At a march on September 9, activists demanded that Frankfurt authorities allow the entry of refugees from camps such as the Moria facility in Greece which was devastated in a fire
Close to 70% of the tents and other material in the camp have been destroyed. As many as 13,000 refugees live in the Moria camp in the island of Lesbos
Successive Greek governments have done nothing to to ensure decent living conditions for the uprooted people. Instead, they are also evicting those who have been granted asylum from their accommodation facilities
Incidents of fire and clashes between refugees and a section of hostile natives have also been reported on the island.
Conditions in Moria and other refugee camps in Greece have deteriorated further due to the increased inflow of migrants after Turkey opened its borders allowing them to cross over to Europe
The right-wing government in Greece has slowed and suspended the asylum application process, increasing the number of inhabitants in the camps
The unbearable and inhumane conditions of the overcrowded migrant camp in Moria, Greece have already been subjected to widespread criticism
Volunteer groups report that refugees living in the Moria camp in Lesvos still do not have access to basic resources and face further postponement of their asylum process due to the lack of vulnerability assessments
