Refugees march to German Embassy, seeking reunification with families


Refugees who have been staging a hunger strike in Syntagma Square for the past week on Wednesday marched to the German Embassy, calling for their reunification with their families in Germany.

In a statement, the refugees called for the acceleration of the process for them to be sent to Germany, as part of a European Union relocation scheme for refugees, describing their demands as "self-evident."

Their appeals for reunification have been approved, the refugees said, noting that the law requires their transfer within six months.

"But they delay us for months, condemn us to uncertainty and keep us away from our loved ones," the statement said.
