Abdullah from Somalia spent six months in a detention camp in Greece. "You are hungry all the time in there," he told Socialist Worker.

"At ten in the morning they give you milk that’s thin like water. Then there’s a really small meal at four and another at eight.

"If anyone brings in sugar they take it off you.

"You are only allowed out of your room for one hour of walking every day. There’s no hot water, soap or shampoo. When you get sick they don’t let you go to hospital."
