New respect for Greece for sidling into the Brexit discussion at the last minute and slapping the ELGIN MARBLES card right on the table, truly a messy bitch who lives for righteous drama

Still in awe at this incredible T-Shirt I picked up this weekend, which was made by a very talented student at the Wave of Hope school in the Moria refugee camp. The Wave of Hope School which operates in the camp & has art classes & a library is truly an amazing, amazing thing.

A long-running dispute between Britain and Greece over ancient treasures has spilled into tensions over Brexit after a demand for the return of stolen cultural artefacts was added to the draft of a European Union negotiating mandate.

Insightful opinion by for “For five years, the asylum seeker and host communities in Lesvos have each met difficulty with dignity. It is long past time that Europe’s migration policies empower them, rather than overlook them”

A young man from Syria has reportedly set fire to where he was living in Amygdaleza detention centre in Athens in protest at the living conditions. Bear in mind the Greek govt hopes to build 5 detention centres across the five main island hotspots.

Wonderful piece by on the hope & resilience that is so rich and visible in Moria refugee camp if you take time to look behind the barbed wire and mud.

Over the years, I have worked with incredibly resilient and dedicated people⁠—local, seeking, and international⁠—in and elsewhere in Greece. Thank you for offering me a space to honor their ongoing experiences and their work.

On the other side of the equation. There are some very beautiful sides to Lesvos. The light and the hills at sunset are quiet and peaceful - unlike so much that is not here at the moment.

The town of Mantmados, Lesvos, near where the gov’t has allocated 261 acres 4 a closed detention facility. Yesterday & today locals have blocked the entrance to the proposed site in protest. Remarkable chorus of discontent from all sides (for diff reasons) over closed facilities.

Thanks Simeon! Also must shout out to who is doing some important work documenting daily life on the ground in Lesvos and a crucial follow for anyone who wants to understand the situation here better.

Brilliant opinion piece in Lesvian media on refugees & Lesvos. “For the ND government, the refugee issue is a slow death. It is a mud, a swamp, a marsh, a moving sand. It is submerged and the more it tries to escape, the more it sinks.”
