> LOST AT BORDER – A journey to the lost and the dead of the Greek borders
> LOST AT BORDER reports on the reality of loss and death at the Greek borders. As a close friend of ours said once: “If you are a refugee and you die nobody asks any questions. But for living somewhere, everybody is questioning you!” We want to break the silence and ask: What happened with all these people whose traces got lost?

> The EDRi papers, EDITION 02
> The purpose of this booklet is to briefly outline current EU surveillance and security measures in order to give an insight into their scale and cumulative effect. In order to be legal under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, each security measure that limits fundamental rights is understood to be effective and a “necessary” and “proportionate” breach of the rights which our society considers to be fundamental.

> Humanitarian organizations call to action to help homeless migrants in Denmark
> In Denmark there are homeless migrants, for whom the dream of a job and a better life has ended in homelessness and social marginalization. They spend the night on mattresses in damp basements or parks, and are struggling to make it through the day. They live a miserable life on the street without fundamental rights or the opportunity to get the needed help in order to get off the streets and move on with their lives. Four private organizations, all working with vulnerable and homeless people, want to change the situation for the homeless migrants in Denmark. They have started a campaign to persuade the Danish politicians to take responsibility and solve the difficult situation concerning the homeless migrants. The four organizations are Kirkens Korshaer, Hovedstadens Red Cross Denmark, Missionen blandt Hjemlose and projekt UDENFOR. The organizations have amongst others invited the mayor of Copenhagen Frank Jensen and the Minister for European Affairs Nicolai Wammen to a discussion about the situation. Lack of counseling, medical care and recognition of problems The organizations have the following suggestions for improving the situation for the homeless migrants in Denmark: Proper advice to migrants about the Danish labor market. Access to existing services such as medical and health services. Political initiative to put strategies and concrete proposals to improve the situation for homeless migrants on the agenda during the Danish EU Presidency.

> The Arab Spring and the death toll in the Mediterranean: the true face of Fortress Europe
> Throughout the uprisings in North Africa, the EU has maintained a discourse of double standards: supporting calls for freedom and democracy but greeting resulting population displacement with hostility.

> (Sp/Fr)The ongoing disgrace of detention centres
> Two reports on detention centres have been published in Spain and France that highlight a situation in which foreigners are experiencing conditions that are often worse than those in prisons as a result of administrative offences (irregular residence) and an aim to maximise the rates of detention and returns. This has led to large-scale violations of human rights and to policies that reduce judicial oversight and the possibility of detained foreigners to effectively exercise their rights through judicial proceedings and access to effective remedies.

> (FR) Racial profiling and anti-poor byelaws
> An anti-chiffonnage (literally anti-"rag-and-bone activities") byelaw was adopted on 21 October 2011 by a French municipality, Nogent-sur-Marne in the southeast of Paris. It replaced a previous byelaw that had been adopted on 5 October 2011 prohibiting "scavenging" in public bins (fine of 38 Euros). [1] The anti-chiffonnage byelaw was suspended by the Administrative Court of Melun on 22 November 2011 after the Human Rights League launched a successful simplified appeal procedure: this leads to the temporary suspension of a decision, until a more in-depth investigation and decision is made by the Tribunal.
