The government, with yet another “mea culpa” on the issue of refugees and migrants, and after beating up the people of Lesbos and Chios and spraying them with chemicals, is at the moment withdrawing the special police forces sent to suppress local reactions.

These violent incidents have erupted after local protests against the building of “closed” camps—referred to as “prisons for the refugees and migrants”. 

Now, the government is calling for dialogue! At the same time, there are serious allegations by press unions that it has enforced “preventative censorship” on the public TV channel ERT. MeRA25 is calling for its administration to immediately take back these antidemocratic decisions.

Every single day that the government proves itself to be incompetent and dangerous to the islanders and the refugees and migrants, they also prove themselves to be destructive to our democracy.
