Re: Feb. 28th vote on enforced implementation of the deportation initiative

Switzerland does not need this kind of social divide. It doesn't need anymore "us and them" than there already is. There is a right wing element that brazenly walked in through the front door riding on a campaign of fear and giving people a bizarre idea that a strong SVP would give us a safer country to live in. It has given us a more paranoid country for sure but we are not any less safe than we were before. Only the SVP would like us the think "they - mean, nasty, criminal foreigners" are out to collectively get us. But it's okay to openly lie and create fear, that's just politics.

"Die Kantonsregierungen, die Direktorenkonferenzen und sogar die Staatsschreiber rufen dazu auf, die Durchsetzungsinitiative abzulehnen. Ein ausserordentliches Vorgehen bei einer eidgenössischen Volksinitiative. "

and if anyone else needs to be convinced, the attached article might do it.
A valuable but incomplete strand of thought...
