The numbers are good for all those who have not the possibility to be now in Greece and try to support, to know that there is much to do , from all over the world. After the EU-Turkey deal Greece is opening 14 Hotspots around the country and tries to "invite" the refugees to stay there. Most people don't believe that this is a solution, they also don't want to believe that the borders are closed , so they prefer to stay in the mud of EIdomeni hoping for the opening of the borders (12.000 people )
The port of Pireus is also a space where people insist to stay , ( 4.770) or even return after having been to the hotspots and realising that the selforganised solidarity structures are better for them than the camps.
In the meanwhile Lesvos and Chios have turned to be detention centers where all new arriving refugees are detained. Most NGOs made official statements and left the detentions. Deportation flights with military planes and police officers from Holland start this days from Mitilini to Izmir.
Greece is changing from the country of solidarity and welcoming the refugees, to a huge camp where refugees don't have any rights anymore. Tourist friends dont give up going to Grecce but involve yourselves and spread the news .
It is the european goverments that planned and realized and send their police to this huge camp in Greece.
If refugees are stolen their rights we are all responsible. Putting them in closed camps doesn't make them unseen . We are with the refugees, stay on their side.
NO ONE IS ILLEGAL!
FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT!
