Evacuate Moria now!

The pictures and videos of the burning refugee camp Moria situated on the Greek island of Lesbos last week have shocked us deeply. Thousands of people situated within the camps had to flee and look for shelter on the streets – they had to choose between the raging fire within the camp and being hit by teargas aimed at them by the police, trying to keep them from enterin Mytilini.

This is the horrible truth about the EU’s ongoing containment politics, which are praised and encouraged by political representatives.

We have all the means necessary to help those who are forced to stay in Moria – let’s use them! We demand an immediate stop of these murderous political tactics and an unconditional accommodation of all refugees.

As Organising Bureau of European School Student Unions, we demand safety for everyone, especially to the youngsters and children, our peers.
