moria 

I don’t feel like I know nearly enough about the situation to be comfortable talking about it in much detail, but I haven’t seen it mentioned on here at all even after searching so I guess I will anyway because I think it’s important people know.

Moria, the refugee camp in Greece where thousands of people lived in horrendous conditions, has burned down. Thousands of asylum seekers now have nowhere to live.

But it gets worse. The fire is being blamed on residents who were upset at the lack of protection they were being given against COVID-19. There were at least 36 people who had tested positive in the severely overcrowded camp.

The Greek government now wants to use this as an excuse to move to ‘“closed” detention camps in which the movement of people will be monitored more closely.’

They’re going to use this as an excuse to make things even worse for these poor people.

the European reaction to a humanitarian disaster is to propose that maybe refugee camps should be even more like fucking prisons

(I didn’t mean to imply here btw that Moria wasn’t already a prison, which it absolutely was)
