Clashes have broken out overnight on the Greek islands of Lesbos and Chios, where residents tried to prevent the arrival of riot police and excavating machines to be used to build migrant detention camps.
Officers fired tear gas when people tried to block equipment heading to new construction sites.
The regional governor's office has called a 24-hour strike, rejecting the government's plans to build the new camps to replace now overcrowded facilities where asylum-seekers live in dire conditions.
On Chios, hundreds gathered in a protest at the main square of the island's capital.
In addition to Lesbos and Chios, Greek authorities plan to construct closed detention facilities on Samos, Kos and Leros.
Dimitra Kalogeropoulou, Greek head of the International Rescue Committee, said the tensions should be no surprise, adding that overcrowding "is good for no one; local communities feel their islands have been transformed into giant prisons, while asylum seekers are forced to live in unsafe conditions".
"We want our islands back" is the motto of the protests, as well as: "The islands must stop being the camp of lost souls".
Greece remains the European Union's busiest entry point for refugees and migrants, with almost 4,000 making the winter crossing from Turkey to Greek islands this year through February 16, according to data from the United Nations refugee agency.
