Europe's Grecian wall of shame is completed

category greece / turkey / cyprus | migration / racism | news report author Wednesday December 19, 2012 04:56author by Costas Avramidis - personal capacity Report this post to the editors

Europe's wall of shame has been completed in Greece's northeast ground border with Turkey.

The wall is four-metre-high and is blocking a 10.365 meters-long strip of land from army guarding post of Kastanies down south to river Evros. The name of the company constructed the wall on behalf of the Greek state is DAGRES A.T.E ( ΔΑΓΡΕΣ Α.Τ.Ε).
The construction of the wall has been partially funded by the EU. The rest of the border between the two countries is formed by the Evros river that is impassible during the winter/spring months.Additional 'protection' to Europe's Grecian borders is provided by a few good unstable* mine fields spread alongside the borderline. Every year dozens of people try to cross into Europe via Greece loose their lives, drowned in the river or tore apart into pieces by mines.
130,000 immigrants entered Greece via the land crossing in 2011 according to the Greek government.

* the flooding of the land by the seasonal burst of the banks of river Evros, moves the mines out of their original position, sometimes even outside the designated lines of the bar wired minefields.
