GREEK police began moving refugees displaced by the fire at the notorious Moria camp to a new location on Lesbos today.
A stretch of motorway on which thousands of asylum-seekers have been sleeping rough for over a week was divided into sections and people were tested for Covid-19 in batches before transfer.
Sonia Nandzik, co-founder of citizen journalist project Refocus Media Labs, told the Morning Star that people did not wish to move to “a new Moria.”
Since the new camp at Kara Tepe was set up at the weekend just 550 of 12,000 refugees had moved in voluntarily.
“People say it’s the second Moria,” Ms Nandzik said. “It looks nicer of course because of the white tents, next to one another, but it’s very close to the sea. When the rain comes, it’s going to be a tragedy because they will not withstand the wind and rain.”
A post by Aegean Boat Report agreed, stating: “The tents are mostly put directly on the ground, without palettes underneath, and when it starts to rain, water and mud will be a huge problem.” It added that press were being denied access.
