It took almost 10 months for Shafiullah Sadat to reach Belgium from his native Afghanistan, which he fled for fear of persecution by the Taliban. Since applying for asylum six weeks ago, his destiny has been to join the growing ranks of thousands of homeless migrants in Brussels.

“Everywhere I go, there are people sleeping on the streets,” says the 27-year-old, who lives rough near the so-called Petit-Château, an imposing building housing the federal authority responsible for welcoming refugees. “I never imagined it would be so difficult here.”

The number of asylum applications is increasing across Europe. As of August, applications in the EU, plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Liechtenstein, had increased by 58% this year compared to the same period in 2021, to reach 578,875, according to the agency. block asylum.

The increase, which is believed to partly reflect the easing of Covid-era travel restrictions, comes on top of the arrival of millions of Ukrainian refugees, whose claims for protection are being processed under a separate system. If people fleeing the Russian invasion are counted, the number of people seeking protection in Germany alone is 1.1 million, just below the total that arrived during the 2015-2016 Syrian refugee crisis. .

The influx fuels fears of a repeat of the divisions between EU member states six years ago over burden-sharing and asylum policy and puts a strain on cities in the region seeking to welcome The new comers.

Tents and sleeping bags have become commonplace along the canal in central Brussels, as well as in underpasses and train stations, as some asylum seekers are forced to wait months for shelter after being submitted applications.

“The reception system is completely overwhelmed,” said David Vogel of the health charity Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Belgium.

Poor sanitary conditions, including outbreaks of scabies and diphtheria, prompted MSF to take the unprecedented decision to set up an emergency clinic on the street outside the government building in central Brussels which handles requests for asylum.

Standing outside the clinic earlier this month, Vogel described the medical situation as “catastrophic”.

In Germany, cities are racing to set up shelters and convert gyms and hostels. Helmut Dedy, head of the Deutsche Städtetag, the Association of German Towns and Villages, sounded the alarm this month over rising numbers. “The absorptive capacity of many cities is exhausted,” he said. Municipalities lacked school places and “integration courses” for adult refugees.

Berlin says its shelters are all packed, with 1,600 asylum seekers and 1,200 Ukrainian refugees still waiting for accommodation. It plans to pitch tents, each capable of accommodating 400 people, at the former Tegel and Tempelhof airports.

Lioba Hebauer, spokeswoman for the Federal Agency for Migration and Refugees, or BAMF, linked the rise in numbers to political and economic pressures in a range of host countries as well as the “catch-up effects” of lifting of Covid restrictions.

The grim reception many are experiencing contrasts with the EU’s handling of the influx of Ukrainian refugees earlier this year.

As member states were praised for their swift response to the millions who fled Vladimir Putin’s invasion, migration tensions have started to boil over again at EU level.

Italy’s new right-wing prime minister Giorgia Meloni, who has refused to let a ship carrying 231 rescued Mediterranean migrants dock at an Italian port, has portrayed unchecked irregular migration from Africa and Asia as a threat to her country.

She complained that it is unfair for Italy to shoulder the burden of accommodating and processing asylum seekers, when for many new arrivals the country is just a gateway to the rest of Europe. The European Commission on Monday presented a plan to reduce “irregular and dangerous migration” ahead of a meeting of interior ministers on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Belgian government is subject to two judgments from the European Court of Human Rights regarding its failure to provide accommodation for asylum seekers.

“We will do everything in our power to fulfill our international obligations to operationalize emergency shelters as soon as possible in order to provide protection to those in need, but given the large influx of refugees, we have to admit that we are reaching our operational limits,” said a spokesperson for Nicole de Moor, Belgium’s state secretary for asylum and migration.

Belgium was facing “exceptional circumstances”, the spokesperson added, including a lack of staff to staff accommodation centers for asylum seekers, a lack of suitable accommodation and a reluctance by local authorities to open centres, given the need to house 60,000 Ukrainians. refugees.

Fedasil, the government agency for asylum seekers, said the country was trying to boost its capacity, including opening two temporary reception centers that can accommodate 500 people each. The Brussels Region plans to add 1,200 emergency reception places within its network of shelters for the homeless, she said.

However, Voyaach Helpdesk, a pro bono legal aid initiative involving leading law firms, estimates that there are at least 4,000 asylum seekers in Belgium awaiting refuge.

Cécile Ghymers, a lawyer at DNH Legal, which represents young asylum seekers, said that given the scarcity of available accommodation, even children – traditionally given priority – were sleeping rough.

Registered asylum seekers have a legal right to housing regardless of their age, she said, but “it’s dramatic and dangerous for children to be on the streets”.

On a morning earlier this month, Belgian police dispersed dozens of people who had slept outside the immigration center in an unsuccessful attempt to start their applications for international protection. Within minutes they were back in line as they prepared for another late night wait.

“You can feel the stress,” said Nathan Torrini, director of Serve the City, a charity that provides breakfast to asylum seekers. “The government has shown with the Ukrainian refugees that there is a better solution than this.”

Brussels


Around 150 students staged a protest in Brussels to decry the high cost of living and call on the Belgian government to provide greater support.


“We came to demonstrate because it is becoming very difficult to be a student, to be able to pay for our studies,” Emilia Hoxhaj, president of the Federation of Francophone Students (FEF) and student at the University of Mons, told Xinhua. news agency on Thursday.

“Our rents are going up, our bills are becoming unpayable and above all, we are also struggling to buy food from supermarkets, where everything is getting way too expensive.”

Jonathan Mongala, an economics student at the Free University of Brussels (ULB), said he had to take part-time jobs to pay for his studies and food, and as a result he had less time to study .

Florian Gillard, also a student at the ULB, campaigned for the remuneration of trainees.


“Students do a lot of internships and they are free to work. This is not normal. Whether it is in the hospital sector, where interns compensate for a lack of public funding for hospitals, or whether it is free work in companies, it is not acceptable, we have to be paid,” he said.

The measures taken by the government to deal with the cost of living crisis are insufficient, argues the FEF.

“Eighty thousand students are in a precarious situation, and more than a third of them do not receive scholarships,” said another student.

“The scholarship of 1,000 euros ($1,030) per year is insufficient.”


The FEF has five specific demands: it wants affordable student accommodation; student canteens with hot meals at the symbolic price of one euro; an increase in the value of scholarships; a public transport ticket at 12 euros for all students; and sufficient open and accessible school premises during the winter.

Before the current crisis, one in three students lived in poverty in Belgium, and this proportion will only increase without strong structural measures, argues the FEF.

The country’s statistical office said inflation in Belgium hit 12.27% in October, its highest level since June 1975.

The high inflation rate is mainly due to high energy prices. Food inflation stood at 12.30%.

Ghent University rents rooms in Bruges to help students find accommodation

The Bruges authorities want to monitor the situation and maintain a healthy housing balance

On November 10, the authorities of Ghent University in Belgium announced that they would rent 100 student accommodation in Bruges to facilitate access to housing. Since the university institution is located in the city of Ghent, students who live in the new accommodation will have to commute for more than 40 kilometers every day.

The university also stated that this accommodation is intended for students who cannot afford to go to the private market or international students who would otherwise have to avoid going to university. In addition, housing rent prices are classified as democratic, which means that tenants would be eligible for subsidies.

Finding accommodation “outside”

Basically, the decision came after the failure of the student accommodation project in Ghent itself, according to a press release. Today, the university administration says renting rooms on the private market would be a cheaper and faster way to provide housing.

In addition, the rooms are located near the Bruges train station, to provide better travel options, as the train journey between the two cities takes less 30 minutes. Authorities say there could be a possible expansion at the location to a total of 250 rooms.

In addition, Ghent University officials are also looking to find student accommodation in Kortrijk – another Belgian city located less than 50 kilometers from Ghent, with a similar rail offer. At the same time, the staff promised to expand the program and rent 500 rooms in the Ghent territory from 2024.

Long struggle to ease housing shortage

As the university said, many students find it difficult to find accommodation on the private market in Ghent, as it is one of the largest university cities in Belgium. Data from local authorities backs up the statement as in July 2021 the city published a study claiming that Ghent would need additional accommodation for 10,000 students.

This prompted a response from the local government, which launched an action plan to create more housing and asked universities to consult with the city when planning extensions to their programs so that the influx of students could be accommodated. managed more efficiently.

In addition, the city has launched an advisory service to help landowners near universities develop their land by student housing.

However, passing the housing shortage ball to other cities is also not a long-term option. As the TRV reports the alderman for students of Bruges, Mathijs Goderis, explained that currently there is no shortage of accommodation in the city. Nevertheless, local authorities should closely monitor the balance between supply and demand.

Salto de Castro is located on the border with Portugal in the province of Zamora.

Most of us dream of buying a house or a villa, but have you ever dreamed of buying an entire village? In interesting news, a Spanish village that has been uninhabited for over 30 years is currently up for sale for 227,000 Euros (Rs 2,16,87,831), according to a report by the BBC.

The village, Salto de Castro, is located on the border with Portugal in the province of Zamora and a three-hour drive from Madrid, Spain. It includes 44 accommodations, a hotel, a church, a school, a municipal swimming pool and even a barracks that once housed the Civil Guard, the newspaper added.

In the early 2000s, the owner bought the village with the aim of making it a popular tourist destination. The eurozone crisis, however, made it difficult for the plan to succeed. Ronnie Rodriguez, who works for Royal Invest, the company representing the owner, said BBC“The owner had the dream of having a hotel here but everything has been put on the back burner. He would still like the project to come true.”

The property was listed on Idealista, a Spanish property retail website. The website mentions that the owner said, “I’m selling because I’m a city dweller and can’t deal with inheritance or donation.”

“The investment necessary to make the village 100% exploitable and profitable would not exceed 2 million euros”, further specifies the real estate site.

The retail page reportedly received over 50,000 views. It has also attracted interest from over 300 parties from Britain, France, Belgium and Russia. “A potential buyer has already put in the money to book it,” Rodriguez said. BBC.

Since the 1950s, Iberduero, a power generation company, had housed employees building a reservoir nearby at Salto de Castro. However, once the work was completed, the employees left the village and it was totally abandoned in the 1980s.

Brussels [Belgium]November 9 (ANI): The European Commission on Wednesday proposed an unprecedented support package for Ukraine of up to 18 billion euros for 2023. This will take the form of highly concessional loans, disbursed in regular installments from 2023.
This stable, regular and predictable financial assistance – averaging €1.5 billion per month – will help to cover a significant part of Ukraine’s short-term financing needs for 2023, which the Ukrainian authorities and the International Monetary Fund estimate at 3 to 4 billion euros per month. The support offered by the EU should be accompanied by similar efforts from other major donors to cover all of Ukraine’s funding needs for 2023.
With this package, the EU intends to help Ukraine pay salaries and pensions and maintain the functioning of essential public services, such as hospitals, schools and accommodation for relocated people.
“It will also allow Ukraine to ensure macroeconomic stability and restore critical infrastructure destroyed by Russia in its war of aggression, such as energy infrastructure, water supply systems, transport networks, roads and bridges,” the commission said.

“Support under the Instrument will be accompanied by reforms, to further strengthen the rule of law, good governance, anti-fraud and anti-corruption measures in Ukraine. Therefore, while taking into account developments on the ground, financial support will be framed by political conditions, aimed at strengthening Ukraine’s institutions and preparing the ground for a successful reconstruction effort, as well as supporting Ukraine on its European path “, said the 27-member bloc.
In addition, the commission said the funds will be provided through highly concessional loans, to be repaid over a maximum period of 35 years, starting in 2033.
“In another expression of solidarity, the EU also offers to cover Ukraine’s interest costs, through additional targeted payments by Member States to the EU budget. EU Member States and third countries will also be able to add additional funds to the instrument, to be used as grants, if they wish.The funds will then be channeled through the EU budget, allowing Ukraine to receive support in a coordinated manner,” the block added.
The Russian-Ukrainian conflict which began eight months ago shook Europe. The European Union and its Member States have shown solidarity with people fleeing war.
The Union immediately mobilized support for the Ukrainian government to maintain its essential functions, in addition to the emergency and humanitarian aid and military assistance provided to Ukraine. (ANI)

Around the world, people are increasingly concerned about the environment and expect brands to use more ethical production and resource management techniques. As well as influencing the fashion industry and affecting the way products are made, it is also becoming more prevalent inside homes and workplaces.

WHAT IS CYCLING?

If everyone has already understood recycling, what about pre-cycling, down-cycling and up-cycling? Pre-cycling, as you might have guessed, is a sort of processing approach that involves using paper bags rather than plastic ones. Due to technical challenges, downcycling refers to the recycling of high quality materials into something of lower quality. Making park seats and spindles out of used turbine blades is a vivid illustration of this (you can’t do anything else with them anyway). Upcycling is the latest and most intriguing thing. It is the reuse of the finished material without trying to recycle it.

Products created from recycled materials are environmentally friendly and, in addition, their existence significantly reduces the amount of waste.

Recycled materials can be used to produce anything since the characteristics of recycled raw materials are almost as good as those of primary raw materials.

The eco-trend has swept the design world in a high wave. Currently, many companies are engaged in the production of furniture forms from recycled materials. Designers and architects around the world use different types of recycled materials in their work.

patch fashion

Recycling things is familiar to people from ancient times. Since ancient times, our ancestors sewed clothes and knitted mats from scraps. Recycling was not due to fashion or concern for the environment. The fabric was expensive, and its production was complicated.

Designers today are not turning to recycled fabrics and other materials due to scarcity. Conscious consumption comes first. In many countries, environmental awareness has become fashionable. Unsurprisingly, fashion designers have picked up the trend. An additional interest is to work with vintage and unique fabrics.

A limited edition of dresses made from rare fabric samples from the 60s and 70s, kimonos made from sewn vintage handkerchiefs, jackets with patches, and more. Vintage fabrics are more about aesthetics and exclusivity than ecology, but it’s also upcycling.

“House of many colors”?

There are no laws or regulations when it comes to upcycling. And that’s the main thing that allows us to use it everywhere!

With the advent of recycling technology, it is even possible to build entire houses in addition to creating unique furniture and interior decoration. Most of them are not luxury villas, of course, but they still managed to occupy a particular niche in the housing market.

Container houses are no longer something special, but a Buddhist temple made of beer bottles has been built by Thai architects, who have gone even further. Who came up with the idea of ​​using such an unusual material to build a sacred space is unknown, but the idea was quickly executed and proved successful. The temple was constructed from several thousand glass bottles with corks, the corks being used for the distinctive mosaic inside the temple and the brown and green glass bottles being used on the exterior walls to give the place its original appearance.

Good old interior design

As far as interior decoration is concerned, upcycling is particularly used in the vintage style. From jewelry to interior items. Even a luxury sofa set could be made from recycled materials. Add caskets, bracelets, vases and lamps which can transform any boring and ordinary bedroom or hall interior into a vintage mansion with exquisite and comfortable atmosphere.

Even modern offices are affected by the trend:

The design studio Jens Praet from Belgium has created a collection of Shredded paper furniture. The name suggests where the designers get the materials: shredded paper from the shredder is mixed with rubber resin and pressed. The result produces a composite material that is as strong as wood. This is how the company creates office furniture – where the raw paper comes from. An average day in a large office “produces” 3-5 kg ​​of scrap – enough to create a chair.

Your new old place

From its cost-effectiveness and fantastic opportunities for creative activity to its positive effects on the environment, upcycling has many valuable benefits. This eco-trend is gaining acceptance and appeal at a rapid pace for this purpose.

It includes comparable artistic endeavors like quilting, cardboard, lampwork, or fine art plastic.

And you can create each of them yourself:

Small hangers made from pitchforks or a larger rack created from a bicycle, chandeliers made from glass bottles, rugs or shoe coasters made from bottle caps, pennies – glasses made from coat hangers and mirrors made from badminton rackets can all be handcrafted for minimal the price.

The future of upcycling

For many years, many environmental organizations have been trying to increase the level of environmental responsibility around the world and promote green lifestyles. Young people understand that the problem of garbage is becoming more and more serious and must be solved as soon as possible. This is why upcycling ideas will become more and more developed over the years and we hope that our article has succeeded in inspiring you to reuse old things for upcycling.

Texas apple seed bills itself as an Austin-based “public interest justice center” for “changing unjust laws and policies” involving juvenile justice. Specifically, the nonprofit works to “dismantle unjust laws” that “unduly burden historically undeserved Texans” – meaning minority children are unfairly punished in the school system at a higher rate. than white children.

In a letter sent to ISD Dallas last year, the AT wrote, “According to Texas Education Agency data, 6,802 Black students and 5,906 Latinx students were suspended out of DISD school. in the 2018-2019 school year, as against only 363 white students.”

Black students, it is said, made up 22.6% of the DISD student population while they accounted for 46.7% of out-of-school suspensions.

This disparity is meant to prove that the education and juvenile justice systems are “systematically racist” against minorities. To bolster this charge, the TA freely and frequently invokes the specter of George Floyd’s death at the hands of the police.

JDAI

Texas apple seed reflects the Alternative initiative to juvenile detention (JDAI) which was championed by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. In fact, the Annie E. Casey Foundation sits on Texas Appleseed Materials.

For many years, the director of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, today its “consultant”, was Bart Lubow. Lubow is a former SDS member (Students for a Democratic Society)a communist front organization of the 1960s.

Like other Marxist-oriented agitators, Lubow, through the JDAI program (Alternative initiative to juvenile detention), “will compel states to work to reduce the disproportionate representation of minors belonging to minorities in secure facilities. The problem? Too many minorities are punished because of white “racism”. The solution? Reorganize detention and incarceration procedures as well as school suspensions in the direction of “social justice”.

Social justice

Social justice has little to do with actual ‘justice’, but focuses attention on ‘results’. Social justice advocates continually lament the unequal distribution of property, money, college degrees, and even prison sentences. From now on, school discipline should be governed by racial quotas.

As the late Walter Williams observed of social justice, “the outcomes of human relationships are often seen as criteria for the presence or absence of justice or fairness. Outcomes frequently used as barometers of justice and fairness are: racial and gender statistics on earnings and unemployment, overall income distribution, occupational distribution, ownership of wealth, and other measures of socio-economic status. »

In other words, no attention is paid to underlying reason for differences between people of different races. Social justice simply assumes that different outcomes between people are the result of gross prejudice, favoritism, and white racism. This is exactly the tacit assumption of Texas apple seed.

What social justice and Texas apple seed what the Warriors refuse to consider is that differences in behavior between peoples, races, or subcultures are the result of diverse habits, personal choices, cultural preferences, and moral values ​​honored by various groups in America.

For example, out-of-wedlock birth rates for different racial and ethnic groups in 2008 were just over 40%. Breaking down this statistic shows that among non-Hispanic white women, the out-of-wedlock birth rate was 28.6%, while among Hispanics it was 52.5% and among blacks the figure jumps to one. surprising 72.3%.

Consider abortion. In 2005, the abortion rate for blacks in the United States was nearly 5 times higher than for white women. Similar “disparities” are found in almost all measurable statistics. It is clearly evident that minority cultures encourage immoral lifestyles to an alarming degree.

One would expect from these types of statistics that school discipline issues would fall in the same racial direction. And that is exactly what we see.

Still, Texas apple seed wants us to believe that it is white racism that brings the penalty. The unvarnished truth is that the black fatherless home and communities, for the most part, do not value ethical standards, and this shows up in the classroom as well.

Pipeline from school to prison?

Texas apple seed also speculates that the higher rate of discipline in school experienced by minorities creates what they call a “school-to-prison pipeline”. The underlying assumption here is that it is the schools themselves which, through their prejudices against minorities, contribute to manufacturing the criminals of tomorrow. It’s completely unfounded.

From AT letter to DISD:

“Through the use of exclusionary discipline and school policing, thousands of young Texans are brought into contact with the criminal justice system each school year because of the behaviors that occur in their schools.”

TA’s message? Stop punishing children, especially minority students. It is the contact with the criminal justice system that is the cause of the misconduct.

The reality itself is quite different. Our schools are becoming war zones, even at the elementary level, and not just because of outside influences. The children themselves become more and more violent, totally disrespectful of the authority of adults, disdainful of the private property and personal freedoms of others.

Illicit sex and births out of wedlock have become normal; sexual assault on school grounds is now a problem; drugs of all kinds are now commonplace in learning rooms; gang activity dominates some schools; and teachers are assaulted.

Bedlam actually reigns in many schools. The teachers are fleeing the classrooms and the others are just trying to survive. And the majority of them come from minority populations where it is most common for a child to grow up without the loving discipline or guidance of a father.

Nope, Texas apple seed, it is not a “School-Prison Pipeline”, but a “Home Without Father-Prison Pipeline”. Children come from home in the school system with unscrupulous conduct. More often than not, removing an unruly student from the classroom or the school itself is the only alternative for a school wishing to teach.
