‘Refugees Are Not Criminals’ – Paris Protest Calls For EU Reforms

Demonstrators gathered in central Paris, on Sunday, to show solidarity with refugees left homeless after the Moria Camp fires on Greek Lesbos.

Activists called on the European Union to evacuate the camps in the island and change the union’s migration policy.

“We are here to ask European leaders to act urgently to evacuate the camp and provide the basic fundamental human rights to refugees,” said Farhad, an Iraqi migrant.

“My mother and her children are on the street, now they are in a closed camp, as prisoners. What did they do? Being a refugee is not a crime,” said Raham, an Afghan refugee.

The EU Commission is due to present new proposals on its migration policy on Wednesday.

Thousands of refugees were left homeless after fires destroyed the overcrowded Moria Camp, the biggest migrant camp in Europe, on the evening of September 8. A new camp was set near the Kara Tepe refugee camp, to house those affected by the fires.
