28 migrant workers working at a strawberry production farm in Manolada, Greece were shot because they demanded to get paid, after six months of unpaid work. According to the press reports, there were no fatal injuries among the Bangladeshi workers.
New Manolada is in Peloponnese and according to Greek daily Kathimerini the farm owners have a history in abusing migrants. The incident occurred when approximately 200 workers demanded six months’ worth of unpaid wages from their employer. According to ilialive.gr the representatives of the farm owner informed the migrant workers that they are not going to get paid and they demanded from them to get back to work. Then the strawberry pickers became involved in an argument with three Greek supervisors. According to the police, one of the supervisors opened fire and injured 28 migrant workers.
