The Greek authorities making very clear again that they don't welcome any scrutiny at the border.
BREAKING - Last night, we were forced to leave our monitoring spot north of Lesvos by the @HCoastGuard. This is clearly a politically motivated form of repression to keep away witnesses from documenting illegal #pushbacks. Read more in our press release: mare-liberum.org/en/human-ri…

"A new wave of migrants in Bosnia is expected" - A prime example of the dangerous & unjustified fear-mongering over migration that has become all too common in the media. Does the journalist provide any real proof to support the statement? No. ba.n1info.com/vijesti/ocekuj…

In response to Israel's declaration of six vital Palestinian NGOs as "terrorist organizations," Sha3wan Jabarin of AlHaq says the decision is political and seeks to silence the institutions that are active on the int'l level to expose the violations of the Israeli occupation.

Last Friday (15/10) the huts where the migrant workers live were set on fire. 2 workers sustained burns, the huts with their belongings were burned to the ground, along with sheep & chickens. This seems to have been reported only yesterday, mainly on SM.
Migrant workers in the strawberry fields of Ilia and Achaia in 🇬🇷 are organising and collectively demanding better wages and working conditions. This is causing 'upheaval and concern' to their employers/exploiters, says the article. Good, it should.

Six border deaths recorded in Evros this year. We know this is absolutely not true and the numbers are way, way higher. Harsh policing and heavily curtailed media access to the border zone ensure the gruesome truth won't be in the public. (Source: IOM's Missing Migrants Project)
