The second Solicamp4Moria took place in Wil, the home of Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter. She was asked to open the doors to Switzerland for people on the move.
Thousands of people live at Europe’s external borders in rural camps where at most their basic needs for clean toilets, water, food and security are provided. A collective from eastern Switzerland wants to make this structure visible with the action form Solicamp.
Karin Keller-Sutter bears responsibility for the fact that people come to camps like Moria and are left there. Passers-by and activists wrote messages to the Minister of Justice on Saturday, which were summarised on a huge postcard. This was handed over at Karin Keller-Sutter’s house in Wil on Sunday afternoon.
It would have been surprising if she had accepted it. Even without her reaction, it is important and valuable to draw attention to the issue away from the big cities.
