This is absurd and tragic, in a country where around 230000 houses lay empty people are being moved around like cattle. Asylumseekers have already gone through forced evictions from their home countries due to no fault of their own. They are among the ones who need proper housing a.s.a.p.Instead they are being kept in centres for years while waiting for their applications to go through. Despite all of that stress, the residents show amasing rescilience, engaging with the wider community, reaching out.
