This Sunday evening, Slovenian users of social networks began sharing photos portraying a group of armed men in a military formation in the area of Maribor Pohorje. The faces of men on the photographs are hidden behind black masks, and many are seen holding axes and various firearms.

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…

Transnational mobilization for the rights of migrants and against fascism.
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.
