PATRA: THE RESULT OF ELLINKO CAMP

Patra

As of Sunday, 14th May, 2017, Patra has over 70 refugees – all male adults and unaccompanied minors and many from Afghanistan/Elliniko Camp that are risking their lives. This rise again is the result of the Elliniko camp closure in urban Athens, many families and individuals have made the decision to send loved ones to Patra in the hope to leave Greece before being confined in unknown locations/camps and for an undetermined amount of time.

As the result of the field trip by members of the Generation Outside of Afghanistan Network in Athens, the interviews with people risking their lives is a reminder of their dangerous past when the first arrivals of people/minors came to Europe via Greece post 2001.

We hope to support and bring awareness for the second generation of people arriving and that risking their lives illegally from Patra to Italy. Many victims have died, broken limbs and have never been seen again using these unprotected routes.

IF AFGHANS WERE IN THE PROGRAM OF RELOCATION THERE WOULD BE NO PATRA AGAIN
