Lesvos, Greece: Many Arrests At Squats Yesterday

Police came early yesterday morning to the squats. They came to the different squats one after the other with 3 cars and two arrest vans. In total 17 people were arrested, sixteen refugees and one person with European passport.

In the squat where they went first two people were arrested. After they went to the other squat. There they arrested one European person and also kicked her during the arrest. Then they went through one of the building taking all the people from their rooms. All papers were checked and then the police took pictures of each person.

At the same time other cops started to go to another building and to the beach were some people were sleeping. When one person tried to run he was severely beaten. He had to be transferred to the hospital for treatment.

In the other buildings also people were arrested.

All people were taken to Moria. 11 of them are still in the prison inside Moria. 5 people were released again yesterday, 4 of the arrested refugees and the person with European passport. 

Some of the people that are now in Moria prison will be deported.

We are incredibly sad and angry. Once again today our friends and comrades were imprisoned and beaten for no other reason than being in Europe without having the “right” passport. Now many face weeks or month in prison and after that deportation…for nothing. Only for looking for a safe place to live.
