No Border Kitchen Lesvos: About the situtation in #Lesvos

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?
