Tunisia: REJECTED ASYLUM SEEKERS IN CHOUCHA REFUGEE CAMP

We are a group of asylum seekers, whose claims were not accorded the proper considerations by the UNHCR emergency protection Team in Tunisia. We are writing regarding an official plan to close the Choucha refugee camp in June 2013, leaving us without any suitable or durable solutions. (Disenfranchised).
For more than two years, we have been languishing in the desert Makeshift remote region.
Our present living condition in the Choucha Camp exceeds our capacity to bear (Our feeding rations has been cut off since the past 5 Months).
Mindful of the fact that there are many families with children, single Men and Women as well as pregnant women in this plight, we are appealing for your consideration to support our objection to such cruel decisions that is already starving and frustrating many human beings in the camp.

Our main argument is the unjustified and un-professional manners with which our cases were treated.
In view of the aforementioned, we have embarked on a struggle since the past one year and also made a Manifestation to the EU delegation in Tunisia and the UNHCR from Jan. 27 – Feb. 03, 2013.

OUR DEMANDS;

To be accorded Asylum protection.

To be granted International protection in a safe third country (a Country with effective system of Protection).
