Statement o the Yeousu Detention Center Fire that Killed migrants in detention
                                           Date: Fri, 23 Feb 2007 18:13:18 -0800 (PST)

Kinokondena sa pinakamataas na antas ang kapabayaan ng immigration at pamahalaang Korea sa mga pagdurusa ng mga migranteng manggagawa. Nanawagan kami ng agarang pagtigil sa crackdown at atake sa karapatan ng mga migrante sa Korea.

Kami ay nakikifdalamhati at nakikiramay sa pagkamatay ng mga migranteng Chinese at Uzbek at pagkasunog t sugat ng marami pang iba matapos na masunog ang Detention Center sa Yeousu Nakikramay kami sa mga kaanak at kaibigan.

Nakapangingit-ngit sa galit ang pagtrato at kawalan ng proteksyon sa pasilidad na kawangis ng paglabag sa karapatang pantao at pang-aabuso. Dumaranas na nga ng matinding takot dahil sa pagkakaroon ng malawakang crackdown, ito pa ang sasapitin ng mga nade-detain. Bago pa man ang insisdenteng ito ay marai nga kaso ang naiulat ng mga marahas na pamamaraan ng panghuhuli at taktik ang immigration na nagreresulta ng pagkasugat, pagkabali ng mga buto, galos at iba pang pinsala. Kinokondena naming ang ganitong pamamaraan katulad ng pagkondena namin sa nagaganap na crackdown. Kung mismong ang karapatan ng mga mangagagwa ay hindi kinikilala at napoprotektahan, ano pa ang aasaha natin sa mga nahuhuli at nakukukong sa detention center.

Ang isyung ito ay hindi lamang nakatuon sa makataong pagtrato sa mga nahuhuling undocumented migrants, ito ay isyu ng kung paano itrato at mas palubhain ang kalunos-lunos nang kalagayan ng mga migrantng manggagawa. Mas lalong pinatitindi ng gobyernong Korea ang pagdurusa dahil sa pagpapatupad ng hindi makatarungan at EPS at Trainee Sysytem. Hindi nakapagtataka na kahit gaano pa pabonggahin o palamutian ang kanilang mga anunsyo hinggil sa EPS, mas lalo pang dumarami ang napipilitang nag-sisialis sa mga factory nila dala ng kahirapan at kawalang katarungan at di makataong trato at pagsasamantala. Mas pinoprotektahan niito ang interes ng mga kapitalista kaysa sa kalagayan ng mga migrante.

SANA kung may makatarungan na Work permit system o tunay at makatarungang legalisasyon, ay di sana wala nang mapang-alipin na EPS and Trainee system. SANA wala nang lalabag sa ating karapatan na magtutulak sa kanila at mapilitang maging undocumented, SANA hindi dadanasin ang malupit na crackdown. SANA hindi na sila makukulong dahil lamang sa paghahanapbuhay para sa ating mga pamilya.

Subalit HINDI!. Ito ang nagaganap sa Korea. Napakadaming ¡°SANA¡±¡¦ Napakadaming nawasak na mga pangarap, napakaraming pamilyang nagdusa. Napakaraming pinagkaitan ng karapatan na magtrabaho at mamuhay ng marangal. Napakaraming nilabag na karapatan.

Kung ganun, maari nating baguhin angnapakaraming ¡°SANA¡±. Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng pag-unawa at pag-giiit sa atingmga karapatan upang baguhin ang hindi makataong kagayan. Maaari nating nabago ang mga ¡°SANA¡± sa pamamagitan ng pag-asa natin sa ating sariling lakas at paglaban para sa makamit ang katarungan. Kahalintulad ng ating panawagang katarungan sa mga nasawi at nasugatan at pinagkaitan ng karapatang mabuhay sampu ng iba pang mga manggagawa na pinagdurusa ng patakaran ng gobyerno at ang nililikha nitong takot at lagim.

Kung ganun, maari nating mabago ito sa ating paglahok sa paglaban kasama ang KASAMMAKo at iba pang mga organisasyong tunay na naglilingkod at lumalaban para sa karapatan at kagalingan nating mga migranteng manggagawa na nananawagan laban sa malawakang Crackdown.

Kung ganun, patuloy tayong lalaban hanggang makamit ang atingmga makatarunagn panawagan!

Kung ganun, hindi natin iiwan ang paglaban hanggat nanatili ang pang-aapi at kawalang katarungan.

Justice to the migrants victims of the Yeosu Detention Center Fire and the government be held accountable.

Stop forced deportations! Legalize all undocumented workers!
Oppose the exploitative Employment Permit System. Stop Crackdown!
=================================================================

The Katipunan ng mga Samahan ng Migranteng Manggagawa sa Korea (KASAMMAKO) hit the negligence and condemn in highest terms the Immigration officials and the Korean government for their callous indifference to the suffering migrant workers and calls on to immediately stop crackdown and violent attacks to migrant workers rights and disregard to the rights and welfare of migrants in Korea.

The group representative Mark said, "We deeply laments on the incident that resulted to the death of fellow Chinese and Uzbek migrants and leaving eighteen more in critical conditions at the hospital.
We feel the same way their families and friends felt because we too are affected by such tragedy. We send our sympathies and condolences to the victims."

"We not only deplore the treatment and lack of proper protection and facilities for migrants which is tantamount to human rights abuse. What is even more worthy of severe condemnation and reproach is the continuing crackdown all over the country". Even before this incident, harsh method of arrest is being employed by the immigration We strongly condemn such method much as we condemn the ongoing crackdown", Mark added

Citing cases during arrests," Migrants not only suffer from the atmosphere of fear as many are hospitalized after receiving beatings, broken bones and injuries caused by the arresting immigration officers during crackdown as they tried to elude. If the rights and conditions of the documented and undocumented migrants are not properly addressed, this will also reflect even worst on the detained migrants. They too should be protected under detention.

Let us clarify that this is not only an issue of proper facilities or humanitarian matter, but an issue of how the Korean government aggravates the conditions of migrant workers much worst and deplorable act of violence its anti-migrant policies such as the Employment Permit System (EPS) and the Industrial Technical Trainee (ITT) System. Its is no wonder the how much the government lavishly and glaringly show off these system, more migrants will continue to become undocumented because it served only the interest of the capitalist and neglects the welfare and violates the human rights of the migrant workers.

"As simple as this, If the a Genuine Work permit system or legalization system is provided, then there will be no need for Modern slavery system like the EPS and Trainee system.; If the there will no Trainee and EPS system that treats workers inhumanely and violates their rights, the migrant workers will not be forced to become undocumented. If they are not forced to become undocumented and their rights respected, the crackdown and harsh arrest will come to halt and non-will be detained for merely working finding source of livelihood. If non-of these done and tolerated by the government with indifference, the victims of the fire will still be alive today.

"But No! This is the reality in Korea Society. So many "If's"¡¦ And so many Dream broken, So many Families broken, So many lives lost, so many human rights violated.

"Therefore, we can change this so many "If's" to reality of justice by working and struggling for better working condition, respect of rights and recognition of our contribution to Korean Society. We can transform these "If's" in to reality by relying in our strength and struggling till our demand for justice is met. Much as our demands for the 10 victims who died and injured others as well as all the migrants in Korea who continue to languish in exploitation and feel the atmosphere of fear created by the government itself.

Therefore, we can transform these "If's" in to reality by relying in our strength and struggle along with KASAMMAKo, and the entire migrant workers movement in Korea and join our ranks in calling to Stop Crackdown!

Therefore, we will commit ourselves in the struggle till justice and our just demands are achieved.

Therefore, we will never abandon our fight as long as the condition that breeds exploitation exist!

Justice to the migrants victims of the Yeosu Detention Center Fire and the government be held accountable.

Stop forced deportations! Legalize all undocumented workers!
Oppose the exploitative Employment Permit System. Stop Crackdown!
