BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:44 A.M.) – Hundreds of refugees marched on the Greek island of Lesbos on Saturday to protest against the EU-Turkey refugee agreement and to draw attention to the living conditions in the island’s Moria migrant camp.

The protesters marched with banners and flags chanting “freedom” and demanding the closure of the Moria detention facility as they made their way to the island’s capital Mytilene.

The EU-Turkey refugee deal was signed one year ago.

Under the agreement, Greece is allowed to return all ‘irregular’ migrants to Turkey and in return EU member states are to resettle more of the Syrian refugees living in Turkey.

The Turk Sultan has proclaimed himself head of the Ummah. Two days ago.

The Sunni Syrians and Turks in Germany love Erdogan’s anti-Fascism.

What a sacrilege to the charming 13th mountain Fez.

From which countries are niggers come to Lesbos? The boundaries of countries are to be able to verify the country, anyone entering their country, but the EU has Schengen regime that allows Europeans countries is that within this regime, cross the internal borders without border checks. But this does not mean that these Europeans without documents, can walk within the Schengen area.
