Lesvos. Greece. Once again, the lockdown measures have been extended for Moria camp. With the resurgence of covid-19 in many european countries as an excuse, we can only expect this situation to continue indefininitly, and eventually be turned from a permanent state of exception into law. In combination with the new immigration laws, Moria will be defacto visible for the whole world to see for what it, and other structures like it, truly are: Prisons.Continue reading No Border Kitchen #Lesvos: “#Covid19 provides the perfect opportunity to incease feelings of xenophobia and nationalism.”
Throughout the first half year of 2020 a lot of things that where already set in motion been brought to the next level. With a brand new floating fence and an extension of the covid-19 related measures in Moria the greek goverment continues this escalation. Looking back at the first half of the year we can safely conclude that the greek goverment and their european sponsers have done everything in their power to make the situation for migrants as worst as possible. The continued tolerance of the situation and practices of the greek goverment by the european “community” is not a suprise. Slowly we are seeing the true face of the people in power. As the events follow eachother, seemingly forever escalating to a level that is worse then the previous. And in silent apathy the “community” shakes it’s head and continues. When will it end?Continue reading Racist Europe gives commands, the coast guard has blood on its hands
Lesvos. Greece. Pushbacks. That will be the word that describes the situation on the Island at the moment. Almost on a daily basis, dinghy’s full of people are being pushed back. Without any consideration for safety, diginity or self determination the hellenic coast guard has been illegally denying people their right to request asylum. To them, these are not people, but only an annoying nousance that has to be kept out of the country at all costs. The pushbacks are not only happening at the sea, but the very idea of allowing migrants to be in europe is being pushed back. The physical presence confined to camps, out of sight and out of mind. Recently the goverment announced that they will strive for all refugee camps in greece to be turned into closed structures. This until “the flows form the opposite Turkish shores stop, so that the issue can reconsidered again by the goverment”. All but rhetoric, because we know the flow will never stop until there is no more structural inequality, racism and war, and they will never open the camps once they are closed. How will this ever end, when the nations of this world continue to profit of the misery and death that they cause?Continue reading No Border Kitchen Lesvos: About the situtation in #Lesvos

Lesvos. Greece. Luxembourg takes 12 kids. Germany will take 50. This is all that is being done. Meanwhile the ports of Italy and Malta have been declared unsafe, to keep migrants away. and the harbour of Libia was hit with live shelling ( and thus being actually unsafe) but people where still brought back there. Acsess to water in Moria has become more and more difficult, making life in the now closed camp more and more difficult every day. Turkey dropped migrants at the coastal towns and kept them there for a few hours to provoke greece, and afterwards brought back to detention centres.Continue reading No Border Kitchen #Lesvos: Get angry !
