Switzerland Copies Denmark - Refugees Pay 10% Tax

Switzerland is in the news in the Daily Mail, not a main headline..

Switzerland copies Denmark and forces migrants to hand over possessions to help pay for their upkeep - but also claims 10% of any wages they earn for up to ten years

  • Migrants arriving in Switzerland are facing tough new integration measures
  • They must hand over possessions and are taxed 10% of future earnings
  • It follows an example set by Denmark which caused international outrage
  • The countries claim the measures are needed to pay for refugees' upkeep

The article writes more in the opening lines...

'Refugees arriving in Switzerland are facing harsh new integration laws with authorities confiscating valuable possessions and taxing 10 per cent of the migrants' future earnings.

Following the example set by Denmark, in which possessions worth more than 1,000 Swiss francs are taken, the country claims the measures are necessary to pay for the migrants' upkeep.

The harsh rules come as Denmark backtracks on similar measures after being rebuked by the UN refugee agency and drawing comparisons to Nazi Germany.'

It is interesting that Denmark is named in Western Australia too.

Is 10% tax better than paying 27% - to 60% or more?

Some of these reports are with mixed messages...

The people handing over their possessions - how much did they actually bring with them? 

The people fleeing lands en-mass, is this because of take over of lands and so the people are removed from their homes and march somewhere else in a grand exodus?

Other images have shown in articles recently published piles of lifesaving jackets piled high on a hill - and other photographs of people handing over passports to the authorities as is usual practice in some lands, to present yourself ...but how did all this start?

There are people who would be happy to pay 10% taxes....or as it was in times gone by 10% tithes - in Switzerland there is still a requirement to pay an amount to the church. 

What is really happening in our world? 

We know the godless are fighting the godless.

Not all is clear with what is really going on...never is.

We can only have compassion and pray that humanity is realising a higher consciousness, for our global healing need and for global peace in our world. This is necessary now.

Peace be with you
