Turkish offensive and Idlib battle add to Greek concerns over rising asylum claims

Turkey’s military push into Syria has sparked fears in Greece, already struggling with a rise in the number of asylum claims in recent months, of a new wave of migration to Europe.

With camps on Aegean islands at breaking point, Athens has insisted the topic should lead the agenda at this week’s EU summit. “Europe shouldn’t be caught unprepared again,” Giorgos Koumoutsakos, the Greek minister for migration policy, told local media. “Nobody can be certain what is going to happen.”

On the 9th of October 2014 “Loukanikos”, internationally known as the “Riot Dog”, passed away in Athens at the age of 10.

His health was adversely affected by being repeatedly kicked by cops and from the asphyxiating teargas that the police routinely fire at protesters.

The spirit of Loukanikos lives on in our riots.

Moria camp mourns a woman killed last week – but accounts of riots and attacks on firefighters are false

First light is greeted with what sounds like a lament, a prolonged howl that casts a pall over the olive groves that surround Moria. At first it’s a disembodied cry lost among the twisted silver and green tree trunks that surround the camp on all sides. The sound is even more disconcerting when it starts to shift up and down through the registers. But it’s not a grief-stricken howl, it’s a singing drill. Mohammad is finishing his morning vocal warm-up and tuning his guitar.

The fearsome reputation of Moria, Greece’s most notorious island refugee camp, conditions expectations and can distort reality.

Former staff waiting for pay plan to take protests to Tory conference, and Greek hoteliers face a €500m hit

Staff from Thomas Cook are to hold protests at this week’s Tory party conference in Manchester and later at Downing Street over the government’s decision not to step in and save the company from liquidation.

Staff were due to get their monthly salaries on 30 September but are instead among Thomas Cook’s creditors, and it is now unclear when they will be paid. Some 150,000 UK holidaymakers are being repatriated at taxpayers’ expense following the demise of the world’s oldest tour operator. On 28 September, a further 16,700 customers were set to be flown home.

Exarchia: The struggle continues !


Given the daily police violence that has intensified since the beginning of the occupation of the rebel and solidarity neighbourhood of Athens:

“We will soon have deaths in Exarchia”

This sentence is repeated by many this morning, in a corner of the neighborhood where we have lunch with a few inhabitants, taking stock of the situation. An old anarchist companion is convinced that we are going to relive 1985 or 2008. In those years, a young activist was murdered by a policeman, and with each act of violence provoking very important riots. In December 2008, power shook. More than 300 banks and luxury stores burned. Parliament was besieged.

Today, the atmosphere is not the same in society, but ... Full Story Here

Andreas Kalbitz is vying to become rightwing party’s first state premier, in Brandenburg

A German olitician vying to become the first state premier for the rightwing populist Alternative für Deutschland in elections this Sunday took part in a neo-Nazi rally in Athens in 2007, documents leaked to the media show.

Andreas Kalbitz, 46, is the AfD’s lead candidate for Brandenburg, where polls suggest the party is competing with the centre-left Social Democratic party (SPD) in the race to become the state’s strongest political force.
