Yesterday morning at 5 o’clock, riot police started to detain people in Camp Moria and in Community centers. They arrested around 50 persons of whom 20 – 25 persons were released later today.
First we assumed that they were hunting for people with two negative asylum decisions but as we found out they also arrested people with papers.
We think this happened for one reason: To raise fear.
Again they want to raise dread of deportation and detention among people, to increase suppression and by doing so, preventing the people to ask for their basic human rights.
We believe this, together with the super unjust court hearings that are going on these days in Mytilini court (we will publish an update about that soon!) are all to create an atmosphere of anxiety on the island.
We wish strength to all the people still detained in the police station and Moria’s section B and other places worldwide to not give up the struggle for freedom.
Another world is possible!
