Hotel City Plaza

The Hotel City Plaza, an occupied hotel located in the heart of Greece, was seized in April 2016 by a group of Athenian activists and citizens who were looking to answer to the humanitarian crisis that was hardly hitting Greece. Since then, this self-managed space has been the home for 400 refugees and migrants who are waiting for they asylum applications to be solved. They belong to the more than 54,000 refugees and migrants that were trapped in Greece in May 2016.

Here, Fatima, a Kurdish woman from Syria, waits with two of her sons to be able to continue their journey to Germany. After a long struggle for her asylum papers, and with the only desire to see all her children together once again, Fatima passed away in Greece in May 2017. RIP.
