#Lesvos: Bye-bye #Moria

Lesvos. Greece. When a prison burns down, those of us who have experienced, even for a moment, the condition of imprisonment, can only shudder with delight. Regardless of whether a new one will be built after its demolition, and regardless of whether the empty cells will be refilled after the escape of some prisoners, the fact of the escape can only fill us with joy. After all, the struggle for the abolition of every prison, goes through the struggle for individual and social liberation, right here and now.

#Moria, one day we’ll pay for it: The agonizing screams of migrants being tear gassed by riot cops [Video]

Lesvos. Greece. When they were faced with the horrors of war and violence, we failed them, so they were forced to abandon the places where they lived. When they crossed the borders to escape to Europe, we closed them up indefinitely into overcrowded camps in the outskirts of the continent, like Lesbos island, forbidding them to freely move within Europe. When the pandemic came, we locked them up like prisoners inside the camps for almost 5 months. When one of those cramped refugee camps in Moria (built for 3.000 people, while housing 13.000) was burnt to the ground, we sent an army of riot policemen to make sure that they cannot leave Lesbos island. When they tried to move to Mytilene, the capital town of the island, to get food and water, we blocked their way with scores of riot policemen and local racists. When frustrated at the lack of help, they protested for being intentionally starved, in order to be forced to move to a concentration camp, where they’ll be imprisoned in return for food and water, we teargassed their small children and their elderly, we teargassed all of them.
