Anarchists Hit Greek Migration Ministry, Protesting Refugee Camp

September 24, 2020

ATHENS – Believed the notorious anarchist group Rouvikonas, a group of five people ran into Greece's Migration Ministry Sept. 24 and spray painted a slogan on a wall next to the entrance denouncing a new tent city on Lesbos for refugees and migrants.

The office of Migration Minister Notis Mitarakis is located in the building in the central Athens rich enclave of Kolonaki but not entered, the group spraying “No To Modern Dachaus,” in reference to the camp that's being constructed to replace the Moria facility that was burned in protest of a quarantine after COVID-19 cases were found.

The slogan was in reference to a Nazi WWII concentration camp, the move showing the group may be resurging after being out of sight during the pandemic after repeatedly hitting a number of targets including government offices in various protests.

A member of Rouvikonas later posted a message on social media making reference to the Moria fire. Some 12,500 refugees and migrants were left homeless for days and the government said nearly three-quarters had been moved into tents, the residents saying the conditions are not fit.
