The wind was said to be 100 km. The noise in the tent was like a continuous roar and the ropes beating loudly on the walls. The wind so strong that my translator and I were knocked over a table and held there by the weight of the tent wall blowing in. The rain was torrential. [...]

From CHOOSE LOVE NGO: We cannot allow the truth about conditions in Greek camps to be hidden.
