No boats today… just bodies.

Fancy crossing the Aegean in these, in this weather? Elections in Turkey today mean we’ve had some time out. No boats. Thank God. These winds are too strong for safe crossings.

At least 6 bodies washed up on the shores of Lesvos today. This is not normal. No one should have to walk along the beach, bracing themselves for the possibility of finding a body washed up by the sea. No one should have to make a crossing across the sea that puts their lives and those of their children in danger.
