Fight for the rights of child refugees in Greece

Fight for the rights of child refugees in Greece

Stop putting unattended children into prison in squalid conditions without access to clean water and food. The Prison cells are like medieval dungeons with excrement on the floor. This is a totally unacceptable situation.

Why is this important?

The treatment of the children in this way contravenes article 37 of the United Nations charter for children. This treatment will result in long term physical, psychological and emotional damage to the children. It is not how a westernised nation should behave.

Reasons for signing

  • The conditions that the people in these cells survive in are not acceptable at all. But for a child the conditions are horrific. Urine soaked floors, no seating or beds...just blankets on the floor. Limited food and water. No stimulation, no fresh air. The stench is appalling and children are living in these conditions.
  • It is wrong to leave helpless and vulnerable children in these conditions. They are innocent in all of this
  • This is important! Think if they were related to you, what would you do?
