After our departure on Sunday evening from Berlin, we arrived Monday 13: 00 game box on the Austrian Slovenian border. Since last week are not shut the ferries in Greece due to a strike and therefore, refugees did not come away from the Greek Islands, there were only a few refugees there. The situation was calm and clear and the supporter * indoor spot meant that no more aid would be needed. For this reason, we decided to go further to Dobova on the Slovenian Croatian border.
Dobova is currently a major transition point for refugees from Croatia. With trains, they arrive, are taken by the police and the military in reception and then driven by bus to a camp at Brezice registration according to police. Where exactly this camp is located, we're trying just to get out. Then they are returned back to the station, to travel further to Austria. The refugees even get no information about where they currently are or where they are taken. For this reason, we wanted to distribute info sheet that answer these questions in Arabic and Farsi and provide a number of other tips and hints. The police however stopped this action and threw away the note. As she forbade any kind photo shoots.
Two single women from Hungary operate a support station with alternating help directly at the train station. We made them available two of our tents, helped build and support their support structures. This includes providing food parcels and clothing bussom. Here, pictures are just away or in a tent.
Meanwhile, government agencies admit hardly support without prior registration of volunteers on an official NGO. This procedure is cumbersome and lengthy and complicated only volunteering. Two months ago the European States in their support completely held back, without the self-organized volunteerism, there had been none in many places. Now they greatly complicate matters for this commitment and often completely to make impossible to try.
We consider whether a part of our tour here in Dobova remains and helps with the construction of a new camp here and goes a different direction Croatian-Serbian border. The first of 40,000 refugees get there now, which last week were stuck in Greece and proceed now with a time on the Balkan route.
