On Sunday, 20 of September, 100 North Iraq Kurds were evicted from the homes they were residing in, although they had been paying the rent, and they had the informal reveipts for that – which is a very usual thing in Greece, especially in the case of refugee new comers.  The order for the eviction was issued by the Major of the Daphne, and implementd by the police, who took the people out of their place by pointing them with guns.  The order was issued after complaints had been made by neighboors and school authorities on hygiene grounds.  The Major said the refugees are to be hosted for one or two days at  children summer camp facilities in Attica.
