(en) Poland, Anarchist Federation (rozbrat): Statement on the attack on the police representative of the Roma community [machine translation]

Date Tue, 20 Sep 2016 20:16:54 +0300

On Tuesday, 2 August. Jon - from Romania Rom living in Poznan - asked for money staying at the traffic lights drivers. He was detained by the police. In the police car taken away his cup, which collected donations and blindfolded with a cloth. He heard also, if he wants to beg, it will amount to Romania. The torturers took him and threw podpoznanskim in the woods, picked up the money not the distance. ---- We know also other cases where the police or municipal police extorted by threats from Roma money or begging for leaving / entity whose peacefully demanded his fate. Representatives and representatives of the community were repeatedly robbed, intimidated and blackmailed. The police (not only Poznan) feel completely unpunished in contact with the Roma community of Romanian origin. Officers use their low economic status and the fact that the exclusion from the labor market and help system forces them to beg. Often they do not know the language and have difficulty with reading and writing in Polish. In such a situation it is very easy to steal and intimidate the Roma.

As Poznan Anarchist Federation oppose police violence and in solidarity with the victim. We also promise that we will not leave this matter and will seek to punish the police thugs. The days when they could with impunity prey on the weakest and most lonely, are over. Demonstrated by the police institutional racism is unacceptable.

At the same time it is worth noting that the unlawful actions of the police continues to worsen. Since the last time I protested Anarchist Federation (June 20 this year.) On police abuses, and numerous unexplained circumstances of the death on police stations, killed another person, this time at the police station in Zielona Gora. As we wrote in a statement released in June, "Statistics dot. Police crime show that only 3.5 per cent. Of the 16 thousand. Complaints of abuse by police prosecutors headed to court. Other discontinue or refusing to open proceedings. These figures relate to extracting confessions by the police, unlawful protect the interests of influential people and ill-treatment of detainees. In the case of extracting confessions beaten statistics are even worse: only 1.3 per cent. of cases ends in the indictment. "
