Refugees trapped in Greece have held peaceful protests in the country’s main port, demanding that European countries open their borders to let them reach the continent’s prosperous heartland.

About 350 people from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan took part in the peaceful protests at Piraeus, the port of Athens, where some 4,000 people are stranded. They held up signs reading “Open the borders” and “We are humans too.”
