Pikpa Camp Calls For Urgent Action To Decongest The Island

On Friday afternoon 25 May 2018, intense fighting broke out at Moria camp, leaving many people injured. A group of around 70 refugees, including many families with young children and several injured people, fled the violence and found refuge in a park in Mytilini. Some injured people were transferred to the hospital by ambulance. 

Two years after the EU-Turkey Statement  

2 years after the EU-Turkey statement, the local coordination group of refugee and migrant support in Lesvos calls for a solidarity action on Saturday 17 March at 12.00, in Sapfous Square.

Press Release 3 January 2018

Lesvos Solidarity calls for the immediate release of a vulnerable case currently unnecessarily detained in PROKEKA, the prison within Moria refugee camp. His is one of many inhumane and illegal detention cases linked to the EU-Turkey deal.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL

Refugees, Greek islanders and activists today called on European leaders to heed their plight in a flash mob on a beach on the island of Lesvos symbolising the spirit of “refugees welcome”, organized by Amnesty International and Lesvos Solidarity.

Activists and refugees come together to demand action from EU leaders

As thousands of refugees trapped on Lesvos continue to face appalling conditions and uncertainty over their future, local and international activists will join refugee activists for a week of events and training from 15-23 July to demand action by the EU.

What is the 24 Hour Project and its purpose?

It started in 2012 to compare New York and Los Angeles in one single day, to document the struggles and similarities of humans in different locations. Now in its 6th year we are thousands who come together in one single day to tell the bigger picture of human existence from more than 700 cities.

Dialogues Across Borders

Dialogues Across Borders questions and explores who are we to each other as the 'refugee crisis' unfolds. 

In 2016 a makeshift photography and poetry exhibition was co-created by refugees and volunteers at Lesvos Solidarity - Pikpa on the Greek island of Lesvos. The transnational friendships forged in this context and sustained by social media became the catalyst to a series of travelling interactive exhibitions across Europe.
