While a new “Moria” is being built, the Greek Minister for Migration has announced that the camp PIKPA on Lesvos will be closed by 31.10. The camp currently accommodates particularly vulnerable people in a dignified manner and with respect for their basic rights.
Since 2012, more than 30,000 particularly vulnerable people seeking protection – such as families with small children, victims of torture and people with disabilities – have been living in the camp, which is mainly run by volunteers.
We declare our solidarity with PIKPA and support the demands of Lesvos Solidarity. We appeal to the Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis, President of the Commission von der Leyen and Chancellor Merkel to take action against the closure of PIKPA and to guarantee the dignified accommodation of the residents! Defend Solidarity!
