Germany: Refugees, activists protest poor conditions at Kassel camp

Germany, Kassel
September 28, 2015 at 13:28 GMT +00:00 · Published

Dozens of people staged a protest in Kassel, Monday in front of the building of the Administrative Government against the conditions in which refugees are sheltered in at Camp Calden.

The rally was partially organised by residents of Camp Calden. They want to bring attention to the conditions they are living in. Refugees also criticised the lack of information on the time they will spend at the shelter, and on the asylum procedure.

The refugees reported that sanitary installations like toilets and showers are not being provided for with regard to the amount of people living there. They also spoke of a lack of privacy and primary medical care. A refugee said that the shelter was originally a garage for cars.

The protesters also expressed their fears, that many of them will still be brought to tents in the winter and that the conditions will only be deteriorating.

On Sunday clashes at the camp, which houses some 1,500 refugees, left 14 people with minor injuries.
