Riot Turtle on #Lesvos and #Athens: Self-Organized Spaces Where People Can Live in Dignity

After almost 1 month on Lesvos and in Athens I returned to Germany yesterday. The difference between people living in free spaces like the Notara 26 squat in Athens and the people who are forced to live in the Moria refugee camp is unbelievable. Today human rights activist Arash Hampay was forced o leave Lesvos.

#Musaferat: Informative Note on #Lesvos January 2018

The period of time that followed the previous update has been tense in every sense of the word. The expectedly increased autumn arrivals, combined with the Greek state policy of caging the migrants on the islands, have brought back to life images of living hell in the detention centres of the islands. Local racist and fascist voices, freed from the “compassionate” gaze of summer visitors, found once more the time and place to impose on public space. Local authorities decided to reshuffle the deck, claiming the major political benefits that they could extract from the situation. Two new deaths were added to the already long list of deaths in the detention centres on the island. At the same time, once more, there were some migrants who, defying threats and repression, stood tall.

Riot Turtle on #Lesvos: Every Day New Tents Are Popping Up

On December 17, I arrived on Lesvos. After almost 3 weeks I really ask myself how people can survive in camps like Moria on Lesvos. I have met so many wonderful people and they were really strong. Surviving the inhuman treatment, border closures, the lack of about everything and they keep on going. They have my deepest respect.

Taking a Shower at #Moria on #Lesvos: Christmas 2017 in #Europe

I arrived in the Moria camp in the early afternoon. It’s December the 25th and so its Christmas. Like always the smell of burning plastic was everywhere. While many people were celebrating the birth of a refugee in Bethlehem, who was born about 2000 years ago, I went to the Moria camp on Lesvos.

Working on the Balkan Route: “I Can Still Here Croatian Cops Screaming ‘One line!’ in #Opatovac”

States and borders are dividing people. Dividing in them and us. When do we finally get rid of these tools of suffering and oppression? On December 17 I will travel to Lesvos, Greece, again and will stay there for almost a month. It seems a long time ago that I started working with refugees on the Balkan route, but actually its not. A little more than two years have past after I drove to Slovenia. A good friend wrote me in September 2015 about the situation on the Croatian/Slovenian border and asked me to come and support. A lot has happened since then…

Video by the author of this aricle, Riot Turtle, about the next campaign on Lesvos.
