Greece: 14 year old refugee girl attempts suicide at Elliniko Immigrant Detention Center

solidarité-avec-les-immigrants

A 14 year old refugee girl from Afghanistan was transferred to Evangelismos hospital following a suicide attempt on the 2nd of August. F. has been living in squalid conditions inside the Elliniko Immigrant Detention Center where she has been jailed for the past two months. This state run concentration camp is not only used to confine adult immigrant women, but also children who are sometimes unaccompanied. This inhumane practice of the police is seen as a necessary evil by the Syriza ”rights advocates” due to the complete lack of accommodation for immigrant and refugee children.

These are the same ”rights advocates” who repressed and destroyed occupied buildings providing shelter and support to immigrant/refugee men and women who face hardship in Greece.

Thankfully, F. is doing well now. But there are difficult days ahead of her in the Elliniko ”accommodation” camp where the tents are under the boiling sun among dirt and squalor.
