The missing people of Moria

When the fire destroyed Europe's biggest refugee camp Moria on September 8th, over 12000 people, were once again displaced and found themselves out on the streets.

Dehumanisation through pushback

Mare Liberum has seen evidence that since March of this year, over 8,000 people have been illegally and brutally forced back across the Greek-Turkish maritime border in the Aegean Sea.

October in the Aegean – a month of excessively brutal pushbacks

While the situation inside the camps is still more than critical and will worsen significantly with the upcoming winter, Greece continues to perform illegal pushbacks to an extent that is beyond anything there has ever been before.


The decision against the detention of our ships is valid!

Moria 2.0 - The reproduction of inhumanity

After years of the EU and Greece turning a blind eye, Moria refugee camp on Lesvos burned to the ground on the night of 8-9 September 2020. The underlying structures, however, remain in place and continue to reproduce the injustice elsewhere.

How involved is Germany in illegal pushbacks in the Aegean?

To what extent are German police and Bundeswehr (german military) ships involved in practices that violate international maritime law, the Geneva Convention and applicable EU law?

COVID-19 on the smaller Greek islands

Die Situation in den Lagern auf Kos und Leros ist etwas speziell, da es sich um weitgehend „geschlossene“ Lager handelt. Da die Lager und die Inseln, die sie beherbergen, viel kleiner sind, gibt es weniger Solidaritätsnetzwerke und sehr wenig Informationen über die aktuelle Situation.

500 Million for Deterrence

In July 2020, the European Union granted an additional 500 million Euro to Turkey within the framework of the so-called "EU-Turkey Deal". Over 6 billion Euro have so far been paid to Turkey by the EU since the 2016 deal, whereby EU leaders persuaded the country to support them in “protecting their borders” by forcibly preventing a further influx of refugees.
