The E.U Executive have announced that they will be lifting the 6 year ban on returning refugees to Greece from other European countries.
The move is being hailed as a vote of confidence in Greece, claiming that improvements have been made regarding living conditions for refugees. However, only 8,000 people of the 160,000 target have been relocated from Greece and Italy.
Many countries, including the U.K have refused to take any refugees from these countries. We are outraged that the E.U is talking about sending people back rather than fulfilling its duties. As leaders bicker in Brussels, thousands spend another winter in tents, warehouses and abandoned buildings watching their lives slip away.
