UN says Europe is “on cusp of self-induced crisis”



Europe is “on the cusp of a largely self-induced humanitarian crisis” because of a rapid build-up of migrants on Greece’s borders, the UN has warned.

“The crowded conditions are leading to shortages of food, shelter, water and sanitation,” UN refugee agency (UNHCR) spokesman Adrian Edwards said.

Close to 24,000 migrants in Greece are in need of housing.

Some 8,500 of them are stuck in worsening conditions on the Greece-Macedonia border.

The crossing at Idomeni is now closed following protests by migrants desperate to continue their journey to Western European countries. Some migrants have been stranded at the overburdened camp for more than a week.

“At least 1,500 had spent the previous night in the open,” Mr Edwards said on Tuesday.

“Tensions have been building, fuelling violence and playing into the hands of people smugglers,” the spokesman added.

The site was beset by heavy rain overnight, posing serious health risks to a minority with no shelter.

BBC reporters saw hundreds more migrants heading across fields towards Idomeni on Tuesday.

Hundreds of small tents have been erected in the fields around the official camp, which can take no more people. Families of 10 are sharing four-man tents, Caroline Haga, an emergency co-ordinator for the International Red Cross (ICRC), told the BBC.

Ms Haga, who left the camp on Monday night but is due to return on Tuesday, said the medical charity had serious concerns for the health of the migrants as the weather deteriorated.

“Many people here are soaking wet and cold from having to sleep out in the open, it still dips below 10 here during the night,” she said.

“We are already seeing a lot of flu cases, especially among children, so imagine if they have to sleep outside in the wet again. It could turn into a very serious health problem.”


back to greece we go again..

schengen is gone..they dont have to announce its demise..its already happened..

“Tensions have been building, fuelling violence and playing into the hands of people smugglers,” the spokesman added.”

“people smugglers”..i thought these were refugees..not migrants paying somebody to get them somewhere else?

  1. breedlove shilling hard..


    Russia and Syria are deliberately using migration as an aggressive strategy towards Europe, the senior Nato commander in Europe has said.
    US Gen Philip Breedlove said they were “weaponising” migration to destabilise and undermine the continent.
    He also suggested that criminals, extremists and fighters were hiding in the flow of migrants.
    Migrants are continuing to accumulate in Greece, after Macedonia stopped allowing more than a trickle through.

  2. Tusk in Greece: “Do not come to Europe. Do not believe the smugglers. Do not risk your lives and your money.”

  3. “Ivanov: We will not allow the creation of refugee camps”

  4. “Airports warn of costly terminal redesigns if Schengen falls”


  5. “Attempts to unite Europe without Russia ended in tragedies – Lavrov”


  6. Founder of what became the European Union advocated the genocide of the white/European peoples via race-mixing and flooding Europe with non-white immigrants, and advocated supremacy of the jews and said jews should rule the world!!

    This half Japanese, probably half jewish mongrel worked with the Rothschilds, Warburgs, and other jewish powers-that-be to establish the European Union, including a plan to flood the European continent with non-whites in order to perpetrate the attempted genocide of the white/European peoples via race-mixing.

    Richard Nikolaus Eijiro von Coudenhove-Kalergi was the son of a Austro-Hungarian diplomat and a Japanese mother. Though little known today, this man was close associates with the very most powerful men in the world of his time, and had a hand in shaping the world we know today in an enormous way.

    The driving philosophy and goal in Kalergi’s life was to transform Europe from a group of racially homogeneous nation states into an ethnically heterogeneous and politically and culturally united Europe, in which multiple races — including Asians, Africans, and other non-Europeans– mixed and lived in a “multicultural” Europe.

    Kalergi was the leading pioneer of what became the European Union, and was the founder and President for 49 years of the Paneuropean Union, from 1922 to 1971.
