Dozens of refugee families who recently found themselves stranded in Athens, climbed the Acropolis hill on Monday morning, as part of an attempt to raise awareness about the refugee crisis in light of Europe Day. The visit was organised by the Greek Ministry of Culture, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Flux Laboratory Cultural Foundation.

Here are some photos from that visit.
