The Aegean Prison
On the 18th of november 2016, a far-right mob attacked the volunteer run Souda camp (seen on this photo). The assailants threw petrol bombs, fireworks and stones and assaulted some of the volunteers leaving some injured and damaging one of the tents.
The Aegean islands are home to around 10 000 refugees and migrants from all over the world. Since the `EU-Turkey Refugee Deal` the influx has been decreased but not stopped. This causes tensions to a part of the Chios population and the refugees/immigrants. A German couple who owned a holiday house on the eastern part told me “In the beginning they would come and go quickly so we helped them. Now they are staying, we don’t want that”.
