Unnberable conditions in Refugee Camp around the Detention Center of Moria

Yesterday, 09/01/15, one somalien refugee died because of insuficient medical care in the madeshift refugee Camp outside the Detention Cemtet of Moria. Another one was bitten by snake. Please if anyone can help:
Dama, a refugee from Somalia, in the refugee Camp Moria, in Lesvos, contacted the Network w2eu to ask for help, weeping dramatically. His aunt, 47 years old, died last night due to cardiac problem. He was crying and shouting that his aunt did not have to die. She had a chronic heart problem, because of the inhuman living and medival conditions in the camp, she couldn’t survive.
Dama is in a very bad psychological condition, saying tht he can not stand this any more and will commit suicide. He needs immediate psychological support and care.
Αt the same time another girl from somalia wad bitten by a snake at the entrance of the camp. Fortunately she was transferred to the hospital and is well now.

The Situation for Refugees in the madeshift cps in Lesvos and al other entrance, transit and exit points is no longer sustainable. Enough is Enough. We need open borders and save entry routes for Refugees coming to Europe. Freedom of movement!! Refugees welcome!!

A little Story about justified anger -> Journey back to the borders Part III

Just before I went on my trip to Mytilene I saw in Germany the news about refugees in Greece. On TV it was reported on how aggressive and angry the refugees were in Greece (Mytilene). After I saw these news in Germany about the refugees I started to think and worry a bit. Would it all go alright? Would it be right to travel to Mytilene and help the people who require support? Would I endanger myself or not? These questions formed in my mind. I travelled nonetheless as I had already booked my ticket and had promised the group that I would come and participate.

When our ship dropped the anchor in the harbour of Mytilene, I saw from above used rubber vessels and many people (men, women, and children) who did not look well and who had to wait in the heat for their registration. When we went to our camping site (Charamida), somewhere far away from the harbour and the city, we saw families and men, who were lying on the street as they could not walk anymore and were tired. We stopped and gave them water and information. We then quickly went to our camp and unloaded our car. When the cars were empty we drove back to bring the refugees to the harbour to register.

Freedom of movement for everyone

Ferries not Frontex

During our journey back to the borders we had to witness for two weeks the situation for newly arrived refugees in Lesvos getting worse day by day.
More and more children, mothers, fathers and grandparents are risking their lives by crossing the Aegean sea.
After arriving and being thankful for surviving they are faced with the unbearable situation in Lesvos.
Walking in the sun for 2 – 68 km, waiting in dirty parking lots, at the port, in makeshift refugee camps like Kara Tepe and outside and inside the Detention center of Moria and elsewhere.
The Situation at other European arrival and transit points like Kos or Idomeni is not better.
It is time for the competent authorities of the European Union to provide for Ferries transporting refugees to Europe in a respectful and save way. Freedom of Movement for everybody!

Journey back Part III: What solidarity means to me!

It was a great journey back to the border 2015. And I got a lot of experience and we did so much together.
It was my dream to help those people that they don’t have any support and are leaving their country because of some problem. All of my us supported each other so we could do the best job possible.
We’re strong together and able to climb every high wall or fence.
