Evaluation of noborder camp in Lesvos, Greece

06-10-2009 09:57

The infopoint
This summer saw two major bordercamps, one at the northwest of the Schengen-country, in Calais, France and one at its southern edge on the island lesvos, Greece. Many migrants who first arrived and were detained in Greece made their way to Calais, trying to reach the UK.

This raised new questions and conflicts, but also brought some ideas how political and social struggles could be made to merge. Here is an evaluation of the Lesvos border camp by transact from October 2009.

06-10-2009 06:37

International press coverage about the detention centre at Pagani was considerable and we return with many new impulses for transnational networking. Even if meetings were characterised by strong disagreements, our evaluation of Lesvos is overwhelmingly positive.(1)
