In this show we ‘travel’ to Greece and Iran where people are suffering because of their political situation and borders.
In fact we are almost talking about the cause of refugees and the effects, what happens when you have to leave your country because of political turmoil and war.
We play an interview with ‘Amin’ a refugee in the Moria camp on the Greek Island of Lesvos. This interview was done by Riot Turtle our correspondent who spent some time in Greece finding out about refugee issues (and more). Riot Turtle is from enoughisenough14.org. Also mentioned as a way people are helping refugees is the Cars of Hope collective.
Over to Iran where the New Year saw mass protests around the country. The interview in this show was from a few weeks ago, now the number of people arrested is said to be 8000 and 50 are dead.
Linda interviewed Hafez Rahimi a Kurdish Iranian anarchist now living in England. He is from a group that has a number of social media sites.
After almost 1 month on Lesvos and in Athens I returned to Germany yesterday. The difference between people living in free spaces like the Notara 26 squat in Athens and the people who are forced to live in the Moria refugee camp is unbelievable. Today human rights activist Arash Hampay was forced o leave Lesvos.
