URGENT! CLOSE MORIA PRISON FOR REFUGEES! UNHRC fails to protect refugees!
Neither the Greek Government nor the United Nations, nor the European Union nor the parliamentarians have shown any response to the human tragedy of the refugees on the Greek islands, especially Lesvos!
Refugees getting their right to freedom is irrelevant to the EU doctors and ambulances in emergency times who refuse to aid a hungry woman who is hungry and cold! Women, children, men, all left in the cold and most dirty circumstances of rubbish all over the camp. UNHRC is failing!!

Hesam Shaeri Hesari FORCED TO Continue Hunger Strike in Moria on Lesvos
Yesterday Hesam announced that he was transferred to the detention center (section B) inside the Moria refugee camp on Lesvos, Greece. He continued his hunger strike, that he started 18 days ago. Three days ago Hesam also stopped drinking.
Hesam was transferred to Moria prison a few days ago, after he was imprisoned at the police station for about 80 days. Like other refugees in section B, Hesam was not allowed to use his cell phone to inform people about his transfer. In section B detainees are only allowed to use their cell phones once a week.
The Iranian refugee is in hunger strike for 18 days now and today is his third day of his dry hunger strike. His request for asylum was rejected, state authorities want to deport him. In Iran he was a political activist and converted his religion. In Iran Hesam’s life is in danger. The EU asylum system doesn’t seem to bother the fact that Hesam’s life is in danger when he gets deported. The fact that Hesam has a medical report about his psychological issues and that his physical condition has worsened after earlier hunger strikes, doesn’t stop authorities from keeping him in prison in the so-called EU “hotspot” Moria.
Arash Hampay wrote on his Facebook page that nobody is allowed to visit Hesam at the moment. Arash also wrote: “I had already experience of being in political and dictatorships prisons in Iran. In spite of having political activity against the regime but even I had right to call and used my cellphone but Hesam without having any crime and just for claiming asylum is kept in prison without having the visiting allowance.”
Open the borders and end this hostage, the persecution, imprisonment and deportation of refugees.
