Frankfurt's station district: At the border for failing to give assistance

dear Mr. Majer, I am writing to you in reference to an article in the F. A. Z. from 5. July, in which you quoted with the statement that drug addicts are not ",are to be from the eye from the sense' in backyards" deported, as well as that it must be, that are in the city of Frankfurt people homeless and drug-dependent, and some accept offers of help.

I agree with this statement in principle, do not think, however, that in the current Situation is sufficient. My points of criticism I would like to discuss with you.

I live for the past nine years, in the railway station district. This usually happy with the specific features of this district with themselves. I'm an internist and infectious disease login, I worked as a student in the consumer space, Elbe road, and am familiar with the history of the Frankfurt path. It is fully aware that drug use and homelessness can not be with a police presence, food bags and insightful discussions with Concerned solved. Nevertheless, the current situation moves me and brings me to the brink of despair. I wonder how States like the front of our house can be accepted. The current Situation is exacerbated by the Corona-pandemic extreme. It is, in my view, intolerable, and in consequence inhuman. An inhuman policy must not be part of the Frankfurt road.

No Chance, distance, or hygiene rules to comply

It is one thing about pollution, open syringes, and in the house entrance-Stock to complain and to demand that "something happens" – however, it is another thing to say, and to see that obviously help the needy people on the street vegetate and the road to the open wounds and feces smells. In particular, in the pandemic situation, it is a disaster that people store on each other crammed and there's no Chance a distance or hygiene rules.

Covid-19 can result in serious over the course of a rapid oxygen supply, which is not noticed by the Infected often. This is a potentially life-threatening. That there have been no outbreak (and consecutive to death cases) in the Frankfurt drug scene, is absolute happiness, and certainly not the more stringent preventive measures to it.

From may instead of found action test, at least we can notice, as a resident here, nothing. Quite to the contrary. The only instances that show up here are the police (bullhorn announcement: "Please keep distance" – without consequence), FES (the Lying on the ground around it is cleaned) and private food distribution.

"Cynical slogans of"

The food distribution is under hygiene aspects critical. It garbage collects, cockroaches and mice are attracted and spacing rules can not be adhered to. Also, I see that it is critical that the food distribution might be the last remaining, even the Drug addicts care is prevented.

street worker, Frankfurt's politicians, or passers-by can be my perception since months here. Slogans such as "we must endure", seem to be rather cynical.
