“We don’t have enough food. We have no other clothes. We can’t
look after our hygiene,” said J, a 26 year-old Syrian stuck on the
Greece-Macedonian border in Idomeni for 10 days. As European
borders go up, refugees and migrants are being left stranded and
desperate.“There is no safe way to continue our journey. The
border is almost closed for us fleeing war,” said J. “I feel hopeless.
I just want to live normally again.” In February, Austria said it
would only accept a handful of asylum seekers and refugees a day,
setting off a domino effect of borders being closed to the vast
majority of those people fleeing war and poverty from the Middle
East, Asia and Africa. On 9 March, Slovenia and neighbouring
Croatia refused to allow the transit of most refugees through their
territory. Serbia and Macedonia say they will do the same.
