RLS info session for Mazi residents
RLS legal coordinator and caseworker Lucy Alper conducted two info sessions with Mazi residents about asylum procedure in Greece and Europe as well as rights, entitlements and family reunification.
Mazi is a housing project that exists to provide safe, stable housing for young solo displaced men who are homeless in Athens. These men are otherwise at the bottom of the list for housing and basic services.
Quote from a resident who had been undocumented in Greece for 2 years, unable to claim asylum:
"the session was so informative - it was the first time I understood why they took my fingerprints and what had happened to me"
