Behold EU refugee policy! And weep. But don’t spend too much time with that since this must be actively & politically opposed. This parent is carrying his/her suffering child–who is not light & clothed in heavy winter garb–through a frozen field in Serbia after crossing the border from Macedonia. What kind of criminality is this that European countries can send bombers to Syria & Iraq but can’t come up with buses & special trains to transport refugees with children, elderly, disabled, infirm in the middle of a bitter winter?
If this is the best neoliberalism, the barbaric phase of capitalism, can do, it ain’t good enough. And it’s time to rethink the system we live under.
Immigration is a human right. Open the damn borders.
