Press coverage

Mainstream media accounts of the Crete Detention center were minimal, and mostly reading as advertisements for how fantastic the conditions would be for those detained. We hoped our actions would change this. The articles below generally do little to address the issue of immigrant detention, the extent to which enforcement and the exploitation of cheap labor are the cornerstones of corporate globalization. They are also extremely selective in terms of the people and voices and perspectives they are representing: filtering out the bulk of our analysis, toning down our passion. Until we have the strength and capacity to produce our own accounts, our own narrative and media about the action, here is a selection of the press coverage:
