Everybody Out!
Update posted by Lorna Donaldson On Jun 14

Today, a turn of events. This afternoon I arrived in Souda to find the many sordid and inhuman tents being cleared systematically from the beach. At face value a good thing, but the reality is that the 300 people camped there were simply being moved to within the confines of the camp boundaries, an impossible situation as it is already hopelessly overcrowded, or being told to return to Vial, where there is no space and people are sleeping on the street. Meantime camp residents were returning from daily chores to find their "homes" and, more importantly, belongings had disappeared. Many reasons given but perhaps the residents of the luxury cruise liner moored in the bay beyond were a little disturbed by what they were seeing?
