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.

PIKPA Mytilene began in 2012. It as an open space accommodating refugees and supports vulnerable groups of refugees and locals. It is also a venue for a creative meeting of people from all over the world. Furthermore, PIKPA operates as a support and reception structure in case of emergency.

PIKPA de Mytilène (Lesvos) fonctionne depuis 2012. Il s’agit d’un espace ouvert qui accueille des réfugiés, qui soutient des groupes vulnérables (réfugiés et locaux), et qui, en même temps, sert en tant que point de repère et rassemblement créatif des personnes qui viennent de tout le monde.

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.

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 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. 

ex -PIKPA camp, which hosts vulnerable refugees, is under threat of closure. It has been one of the best examples of solidarity in action. 
The threat of closure is both an attack on solidarity groups and part of the EU/Turkey plan of detention, deprivation of liberty & deportation. 
We must resist.
