On August 13th 2022 the HUMAN RIGHTS LEGAL PROJECT are celebrating one year after our first successful intervention to stop #Pushbacks in #Samos.
This is a small thread of how a small number of people can stop the illegalities of the government:
In April 2020 the Greek Government began its systematic and brutal pushbacks against refugees.
For a year, due to the pandemic restrictions, their actions went almost unnoticed.
@ABoatReport was trying to reveal what was happening but no one on the ground could do anything.
We were witnessing his posts feeling incapable of intervening: to protect both #AsylumSeekers and the #RuleOfLaw and #HumanRights.
On the 21st April 2021 another pushback took place in Marathokampos, Sámos. 4 days later one Palestinian woman with her three kids came to our

Il n’y a plus d’eau courante depuis 15 jours dans le camp de réfugiés de #Samos en #Grèce, alertent les ong. Le camp avait été vanté comme un modèle par @GDarmanin ou @vpecresse tout comme d’autres dirigeants qui s’y étaient promenés en 2021 ou 2022…
Mais l’argent de l’UE (276M euros en partie issu d’un fond de relance post Covid) a largement été investi dans la surveillance : caméras, portiques dans ce camp de #Samos aux airs de prison. Nous le soulignions dans @Mediapart…
La pompe est en panne, la pièce défectueuse serait «difficilement remplaçable» avec la pénurie mondiale, justifient les autorités. Les 400 réfugiés de #Samos ont 3 bouteilles d’eau par jour pour couvrir leurs besoins. Ce camp est le «projet pilote» de l’UE…

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, (...) 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.

Follow-Up regarding the potential case of a #pushback of part of a group that arrived on the island of #Samos during the night of November 2 to 3.
A long thread 🧵👇
This week I was part of a European Parliament delegation of the LIBE Committee to #Greece that aimed at assessing the situation of #migrants and #refugees in Greece. As part of this visit, we arrived in Samos the morning of the 3rd November.
At a meeting with NGOs upon our arrival, MSF informed the Members that there was at this very moment on the island a group of people being scared to be pushed back and who had called a hotline for help. They invited members to come with them to see by themselves.

🔴Mañana, la #UE y #Grecia inauguran en la isla de #Samos el nuevo Centro Polivalente de Acogida e Identificación (MPRIC).

Refugiados y solicitantes de asilo serán retenidos en contenedores de transporte rodeados de vallas de alambre de espino, con entradas y salidas controladas
A partir del 20 de septiembre, unas 500 personas que permanecen en el campamento de Vathy serán trasladadas al nuevo centro, más restrictivo, situado en una zona completamente remota y aislada llamada Zervou
El nuevo centro de #Samos supone una escalada de las políticas migratorias europeas destinadas a disuadir a la gente de venir y a castigar a quienes consiguen llegar.

No solo es peligroso, sino que también es dañino para el bienestar físico y mental de las personas.

‘The exclusion of refugee children from the Greek education system reached record levels during the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting reactions from across the education sector, MPs and civil society’

A research report by ⁦@rspaegean

#SamosSunday 1/3…
Educational integration is one of the key aspects of international protection standards.

And one of the main concerns as regards #RefugeesGr reception conditions — who are currently facing two options: de-schooling or ‘segregated education system’

#SamosSunday 2/3
On #Samos, few children enrolled in public schools but still face inherent challenges:

‘In the morning I have to walk to the camp and get water from there. [...] When it is dark, I try to read in the tent. Some organisations gave us lamps, because we don’t have electricity’

#Thread: Ms H.A., a #refugeesGR from Ethiopia, was 6 months pregnant when she arrived on the island of #Samos, #Greece in 2019. Despite her pregnancy Ms H.A. was ignored by the Greek authorities and was forced to live in precarious conditions in a tent for nearly 3 months.
Ms H.A. took the case to the European Court for Human Rights with the help of @rlc_berlin and the Greek Government agreed to compensate Ms H.A.…
Despite that decision, the living conditions for #refugeesGR in #Samos remain precarious. At the same time Greek media completely ignore any coverage of #refugeesGR related issues, apart from coverage that criminalizes them creating negative attitudes.

Ich finde es ja gut, dass sich viele Menschen auch Gedanken über die Flüchtlinge auf Lesbos machen. Zur Zeit drehen sich die meisten deutschen Tweets zum #Erdbeben um #Moria. Einerseits gut, andererseits auch völlig daneben...

#Greece #Samos #RefugeeCamp #Refugees #Fire

A week after the Moria fire on Lesbos, a fire has broken out on the next Greek island near a refugee camp. "There is a fire on the edge of the registration center," said the mayor of Vathy on the island of Samos, Giorgos Stantzos.
"No tents are burning yet, but I'm concerned." Corresponding pictures and videos of a large source of fire were published on social media. According to Greek media, the fire broke out 200 to 300 meters above the refugee camp.
According to the Greek Ministry of Migration, around 4,600 migrants live in the Vathy refugee camp near the town of the same name, but the camp only has a capacity of around 650 places.

Erdogan hat die Grenzen für Flüchtlinge geöffnet. Was passiert in der Türkei und and den Grenzen zu Griechenland? 👇THREAD zu unserer Reportage @derspiegel…
In Istanbul drängelten sich gestern vor allem Syrer und Afghanen in Busse, die Hunderte Menschen an die Grenze brachten. Einer von ihnen war Abdullah Ruhabi, aus Aleppo, sein Ticket war gratis: Sein Ziel: Deutschland.
Die Nachricht von der Grenzöffnung verbreitete sich wie ein Lauffeuer. Das ist eine orchestrierte Medienkampagne. Erst wurde die News lanciert. Dann sendeten türkische TV-Sender live Bilder von Menschen, die auf ein Boot stiegen oder an die Grenze marschierten.

Thread 1.| Protests and strikes today in #Lesvos, #Chios, #Samos, #Leros, #Kos against the presence of #hotspots and the plans for new closed reception and detention centers. All the trade associations and local authorities call for the protest. #OpentTheIslands #Refugeesgr
2. The main tone is that the local population is angry with the situation and the negligence of the government. In ##Chios & in Lesvos a lot of people participated in the protests. The officials' speeches were pointing the need to stop the new centers and this inhuman situation
3. The general atmosphere from the published texts seems to be mainly against #refugees, strengthening #racism and #xenophobia, although there are also voices with a #humanitarian approach like the union of Chios Psychiatrists…
