Wave of anti-migrant violence has left refugees without food and medical care – and more vulnerable to disease than ever before

News of a confirmed case of Covid-19 on Lesbos has sparked fears of the impact of an outbreak at the overcrowded Moria refugee camp, where refugees live in dire conditions with appalling hygiene and little medical care.

The troubling conditions in the camp have worsened this week, and tensions on the island have seen several NGOs forced to reduce or close services over safety fears.

In his photojournalism series Gayropa, Bradley Secker profiles individuals from around the world who have made the difficult decision to migrate to Europe and claim asylum because of their sexuality

“Gayropa” is a disparaging name often used by Russian conservatives and officials to refer to Europe, signifying both a lack of acceptance towards LGBTQ+ people, and a perceived separation between east and west in terms of attitudes towards LGBTQ+ rights.

Polarising as our current world may be, this project documents the unity and togetherness of LGBTQ+ people from around the world, who have made, and are making, new lives and communities of their own across the continent. These people are the opposite of victims, and they use their strength to move their lives forward, redefining the term “Gayropa” as they do so.

Blaze is second fire in a week at an installation built for migrants on the island

A fire broke out at a refugee centre on the Greek island of Lesbos, Greece’s firefighting service said, causing considerable damage to a warehouse but no injuries.

It was the second fire at an installation built for migrants, after a reception centre was burned down by unknown perpetrators last Monday. The warehouse, which contained furniture and electrical appliances, was completely destroyed, a firefighting service spokesman told the Associated Press, on condition of anonymity, because an investigation into the fire is ongoing.

Teargas fired by both sides amid political standoff over people displaced by war in Syria

The EU has told migrants in Turkey that Europe’s doors are closedas Greek and Turkish police fired teargas at their shared border amid growing tensions over the plight of Syria’s refugees.

In a blunt message, the EU’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said: “Don’t go to the border. The border is not open. If someone tells you that you can go because the border is open … that is not true.

Russian and Turkish leaders will try to hammer out yet another deal to stabilise Idlib

A summit between the leaders of Turkey and Russia on Thursday may be the last chance to work out a deal that avoids further calamity in north-west Syria.

Faced with increasing military losses in Idlib province and a potential wave of people fleeing the fighting, the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is eager for a ceasefire – and Vladimir Putin is ready to bargain.

Erdogan just as Putin wants to show how strong men they are.

Also Erdogan and Putin want to use the “rally behind the flag” effect to win the next election. (last election was not so great for Erdogan, as economy was weak)

TURKEY IS A VERY BAD PARTNER!

EU border agency on ‘high alert’ as Turkish president Erdoğan keeps crossings open

The UN has said 13,000 people have gathered to cross into Greece from Turkey following President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s vow to keep open his western borders for migrants and refugees seeking to travel into the EU.

With the crisis escalating, Greece’s prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, called a meeting of his national security council for Sunday evening. The EU’s border protection agency, Frontex, said it was on “high alert” and had deployed extra support to Greece.

Turkish leader claims 18,000 people have crossed into EU but some are met with teargas

Thousands of migrants may be in no man’s land between Turkey and Greece after Ankara opened its western borders, sparking chaotic scenes as Greek troops attempted to prevent refugees from entering Europe en masse.

Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, claimed 18,000 migrants had crossed the border, without immediately providing supporting evidence, but many appear to have been repelled by Greek border patrols firing teargas and stun grenades.

Charity says Athens depriving minors of adequate medical care for chronic illnesses

Greece’s government has been urged to order an immediate evacuation of more than 100 sick children from a notorious refugee camp on Lesbos.

Médecins Sans Frontières accused Athens of “deliberately depriving” at least 140 minors of adequate medical care for what it described as chronic, complex and life-threatening diseases and said it was urgent they were moved to the mainland or to other EU member states.

People here are deprived of their basic needs. To be a refugee generally means to struggle every day to find something to eat, to be in a safe place, to be respected, and to have the space to develop into the person one could potentially be.

Lord Dubs, who drafted amendment, calls MP opposition to measure ‘bitterly disappointing’

The government has been condemned by opposition MPs after overturning a House of Lords amendment to its Brexit legislation which would have restored the right of unaccompanied child refugees to be reunited with their families in the UK.

Lord Alf Dubs, the Labour peer and former child refugee who drafted the amendment which would have guaranteed the rights, said it was “bitterly disappointing” that the government had ordered Conservative MPs to oppose the measure.

Originally intended to hold 3,000 people, 19,000 now live at the Moria refugee camp – with no electricity, scant water and, for many, no shelter at all. Journalist Harriet Grant and photographer Giorgos Moutafis met some of those attempting to cope with life there

Above a hill on the north shore of Lesbos, volunteers watch the sea and the twinkling lights of Turkey day and night with binoculars. The coastguard hurry to respond when they see a boat approaching, trying to arrive in time to stop children falling in the icy cold water as they clamber onto rocks and beaches.

On the morning of 11 January, a group of migrants from Afghanistan make it ashore without being spotted and walk to an olive grove where they light a fire and call for help.
