Migrants Protest – level 2

18-09-2020 15:00

On September 9th, a refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos burned down. Around 13,000 people had to leave their temporary homes.

Some people started to build a new camp nearby. They were mostly people from Afghanistan, and there were many children among them. Most people, however, did not want a new camp. They wanted to leave Greece and travel to mainland Europe. These people wandered around the place, and they were angry at the situation.

Last week, some migrants started to protest. Greek officials started to build a new camp; however, migrants do not want to move in.

Difficult words: refugee camp (a place where live people who left their country and they want to live somewhere else), temporary (something that lasts only for some time), mainland (the main part of a country or continent that does not include the islands around it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
