On the relationship of the migration of peoples, democratic right of asylum and proletarian internationalism

On the relationship of the migration of peoples, democratic right of asylum and proletarian internationalism
The imperialist world system is the cause of the “modern migration of peoples” German reality: deportation of politically persecuted refugees at the borders, refugees being crowded in camps, arson attacks on asylum seekers’ housing facilities, exploitation and enslavement of workers from other countries, “citizens’ action groups” and “citizens’ forces” against so-called “foreign infiltration” pogromlike assaults on asylum seekers, on colleagues from other countries. German chauvinism and racism, the unbroken tradition of nazi-fascism bear their poisonous fruit!
There can be no doubt that the West/German imperialists have succeeded in insulting the poison of German chauvinism, racism and arrogance into the minds of broad parts of the working population, of workers in West Germany. This poison serves them to disguise the system of rule and to divertfrom those, who are really guilty for economic crises, unemployment, housingshortage, pauperisation, hunger, misery and wars.
In this way they want to present a “scapegoat”. It is West/German imperialism itself who is mainly responsible for the fact that so many people are forced to leave their home countries, to look for shelter because of political persecution or to offer for sale the only “property” they have – labour power – in order to save themselves and their families from starvation!
Indeed, in view of the increasing unemployment in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, but in other European countries, too, a migration of peoples comprising hundreds of thousands of people who are looking for work has begun. A mass migration of people who, according to capitalist laws of “market economy”, that is to say following the laws of profit, of offer and demand, must leave their homes and -sometimes even not equipped with basic th in gs-setout with their whole families to look for a job here in West Germany.
The reasons for this process of migration on a new level are certainly not only the dramatical sharpening of the situation in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. They are not alone the break down of those regimes which pretended to be “socialist”, but,formanydecades, in reality have practised a policy against their own peoples, against the working class under the cover of “socialism”. This policy was used to secure the domination of a “new bourgeoisie”. However, the reasons lie deeper, they are based in the imperialist system itself.
Capitalism is international. The workers must sell their labour power asacommodity.theymust offer themselves on the “labour market” as a commodity. They look for a job in those areas where they allegedly or really get the best pay.
Hunger and extremely miserableiivingconditions are the essential reasons for them to offer and sell their only property, their labour power, outside the home country on the markets of other countries.
In theepoch of imperialism, the highest stage of capitalism, where a few big imperialist powers have divided the world among them, such miserable living conditions are typical in countries which are exploited and oppressed by those powers. This is the inevitable consequence of imperialist plundering of the colonies and dependent countries, of squeezing out huge extra-profits out of the working population of these countries by the imperialists.
Whereas İn the 60s and 70s labour was “recruited” by West German capitalists mainly from Southern Europe, South-Eastem Europe andTurkcy.now therecanbenoticed an increasing immigration from Eastern Europe as well as from Asia and Africa.
