“People fend for themselves in order not to steal, not to sell drugs…” – Abdel

People fend for themselves in order not to steal, not to sell drugs. They search inside garbage bins, they find shoes, clothes, etc. This shows that they are not ready to do bad things. They fight to survive. All these people are immigrants, refugees. And all Greece can do for them is to send the police to take away everything they found, and then arrest them. What do they think? That we should steal or what? That we should do bad things to get money or what? In this picture, people are running away from the police. Sometimes the police come and hit us, they even hit women, and send them to prison. The life of refugees in Greece is really painful.
