From August 5 to 12, another 645 migrants and refugees arrived on the northern Aegean islands. This is the largest number of migrants and refugees arriving on the Greek islands per week since the attempted military coup in Turkey, which occurred on Friday, July 15.

The mass arrival shows the rampant situation that has been created on the coast of Turkey, in relation to the control of flows from the authorities in Turkey.

Out of the 645 migrants and refugees who arrived in Greece this week, 60 arrived on Samos island, where there had been not inflow during the last months.

On Friday, August 12, as part of the European Union-Turkey Agreement, there are 3,836 people trapped on the island of Lesvos. In Chios there are 3.021 and in Samos there are another 1.048 people.

The islands of the northern Aegean are hosting 7,905 refugees and migrants, despite the constant transfers of people to Athens where they meet with the primary committee that grants asylum to refugees.

  1. Tsipiras and his leftist cronies should be arrested for treason. They have been effectively supporting the invasion of Greece under the guise of “human rights”.

    Greek leftists are essentially morons. They fantasize they live in an alternative reality post nationalist world where communist thugs won the cold war. Meanwhile other European nations have shut the door to migrants (and Greece) precisely because they are trying to protect their national identities.

    Our leftists are such orons, they don’t even notice that any “Greek” that calls Skopians “Macedonians”… to a man leftist. Some in Tsipiras government even want to change Greek schoolbooks to turn us into non-Greeks (literally ethnic cleansing). Some of our leftist cowards are even trying to be “pals”.. .with fascist VMRO that is trying to annex Macedonia Grecece.

    Treason.
