Ex­plo­sive sit­u­a­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Greek gov­ern­ment’s con­sis­tent fail­ure to man­age the refugee and mi­grant cri­sis has re­sulted in an ex­plo­sive sit­u­a­tion. The most re­cent events at the Souda reg­is­tra­tion camp on the east­ern Aegean is­land of Chios sug­gest that the sit­u­a­tion may soon spin even fur­ther out of con­trol and get much, much worse. The usual ex­cuse that Greece’s Euro­pean part­ners have not been do­ing their part in shar­ing the bur­den is get­ting stale, es­pe­cially as the Greek side has not even man­aged to cre­ate fa­cil­i­ties that en­sure de­cent liv­ing con­di­tions for the thou­sands of refugees and mi­grants on the is­lands, even though it has re­ceived mil­lions of eu­ros in fund­ing and sub­si­dies to do so. If some­thing doesn’t change soon, we are cer­tain to see ex­tremely vi­o­lent scenes un­fold­ing in a short while – to the great sat­is­fac­tion of ex­treme xeno­pho­bic el­e­ments.
