Glad to see that the UNHCR have finally decided to send prefabricated housing units to the border to give shelter to the people who have been camped out in fields. What took them so long? (Reason follows) While it is true that the remit of the UN refugee agency differs in Hungary from its usual mandate in that their job is to monitor and report on the situation and urge the authorities to take action, when it is so blatantly obvious that the authorities are so lacking, it’s high time they stepped up! Update: it seems the United Nation’s Refugee Agency had to wait for weeks for “permission” to send tents. Neither relief agencies nor human rights advocates may enter the premises of the registration centers.
Rözske, Hungary: Refugees fleeing persecution are thrown food like circus animals without a shred of dignity. In some ways this is even more upsetting than the incident of the camerawoman tripping over the man and child as hers was the action of an individual cold blooded hater, while this is institutionalised cruelty. Yes, psychological cruelty. I can hardly believe my eyes but this is no Hollywood set.
