Support for the Greek Islands

To the Editor:

It was just a matter of time before this situation arose on the Greek-Turkish border. Turkey has a lot of nerve and is using the refugees and migrants to destroy Greece. Our islands are already overcrowded with refugees and how can Greece protect its borders and not let refugees pass through when human traffickers tell them to sink their boats in the middle of the sea? What are the Greeks supposed to do? Let little children drown?

And what is Frontex doing all these years? Is it merely decorative? We all know it helps with guarding the borders of Europe, and therefore, also Greece. They should help anyway and immediately. Everyone can talk about helping and make promises to help, but actions are what count in the end.

And one more thing: I am happy to hear about the initiative taken here in New York to show support for our islanders. I hope many people gather in Athens Square Park in Astoria for the rally on March 8.
