1/9 There is something off about the #KurdishBetrayal narrative being used to describe US actions in Syria. My feed is full of hashtags denouncing the fact that #TrumpBetrayedKurds by withdrawing US troops based in #NorthEasternSyria
2/9 To be betrayed implies that there were grounds for trust to begin with.
Yes, Kurdish and US forces were briefly allied against the common enemy of the #IslamicState. But that was an enemy in part created by a catastrophic US foreign policy in the Middle East
3/9 The US are now doing what they have always done - including when they implemented policies that gave rise to IS - acting in their own self interest, without any foresight beyond election cycles, & without concern for the implications for people fleeing their burning homes

Moria is not a place for people. It is overcrowded and doesn't have proper infrastructure. How many children will have to die for #Greece and the #EU to realise that neither the #EUTurkeyDeal works nor the hotspot approach?
I've been reporting on #refugeesGR since Jan 2015 - a little less than 5 years and we've reached to a point, 5 years later that we're still talking about the same things. The conditions in Moria, the winterisation of the camps in the mainland. The lack of capacity in the country.
