That pleasant country Greece has changed remarkably over the last couple of years, What the IMF, (International Mankind Fuckers) and the rest of the financial Mafia have done to that country is a crime of tremendous proportions. A country that welcomed people has now become a very dangerous place for immigrants. The rapid economic decline, in certain circumstances, has brought people together in resistance, co-operation and solidarity, however it has also unleashed a wave of fascist anti-immigrant sentiment.
Monday, August 27, 2012From our friends at Reelnews:
After making Our Present is Your Future, we went to Greece a second time to speak to immigrants and refugees about their life in Greece. Many of those we spoke to were homeless, and often didn’t know where their next meal would come from. Trying to reach safety in Europe, they get trapped in Greece, in the midst of the economic crisis. They are left to fend for themselves. And people are scared. The streets in Greece aren’t safe – for those with the wrong skin colour. A 16 year old Somali was attacked an beaten by a group of men, after they shouted at him: “Hey black! You come to Greece? You will know Greece today!”
In preparation for this film we set up a website, with links to different organisations who work to support immigrants and refugees. Check it out here!
