A month in Athens

I'm going to Athens for a month in July, to help build a social centre for migrants in the city, to work with around 30 colleagues and comrades from the university, and to attend a conference on the 'refugee crisis' on the island of Lesvos. There are 15,000 migrants currently stuck in the Greek capital and there's no infrastructure to help them. The government's attitude is rapidly changing and many are being forced into improvised prison camps without even running water or electricity.

We're paying our own fares, but we need to raise some money for general operations while we're there. If you have any extra money lying around, please consider putting a bit into our crowdfunding. Any extra will be given as direct aid. Thanks!
