And the chase is hotly followed

for her right. She is under age and fled from - the Austrian governmental minister Platter. She sent a video, which was broadcasted in the ORF. Well, in the sense of Genf contracts, she might not be a "refugee", for whatever reason. To me this is not the crux of matter: The matter is, that the familiy lived and worked in Austria for five years approximately and this fact alone would make them eligible for citizenship - in other countries. Arigona is a young woman in adolescence, she feels desperate. She said so. She uttered, she would commit suicide and she felt forlorn in a hopeless situation. I can understand her and I know, that she is only 15 years old and left outside alone.

This is not extortion, as many think. This is a case to show lenience, brotherhood and sisterhood, and humanity towards Arigona and her family. Additionally, I would consider the Human Rights Declaration in these respects,

Article 10.

    Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.

Article 12.

    No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.

Article 16.

    (3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.

I am not familiar with the processes, that led to the order for uniformed officers to deport this family in the middle of the night after the family has lived and worked in Austria for some years, already. Which kind of persecution did they suffer from? Did they want to change their nationality?

Questions over questions and the right to choose residence is not even touched, yet ... oh yeah, and the brotherhood and sisterhood of men ... imagine ...all the people living life in peace ...
