Muslim invaders on the border between Greece and Macedonia have rioted, lit fires, charged at police and attempted to block a railway during a protest demanding open borders. Police responded with tear gas.
Breitbart (h/t Emma) The camp on the border village of Idomeni has become home to around 10,000 migrants, more than four months after the Balkans route into northern Europe was shut off. Greek officials have recently announced their plans to evict the camp.
Migrants have repeatedly blocked the nearby train tracks in protest, sometimes using their own young children to block the tracks. As they moved to do the same again last night the police stepped in. Pitch battles ensued.
According to Elboletin, the police also had to stop left wing “volunteers from accessing certain areas of the field.
A leftist bleeding heart pro-migrant volunteer from the Fire in Action group told Elboletin: “The migrants said they intended to leave objects on the train tracks… Migrants tried to negotiate with police to avoid eviction, although the police continued to stress their intention to carry out the removal.”
The migrants in Ideomeni have repeatedly resisted being sent to the new official camps, which have electricity and running water, as they do not want to be registered and plan to illegally break across the border.
In late March, Ankara and Brussels agreed to close the so-called Balkan route, along which during the past year over one million migrants traveled through Greece and Macedonia to the other European Union (EU) member states in the north.
According to the agreement, in exchange for financial and political favours, Turkey pledged to take back all the “irregular” migrants who cross into the EU from its borders.
Those who have made it to the new camps proceeded to riot and burn them down (below).
