HCG drag boat back towards Turkey.

A boat carrying approximately 30 people, many of them children, in distress outside Lesvos north east. Greek coast guard once again are performing illegal pushbacks, on Europe’s outer border.

Greek coast guard allegedly destroyed the engin on the boat to stop it from reaching Lesvos, afterwards, as you can see in the video, they towed it towards the Turkish border, leaving them adrift, totally helpless.

There is no question that this practice is illegal, and that it’s happening every single day on Europe’s border. How can Europe watch this happened, and do nothing? It seems like Greece has been given a green light from the EU, to continue violating international laws and international human rights, because nothing is being done to stop this madness, are you ok with this?
