Thousands Demonstrate on Kos Against Refugee Hotspot, Clash with Police (video)

kos.14.2.7On Sunday residents of the island of Kos in the Eastern Aegean organized a protest against the creation of an identification and registration centre for refugees and migrants who are entering the European Union through Greece.
Protesters are demanding that the government reconsiders its decision to build the so-called “hotspot” in the area of Pyli, where work is already underway. Kos is among the several islands near the country’s borders with Turkey which has borne the brunt of the refugee crisis.
Earlier, riot police clashed with protesters and tear gas was fired to disperse the crowd, after a group of people tried to enter the construction site.
The municipal council on Kos is expected to convene on Thursday to decide the way in which it will conduct a local referendum on whether to construct the center. The decision to hold the referendum was taken earlier this week by the council.
