Cyprus is a step for Syrian refugees. The country does not offer better reception, acceptance and integration conditions for refugees than Greece. They do therefore not apply for asylum, not to be returned under the Dublin III European regulation if they then seek asylum in another country.
The authorities had opened a camp for Syrian refugees, they now want to close, leaving them without solution. The mobilization gets organized on the part of exiles and associations that support them.
