Activists place banner on the Acropolis for open borders
The Safe Passage-Stop Wars initiative has placed a banner on the Acropolis in Athens, demanding open borders, safe passage to refugees and an end to war.
Due to the closed border policy it has been estimated that over 46,000 refugees have effectively been “trapped” in Greece, unable to carry on their journey into Europe. The subsequent bottleneck at Idomeni, on the border with FYROM, has created a humanitarian crisis in Greece.
The symbolic initiative came in response to the critical summit in Brussels between the European Union and Turkey, where the fate of refugees will be determined.
