The current refugee crisis, with more and more people trying to cross the borders towards Germany, is pushing Bavarian police at the border with Austria to their limits. Surprisingly for the author, the German and Austrian sides use almost exactly the same words and arguments when talking about the cross-border cooperation in the transport and sheltering of refugees as Austria-Slovenia, Slovenia-Croatia, Croatia-Serbia, or Serbia-Hungary... did before them.
“The southern neighbours are not keeping their word as to the speed in which the refugees are being transported northwards,” a German police official told Welt.de a few hours ago. His southern colleagues told the same thing to their media only a few weeks or months ago.
Even in Germany some of the migrants and refugees will now probably have to spend the night in the open, at 9 degrees Celsius foggy weather (October 25). It seems that all transit countries and the destination country, Germany, are hoping for the winter to stop or at least slow down new refugees moving north. It (probably) won’t.
Below is a video from a time (only a month ago) when dominoes were played for refugees, not with them.
