Μεταναστευτικό

Η ιστορία είναι παλιά. Πριν από εκατό και ένα χρόνια, το 1914, στη Λέσβο ζούμε το πρώτο προσφυγικό κύμα από τα μικρασιατικά παράλια.

Η τοπική κοινωνία σοκάρεται, γίνεται προσπάθεια για την ένταξη των προσφύγων στην κοινωνία αλλά τα προβλήματα είναι πολλά. Γύρω στο ‘19 και ’20 πολλοί από τους πρόσφυγες επιστρέφουν στα σπίτια τους αλλά η Μικρασιατική καταστροφή του ‘22 ξυπνά και πάλι μνήμες του παρελθόντος με τη δεύτερη προσφυγιά.

However, we should not take the Greek results as a way to resolve our national electoral challenges…

Tackling the anti-migrant backlash in Greece and Europe

In light of the wave of populism continuing to gain ground, many European leaders are adopting the intolerant and scapegoating rhetoric of the far right. More than ever, social alliances against the extreme right are needed in order to counteract this trend and to promote the values of a Europe of solidarity.

A Mediterranean Recipe for Disaster

The situation on the ground in Greece continues to worsen, with each bailout ending in failure and increased poverty. Not only do such conditions act as fertile ground for the far-right, but the failure of leadership from the EU also call into question the very future of Europe.
