On the 18th of July 2017, prisoners in Moria held a peaceful protest outside of European Asylum Support Office. Their demand was simple: freedom of movement for everyone who has been trapped on the island for more than six months, and humane living conditions. All of the 35 people arrested and accused of crimes, seem to be chosen out of coincidence. They are also accused for exactly the same crimes. During the arrest, the police used more violence than needed including teargas. One of the accused refugees was taken to hospital where he had to stay for a week.
To give everyone a chance, Legal Center Lesbos is crowdfunding in order to be able to provide the legal support needed for the trials. They are running out of time, so HELP THEM HERE, NOW.
