THREAD: 1/5 I met a group of ~10 women from #Somalia, most who travelled to #Greece alone. They’ve been sleeping outside on the ground for up to a week in #Moria camp on #Lesvos island. Single women should be given space in an enclosed section, but they are told it is full. @hrw
2/5 They have been given only thin mats to sleep on, and sleeping bags - single women don’t get tents since they are supposed to be inside the section for women alone. But #Moria is so overcrowded that people needing special protection aren’t getting it. So they sleep on this:
3/5 This woman has a problem with her kidneys and needs to go to the hospital for dialysis 3x a week. She sleeps on the ground between metal bars meant to contain lines of people. “We heard sometimes [an NGO] takes some women & puts them in tents but our turn hasn’t come.”

Vor 1,5 Monaten war ich Teil einer Gruppe, die einen Notfall auf #Lesbos versuchte aufzufangen. Ein kurzer Thread zu dem, mit dem man dort konfrontiert wird.
Schon damals war klar: die Lager sind heillos (!) überfüllt. Deutlich mehr sind noch auf dem Weg aus der Türkei heraus. Wer nicht in die Lager geht, dem wird nicht geholfen.
Die Jahre zuvor hat es immer noch Helfer gegeben, die auch unregistrierten Geflüchteten, außerhalb der Lager, geholfen haben.

Hoy ha surgido una pregunta sobre el nombre del caballo de #Aragorn. Nos ha hecho recordar los #Tolkienfacts que hicimos hace mucho tiempo sobre tan nobles animales en la #TierraMedia, así que queremos revivirlos.
Por cierto, el de Aragorn se llama Roheryn.
"Los caballos que montaban [los montaraces] eran vigorosos y de estampa arrogante, pero hirsutos de crines; y uno de ellos no tenía jinete: el corcel de #Aragorn, que habían traido del Norte, y que respondía al nombre de Roheryn" (LSDLA, libro V) #Tolkienfacts
Obtenemos más información sobre Roheryn, el caballo de #Aragorn, en el apéndice sobre #Quenya y #Sindarin de El #silmarillion, donde se nos indica que significa 'Caballo de la señora', ya que se trata de un regalo de la Dama #Arwen.
Despejadas las dudas vamos con el #Tolkienfacts

1/ A not so merry Christmas from the Greek island of Lesbos.

I'm on Lesbos to report on tough situation of refugees who are stuck here.

Muhamad from Afghanistan tells me: "I don't think we're in Europe. We are in a zoo."

2/ There are thousands of refugees here on Lesbos. Mostly from Afghanistan.

Camp I visited, near village of Moria, is one mess. Small tents, garbage, dirt, hardly any organization.

Inhabitants call it "The Jungle".

Reminds me of camps I saw in Syria. However, Lesbos is in EU.
3/ Moria camp on Lesbos is an official camp.

It has a fence for security. Few thousand refugees live inside. Some stay in containers; others in tents.

Good thing about this camp is that the floor of the tents is concrete, which protects in case of rain.

1/ What I saw in #Lesvos today was truly shocking. As another winter approaches, the situation for thousands of #refugees trapped in a dangerous and desperate limbo on the island is totally unsustainable
2/ Conditions in #Moria camp are appalling - a stain on the conscience of Europe. Almost 7,500 people are jammed into a camp with an official capacity of 3,100. There is a lack of sanitation, insufficient clean drinking water, streams of raw sewage and infestations of mice & rats
3/ Fatime, a woman who fled Afghanistan, told me that she does not feel safe in #Moria camp. “We spend twelve hours queuing for food. We came here to find protection and send our children to school. We didn’t come here to live in a jungle,” she said
