Colonizers on Greek island of Lesbos: Do you have wifi?
Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2015
One more bit of news on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ (then I promise to move on!)…..
When I saw this news on twitter last night, I first thought it was a spoof.
It is from one of our nine major refugee resettlement contractors which has apparently got another gig from the US government and that is to work in Greece to process the colonizers in to Europe. The International Rescue Committee headed by British former Foreign Secretary David Miliband (whose salary you pay!) published a list of most-asked questions from the invaders—questions like ‘Where is the bus to Germany?’ ‘Why are you fingerprinting me?’ How long do I have to stay here?’ and so on.
But the question the IRC featured on its twitter feed was this question: ‘Do you have wifi?’ (and posted this photo):
Here is the IRC’s helpful answer (with a spin—they want to be sure you know it is all about letting loved ones know they are ok). But, don’t miss the part about using their phones to navigate through Europe!
Connecting with family is a top priority for newly arrived refugees who want their loved ones to know they are safe. IRC staff direct people to cafés and restaurants that provide WiFi free of charge. Because refugees use their mobile phones to navigate routes through Europe, we advise them on locations where they can purchase SIM cards and recharge their phones.
