AYS 10/7: Chauvinism rears its ugly head in Greece once more, part of a long series of attacks against the vulnerable.

Today’s clashes on Cherso in Mazaraki Camp took place between Arab and Kurdish refugees, after a group of Arabs said yesterday that they will kill Kurds. The situation looks quite grave and it is likely that the solution will be similar to the one applied to the Yazidis, who were relocated after being attacked in the same camp on Thursday. Such tensions are greatly exacerbated owing to poor living conditions.
