Protectas is a company that systematically uses violence against refugees. Their business model is to detain people in prison-like federal asylum centers and stifle conflict through violence and displays of force.
In February, Protectas employees in the Perreux centre locked a person in a refrigerated container until his body temperature dropped to 33 degrees and he had to be hospitalized. Every day they harass, beat, kick and insult people in the federal asylum centres. These are not isolated cases due to the staff of Protectas, but a deliberate system of oppression and precariousness so that the hope of obtaining asylum melts away and the wait becomes unbearable.
On the night of September 28, 2021, in Berne (Switzerland), we torched a Protectas car with paraffin barbecue lighters. Let’s sabotage their tools, their offices, their work routes….. until everyone is free!
