Athens Greece: Image of shame…

Nazism revisited. An image of shame from a railway station in Greece, where a train from the north of the country arrives at the paltform surrounded by dozens of greek riot policemen, that check the passengers for immigrants without papers and later carry them to concentration camps.

The Greek authorities’ ongoing sweeps targeting suspected migrants based on little more than their physical appearance violate international standards, Human Rights Watch said today. Since August 4, 2012, more than 6,000 foreigners presumed to be undocumented migrants have been taken into police stations for questioning, and more than 1,500 arrested for illegal entry and residence with a view to be moved and be imprisoned for many months to concentration camps.
