Aegean #Empathy on #Lesvos, teaching the world Sign In or Register to add photos

During the scheduled visit of Alexis Tsipras and Martin Schulz to Lesvos, the reality coincidentaly appeared this time more dramatic than expected, and nude. While the PM's motorcade was crossing the island just after landing at the airport of Mytilene, a live incident of 47 refugees in danger in the sea, made them face what the unstoppable agony of saving hundreds, daily, for the local community means. By the absence of volunteers on that moments, and while the refugees on the makeshift rubber boat crammed were asking for help, the Mayor and the Aegean General Secretary had to stop as to immediately respond to the emergency . Local Residents had rushed to the point volunteely, as it always happens multiple times daily, wherever on the island, and the Mayor was ready to dive himself, while the NGO lifeavors had not reached the spot yet. Finally the Doctors of the World saveguards came and the refugees were rescued. Martin Schulz admitted on his statements later : "People here face dramatic conditions. We saw people jump into the sea and swim to the shore. Locals treat refugees in a kind and discreet manner. Organizing the hot spots is meaningful only if we create more solidarity."
