FEATURE: Stay safe, stay angry, stay united!

It has been over two years since the beginning of the European crisis which unknown number of people in limbo built by incompetent bureaucrats from EU institutions, individual governments, and big non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations.

It will be a peaceful protest.
Stay safe and stay angry comrades.

Let us show solidarity with people on islands. At Samos, basic care has been provided by independent groups instead of those who are receiving huge amounts of money to do that. Pregnant women are sleeping outside, new born babies are sleeping in carton boxes, and people still facing difficulties with lack of water. No more borders, no more tears team pleads for help every day.


We stand with Jugend Rettet e.V and MSF!!!

United Rescue Aid team remind us one more that that sea rescue is not a crime, but the mandatory duty for all those at the sea.

Today, 106 people arrived in Greece, according to volunteer teams on islands: 33 arrived in North Maytlini; 26 to South Maytlini; and 47 to Samos. At this point, probably nobody knows how they will be treated and what rights they will be granted.
