500 refugees, followed by 300 more, broke the main gate of the 'hot spot' Vial on Chios island and walked 10km to the harbor where they await the night ferry to Athens

As the 'prototype hotspot' in Chios empties of 'detainees', a term indicated by police on papers and banners on the wall, as conscript scum come to realize their role in the building of said hotspot, as MdM and other NGOIs withdraw from the Vial, or are removed by police fearing 'security', be warned there are those who say to the chair of the United Nations, we shall rewrite your so called Article 13 of your 'Universal Declaration of Human Rights', in blood
(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of any state, subject only to local custom and tradition.
(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country, or any other.

These words you can see through the dead bodies of drowned migrants, in bullets that fly every other night at the so called people-smugglers, while Panagiotis Tsakos, a private individual and shipbroker, hosts the annual meeting of the Frontex organization at the Maria Tsakos Foundation in Chios. As our island is bombed by the Hellenist Army. As one ambulance is left to serve 50,000 people and an ongoing war. At Cecilia Malmstrom wonders about the $500 million that was given to Greece betweeen 2010 and 2015..

The future awaits as they say, and we are ready for it.
