These little kids at the Turkey-Greece border just a few days ago are what the refugee crises are all about. This photo was taken a few days ago when Greek border police supported by Frontex border patrol agents began forcibly & violently pushing refugees back into Turkey. Only a few hundred reportedly made it past the cordons of border patrol & Greece is already trying to round them up to deport them. These little kids, miserable & terrified, likely remain in Turkey, watching their fathers humiliated by being forced to strip, watching their mothers afraid for all of their lives.

We need to have internationally coordinated protests demanding the EU, US, & other countries open their borders for safe passage & asylum to all refugees with no exceptions, no exclusions, no arbitrary categories like economic or war refugees. No human being is alien to us.
