Brutal violence by Croatian police at the Croatian-Bosnian border

Our correspondent Riot Turtle from Enough is Enough and Subversion 1312 was in a camp near the Bosnia/Croatia border, with Cars of Hope and SOS Team Kladuša building facilities for the camp and helping in whatever way they can. He is also doing interviews and reports and sent me this interview with an Iranian mother, who with her family is trying to reach Europe.

A few thoughts after #Bosnia: EU states escalate war against refugees and migrants

Many EU states are escalating the war against refugees and migrants. Border closures and (state) violence against refugees and migrants (for me personally there is actually no difference between migrants and refugees, people are people) are “normal” in many EU states. A refugee child shot and killed by Belgium cops last month. Two refugee kids shot and severly injured by cops in Croatia last week are only the tip of the Iceberg. The new Italian government with the fascist Lega Nord will make things even worse. What a difference with Bosnia, although the Bosnian state doesn’t do much for migrants and refugees, many many local people do what they can to support people that came to Bosnia. A few thoughts…

Working on the Balkan Route: “I Can Still Here Croatian Cops Screaming ‘One line!’ in #Opatovac”

States and borders are dividing people. Dividing in them and us. When do we finally get rid of these tools of suffering and oppression? On December 17 I will travel to Lesvos, Greece, again and will stay there for almost a month. It seems a long time ago that I started working with refugees on the Balkan route, but actually its not. A little more than two years have past after I drove to Slovenia. A good friend wrote me in September 2015 about the situation on the Croatian/Slovenian border and asked me to come and support. A lot has happened since then…

Video by the author of this aricle, Riot Turtle, about the next campaign on Lesvos.
