As police violence and state oppression against protests which seek freedom and equality is nothing unique to Hungary, we support this call from Greece in support of 35 refugees who were attacked, tortured and arrested at the Moria detention center.
THE STRUGGLE OF THE 35 REFUGEES IS OUR STRUGGLE
On Tuesday 18th of July the Police attacked fiercely and without cause, on site at the hellish detention center of Moria on Lesvos island and arrested refugees and migrants of primarily African nationalities who were in the middle of a peaceful protest about the lengthy delays of approval regarding assylum applications they had submitted. They were also protesting about the horrible living conditions at the detention center of Moria. Right after the violent episodes that were actually caused by the Police and after the violent suppression of the protest gathering, the police proceeded with actions of sweeping arrests, during which members of the African community were vindictively percecuted and the 35 were detained. The policemen were mercilessly hitting whoever stood in their way which resulted in serious injuries for the majority of the refugees. The beatings and the torture continued even after the arrests of the 35, which were acted out randomly and without any evidence backing the charges. Sole criterion was the color of the skin of the accused as it was obvious that they were African migrants. The charges were identical for each and every case. In the following days, 30 of the accused had a change to make their statements and were rendered into custody and subsequently transfered to prisons on Chios island and Athens accordingly. As testified by the lawyers on their case, the living conditions in those prisons are horrendous. There is dire need for clothes, food and hygiene items for all prisoners. During the attack of the Police against the Refugees inside the hellish detention center of Moria, far right individuals acted in support and shadowing the Deep State of the after civil war State. The government of Syriza-Anel has full responsibility for the orgy of police violence and the seemless collaboration of Police and the State within State of the Far Right elements.
