Thessaloniki: In Focus

by #ReROOT site researchers Charalampos Tsavdaroglou & Zachos Valiantzas

Thessaloniki is an important hub in the movement of migrants from Turkey to the Balkans. The research focuses on two specific areas that concern homeless people on the move. The first is located at the western entrance of the city, in the area of abandoned train wagons which are occasionally used by undocumented people on the move. The second is located in the Ano Poli - Upper Town, which is surrounded by medieval walls next to which abandoned wall houses have been occupied by newly arrived migrants.

This video focuses on the first area, the abandoned train wagons at the western entrance to the city of Thessaloniki and is considered by the researchers to be a "commoning infrastructure" activated by various groups on the move.
