Hundreds of Chiots marched in the center of Chios on Wednesday evening to protest the government’s migration policy and demand the closure of hotspots on the island.

The rally was organized by local committees which oppose what they described as the “conscious decision to turn the islands of the northern Aegean to open prisons”.

When the crowd gathered in the central square, four local committee heads took turns in speaking about the problems facing their communities. They criticized the government and local municipal authorities and decried the practices of some local NGOs and international organizations on the island. After the speeches, protesters walked to the port.
