'Unauthorised"

 
 

This ongoing reportage shows the living conditions of the unauthorized immigrants,traveling into Western-Europe via Greece.They live in inhuman conditions,sometimes for more than a year.

Many are being exploited by local businesses.Some 30 Senegalese went on a hunger-strike to claim a 7 month pay.

Daily they clash with the port-police trying to get in or under a truck to go to Italy.

Some die.

When I was traveling in my Camper from Greece to Holland I heard loud banging, 4 hours out of Venice,.  A immigrant from Algeria was hiding under my bus.  He got on in the port of Patra. If I would not have heard him he would have died from hypothermia for sure (it was 2 degrees).  He had no food/water for 3 days.

He almost died but he made it (so far).
