Guest Info

Petros Constantinou is the coordinator for KEEFRA, an organisation dedicated to supporting and assisting thousands of refugees in Greek camps. Moreover, KEEFRA actively campaigns against racism and neo-Nazis in Greece. 

In response to the rise of the fascist party ‘Golden Dawn’ and its presence in the Greek Parliament, KEEFRA effectively mobilised the Greek people to protest against their actions. Through their determined efforts, KEEFRA successfully pursued legal action against the Golden Dawn party, leading to its closure. While their accomplishments have been significant, KEEFRA’s primary focus remains to aid the refugees in Greece, who continue to endure dire living conditions.
