Free The Humanitarians

After graduating from Trinity, Seán Binder, travelled to Greece to be a humanitarian worker. He worked as a diver, helping refugees fleeing their country for safety.

Seán, from Castlegregory in West Kerry, was arrested in August along with three other volunteers. Police in Greece claimed they had partaken in human trafficking, by bringing emigrants to the Greek island of Lesbos.
