Thousands march in Berlin demanding more German support to refugees in Greece

On September 20, thousands of protestors marched in Germany’s capital Berlin demanding the evacuation of Greek overcrowded migrant camps and against the creation of a new camp on the Aegean island of Lesbos. After the fire in the Moria camp on the island of Lesbos on Sept. 9, Germany agreed to take in 1,553 migrants stranded on Greek islands.   

The protestors demanded more measures from the German government and that the government not block independent state or municipal efforts to take in refugees themselves. 

The crowd marched through the capital to the landmark Victory Column carrying signs with slogans like “we have space” and “Seehofer, be a Christian” — a reference to Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.
