Things have been shitty in Greece for quite a few years now, with the economy tanking, fucked up austerity measures, asshole cops and nazis. To say that Greeks have been having a hard time is a fuckin understatement. Undocumented migrants in Greece have it even worse, not only the fact that they can’t work legally and that they are attacked by racist boneheads, but to make things more frustrating they can’t leave.
From their website:
In times of severe austerity things look bleak for Greek people, but they’re far worse for those who have recently arrived. Without housing, legal papers or support, migrants in Greece are faced with increasing and often violent racism at the hands of the growing Nazi party Golden Dawn and the police in Athens. Many are trapped by EU laws and legislation of other EU countries meaning they’d be returned to Greece if they managed to get to another member state, they are desperate to leave the country.
