IMMIGRANT REVOLT in Pagani, the infamous detention centre in Mytilini, Lesbos Island in Greece. The areas adjacent to the detention building were set on fire by the immigrants. A small number of comrades are already there.
Pagani became infamous after its sub-human conditions were revealed in pictures and videos posted on-line.
The immigrants have also started demolishing the fence around the detention centre’s building. There is pressing need for more comrades there. If you can please come. More information will be posted later.
The immigrants that were detained in the three ground-floor cage rooms (cells) are outside, in the areas around the detention building. There is a lot of disorder on the first floor (above the ground floor).
Television crews are there. OPKE policing forces are along the small road nearby the back entrance of the detention centre. The situation is agitated.
The immigrants demand papers that would allow them to legally stay in Greece for 30 days and let them leave. These days there were over 600 detained immigrants in Pagani, while during a telephone conversation a bus carrying 40 new immigrants reached there.
It is unknown what will happen next.
