Three years of the EU-Turkey deal

This Monday 18th March marks three years since the EU-Turkey deal came into force. On Saturday 16 th March, a solidarity demonstration will take place at 12pm in Sappho Square, Mytilene, called by international actors working for the rights of migrants on the island.

Region Must Reconsider Decision To Close PIKPA

On 16 July 2018, following a hearing at the court of Mytilene and an inspection of the PIKPA refugee camp, an application for interim measures against the camp was rejected. The application was submitted by 5 hotel owners and 2 individuals both in the Neapoli area of Mytilene, and referred to risks of lost profits, environmental degradation, risks to public health and detrimental effects on the quality of life in the area. The Municipality of Lesvos as well as the Lesvos Hoteliers Association supported the application for the interim measures.
