#Athens: Khora’s Social Centre on Squat Evictions & #Refugeesgr Living There

In the early morning hours Greec police evicted the Villa Zografou and The Hospital squat on Alkiviadou in Athens, Greece. About 200 people were detained. We publish a statement from Khora’s Social Centre about the evictions.

This morning at 5am, 2 squats in Athens, 1 housing refugees, were evicted by the police.
Around 200 people are currently being held in police stations, with no access to a lawyer. One person we are in contact with was told she doesn’t have the right to see a lawyer, telling her she “isn’t being detained, just ‘held back’ before being referred to a camp.”
Those with papers have been separated from those without papers, and we don’t yet know what will happen to them.
A policeman we spoke to outside the police station this morning admitted to following orders that he knows go against the refugees’ rights.

We will update this page as we find out more.

We stand in solidarity with those detained and in opposition to the continued refusal of the state to grant refugees their rights and allow them access to safe living conditions.

Tonight there will be a demo in Athens (6pm): Πορεία σήμερα στις 6μμ. Προσυγκέντρωση στην πλ Γαρδένιας.
