(en) France, CNT-AIT: Anarchosyndicalisme #185 - Scandal in Montauban (ca, de, fr, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 1 Apr 2024 10:14:08 +0300

Not only is the fact of relegating young unaccompanied minors, awaiting a decision concerning them for the non-recognition of their minority by the courts, unbearable, as are the isolation and lack of support for these young people, both in terms of: ---- educational, cultural: discovery of food for example, ---- - linguistic: most speak little French or understand it with difficulty. ---- They remain without legal help to recover papers, often left in the country, attesting to their identity, nationality and age. ---- Some of them have been surviving in this context for more than six months, remaining in rooms most of the time.

What is happening at ASE 82?

Providing accommodation at the Villenouvelle hotel at 67 euros per night with breakfast seems to be enough for this one.
But we don't leave a group of young strangers, even if turnover is significant, without ensuring that daily life is considered.
Without giving them the minimum amount of language learning so that everyday communication is quickly assimilated. Without giving them access to leisure activities like any young Montalbanese

But where the scandal is qualified is access to daily, healthy and balanced food. For years, young people had received meal vouchers and went to get the same type of food, lunch and dinner, in a fast-food restaurant in the city center. Under pressure from the Tarn et Garonnais Collective, concerned with migrants, refugees and unaccompanied minors, a new service provider was appointed and is currently delivering meals.
But for the past two weeks, tongues have been loosening; young people have been reduced to relying on the population for food. The hotel's trash cans for several weeks showed meals, not taken by the young people. Shift in eating habits? Why not.

But on January 26, we were told about meals delivered, spoiled, inedible: we think we are dreaming!

We were warned by young people who contacted us, we met them, which led us to send an email to the attention of the ASE on January 30, which has remained unanswered to this day. We knew that the ASE had moved and was taking the situation into account. The meal provider would have been contacted. But he maintains the confidence of the ASE in the meantime.

Wait for what? We do not know. A trip to the emergency room for food poisoning?

Last Sunday, February 4 in the afternoon, a young person contacted us again: He was simply hungry. He was only offered dry cuckoo seed as a meal.
Hotel employees do their best to compensate for this situation. They confirm to us that young people are afraid to demand what international law guarantees them. Room, board, care and education as long as justice does not invalidate their minority. They are afraid of the services and distrust the ASE staff.
Child Welfare is the service supposed to protect them. Their file is managed by the latter, which evaluates them, and which therefore has power over each conclusion: Confirmed minority or contested minority.
So until now, they were silent.

In the present case, we are entitled to question the objectives of such a welcome, if not the strict implementation of the Valls circulars and the Darmanin law with the close collaboration of a security service. and sorting more than protection, on which justice relies to invalidate the minority of these young people.

According to our information, a significant number of young people are not even waiting for the verdict of this unfair system, and they disappear from the radar, adding to the statistics of minors and young adults in an irregular or undocumented situation.

We proposed, without waiting for an institutional response, the immediate creation of a monitoring group, and we welcome any proposal for action to ensure that these young people regain consideration and dignity.
