Dear people in Mitilini,
we have left the island – many of us with the feeling of having left a place where we all felt at home somehow. This feeling is mainly dedicated to all of you: without you this journey back to the border would have never been possible! We want to thank all of you. We will never forget the warm welcome you gave to us. We left with the feeling of a great experience and with a lot of strength for all coming struggles.
We left also with worries for all those we had to leave behind.
Our worries are with all those who are still imprisoned in the detention centre Continue reading Thanks to the people in Mitilini!
For many of the young people the past two weeks have been special:
For the ones who had arrived in Lesvos some years ago and have reached other EU-countries and built their lives there.
For the ones who are fighting for their rights and the rights of all others in Germany and elsewhere.
For the ones who have newly arrived on Lesvos and are currently trying to find a way out from Greece.
We wish all of them a safe and good journey!

We came together today. Here in the harbour of Thermi we gathered for remembering the dead of the European border regime.

Since the Lampedusa tragedy with more than 300 dead a few days ago and yesterday another tragedy happend in front of the Italian island. All over Europe there is an outcry: this senseless death at the border has to be stopped! There should be safe ways for refugees to reach Europe!
