologie exacte des évènements. Par ailleurs, cette appellation semble se cantonner à un usage interne, même si quelques rares membres d’autres groupes nationaux ou linguistiques ont pu entendre parler de cela lors de leur passage à Calais.

    Dans ce sens, un autre fait est certainement intéressant à relever. À Calais, les principaux points de passage clandestin sont des parkings où les poids lourds se garent le temps de la pause ou de la sieste de leur chauffeur. C’est un moment particulièrement propice étant donné l’inattention du conducteur, et également un lieu idéal en raison de sa relative excentration par rapport à la ville et du fait de l’immobilité totale des véhicules convoités par les candidats au départ (il est beaucoup moins dangereux de monter dans un camion à l’arrêt que de chercher à le faire alors qu’il roule sur l’autoroute). Sans surprise, les réseaux de trafic se sont depuis longtemps emparés de ces lieux stratégiques pour en faire leur source de revenus. L’un de ces parkings, nombreux dans la région au vu du nombre de poids lourds y transitant chaque année, est largement connu sous le nom de « Sheitan parking » ou « Sheitan park ». Le terme « Sheitan » est la version arabe de « satan ». Sans exception, les personnes interviewées ont reconnu employer ce terme pour désigner un seul et même endroit aux alentours de la ville de Calais, et ce indépendamment de leur nationalité et de la langue qu’elles parlent. Par ailleurs, celles-ci invoquent toutes la même raison de cette appellation : l’extrême dangerosité des lieux. Selon elles, s’y risquer revient littéralement à mettre sa vie en jeu, en raison des membres du réseau de trafic qui s’en est emparé et qui le défend de façon virulente. Cette virulence est décrite comme pouvant aller jusqu’à menacer de mort les personnes exilées n’étant pas les bienvenues (car n’ayant pas payé ou n’étant pas de la bonne nationalité) avec des armes.

    En conclusion, il semble clair que les divers espaces investis par les personnes exilées le sont notamment d’un point de vue symbolique. Les appellations relèvent de faits divers, difficilement vérifiables, de la culture – notamment linguistique – propre aux personnes les employant, etc. Cette toponymie reste jusqu’à aujourd’hui totalement invisible. Elle reflète pourtant une véritable culture orale de l’occupation précaire de certains lieux.

  • Des ordonnances Macron aux « Gilets Jaunes » - Stéphane Sirot - Restriction ou extension du domaine de la lutte syndicale ?

    A l’automne 2017, les ordonnances Macron ont rétréci drastiquement le périmètre d’intervention du syndicalisme dans les entreprises.

    Un an plus tard et dans un tout autre registre, le mouvement social dit des « Gilets jaunes » s’est formé et développé en-dehors des organisations de travailleurs, alors même qu’un grand nombre de leurs revendications et une large part des citoyens en mouvement s’inscrivent dans le cœur de cible du syndicalisme de rapport de force.

    http://www-radio-campus.univ-lille1.fr/ArchivesN/LibrePensee/STGJ190119.mp3

    Ce mouvement est unique et spécifique. Mais on pourrait faire un rapprochement avec la période de 1788-1789, qui précède la convocation des Etats Généraux par Louis XVI. On a vu l’émergence de cahiers de doléances qui mettent sur le papier les revendications des gilets jaunes, une absence de leader et une incapacité du pouvoir à répondre à ce mouvement. A l’inverse, la comparaison avec le poujadisme et les jacqueries me semble erronée : ce n’est pas une révolte contre l’impôt mais contre l’injustice qui est ressentie dans la répartition du produit des richesses.

    On a tendance à l’oublier, mais les violences ont presque toujours accompagné les conflits sociaux. Avant la Première guerre mondiale, le maintien de l’ordre était dévolu à l’armée. Il y avait des morts presque chaque année dans les mouvements sociaux. Il y a eu une tendance à la pacification des mouvements sociaux dans les années 80 et 90, avec des manifestations encadrées et pacifiques. 

    Mais depuis le début des années 2000 (émeutes des banlieues et CPE) on a une résurgence des violences à l’occasion de grandes manifestations. Ces actions violentes, sans être suivies par la masse, ne sont pas forcément rejetées. On a vu samedi des gilets jaunes pacifiques regarder ces affrontements sans les fuir. 

    Habituellement, le soutien de l’opinion s’effrite quand des violences se déclenchent dans les mouvements sociaux. Ce n’est pas ici le cas. Il y a en réalité deux mouvements de gilets jaunes : un mouvement de terrain et un autre de l’opinion publique. Il y a dans les profondeurs de l’opinion une identification aux gilets jaunes. Cela va au-delà du soutien traditionnel aux mouvements sociaux, qui fonctionne généralement plus par sympathie que par identification. 

    L’absence d’interface entre le pouvoir légal (gouvernement) et le pouvoir légitime (les citoyens) nourrissent la violence l’absence de structuration du mouvement.

    Les citoyens s’adressent directement à l’Etat et usent d’un droit à l’insurrection, comme le formalise la Constitution américaine. Ce droit n’était plus exercé car nos sociétés ont construit des contre-pouvoirs et des corps intermédiaires, qui jouaient le rôle tampon entre l’Etat et les citoyens. Ce n’est plus le cas. 

    Un syndicalisme dépolitisé et institutionnalisé, volontiers enserré dans le carcan du « dialogue social » et doutant de ses propres capacités à mobiliser, se trouve aujourd’hui en situation d’être réduit au rang de fait social résiduel.

    Pour autant, rien n’est écrit d’avance. L’histoire syndicale plus que séculaire fournit à ceux qui croient encore à l’importance et à l’utilité des organisations des outils
dont le réinvestissement offre des perspectives de relance.
