Syrian(?) refugee little girl and family drown in Greece

This 3 October 2019 video says about itself:

A report by the European Council has warned Greece of the worsening living conditions at refugee detention centres on Greek islands. The European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman Treatment visited several detention centres this year and revealed instances of forced deportations and abuse of migrants. Greece says it can’t handle the arrival of more asylum seekers, with Athens warning it might deport 10,000 migrants back to Turkey after protests at its detention facilities.

Four migrants drowned in Kos

Posted on 26/07/2013 by icantrelaxingreece

The corpses of a 10 year old girl, two women and a man were found on a coast of Kos island. Probably Syrian immigrants who were aboard a boat that sank on Thursday between Kos and Pserimos.

Local port authorities were mobilised after the testimony of a Syrian who was rescued on Thursday by a fishing boat. The Syrian said he was aboard a boat with 11 other people with whom they had departed from the coast of Turkey trying to reach one of the Greek islands.

At the same time the authorities issued the first residence permits to foreign investors investing in the Greek real estate market.

Translated from ‘Eleftherotypia’s’ website, 26/07/2013. Available online at:

Syrian immigrants immigrate because of the horrible war going on in Syria. They are refugees; though the Greek government is in denial about that.

  5. Dear amazing Avaazers,

    Christine delivering petition

    It’s amazing what one person can achieve using the internet. Christine started a petition on the Avaaz site to save her Syrian schoolmates from expulsion when war cut off tuition money from home, and won, changing hundreds of lives! Click here to start your own petition on an issue you care about and you could get up to $10,000 to help supercharge your campaign:

    It’s staggering what one person can accomplish these days with the help of the internet. Take Christine, a UK student at Leeds University. She was shocked when she heard that Syrian students at her school might be expelled and even deported back to the nightmare in Syria because they couldn’t pay their school fees, some because their families had been killed or impoverished. Christine stepped in and actually saved hundreds of students at dozens of universities from this fate!

    She did it by getting together with some friends and starting a petition on the Avaaz community petitions website. The petition was good, sensible, and emotionally compelling. She only sent it to a few friends, but they sent it to more, and it soon blew up on twitter, with over 45,000 people signing! The Avaaz team helped Christine get the story on TV and in major newspapers, and government ministers pushed schools to waive fees and launched a plan to make sure no student ever faces expulsion because of war back home again.

    This stuff is powerful, it’s the next generation of Avaaz, where any one of us can start campaigns in our communities, nations and even globally. The potential of this to change the world is why our community is now offering up to $10,000 in support of the best petitions started by our members to make the biggest impact possible. Imagine not only getting thousands of people behind a cause, but also having $10,000 to fund the best way to win – anything from dozens of radio ads to funding a rally to building a giant billboard or float. The new simplified petition site means it takes just a minute to give it a shot, on literally anything you know needs to change:

According to preliminary information, migrants alerted the police via cell phone that they are in danger. The 15 rescued migrants will be transported as a precaution in hospitals of Preveza and Lefkada.
