This woman refugee is trying to keep warm & dry in a camp near the village of Idomeni, Greece on the Macedonian border. The temperature today is 35 degrees Fahrenheit/2 degrees Celsius but it goes down to freezing at night in conditions of rain & snow.
About two thousand refugees tried to force their way across the Macedonian border by crossing a river but were forcibly turned back–soaking wet & freezing.
The next time you hear a European politician declare that ‘Europe is acommunity of values based on human sympathy, human rights, solidarity’, try not to retch. The next time you hear some racist bozo say Muslims don’t share our western values, thank your lucky stars that somewhere in the world barbarism is not the vogue & civilization still exists. Otherwise western civilization may be cooked.
Immigration is a human right. Open the borders.
