Lesbos refugees march against persecution, EU-Turkey refugee deal

Hundreds of refugees marched in Lesbos, Greece on Saturday, to protest against the EU-Turkey refugee agreement and to draw attention to the living conditions in the island’s Moria migrant camp. The protesters marched with banners and flags chanting “freedom” and demanding the closure of the Moria detention facility as they made their way to the island’s capital Mytilene. The EU-Turkey refugee deal was signed one year ago. Under the agreement, Greece is allowed to return all ‘irregular’ migrants to Turkey and in return EU member states are to resettle more of the Syrian refugees living in Turkey.
