Ακολουθεί θρεντ περι "νομιμότητας" κατα παραγγελία και περι διαπλοκής αυτοδιοικητικών που παρακάμπτουν τις τοπικές κοινότητες.
Το 2012, ιδιοκτήτρια οικοπέδου (δικηγόρος με πολιτικές άκρες) αποσπά απόφαση επαναχάραξης αιγιαλού που παραβαίνει κάθε έννοια λογικής, φτανοντας την ιδιοκτησία της εκεί που σκάει το καλοκαίρινό κύμα.

Am 27.11. eröffnen 2 weitere Hochsicherheitslager auf den Inseln #Leros und #Kos, 100% von der #EU-Kommission finanziert & vom griechischen Migrationsministerium umgesetzt. Am Montag kündigte Generalsekretär für Einwanderungspolitik, Patroklos Georgiadis, in Rundschreiben an...
...dass alle Geflüchteten, die von nun an über den Landweg nach #Griechenland einreisen (63% im letzten Jahr), nicht mehr in Athen oder Thessaloniki einen Asylantrag stellen können, sondern auf die Ägäischen Inseln übersetzt werden sollen, in eines der Hochsicherheitslager, (...)
...um dort einen Asylantrag stellen zu können. Wird dies umgesetzt, bedeutet das, dass die Ägäischen Inseln nun auch für Menschen, die zuvor auf dem Festland waren, zu isolierten Pufferzonen vor dem Europäischen Festland werden, in denen sie auf unbestimmte Zeit festsitzen.

Es ist unglaublich wie sehr sich die Situation verschlechtert hat, für people on the move, Einwohnenden und Volunteers. Ein Bericht von Bewohner:innen #Lesvos über die Terrorherrschaft der Regierung #Mitsotakis ⬇️
Eine quick & dirty Übersetzung. Original: lesvosnews.net/articles/news-…
1 Bewohner von Mytilini: "Die Rückführung wurde von Sicherheitskräften vorgenommen - Wir haben Angst, den Flüchtlingen Decken zu geben"
2 Wir haben viele Flüchtlinge gerettet.
Heute trauen wir uns nicht einmal, eine Decke zu geben, sie werden uns für Menschenhändler und Spione halten.

While the rest of the island population is closing their shutters during the strong summer heat, tourists arrive on the island and the beaches become more crowded, the ~ 5.000 camp residents of #Moria2 are not allowed to walk outside the camp this Sunday. /1
While many have left the premises to the mainland over the last weeks, the asylum seekers from e.g. #Syria, #Afghanistan & #Somalia in camp there is a strong insecurity of what will happen next, as many face new asylum interviews solely asking about the conditions in #Turkey. /2
Background: On the 7 June, the Greek State designated #Turkey as a “safe 3rd country” for women, man & children of 5 nationalities seeking international protection in #Greece. This decision reinforces the how #EU shift responsibility to protect #refugees to third countries. /3

“People are in a state of survival inside #Moria2,” says doctor* on #Lesvos, “once they are actually arriving in a safe space, we see them collapse. This on-going humiliation in semi-closed, overheated, undignified living spaces with no escape are breaking people’s mind.” /1
“Some might thing, once with a positive asylum decision, camp residents just want to leave #Moria2 to find a future, a better job or place, but the truth is, that most just want to run away and leave this black hole behind. Run from the experience of being a #refugee.” /2
“We have to facilitate people to flourish. To use their potential. But instead we create prison-like structures, with no trees, no shade, no schools, no carpets or movie nights, nothing individual should remain, no traces should be left. The unspoken aim: Vanish.” /3

🔴We are not satisfied by what we heard here today. The numbers mentioned are a bit off: We heard that there are 15.000 people in #Lesvos, while the Greek government speaks of 7.500. What is going on here, exactly?>>>⬇

@SyrizaI @Left_EU
Mr. Meimarakis, representing the @EPPGroup, said he is satisfied with the closed centers we are paying for. Mrs. @YlvaJohansson, are we building closed centers after all? These are essentially concentration camps.>>>⬇

@SyrizaI @Left_EU
The European way of Life of Mr @MargSchinas & the new Migration Pact consists of inhuman detention conditions, of zero sanitary conditions & of small portions of low-quality but exceedingly expensive food.>>>⬇

Οι φασίστες στη Λέσβο "φωνάζουν" σε όλους τους τόνους τι είδος αστυνομικό διευθυντή θα ήθελαν.
Ο τωρινός, που προσπαθεί να κρατήσει προσχήματα δεν τους "κάνει".

Χαρακτηριστική ανάρτηση γνωστού χρυσαυγιτη.
Επαναλαμβάνω εδώ πως δικογραφίες μεν έχουν σχηματιστεί πάμπολλες, προθυμία δε απο τις δικαστικές αρχές, γιοκ.

Στελέχη της αστυνομίας, αυτοδιοικητικοί, απόστρατοι (παρα)θεσμικοί που είναι σε συνεργασία με τους φασίστες έχουν στραφεί κατα του αστυνομικού διευθυντή και χαλάνε κόσμο για να μήν παραμείνει στη θέση του στις επερχόμενες κρίσεις αξιωματικών της ΕΛ.ΑΣ.

[1] Αντιφασιστική Πρωτοβουλία Λέσβου:
Η ατιμωρησία γεννά νέα εγκλήματα. Στη Λέσβο θα αποδοθεί η δικαιοσύνη;
[2] Η καταδικαστική απόφαση και η φυλάκιση των στελεχών της Χρυσής Αυγής γι’ αυτό που πραγματικά υπήρξε αυτό το πολιτικό κόμμα, δηλαδή μία εγκληματική οργάνωση, φαίνεται να δυσκόλεψε πολλούς ομοϊδεάτες της στη Λέσβο, όπου ένας ένας άρχισαν να αρνούνται ότι κάποτε την στήριξαν.

Την 22η Απριλίου του 2018, "κάτοικοι" του νησιού μαζεύονται στην πλατεία Σαπφούς για την καθιερωμένη κυριακάτικη υποστολή σημαίας μετα απο οργανωμένο κάλεσμα
Τα γνωστά ακροδεξιά στοιχειά του νησιού συσπειρώνοντας και τον κόσμο της δεξιάς, όπως και οπαδικους συλλογους προχωρούν σε οργανωμένο πογκρόμ ενάντια σε μετανάστ(ρι)ες.
Η ακραία αυτή επίθεση υποκινήθηκε, υποστηρίχτηκε αλλά και καλύφθηκε από στελέχη της τοπικής αυτοδιοίκησης, τοπικα μμε (archive.is/nMID4) , καθώς και από την ΝΔ.

Roads to the new camp in #Lesvos are blocked. People are still allowed in & out of the camp. Another transfer of around 600 recognized #refugeesgr from the island to the mainland is planned today. #Moria
People are being transferred into busses in the side entrance of the new camp. A military truck is taking some of their belongings. Many people have dressed in their best clothes. Children excited to leave. “Where are we going” one woman asks policeman, “Ella!” he replies. /2
“They scream at the people inside quarantine camp, stay away, like animals. All of us animals. It’s enough. We only have us left.”

Inside the camp people remain without water, the promised WiFi or electricity. People with disabilities are not given precedence in food line. /3

Speaking on #SocDems motion to #EndChildPoverty, @OCallaghanCian says Govt can do much better than take in four refugee children from #Lesvos Image
The Housing First model works - but it's a political choice. We have to decide what type of country we want. Govt needs to take a leadership role to #EndChildPoverty @OCallaghanCian
We currently have 2,620 children living in emergency or temporary accommodation. In 1990, there were five families in Dublin put into emergency accommodation for the entire year - by mid-2019, we were looking at four families a day in the region. @OCallaghanCian #EndChildPoverty

!Share! The new Camp on #Lesvos looks like a #Moria2. #Refugeesgr from inside sent us photos/videos. This thread will present the footage in order to give a voice to the refugees silenced again. No one wants to be in this camp. 1/9

SHELTER I

The tents at #Moria2 where set up quickly. They have no floor. What's if it rains? They are not winter-proof. The camp is exposed to the north. In autumn & winter the wind is heavy & cold. How to heat these tents? There is no electricity. Almost no light at night 2/9
SHELTER II

The Camp is build on an old military shooting range. How save could an old shooting range be? Save enough to put thousands of #refugeesgr on it? No one knows what's in the ground. It's for sure chemically contaminated. A lot of children gonna play there. 3/9 ImageImageImage

Tensions are running high on #Lesvos.

These vulnerable men, women & children are being told they must move into a new camp on the island - or their asylum applications will be affected.

We have mobile medical units stationed at the entrance of the new camp & inside. 2/3 Image
They will provide a wide range of services, incl. primary healthcare & psychological first aid.

We're also distributing essentials like soap & toilet paper.

Last night, fire ripped through #Moria refugee camp on Lesvos

The camp was home to more than 12,000 people including 4,000+ children

No casualties so far reported

This is not the first such fire👇but it’s by far the biggest⁣⁣
⁣⁣(Video @f_grillmeier)
One thing that struck me about #Moria when I was last there, was the hope amid the squalor, the flowerbeds beside the razor-wire fencing

People there faced a crisis from every angle: medical, humanitarian & human rights.

But I also witnessed a huge amount of compassion & hope. ImageImageImageImage
A week after fire in #Moria, thousands are still on the street

A decade since the start of the Syria crisis, Western politicians still cling to the belief any humanity will be a “pull factor” & try to make lives of asylum seekers as miserable as possible.

Strong indications that the #Moria refugee camp fire is an act of asymmetric warfare on #Greece:

▫️fires started simultaneously at different spots
▫️majority of refugees were packed & ready
▫️videos of them chanting “burn Moria burn”
▫️#Turkey’s state media already in the game
One of the videos. Listen at 01:10 singing “burn Moria burn, bye bye”. A second before that, one of them says “memnun memnun” which means grateful in Arabic & pleased in Turkish.

Here’s another video with refugees fleeing #Moria fire scene calmly & already prepared with their bags & luggage’s.

The Alarm Phone got alerted to 2 boats in distress in Greek waters near Lesvos. There are approx. 40 people per boat incl. women and children from Congo. They are drifting without any possibility to move. They urgently ask for rescue & the right to apply for asylum in Greece. Image
The Hellenic CG informed us at 12:42 CEST that a rescue operation is under way by the Turkish CG. We are very concerned as the last GPS-location we received by the ppl in distress, which we passed on to the HCG clearly showed them in Greek waters.

#LeaveNoOneBehind

@Refugees
We called the Turkish CG at 14:33 CEST & they told us that they had rescued a total of 85 #migrants from 2 boats North of #Lesvos. Everyone is safe, no injuries. According to the TCG, the Hellenic CG had pushed the boats back into Turkish waters.
