Riot at the Fylakion detention centre (Evros - Greece)
4 December. Last Tuesday, a riot broke out, one of the most serious to date, at the
detention centre at Fylakion in the Evros region, near the town of Orestiada and the
FRONTEX headquarters at the Greco-Turkish border. According to the policemen
guarding the centre, the sans papiers immigrants short-circuited the electricity
network causing a blackout, blocked the sewer system causing the overflow of waste
and caused minor damages to the centre’s building.
Special police forces were called in from Orestiada and the sans papiers welcomed
them by throwing chlorine detergent at them. They had been supplied bottles of
chlorine so that they keep the prison clean by themselves, since no cleaning service
is provided for the 3-year old detention centre, where up to 1000 refugees,
including families with small children, are being held in a building designed to
temporarily host 350 people at a time - with bad water, few toilets, no showers, and
no medical or legal help.
During the riot, four sans papiers are said to have escaped.
