Refugee protest in Slovenia

19. September, 2015

At the border at Rigonce (Slovenia/Croatia) there where first bigger waves of refugees. At 17.30 and there were around 100, but 3 hours later, there were at least 500-600 at that small border. At the Bregana border crossing there were already 800 people and up to today there are around 2000-3000.  They are already transported to Slovenian asylum centers, camps etc.

Slovenian side of the border was packed with 100-150 robocops and they didn’t let anyone through. Slovenian government gave a clear massage that it closed it’s borders, even before people came. They also used teargas once and their batons.  Currently they are letting inside families, mostly women and children, and are separating men from them. People are tired, but extremly filled with positive energy, they showed that struggle for freedom is unstoppable.

Activists are really organized, but situation changes from hour to hour.

Al Jazeera News 20/21 Sep 2015 – Refugees stuck at Croatia’s border with Slovenia

Refugees at Croatia – Serbia border

Croatia ‘forcing’ Hungary to take in refugees

From No Border Serbia Blog

19 September, 2015

The situation is changing rapidly, it s very chaotic and hard to follow what is going on. After the brutal police attack at Horgos almost all people left to Croatia. approx. only 100 people stayed there waiting for a chance to cross. There are 21 persons  in prison in Hungary they were arrested at Horgoš when they broke through the gate.

We dont know exactly the accusations but probably they ‘ll try to criminalize them on the worst way.  If anybody can do something, they need international support!

Since Croatia  also closed it’s borders with Serbia yesterday, people  are entering  to croatia in all sides through fields.
Right now there are 5000 people in Tovarnik.

Most of the people (coming from Macedonia and Belgrade) are going to Šid now, we heard that many people are around  Bezdan too (west -north serbia). So these are the  the new hotspots on the serbo croatian border. During the last night many people entered Hungary from Croatia. Migrants who entered HUngary were transferred to Szentgotthard open camp on the border with Austria, and some of them are already in Austria.

It seems like the authorities try just to  registered people, and  not really taking their fingerprints. There was a strong resistance to break the border on Bregana  ( on the
highway border crossing place from Croatia to Slovenia ) and Harmica (the  train track goes there) and probably on other places too. The police was using teargas and dogs to stop people. Today they started to let families and vulnerable groups inside Slovenia. It goes very slowly.

For many people it s the third border they should break in so they are exhausted, tired, many people are sick and injured, there is no water, it s very hot but the nights are cold, no medical aid, nothing.

International solidarity is needed ASAP!
please share these infos our capacity is very weak we have some activists on the terrain but they
have no internet no laptops even charging phones in the middle of nowhere is difficult…we will try to publish more details soon.

refugee protest

Refugee protest on Hungarian Serbian border

After the brutal police attack on the Hungarian border (more details soon),  most of the migrants yesterday from Horgoš (SRB-HUN border) continued towards Croatia (mostly Šid and Bezdan border crossing points). All kind of support is needed now on the borders! People are exhausted, they were struggling for their right to move, resisting repression days and nights without a rest. Now they have to face the same difficulties on the croatian border as well. Croatia closed today 7 border crossing places ( Tovarnik, Ilok, Ilok 2, Principovac, Principovac 2, Batina and  Erdut). People try to enter in smaller groups bypassing the blockades. We call all people in the border zones to show solidarity and support people.

Till today morning around 14 000 people entered Croatia.The authorities  transport people to refugee camps, but people want to continue and move on! Some groups already arrived to the slovenian border, they face repression from the slovenian border police.

Spread the idea  of DIRECT SOLIDARITY with the people who are traveling/struggling. Slovenia is trying to close it ‘s borders. Right now it seems to be closed but mass protests on the borders can create pressure! We should not forget that the people  on the move now are very powerful, many of them survived the  repression/violence in fascist Hungary and today in Tovarnik where for some time police held people in a guarded are to hold them back (they were waiting for 14 hours to continue) and the crowd of children, men and women was just destroyed part of the fence or jumped the police chains after a while as a mass protest.

Updates from Slovenia

Latest info from activists who are on the cro- slo border  ( 18.09.  1 AM):

“They stopped international train to Munich and send back to croatia around 100 people,  and others are send further in slovenia but we dont know where. all train traffic is stopped until morning.”

“Train from zagreb to austria with approx 150 migrants is held in train station Dobova from 19:00.A lot of police (riot police and dogs)is here,we are not allowed to talk with migrants. situation is calm, we are all waiting.”
“Please tell everybody, especially to refugees to stick together, to go the border in big big numbers, let us organize a camp on the border, bigger one. Let ua make pressure to open the borders! Small groups are taken by police and deported or detained in closed detention center!

150 people that managed to enter Slovenia were brought to the detention  center in Postojna. The international trains serbia- croatia-slovenia are stopped. The slovenian police is present in Dubove with many special police forces and dogs. In the village „Harmica“ at the croatian side of the border small groups of migrants are arriving. Now there around 200 but it is hard to guess, because they are not all in one place. People started to go towords and along the river (Sutla river)  that marks the border of cro/slov there, up north. Croatian police there is only  a few and very calm. Slovenian side seems to be more of  a problem for the people.

“There will be a protest today at 18h on the Cro-Slo border (Rigonce crossing place), where people were stopped by force. Let’s make pressure  from both sides of the border! “
