(en) Czech, AFED: A3: The Blessings of an Old Catholic Racist [machine translation]

Date Mon, 25 Jan 2021 09:34:38 +0200


Anyone can end up on the street. When it comes to a Roma family, this is doubly true. Download, print and distribute the January issue of the A3 wall newspaper! ---- We have Christian holidays behind us, so what do you remember about some of the blessings? One is so Catholic and so sincere that it would bring tears to one's eyes. The pastor and mayor Roland Solloch, sponsor and protégé of the YES movement in his godly post in Varnsdorf, told the people of his town to move out of the town or to join the business with poverty. He did not recommend homelessness to them - according to the subsidy rules in his city, he would not recognize this status for them. They carefully sort their sheep.
The idea that you will lose housing and have nowhere to go sucks at all times. What if it's cold, it's below zero outside, and the snow exceptionally lasts longer than a day? In addition, when there is a hard lockdown and you have nowhere to warm up, and we have an established police party? And if you are not a member of the majority, do you have darker skin and, moreover, your previous residence was in a declared excluded locality? You already have so much bad luck in you that you just can't get out of it and at least a little normal or affordable housing is taboo for you. Systemic racism will not be covered by the coronavirus crisis. And the mayor is a natural part of it.

Several families from Varnsdorf in North Bohemia got into this situation. At the end of last year, the new owner of the apartments they rented is evicted and they now have nowhere to go. They got into this mess due, among other things, to several long-term systemic difficulties that (not only) poorer and especially Roma people have to deal with.

"So let it be like normal decent people!" Even so, one of the arguments of white "decent Czechs", who are so happy to comment on this topic, sounds. Let's leave aside the fact that even a job not as easy for Roma as white people - a vicious circle of prejudices (Roma don't want to work - do they want these, will you give them a job? - I won't give because they don't). and they have a job, they face the same discrimination. In one of the families that now found itself without a roof over their heads, the Baláž family, both parents work, and both even work for a city run by the doctor of theology Solloch. They are known as good workers, nor do they have rent debts.

The Affordable Housing Initiative calls on the city to help families. This is fenced off by the fact that it has offered families alternative housing. Yes, he was offered to leave the city or go to the TGM hostel. It is declared one of the worst hostels in the country. There is no privacy (kitchen and bathroom common to the whole floor, total capacity overload, etc.). Children do not have the conditions to learn in peace (even if the government opens schools and stops making school children hostage epidemics).

Hostels have become a vulgar white business with black poverty. There are incredibly high rental prices because the owners use them to pay for the benefits. Housing prices are usually not set on the basis of square meters, but on how many people live in the unit. How they recruit as many people as possible into the war cattle here and collect benefits from them that will help them deal with them. It is no different in the TGM hostel in Varnsdorf. Payment for the city hostel TGM is 121 crowns for an adult and 60 crowns per day for a child! Cunek wouldn't have gone to it either, and he was receiving social benefits. The hostel is in a desolate state, and yet housing for Baláž's would cost CZK 15,600 per month. This is the amount for which you can rent a luxury apartment "for demanding clients" in a similar location. If you are not Romani.

It is a pity that Varnsdorf does not have social housing. Ah, yes. The city bought about twenty flats from poverty traders and reconstructed them into social housing with money from European funds. But it is housing only for whites, says the mayor.

Currently, the housing situation is difficult for many people. But if you are Romani and also from an excluded locality, this is nothing new for you. Even if you try your best, to humiliate yourself by proving that you live properly, work and will be saved on bail, you will not achieve normal or at least a little dignified housing, an epidemic of non-epidemics. And the mayor of the Old Catholic Home Church explains to us that we "receive from Jesus what we need and how much." So we thank him very much and let all the racists fuck off.

Amen.
