You Can Take The People Out Of Pikpa But You Can’t Take PIKPA Out Of The People

EVICTION OF PIKPA CAMP: a massive and unannounced Police operation took place to move the 74 residents, including 32 children, in order to evict Pikpa camp. “It is unacceptable and absurd that a place like Pikpa is forced to close” said Efi Latsoudi, Legal Representative of Lesvos Solidarity, “while Greek and European governments are supporting and promoting the new inhumane, degrading camp Moria 2.0”

The vulnerable residents of PIKPA camp are in danger due to their transfer to the new temporary camp in Kara Tepe. The premises of the former PIKPA camp in Neapoli Lesvos was offered in 2012 by the Municipality of Lesvos to the residents of the city for hosting refugees, who wereat the time living in the streets of Mytilene or the city’s port. Since then, it has operated as an open, model camp for facilitating the most vulnerable refugees and a sylum seekers, providing them with a safe place, psychosocial support and dignified living conditions.

At a time when a new, inhumane camp was re-constructed in Lesvos after a huge fire destroyed Moria camp, all dignified alternatives for accommodating refugees are under attack. The Greek minister for Asylum and Migration Mitarakis announced in the press on Wednesday that the government will close Pikpa camp by the end of October.

The fire that largely destroyed Moria camp in Lesvos is a direct result of the cruel policies of Greece and Europe. For years they have kept people trapped and abandoned in overcrowded island camps in Greece.
