    Rough translation of a comment in ak – analyse & praxis (https://www.facebook.com/pages/ak-analyse-kritik-Zeitung-f%C3%BCr-linke-Debatte-und-Praxis/183921262475?fref=ts)

    »Now relax. But don’t relax too long, because our fight is not over.« (inhabitant, yesterday 11 pm)
    A few words about the agreement of yesterday evening

    yesterday night at 9:30 several inhabitants stepped outside the door of the school and presented the results of the negotiations with the Bezirk. Media from Berlin and outside Berlin had already reported an agreement in the afternoon. at that time, the inhabitants were still stating that there was no agreement yet.

    At 9:30 several inhabitants of the school and some politicians of the city council who were in charge of the negotiations (and Ströbele) presented the results to the media representatives. Main results are: the people can stay in a part of the building during the renovations (it will be made into an “international refugee center” – whatever that means), they will get house passes, monthly benefits according to the Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz”, and their files will be sent to Berlin.

    The school will not be evicted, the inhabitants will not be persecuted legally for the occupation of the school. The Bezirk shall support them in their ongoing fight for the residency with the Senate.(https://ohlauerinfopoint.wordpress.com/2014/07/02/transkription-der-verlesung-der-vereinbarung-mit-dem-bezirksamt)

    However, there are a few problems with this “agreement”. first: a residency, the most important demand of the inhabitants, is not included. Frank Henkel, senator of the interior, could grant it, bt doesn’t want to. Because of that it was not even part of the negotiations.
    Second, the agreement does not help all inhabitants – p.e. those who are in Germany illegally or whose requests for asylum were already turned down have nothing to be examined, not even if in a “well-intentioned way.
    Third, it is still completely unclear what will happed to those who are homeless since 9 days, those who used to live in the school but were not there at the time of the eviction. Their belongings are partly still in the school, their documents, for days they have been moving from one sleeping place to the other. What will happen to them? The original “offer” of the Bezirk? The “agreement”? Nothing?
    Four, not all inhabitants are happy with the agreement. At least two people objected to it, maybe more, that was still unclear yesterday night.

    As the agreement has some practical consequences (entrance controls, house passes, living area etc.), the question of how to push them through will arise. The Bezirk is apparently hoping for a solution like at Oranienplatz: A part of the group will enforce it against the others. The Bezirk itself is safely out, it has negotiated a result.

    an inhabitant of the school declared that people were sad about the results as there is no residency. During a phone conference from the roof to the supporters at the cormer of Ohlauer/Reichenberger Straße after the presentation feelings were mixed: relief as the acute menace of eviction had been taken back, and disappointment as there is no right of resideny. All inhabitants are extremly weakened, for days they have been sleeping not more than two hours, all the back and forth, eviction or no eviction, that was an enormous strain.

    One inhabitant thanked the supporters in tears, but also declared:
    »Now relax. But don’t relax too long, because our fight is not over.«

    The inhabitants of Gerhart-Hauptmann-Schule have won the temporary right to stay in the school, they have successfully resisted the silencing and prevented an unseen ending of the fight. Once again, they have gained more attention for their demands, and they have gained great suppport and a lot of solidarity in the neighbourhood. That is something to built up on. Now we need to be alert about the implementation of the agreement (at Oranienplatz, already a few weeks later it was not worth the paper it was written on). Plus, those inhabitants who have become homeless in the last days need support. what will happen to them, is not a minor matter. And the puiblic pressure for a residency according to § 23 needs to be continued. The fight for the residency in Germany and against German and European asylum politics is nbot over at all.

    This saturday at 2 pm, a huge demonstration starts at Hermannplatz, let’s meet there!
