#RefugeesGR: Spontaneous protests after refugee almost died in Moria
Lesvos, Greece: Refugees spontaneously marched from the Moria refugee camp to Sappho square in Mytlini today, after a refugee almost died in the Moria refugee camp. His condition remains llife-threatening.
Yesterday people looked for a doctor in the Moria camp but couldn’t find one. Than they asked for an ambulance, but the ambulance didn’t came. Now the man is finally taken to hospital and in a coma. He is being artificially preserved with several machines that keep his heart beating. Initially we were being told that the man died, activists of the Cars of Hope collective who are on Lesvos right now were given the same information.
Later refugees clarified that information and said the man isn’t dead but that he is being artificially preserved and that doctors told them that the man won’t wake up again. “His heart is only beating because of the machines”, one of the doctors said. His condition remains llife-threatening.
In the morning hours a group of about 150 refugees spontaneously marched to Mytlini and decided to stay there. They are protesting against the inhuman conditions in Moria. Cops tried to convince the protesting refugees to go back to the Moria camp, but the refugees decided to stay and announced that the protest could go on for a long time. Some of the refugees saod that it could go on for about a month.
Many people came to support the refugees. Some people of the Cars of Hope collective immediately brought a lot of water and distributed it to the protesting refugees. The collective is active in many projects at the the moment and need support to continue their work on Lesvos.
