Mainstream media isn't covering it but the #MigrationCrisis has started in #Greece again.

Yesterday, 13 boats with 600 migrants arrived in a span of just 30 minutes to the Greek island #Lesvos from #Turkey

They are almost all from Afghanistan

Turkish coastguard let's them pass
Yesterday's mass landing is the largest since the Migration Crisis of 2015

And it isn't just a case of yesterday & Lesvos.

The number of new arrivals at the five largest Greek islands has skyrocket in July & August.

Migrants camps are overcrowded & the government is paralyzed
It isn't all.

Yesterday, another 122 migrants arrived by boat in 2 other locations too

The islands of #Lesvos, #Chios, #Samos, #leros & #Kos host 24,000 migrants.

The government will hold a crisis meeting today.

The EU will try quota system again...

The rhetoric of big numbers ('there are 200 milion migrants we need a global response') is producing unplanned side effects. Rightwing parties are using it to mobilize voters against the 'invasion' by foreigners

There is huge confusion on what the #GlobalCompactForMigration is for and what it can do. It is NOT about the 220 million migrants in the world. This figure includes everyone who has left their country of origin for more than 12 months, is also someone who left Italy 18 years ago
What the #GlobalCompactMigration is really about is an infinitesimally smaller number of people who are moving now and what countries could do (it is not binding) to manage this mobility better.
