Homosexual Refugees Live in Life-Threatening Conditions in Asylum Centers

Janneke van Maanen is the interim chairperson of the LGBT advocacy organization (COC) in the Dutch province of Gelderland.  She says that homosexuals and transgenders live under life-threatening conditions in asylum centers.  Safe houses are urgently needed.  She reported that barbarian attacks occur in these centers of a kind previously unheard of in the Netherlands.  Excrement is put in people’s beds, clothes are burnt, people are beaten up and razor blades are used to cut others.  The COC report twenty complaints of harassment and threats nationwide.
