#Athens: Intervention against the rejections of asylum claims by Iraqi applicants

Athens. Greece. On Tuesday 20/10, around 50 Iraqis gathered at the intersection of Vas. Sofias and Irodou Attikou streets to claim their right to asylum.

Originally published by Athens Indymedia.

For some time now, all asylum applications by Iraqi nationals have been rejected, forcing them to return to their ruined country, which some bow-tie Western technocrats consider a safe destination. The government’s response to the migrants’ request was the usual: police vans, MAT and DIAS cops to force the Iraqis to leave as soon as possible. With the police closely following, the gathered people marched from the sidewalk to Syntagma, where they dispersed.

After their call, we joined the mobilization, discussed about their problems, expressed our solidarity and handed texts calling for joint struggles of migrants and locals. Once again, their positive disposition for common struggles of local and migrants convinces us that these struggles are feasible and can be won.

Papers, healthcare, financial aid, housing, equal work rights and schooling for all!
