On the 30th of October and 2nd of November 2017 the Hungarian states’ trial against Ahmed H. went into the next round of seemingly absurd and endless rounds. Ahmed’s case is now back at the first court level, after the second instance referred it back to the first level for lack of consideration of contradictions in the evidence.
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…

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.

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.
