Mistress Gul, a tailor, an electrician, a girl and maybe a cat, together with 28 other people have been tortured and continue to be, for 3 weeks now, by Border Guards on the Polish border in Usnarz Górny. Polish Guards refuse to give them access to food, water and medication, day by day. 3 people in Wrocław: a librarian, a cashier and a student, have just started a resistance camp in front of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship’s Office. These brave people stand by those in a weaker position, demanding immediate medical aid access to the refugees. In Warsaw, some other girls, electricians and tailors just went on a hunger strike. People in whole country are demanding to let the refugees in and to guarantee them international protection and provide them both physical and psychological medical care. We will keep informing what is happening in front of the Office, during the next hours, as events evolve. Please spread the information, that the solidarity is stronger than weapons and barbed wire!

The statement of protestors occupying the Voivodeship Office in Wroclaw: No Border No Nation!

Wrocław Anarchists Call
As anarchists we deeply believe in the idea of cosmopolitanism and we consider national states a concept designed to turn people against each other in order to keep them from revolting against the authority. We are beginning an occupational strike at the Voivodeship Office in Wroclaw! Our demand is to allow medical aid to 32 people applying for a refugee status in Usnarz Górny. We will not leave this place until our demands are met. Resistance will last as long as it is necessary! The enemy is not at the border, but heating their asses in a luxury office.


(Our only demand : let in the medical aid to the refugees kept by force on Polish-Belorussian border under the orders of Polish Government).

4th day of occupation starts in front of Voivodeship Office, particularly calm. Another tent sprang up yesterday, so the camp grew a bit. We thank everyone for the visits, help and engagement! We will stay here as long as the refugees don’t receive medical aid. For now, what cheers us up is the information that Polish Red Cross contacted Belorussian one and they managed to deliver boxes with food and warm clothes!

Today we will hold a meeting to take decisions about the weekend and following actions. We will try to contact the voivoda (head of a voivodeship). We hope that today, despite of the Emergency state declared, doctors will be allowed to the refugees on the border and that we will be able to go home. Sadly, the refugees have no home to return to.

The Camp wakes up. We welcome the fifth day of occupation. It is Saturday, so we are not waken up by office workers coming at 6 in the morning to their offices. At the other hand, yesterday’s evening was full of adventures: a Party Bus came, full of clubbers and other people that talked with us. Some of them had no idea of what was happening on the border or had information only from the state TV. Also, as every other day, activists came to give us support, food and water. Only the Voivoda didn’t come, although we visited him with an invitation…

We do not know what is happening at the border and we are really worried. Ocalenie Foundation had to leave border area, so our friends are back to Wrocław. We have got no information that the refugees group at the border received any med support. so we feel obliged to continue the occupation.

_Today at 7pm we call for a spontaneous meeting in response to threats received from Wrocław neo-nazis, who announced their visit this afternoon. _

It is not an exaggeration to call them racial separatists, as for people from other cultures they only have disdain. Any idea of mutual aid is alien to them. Today the Press will surely get interesting subjects to cover and photograph.

So we invite everyone to come this afternoon and evening. FB event

We also encourage everyone to join the protest. More we are here, bigger the pressure we make. Join us with a tent at least for one night! Let’s wait together for the medicines and ambulance for the refugees! Hasta la victoria!

The camp is growing. Some people come to talk. Those who came back from the border explain what is the situation there. And the situation is hopeless. We are worried for our unknown, yet already befriended Afghans. We can’t understand why somebody (who?) is blocking there entrance to the ambulance. The Border Guards should be immediately suspended for exposing Afghans to risk of loosing health and life. We are though aware, that the power that now lets the Afghans starve, will surely not do anything in case of our hunger. As they are not allowing medical aid, we are worried that they will refuse it also to us. And to you. If one day we are forced to flee from this country, nobody will send a plane to rescue you or me, we will have to run away through forests. Jet planes are for the rich and influential ones. They always find their ways and then try to turn us against each-other. We do not agree for that. Company bosses, ministers, military, luxury house cleaners, bancsters, officials - they will manage their visas and planes. Us - the regular citizens, we have to help one another. Above the borders. If we help not the Afghans right now, nobody will help us in the future.

There are already 4 tents and between ten and twenty people. We are awaiting good news from the border, but those are only worse for now.

We wake up and wait for Border Guards to allow medical aid to the refugees. On Fundacja Ocalenie website you can read their comment about Polish attempt to introduce the state of emergency. Border crisis is a result only of carelessness of Polish Government - Border Guards should have taken asylum requests from all of those who strive for it. At least from 2016 we know that designing migratory policies is necessary, but Polish Government abandoned any such attempts, sweeping the issue under the carpet. We have no doubt that state of emergency is aiming to allow Border Guards to violate human rights with impunity.
