Messages from Lesvos
Today 26-03-2016 a demonstration in Mitylene to say:
NO TO CLOSED DETENTION CENTRES
NO TO DEPORTATION TO UNSAFE TURKEY
STOP THE CRIMINALIZATION OF SOLIDARITY GROUPS
It is hard to put in words what is happening on the Greek Islands and mainland.
Refugees and volunteers did express some words and symbols on walls and signs.
Many things changed after the EU Turkey deal.
This deal will lead to the forced return of migrants and asylum seekers from the Greek Island.
About Lesvos Photo and Photography blog
Anjo visited Lesvos for the first time in 1989 . After that almost every year. The main income of this Island are olives and tourism.
Anjo started this blog in 2015 to share the beauty of this magical place.
At this moment more than 2500 refugees a day reach the Island. Those people need help. The Greek residents are very hospitable and help as much as they can.
From 5-26 october 2015 Anjo will travel to Lesvos. She will post daily photos and stories about the situation on this blog.
