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.

Cops Destroy Tents of Refugees & Migrants in Snowy #Paris

In the middle of  the preparations for our stay on Lesvos, Greece, we want to remind you that the Greek islands are not the only places in Europe where refugees are suffering the inhuman treatment by EU member states. People are suffering illegal pushbacks and police violence in many European states. Last night cops destroyed tents of migrants and refugees in Paris, France. The violent treatment of refugees and migrants is increasing across Europe.

#OverTheFortress Visiting a friend in a Deportation Camp in Nyírbátor in Hungary

In the beginning of march, we visited our friend Mohammed (for security reasons anonymous name) in a deportation Camp in Nyírbátor in Hungary. He is a refugee from Algeria and was crossing the serbian-hungarian border, when he was caught by the hungarian border police. They detained him in a closed camp, also called ‘Immigration Detention’ for six months. After six months, which is the maximum stay time, he was moved to the deportation camp.
