Fylakio detention camp overcrowed. Children and women show bread and hands by the small windows of the detention camp.
Orestiada, Nea Vyssa, Fylakio, Soufli detention camps in northern Greece. Illegal immigration on the greek border. Thousands os immigrants from Africa and Asia had crossed illegally the border between Greece and Turkey.
Greece is the gateway to enter in the European Union for immigrants from Asia and Africa.
The situation in the detention camps is inhuman and with total lack of dignity. Immigrants don't have the minimum services to be detained. Hundreds of persons are mixed in old police stations, most of them in insanity health conditions, and police are doing their best, but government authorities don't help too much. Those photographs are a part of the documentary project Fortress Europe started in 2003.
