Lesbos,Greece: Police evicts self-organized refugee camp


The Greek state continues to target solidarity projects. Yesterday it was the Soli-cafe in Chios that was evicted by the police and today it was NoBorderKitchen’s turn in Lesbos.

For months, in the city of Mytilene, a group of solidarity activists, constituted by locals and foreigners, created a project where refugees could find a plate of food and a place to sleep. But today, the Greek police, the Municipality of Lesbos and a judge, evicted the place, arrested somewhat 400 refugees and sent them to Moria detention camp in order to be deported to Turkey.

A month ago the Greek Police had threatened the NoBorderKitchen activists with evacuation and today did not allow journalists to be present during the operation.
