El Faro/S.P.

Yesterday, in Calais, the demontration for the support of migrants ans asylum seekers ended with installation in a new squat – an abandoned factory, after the police raid on 2 July that struck 600 foreigners, over 200 of which were in detention.
The militant.es who defend them suggest your organization to sign the release (attached) in hope that the level of support will prevent a police intervention against the squat.
Because the tense situation on the place (a device police standby around), your signature is expected very fast (the text should be made public as early as this afternoon).
Thanks in advance and best regards

Migration In Greece

Eleven Myths And Even More Truths. Publication of the RLS Office in Greece.

Are there too many immigrants living in Greece so that there is no more room for others? Are they „illegal immigrants“? Is the law on citizenship an „illegal immigrants“ magnet? Are foreigners, although we treat them in the best possible way, time bombs that threaten public health? Do they take our jobs and threaten our lives and properties? Albanians have integrated; are Pakistanis a different story? Is racist violence limited to a few isolated incidents? Did our own fathers emigrate legally?

We have repeatedly heard this and much more in the form of statements and not questions. But as deeply as they might be embedded in the public opinion, the above stereotypes prove to be tenuous: a level-headed review shows that not only they are dangerous (as they are often associated with extreme right-wing schools of thought), but they also do not correspond with the truth.

For at least twenty years, the migration issue in Greece is an issue which has been permanently coming to the forefront in different guises, taking up a central spot in public discussions. Those discussions are mostly dominated by distorted notions, while true facts are obscured, as migration is an issue that is instrumentalised by politics and exploited by the media. The actions of the main representatives of mass media and systematic interventions by the extreme right have led to the creation of social myths and at times even of situations of “moral panic”, which makes it more and more difficult to comprehend the phenomenon’s complexity and of course address it in a sober manner.
