On the greek macedonian border in Idomeni thousands of refugees are stucked after different countries on the 'Balkanroute' are trying to close their boders. In the last days there were protests from refugees.
A call for solidarity from :: Solidarity with Eidomeni
Solidarity with the protesters and hunger strikers in Idomeni!
We are currently setting up an Infopoint for the people who are pushed back at the Greek-Macedonian Border in Idomeni.
In order to show the people who are protesting that their calls are being heard and their struggle is recognised in Europe and across the world, we are asking for individuals and groups to send statements of solidarity: small moments of support for those fighting for their freedom of movement. Declarations of unity to those struggling against Fortress Europe.
Send us whatever sign of support comes to your mind. We will be present in Idomeni with printer, megaphone and camera. We will print all statement, photographs and poems. Play the words of solidarity. And report back on what happens.
Let us prove that no fence, no wall and no military presence can seal borders. Let us be there to show support and solidarity to those in struggle. And if not in person, than in word, picture and sound. Send us your solidarity call to freemovementinfocar (at) riseup.net or post it here!
Walls fall only when those shaking their foundations are being heard!
On :: bordermonitoring.eu you will find a liveticker on the situation in Idomeni.
On Wednesday, 18th of November, Slovenia closed its borders for refugees who are not from Syria, Afghanistan or Iraq. Just a little later, Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia adopted this practice of segregation. There is little doubt, that this policy was pushed by the European Union as a starting point for slowing down or even stopping the flow over the Balkanroute. There is information, that three camps in Athens are in preparation (for refugees, who are not from the mentioned countries). Furthermore, there are indications, that Afghans should be segregated as well and that the Greek-Macedonian border will be closed completely for seven days soon. But all this is not officially confirmed yet. However, thousands of refugees are stuck in Eidomeni at the moment. First protests started. The :: Moving Europe Bus is at the spot and reports live.
