Migration and Struggle in Greece

Members of the Communist Party of Greece evict refugees’ squat in Lesvos!

Posted by clandestina on 11 November 2015

Yesterday, November 10, members of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), playing the role of the Riot Police, evacuated by force a squat for temporary accommodation of refugees/migrants. The former “workers’ center” building was occupied on November 7, 2015 by refugees and greeks in solidarity to them. It had been empty for many years, but the Communist Party (who controls Mytilene workers’ center) was using it as storeroom.

Refugees and immigrants are obliged to sleep in the streets of Lesvos island, while they are waiting for the papers to travel to Athens and from there to the north of the European Union.

On this video you can see the reactions of the people in solidarity following the evacuation of the squat.
