Suspended Lives: Refugees and Migrants in Greece 

Thursday 18 Dec, 6pm at Unite The Union, 128 Theobald’s Road, London
To mark the International Migrants’ Day, 18 December, Antifascist Action for Greece (AAfG) is holding an event about the Greek state’s asylum policies and practices, and, in particular, its policy of indefinite detention of migrants – including children – in conditions that often amount to inhuman and degrading treatment.

There will be a screening of the documentary ‘Into the Fire-The Hidden Victims of Austerity in Greece’. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Ms. Elektra Leda Koutra (human rights lawyer and activist based in Greece, and chairperson of Hellenic Action for Human Rights – ‘Pleiades’), Dr Lena Karamanidou (lecturer in Sociology at City University, specializing in EU and Greek immigration and asylum policies and political discourse), as well as Matina Zestanaki and Mohammad Vahedi of the AAfG.

AAfG is proud to be exhibiting during the event thirty drawings made by children detained at the 'Amygdaleza' Migrant Detention Centre on the outskirts of Athens.

At the borders of the European Union’s 'Fortress Europe', human beings are detained in modern-day concentration camps, often violently deported, and routinely denied the rights to which they are entitled through a whole raft of legal provisions. Please do come along on Thursday 18 December 2014 to support our efforts to raise awareness of the outrageous treatment of migrants, including children, by the Greek state.
