On Saturday, hundreds of refugees took to the streets of Athens to protest against the Greek government’s new migration policies. The refugees accused the Greek government of “murdering” asylum seekers through their new legislation.
“Stop pushbacks, down with the government of murderers,” read one of the banners at the rally in front of parliament. Another read “The blood of the innocent cries out for justice.”
Some protestors carried signs which showed the dates when migrant boats sank in the Aegean Sea.
Some protestors drew parallels between the migrant boats sinking and the train crash on February 28th which left 57 people dead. Protestors directed the blame at the administration of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
“Mitsotakis, you have blood on your hands — dead kids at sea, dead kids on trains,” they chanted.
Since coming into government 4 years ago, Mitsotakis has strengthened both Greece’s land and sea borders with Turkey in an attempt to stop the flow of migrants arriving in Greece.
Police Minister Takis Theodorikakos announced this week that a 35-kilometer (22 mile) extension would be added to the steel fence on Greece-Turkey border. He confirmed that a contract for the extension would be signed “in the coming days.”
European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen announced in January that the EU was working on migration deals with countries such as Bangladesh, Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan and Nigeria to “improve returns and prevent departures.”
