Refugees & Migrants
Mar 8, 2018

«Τον τελευταίο ένα μήνα 8 έφηβα κορίτσια από το Αφγανιστάν, το Ιράν, το Ιράκ και τη Συρία συναντιόμασταν σχεδόν κάθε μέρα για να μιλήσουμε για όσα περάσαμε και για το πώς φανταζόμαστε το μέλλον μας, με τη βοήθεια της δασκάλας μας, Chloe.

Πολύ γρήγορα καταλάβαμε πόσο σημαντικό ήταν για μας να μιλάμε για τις φιλοδοξίες μας και για τα δικαιώματα που έχουμε ως γυναίκες.  Ελπίζουμε να απολαύσετε το περιοδικό που φτιάξαμε και να το μοιραστείτε και με άλλους.

Είμαστε αλληλέγγυες στις γυναίκες που καταπιέζονται σε όλο τον κόσμο,

ZINE is a platform for expression in the midst of uncertainty, an attempt to control one’s own narrative when circumstances and bureaucracy are wearing away at that right where the refugees of Leros’ hotspot are concerned. Instead of an identity based in police paperwork, asylum applications, or case numbers, ZINE is composed of poetry, art, and personal narratives. It is that age-old rebel yell for humanity, this time coming from the hotspots of Greece. It is produced by Echo100Plus at The Hub – a community center on the island of Leros – where refugees who reside in RIC facilities

"Welcome to Leros is a story of chaos, heartache, sometimes humour; of hope and solidarity. It tells how ordinary people living on a small Greek island join forces with a new community of international volunteers to respond to a sudden influx of refugees fleeing war, torture and persecution in the Middle East" (...) "It tells of a time when thousands of people across Europe rise in solidarity, offering whatever they can of themselves, inspired purely by compassion for their fellow human beings in their time of suffering and need."

A Syrian Princess is an e-Book published in Spring 2017.

It offers a very interesting personal account of the work of volunteers and activists on the north coast of Lesvos during the peak of the "Refugee and Migration Crisis" in October 2015.

This is a personal description of the rescue, relief and recetion efforts of numerous people that found themselves on that part of the island during this period, as well as the relations formed between them and the people arriving, but also, the local community of Skala Sykamias.
