“A massive attack on the property rights”

  • In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center.

  • David Cameron said this week that Europe must said [sic] failed asylum claimants back to their countries
  • Demands for Germany’s ‘open doors and windows’ policy to be scrapped
  • Women said rape and child abuse were rife in Giessen’s refugee camp

On the busy shopping street in Giessen, a German university town twinned with Winchester, migrant Atif Zahoor tucks into a chicken dish with his brother and cousin at the curry restaurant Chillie To Go.

In late July the three slipped into Germany with their wives and children, using illegal documents.

  • “For us today, what is at stake is Europe, the lifestyle of European citizens, European values, the survival or disappearance of European nations, and more precisely formulated, their transformation beyond recognition. Today, the question is not merely in what kind of a Europe we would like to live, but whether everything we understand as Europe will exist at all.” — Viktor Orbán, President of Hungary.
