It was announced that the refugees who landed to the Akrotiri Base in fishing boats, and were then taken to the Dhekelia Base last week, protested about the living conditions.

The Greek newspaper Fileleftheros stated that the video which was published on the website of the Guardian newspaper in the UK, showed that the refugees revolted, a person tried to end his life, another person is bloodstained, two tents were set on fire. In the video it was shown one of the refugees saying that “we are human beings, not animals”, and a child is saying that the weather is cold and he had no shoes to wear.

The newspaper stated that the refugees are angry because they live in tents, and feel uncomfortable because of the black screens that cut their communication with the outside world. The newspaper also wrote that the British people do not allow the refugees to move freely.
