Das EU-Jahr: Das wär´s gewesen!

Unsere monatliche Kolumne zum „Europäischen Jahr zur Bekämpfung von Armut und sozialer Ausgrenzung“ in der Sbg. Straßenzeitung Apropos

Der letzte Teil der Kolumne ist zweigeteilt: Einmal eine Rückschau, wie wir es tatsächlich erlebt haben („Das war´s“), und einmal, wie es  hätte sein können („Das wär´s gewesen!“):

Ein Ja(hr) zur Armutsbekämpfung?
Teil 12/1: Das war´s!

„Mich hat der König gegrüßt!“ ruft ein Teilnehmer stolz und erzählt vom Europäischen Treffen von Menschen mit Armutserfahrung in Belgien, welches sich über royalen Besuch freuen durfte. „Wir werden nie wieder im Regen stehen gelassen“, meinte ein anderer, und spannte demonstrativ den schönen Werbe-Regenschirm des Ministeriums auf. „Und mir hat der Minister die Hand gegeben“, berichtete ein Dritter stolz.

Alles tatsächlich geschehen und gesagt, nämlich bei einem Forum Theater im Rahmen der offiziellen Abschlusskonferenz des EU-Jahres in Wien. Gesagt von Menschen, die von Armut betroffen sind, von Menschen, die ihre persönlichen Eindrücke und Ergebnisse dieses Schwerpunktjahres nochmals „spielerisch“ zusammengefasst und präsentiert haben. Und bewiesen haben, dass ein Theater wieder einmal näher an der Realität sein kann als allgemein angenommen. Sehr nahe nämlich.

Doch, es ist etwas passiert in diesem Jahr. Es gab Veranstaltungen, Studien, Aktionen. Es gab Bekenntnisse, Absichtserklärungen, die Thematisierung von Armut. Es gab sogar armutspolitische Maßnahmen. Aber ein „Schwerpunkt“-Jahr? Nein, das war es eindeutig nicht.

Auch und schon gar nicht in Salzburg. Eine einzige Veranstaltung zum Thema Kinderarmut wurde realisiert, initiiert von Soziallandesrätin Erika Scharer. Und sonst? Die SPÖ hat im Herbst Verteilungsfragen verstärkt thematisiert, die Grünen haben die eine oder andere Aktion zum Thema Armut durchgeführt. Die ÖVP? Sie hat zu diesem Schwerpunktjahr eigentlich nichts beigetragen. Keine Sensibilisierungsmaßnahmen, keine Kampagnen, keine Veranstaltungen. Ebenso wenig die FPÖ. Einzelne NGO´s haben da wohl mehr gemacht.

Eine gewisse Sensibilisierung von Teilen der Bevölkerung dürfte trotzdem gelungen sein. Auf die Sozial- und Armutspolitik hat dieses EU-Jahr allerdings keinen Einfluss ausgeübt und hätte wohl, wäre es das Jahr der Schildkröten gewesen, gleich ausgesehen. Eher hat wohl das Sparbudget auf Bundesebene zu einer breiten Protestwelle geführt, das wohl einzig positive, das man dem abgewinnen kann.

Da hilft es auch nichts, wenn das EU-Jahr zu einzelnen Glücksmomenten geführt hat, wie für eine Teilnehmerin am Forum Theater, der der Minister nicht nur die Hand gegeben, „sondern gleich umarmt hat“. Leider war er nicht mehr anwesend, um das Freude strahlende Gesicht zu sehen!

Teil 12/2: Das wär´s gewesen!

Bereits am 7. Jänner geben LH Gabi Burgstaller und ihr Stellvertreter Wilfried Haslauer in einer Pressekonferenz im Beisein von Grünen und FPÖ bekannt, dass sie das EU-Jahr zur Armutsbekämpfung intensiv nutzen und die Armutspolitik im Bundesland Salzburg endlich umfassend angehen wollen! Die LHF kündigt an, einen breiten partizipativen Prozess zu starten, um einen umfassenden Regionalen Aktionsplan gegen Armut zu erstellen. Einbezogen sind alle Ressorts, die Bezirke und Gemeinden, NGO´s und ExpertInnen und – ganz wichtig – Armutsbetroffene!

Der LHStv. nickt zustimmend. Er kündigt dann seinerseits an, dass er die Wirtschaftspolitik und die Wirtschaftsförderung auf neue Beine stellen und soziale Fragen dabei eine wesentliche Rolle spielen werden. Die Wirtschaftsförderung wird an das Kriterium Existenz sichernder Löhne gebunden, working poor sollen nicht, so Hauslauer, öffentlich gefördert werden. Darüber hinaus wird er sich dafür einsetzen, solange auf Mietwohnungsbau zu setzen, bis die Wohnungsnot wieder halbwegs überwunden ist.

Die LHF nickt zustimmend. Sie kündigt an, mit dem Koalitionspartner über die Finanzierung notwendiger sozialer Investitionen zu reden. Der LHStv. sagt, das sei für ihn selbstverständlich.

Die Salzburger Stadtpolitik ist empört, dass sie bei der Pressekonferenz nicht dabei war und präsentiert eine Woche darauf selbst ein umfassendes Konzept zur Armutsbekämpfung. Die Wohnungslosigkeit soll innerhalb von fünf Jahren beseitigt, Stadtteilarbeit massiv ausgeweitet und Kinderbetreuung noch mehr ausgebaut werden. Außerdem wird schon frühzeitig mehr Personal am Sozialamt angestellt, um die Mindestsicherung auch adäquat vollziehen zu können.

Städte- und Gemeindeverband fordern, dass die Mindestsicherung 14mal ausbezahlt wird. Gemeindeverbandspräsident Mödlhammer will, dass die Gemeinden verstärkt in soziale Dienstleistungen investieren und fordert für die Finanzierung derselben eine umfassende Vermögensbesteuerung. Er sieht ein, dass die Gemeinden davon nur profitieren können.

Im November drohen LH Burgstaller, LHStv. Haslauer und Bgm. Schaden, aus ihren Parteien aus- und von ihren Funktionen zurückzutreten, wenn das Sparbudget auf Bundesebene wie geplant beschlossen wird, weil es die Ungleichheit und die Armut verstärkt.

Und die Erde ist eine Scheibe. Und jeder Traum einmal vorbei!
