#safepassage : evacuation of Idomeni

Idomeni Evacuation: Inadequate Information And Services For Refugees (2016-05-27 21:03:44)

The evacuation of the biggest makeshift refugee camp in Greece, Idomeni was completed yesterday, 26 May.
At its peak, Idomeni hosted up to 14,000 refugees, who have been living there since the closure of the Balkan borders in early March.

The Associated Press reports that the last 783 people have now been transferred yesterday to organized shelters in northern Greece.

Many humanitarians and volunteers have expressed concern that the sites were not completed in time and people were transferred while works were still going on.

Many families and refugee children who were transferred from Idomeni to new sites in Northern Greece can not access “adequate basic services including food, water and accommodation,” said Save The Children.

In some camps a number of NGOs are already present and providing some level of assistance to refugees.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) noted that patients being moved from idomeni were “worried about the risk of interruption to their care and uncertain about what medical facilities will be available when they move.”

Further, the evacuation of Idomeni “cannot be considered a voluntary relocation as these people had no other choice, did not have adequate information, and assistance in the camp was drastically cut,” declared Loïc Jaeger, MSF’s Head of Mission in Greece.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) also expressed “concerns about the conditions at some of the new sites to which refugees are being transferred, including former warehouses in industrial zones.”

European human values killed

I always was proud to be a European citizen because of our social systems and values of humanity. Last year this – my – Europe I believed in disappeared. Last year I couldn’t think of the violation of these human values could grow worse. It did – I still cannot believe that the EU is paying billions to Turkey …. because we volunteers at the EU borders know how Turkey keeps people from getting to Greece – see pictures below. Billions are paid to a country violating freedom of speech and press, a country taking measures by killing humans….

I feel ashamed, angry and cannot believe that all this is really happening – haven’t there been a time when people sat together and agreed on human rights?
