This cannot be the best the UK has to offer vulnerable people who have fled war and persecution.

We call for an immediate closure of the barracks. All residents must be moved to safe accommodation, granted access to adequate healthcare and be allowed to properly isolate.

Napier barracks have been described by residents as a prison. But worse.

“Prisoners in prisons know how long they will be detained, we do not. prisoners know why they are being detained, we do not, we have come to seek protection.”

Napier Barracks in Kent has been used to house around 400 people seeking asylum.⁣

Not only are 22 people on suicide watch, but now over a quarter of the entire population of the facility has contracted COVID.

This is scandal, but not a surprise.

The rise of anti-immigration politics, blocks on NGOs & uncertainty from the pandemic & Brexit is creating a hostile atmosphere that is pushing people to the edge – and some beyond it to their deaths.

Thank you @ptr_yeung for talking to us for this piece.

The director of the temporary refugee camp on Lesvos has apparently banned refugees from taking and sharing photos of the horrible conditions they live in.

Photos like this one, for instance.

Another gag order to obscure a policy based on violence, exclusion and destitution.

Within each tent there is a story of tragedy and disappointment that words fail to describe. Aerial footage shows the tragedy suffered by more than a million civilians in the IDP camp in #Syria.

Yaser is a resident of the camp on #Lesvos. Last week saw rain, strong winds and subzero temperatures. Last night it snowed.

History is repeating itself. Just like the last 5 winters, vulnerable people have been condemned to brave winter in the toughest conditions imaginable.

Picture from a person who lives in #Lipa

Lack of water, very cold temperatures, lack of electricity in many tents, no medical care. No Human rights and no dignity.

Just few km away from EU border.

And with NO POLITICAL DECISION FROM BRUSSELS THAT COULD FINISH THIS SUFFERING

These were taken today at Malakasa camp in Eastern Greece. We have been told that whilst most residents have been moved into heated containers, 900 people are being housed in rub halls with unreliable heating units that regularly fail, leaving people freezing.

This weekend, temperatures dropped and we saw the year's first snow. The prefecture opened temporary accommodation as a token gesture. With an eviction planned early the next morning many chose to spend the night in the snow, instead of losing their tents in the morning.

This is what a police eviction looks like.⁣ There were almost 1000 evictions of camps in #Calais last year. This was one of them.⁣ To dehumanise people in this way. Its chilling. ⁣
⁣Worst of all, this wasnt even a "bad" eviction - teargas & rubber bullets are not uncommon.⁣

This is the horrific situation of thousands of children now in the IDP camps in #Syria. Their conditions are dire & the waters are besieging them from everywhere, as a result of torrential rains. #WhiteHelmets are doubling their efforts to reach all civilians as fast as possible.

“Regardless of immigration status”—this must become the global standard:

👉 “Biden has promised to make the vaccine available free of charge to all members of the public...regardless of immigration status.”

No one is safe until everyone is safe.
