Immigrants and Refugees Scramble Over Food on Greek Island of Lesvos

The Greek island of Lesvos, located just a few miles from Turkey, is experiencing a massive influx of refugees and immigrants, and signs of a tense atmosphere are becoming apparent.

A video by lesvosnews on Wednesday allegedly shows immigrants and refugees fighting over a van containing food that was to be delivered to a refugee settlement where 2,500 people are living. The footage shows them scrambling to get to the van while some of them even climb on top of the vehicle.

Lesvos had 15,000 refugees cross from Turkey just in the month of June. The situation has become overwhelming, with the island lacking the necessary infrastructure to deal with these numbers. On Sunday night, a group of immigrants and refugees revolted in their settlement and threw rocks to Coast Guard officers on duty.

“We are going to mourn victims. The situation has become uncontrollable for a while now. Today it was me, tomorrow its will be someone else. There are thousands of migrants on the island. How can we handle them? 100 to 200 leave daily but at the same time another five hundred arrive,” an injured officer told protothema.gr.

The new arrivals are allegedly frustrated with the fact that they are forced to stay on the island under appalling conditions and are not being issued the proper documents to leave and potentially move on further into Europe.

According to the report, there are 2,500 immigrants and refugees living in a space that is able to host 600 people. Another 800 are staying in the island’s only reception center in the area of Moria. There are 400 personnel on the island.

  1. 15,000 illegal 3rd world immigrants crossed from Turkey into Lesvos just in the month of June – The Turkish government facilitates the arrival of illegal 3rd world immigrants to Greece, in line with the “Ozal doctrine”, initiated by former Turkish Prime Minister, Turgut Özal who stated that:

    “We do not need to make war with Greece. We just need to send them a few millions illegal immigrants from Turkey and finish with them.”

  2. WATCH on You Tube “Θέλατε ΠΑΣΟΚ, ΚΚΕ και ΣΥΡΙΖΑ στην Μυτιλήνη” in this video the program host Στέφανος Χίος notes that Lesvos has been a Leftist stronghold for many years, with most residents voting consistently for Leftist PASOK, radical leftist SYRIZA, and Stalinist KKE. He tells the residents of Mytilene to ask the MPs in PASOK, KKE & SYRIZA, who they themselves voted for, to come save them from the illegal immigrant hordes saturating Lesvos.

  3. Yes, her daddy should grow a spine and fight back, instead of this tail between the legs action. Almost 200,000 this year, it’s just frigging crazy! Why to Europe? Run to Africa or Saudi, or or or anywhere else but no, let’s run to Europe where we can live off the dole and fûck the white girls.. If I were running one of those states taking the brunt of this nonsense (like Italy, Greece, etc) I would have closed the coast down with gunfire. Word would get around quickly, the chancers would try their luck elsewhere.
