Pictures | Video from the Police ath the Camp | Video from the Lock on action early in the morning

Early in the morning one person locked himself to the town halls porch.

Unfortunatelly the police seems to be quite well prepared for this kind of actions and the person was cut off the door pretty soon.

At around 3 pm the police partially closed the camp and the entry was denied to activists and visitors.

An hour later more police forces arrived and some of the activists gathered.

The activists were chanting slogans like "No Border No Nation" "Police pour tout - Justice nulle pas" etc.

Until 7 pm there have not been seriouse confrontations. The migrants, who in big numbers participate in the camp, remain astonishingly relaxed. In fact they are the ones who are primarily threatened by the police presence.

Meanwhile on the camp the radio started its transmission and the cinema is showing documentaries. People are playing soccer and a workshop about the situation in the detention camp and the No Border Camp in Lesvos took place. The kitchen provided awesome food for lunch and is right now preparing the dinner for everyone.

Thanks to all the Volunteers.
