Amsterdam. Netherlands. Call for a demonstration against the war on migrants in the Greek border area on March14, 2020.
Originally published by Anarchistische Groep Amsterdam Facebook event page.
The EU, the Turkish and Greek state decided to play with human lives. Several immigrants try to pass the borders from Turkey to Greece and Europe, but are being blocked violently by Greek forces. The Greek government decided to close the borders with the support of the EU and keep anyone seeking asylum from getting in the country.
Frontex and the Greek coastguard violently prevent boats from reaching the islands, while one child has drowned. NGOs and journalists covering the incidents in the islands have been attacked by nationalists. In the land borders, the military, police forces, armed civilians and fascists gathered to block immigrants firing tear gas and even bullets. One immigrant is dead and several wounded.
At the same time, those immigrants that are already in Greece live in camps in horrible conditions. The EU decided to provide 700 million euros to the Greek state, while lots of money is spend for military and police operations. All this money and much more that’s in the pockets of those in power who get richer by exploiting our lives, could be used to help immigrants establish and live in Europe.
We are angry because governments play with people’s lives. We want immigrants in our neighbourhoods, our schools, our working places and in our social struggles. The earth does not belong to anyone, we demand freedom of movement!
