Refugee Community in Zella-Mehlis demand for the right to live a free life
in Germany

We are calling for solidarity and support!
We want normal housing! Not in the refugee lager - camp</b>
We are the asylum seekers living in Industrie.str 29, Zella Mehlis lager

- We want to tell the world that our situation got worse and worse day
after day, especially in winter, when we suffer the most from the cold.

- We live in an old lager, with old doors, broken windows, mildew
(schimmel) in the rooms, in shower rooms and toilets , corridors, schimmel
is everywhere, a lot got sick, their health
situation getting worse, a lot of families and Babies living in such
terrible conditions.

- The warm water is not stable, and the heating is completely absent from
a long years according to the people who lives here for a long time now ,
rooms are cold , and very cold when temperature gets under -10° c.

- We live in rooms with small ironic beds from the dark ages, we can't
sleep even like human does. the bed's cloths is old, they keep washing it
from few years and giving it back to us every Wednesday.

- We are around 75 residents in this lager, most of us don't get any
money, no voucher for cloths, except voucher for food, which can't be used
to buy anything else except food.

- We cannot get a permission to visit the doctor when we get sick, we get
it when social worker wants to give.

- We are isolated from the world, with all what has the word 'Isolation'
of means.

- We are punished just because we are asylum seekers here in Germany.

with that been said, we are the asylum seekers of zella mehlis demand:

1. This lager TO BE CLOSED, and to live in normal apartments, where we can
have some of our dignity back.

2. We refused to be paid by voucher(gutschein), and to have more rights
for cash money(taschen geld),and cloths.

3. We ask for to be given permission to visit the doctor right when we are
sick, and we refuse to wait for the permission.

4. We ask the socialamt to give the 'green light' to the doctors and the
dentists to have a better examination and treatment.

5. The right for freedom of movement.

6. stop terrorizing people by the deportation subject .and stop deportation.

7. we ask for a better psychological care

8. German authorities claiming, Germany a country of democracy.... .

I ask the authorities a favor ... please, from the problems listed above,
