A group of old Twareghan men gathered around a small fire to keep warm in the only “events hall” as they call it. They receive visitors here, watch TV, and organize events for refugees such as birthday parties, weddings, and even circumcision parties. They treated me to a round of Libyan green tea and chatted about their future with little hope of any return home to Tawergha.

Refugees Await Registration in a Camp...
Metylene, Lesbos

Refugees, who succeed to cross the maritime border between Turkey and Greece are being brought to the Moria Camp near the city of Mitylene, on the island of Lesbos, where the European border agency Frontex identify and screen them, before they may go to the Greek mainland. 

Moria Camp reminds us of a war zone. People are queuing, often for many days. They lie in the mud and sleep in tents because there is not enough space in the shelters. Human rights activists call the camp “Europe's shame”.
