The Dark Ages

Everything around us point to the fact that we are witnessing one of the biggest population relocations in history. To tell the truth, these people are not simlpy relocated. They are exiled from their homes in order to save theirs and their children' s lives. Countless of souls have been lost during the process. A process that ends with the refugees debarkation on the Greek islands.

On the other side of the Mediterra, most European countries refuse to take refugees to their homelands. This intense refusal has everything to do with the political scenery that has been unfolded throughout the continent: Nationalism, racism and ever growing xenophobia keep spreading limitlessly.


Infact, the democratic (in the real sense of the word) and humanitarian values and prinsiples that defined the post-war Europe have long gone and been replaced with a tecnhocratic, bureaucratic sense of development.

But the thing is that Greek Islands and Greek mainland cannot stand the shame: to be soul prisons. The refugees, despite the efforts of Greek people and humanitarian organizations, are being packed inside fixed locations that hold almost absent welfare, sanitary and medical conditions.

European governments should be ashamed for that tragic and unprecedented situation that consists an insult (ύβρις) to humanty.

The worst part is that history tends to repeat itself. Let us not let that happen. Embrace the foreign people. Save the unescorted children.They are the fertilizer for a new, better European era.
