PIKPA is an self-organised shelter of exiles created by the inhabitants of the island of Lesbos, near the Turkish coast (https://goo.gl/maps/pAonT), in a place provided by the municipality.

Sometimes instrumentalised by the police, which makes it a spillway of the Moria detention center when full, PIKPA is nevertheless an open welcoming place, where the exiles may find that Europe is also a place of hospitality and solidarity.

The municipality has changed, and the new mayor wants to close PIKPA.
