Samos Screening Center

This Summer, most of the action will take place in Samos, another Aegean Island. In Mytilini, we found the Detetion Center of Pagani, one in the tradition of the old system. In samos there is one of the first so called “screening centers” that is part of the new “humanitarian” system of the new greek goverment.
The Video is taken during a Hunger strike in Samos detention centre in April 2010.

About w2eu

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


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!
