For decades families in Greece were organizing camping expeditions to the sea, building simple shelters. Over the years some of these ephemeral encampments were transformed to permanent settlements.
In 1999 small allotments were distributed to campers by the local mayor, at the north of Greece. The plots, situated in a narrow strip of land between the sea and the lake of a frigile & protected wetland,were occupied by Muslim & Christian families seeking a much missing nature connection. A net of false legality was created, while now they are ordered to leave as the land belongs to the state.
