Grand Saconnex, Geneva, Switzerland – Sabotage against the federal camp project
August 8, 2018by actforfreedom
Attack on the office of the architects who are drawing up the plans for the future camp for undocumented migrants at Grand-Saconnex No federal camp at Grand-Saconnex !
Camps for undocumented migrants are spreading inside and outside Europe. In Switzerland, 20 new federal centres for people seeking asylum are being built. This euphemism should not hide the character of their management, control and isolation that is on the increase.
At Grand-Saconnex, near Geneva, a complex of this kind is being planned right now (federal camp, police, border guards, international police). In drawing up its plans, the architects’ office « Berrel Berrel Kreutler » of Basel and Zurich is part of this new regime. Its architecture of an exuberant imagination is actually part of the architecture of the camps in Europe – a cold, brutal restrained universe – in isolation and cut off from others. These are repressive ideas poured into concrete that are springing up everywhere today. Last week, we confronted this architectural firm with its responsibilities by breaking its windows and tagging slogans on its façade.
