Refugees & Migrants
Tomorrow, 11 May 2018, the trial will be held for ten asylum seekers who have been charged with arson and other lesser crimes, related to riots that took place in Moria Camp on 10 July 2017 in Lesvos. Similar to the case of the Moria 35, we believe this prosecution is part of an ongoing policy to criminalize and silence those who question their hostile containment in Moria and on Lesvos island.
The case of the Moria 35 is about 35 Africans arrested by the Greek Authorities in July 2017 after clashes in Moria RIC. As the trial of the case is about to start on Friday 20 Apr. 2018 in Chios, a campaign has been launched by Greek and International collectivities and organizations for the support of the 35 migrants from Africa. On Saturday 14th of April a demonstration took place in Athens, and on Tuesday 17th of April, a demonstration took place in Mytilene. Also, a documentary on the case has been released recently.
