Eco-migrants will be left without a shelter?2013-04-22 15:28
Greeks who once have left Georgia are now returning back. But their houses are already occupied by eco-migrants from Adjara. What decision will the government make? Who has more rights to live in these houses: the current residents - the Ajarians find themselves here by fate, or past owners - the Greeks who voluntarily left their homes 20 years ago?
In the early 90s of the last century, when Georgia underwent most difficult times, a large number of Greeks left the country. Leaving the country, they said they left for their homeland - Greece. After a few years, due to the landslides in the mountainous part of Adjara local population was settled throughout the country. As a result of such re-settlement, lasting from 1997 to 2006, thousands of families settled in Tsalka just in the empty houses of the Greeks.
Today the situation has changed. In Greece has recently undergone a sharp decline in the economy. The crisis in the country has led to the fact that the Greeks once living in Georgia decided to return to the country. While there are a few of such Greeks, but if it takes massive nature, more than 2,000 families whose homes were occupied by eco-migrants from Adjara may be left without a roof over the head.
However, gamgebeli (manager) of Tsalka municipality believes that this problem is an entire fabrication, and the situation is not really so severe. He states that the Greeks who have left Georgia each year during Easter come to Tsalka, but after the holidays always go back. He said that only 3 families have returned to Georgia due to the economic crisis in Greece.
