Abstract

In April 2013 we visited the “open” Pikpa camp that was provided by the municipality and run by volunteers on the Greek island of Lesvos. Just over a year later, on Sunday 11th May 2014, we went in search of the new ‘closed’
detention centre. We were to find that in addition to the current temporary detention ‘camp’ which we hoped to visit, the EU is funding the building of a new expanded detention centre, the Moria First Reception Camp, and it was to this we were directed by Greek friends.
