Syrian refugees in Europe: The law is not on their side – 30/11/2014 – Al Jazeera
More than 150 Syrian war refugees, with old men, women and babies among them, have been protesting peacefully in front of the Greek parliament since November 19. Some of them have been on a hunger strike since Monday and several have been hospitalised. The refugees want adequate travel documents to leave Greece, a crisis-hit country that is believed to be in a too dramatic economic condition to allow them to fulfill their aspirations.Unfortunately, and despite the refugees’ best behaviour, Greek authorities cannot legally grant the protesters the right to travel freely to other European countries and look for work or apply for asylum there.
