Thes­sa­loniki mayor: ac­tivists bring­ing ‘chaos’

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Af­ter ac­tivists camp­ing on the grounds of Thes­sa­loniki’s Aris­to­tle Univer­sity brought hun­dreds of mi­grants onto the site and van­dal­ized sev­eral buses, the city’s mayor told Kathimerini that he be­lieves they are in­ten­tion­ally try­ing to cause prob­lems.

“It’s clear they want to cre­ate chaos,” Yian­nis Boutaris said about Greek and for­eign sup­port­ers of the No Border Camp pro-refugee move­ment who have or­ga­nized the sitin at two fac­ul­ties. Around 1,000 peo­ple have been on the site since the week­end and have been joined by hun­dreds of mi­grants brought there by ac­tivists from re­cep­tion cen­ters in the broader area.
