(en) Switzerland, Refugees, housing as a constraint and distancing by Libertarian Socialist Organization OSL-Vaud (fr) [machine translation]

Since the mid-1980s, the Asylum Act has not ceased to learn revisions chain from péjorer drastically lives of exiles. Asylum policy is officially defined as a policy of "deterrence" against réfugié.es potentiel.le.s and "reference" against those who are entré.es Switzerland ---- In this context, the cantonal and federal authorities have done everything to isolate socially candidat.es asylum and to prevent build relationships in Switzerland. This is how you break the solidarity ... ---- Housing réfugié.es then logically used as a weapon of deterrence policy. Specifically, it requires the asylum candidat.es to appear in federal registration centers, where they are kept sometimes several weeks, with output restriction and prohibition of visits.

Then this is the assignment imposed on a canton determined, then the collective shelters offering living conditions. Importantly, these homes are deliberately placed away from large cities and public transport. In addition, with planning problems deliberately created, it uses more than most civil defense shelters. At least réfugié.es have demonstrated the inability to live decently in the long term in this kind of structure ... A State Councilor Vaud suggested to assign seats weapons, to make living targets, perhaps?

It is only after several months or years, as candidat.es to asylum may, depending on the cantons have the chance to have an apartment. But it depends most often u social organism, in the canton of Vaud EVAM.

Sign of discriminatory treatment réfugié.es, we do not even consider as tenants or in group homes or in apartments governed by EVAM. Protection of the right of lease is denied. A social exclusion adds legal exclusion, a world of exceptional right reserved for this category of the population.
By 2003, the situation has worsened with the generalization of those rejected for asylum of "relief", a bare minimum of survival. Thousands of people, men only friends also families and children were put on the street, torn from their apartments or group homes EVAM. Different devices cantonal join to make the "emergency aid" a true measure of stress state for a push start.

To exert maximum pressure on débouté.es asylum, the authorities confine débouté.es in households that can not accommodate them at night, with a minimum of up to a few personal effects. Sometimes there is even no safe place to leave your things.

The réfugié.es venu.es are seeking protection in Switzerland. It offers them only coercion and deterrence, and housing plays an important role in the strategies of exclusion state. Official reports show that we are trying to prevent the meeting between them and the majority of people, the isolation is indeed thought as a weapon to prevent movement of solidarity. The fate of réfugié.es should not be thought of as different from ours: they were used as guinea pigs for social measures that are applicable to other populations precarious. Against the inhumanity of the asylum policy official, it is more urgent than ever to proclaim a right to housing, right to the city, and a right to belong to the community of human beings.
