“Stop Isolation” resists return centres and demands residence permits for a life in respect and dignity. Return centres are open prisons on the margins of society. We are isolated there. There are: restrictions on freedom, unpaid labour, living conditions that cause illness and stress due to the police, Securitas or ORS AG. Many think we are criminals, but we are not in Switzerland for fun, but because we can’t help it. We have been here for years – some of us for decades. We have lost a lot of time in our lives. Stop discriminating against us. Stop trying to deport us. We need respect and equality in access to work, housing, health and education. We are people too”.
