"In the harbour cities of Patras and Igoumenitsa, there are hundreds of migrants who were deliberately denied the slightest assistance (housing, food, medical care, freedom of movement) - even those that have already been legally recognised as refugees. Most of them have fled the conflict zones of Darfur, Afghanistan and Syria, and when they saw the squalid living conditions in Greece, they tried to continue their journey to other European Union countries, risking their lives once again. Trucks transporting goods between Italy and Greece are the only way to access the ferry linking the two sides. The constantly increasing military/police presence in Greek ports forces migrants and asylum seekers to improvise the most unlikely and risky manoeuvres in order to hide in the basis of a lorry. These people have left their countries thinking that Greece would be a short stop, a station to their final destination, Italy, France or Germany. Six years have gone by and yet they still remain in these cities, crammed all together in an abandoned factory next to the port, or outside in the open forest. During the day they confine themselves like prisoners inside the factory. In the afternoon, when the ferries depart to Italy, they come out of their hideouts. Some of these boys have successfully escaped Greece. Others were captured and arrested by the Greek police. Many were deported back to Greece from the Italian authorities. A few have lost their lives, while trying to hide under the trucks. The youngest of these boys living in the abandoned factory is 12 years old. Most of the migrants are between 16 and 20. They collect their food from the garbage. Having no job, they usually spend many hours playing cards, or talking to each other around a warm fire. Police are their biggest nightmare. Many migrants blame the authorities for physical and psychological violence. During police raids, the migrants hide inside dark tunnels. When you ask about their dreams, they cannot hide their feelings and aspirations. They still want to find that very truck which eventually would take them to the West."
