The Guardian: This refugee squat represents the best and worst of humanity

Molly’s new opinion piece in the Guardian:

Squats like City Plaza accomplish their work without a cent of government or NGO funding. In contrast, despite the $803m euros that since 2015 have flowed to the Greek government and NGOs to help them deal with the refugee crisis, refugees froze to death in camps last winter. Desperate, several more have tried to burn themselves alive. Even the best camps isolate refugees from cities, keeping them quarantined like carriers of a disease.

-Molly Crabapple, The Guardian, 6/2017
