Letters from Pagani

We received these two letters today:

Prisoners requesting Freedom to the Society of Greece

First we would like to thank the people as well as the government of Greece. We the prisoners we are suffering a lot of problems, to mention some of them:

  • Health Problems due to lack of sanitation. Such as skin diseases and diarrhea
  • We the teenagers are around 300, having hardship times because the dimensions of the rooms is too small. As a result, we are forced to sleep on the ground without blankets.
  • We didn’t expect such jail room from the government of Greece., treating teenagers in such a way

So as to conclude we are requesting the government of Greece, international community, European Union, human righters, UNHCR, UNICEF and all the remaining NGOs to make a solution as soon as possible just to get our freedom.

Thank you for your care.
Asodii – Azada



Thanks again.

We have a lot of problems in this jail.

  • We have health problems like stress, skin diseases, heart problems, blood pressure, diabetes, but we didn’t get good care (just as animals)
  • We have no facilities of taking shower, WC. It’s hard to make conclusion of our problems by qaiting our bad situations. So till waiting for your great help
  • Every moment due to great stress a lot of prisoners cry every second and as a [?] they need to make suicides

So please don’t go out of this compound until we get our freedom.

Thanks a lot.

About w2eu

This is the blog of the antiracist network Welcome to Europe. It was formerly known as lesvos09.antira.info.


The name Welcome to Europe expresses the discontent and anger we feel when looking at the fatal realities of the European external border: the long documented deaths and suffering have continued for years, and no end is in sight. We stand for a grassroots movement that embraces migration and wants to create a Europe of hospitality.


We maintain our focus on the European external border in Greece, but will not limit ourselves to that geographical area. The right of freely roaming the globe has to be fought for everywhere. Join us!
