Workers began to block the railway track leading from Greece into Macedonia. The goal of the protests is to force local authorities to open the borders and allow the refugees to pass on the earth from neighbouring States and further West. In the border areas had already accumulated about 1.3 thousand people.
The migrants began a sort of campaign of civil disobedience against the Greek authorities come from States in the Middle East have blocked the railway track that lead to Macedonia from Greece. Therefore they want to achieve from the authorities permission to leave the area of power and move further West. While the Greek government allowed the passage of only migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.
The government's decision was justified by the fact that immigrants from other countries in North Africa and the Middle East are considered "financial migrants". Therefore, they closed the passage on the so-called "Balkan corridor" through which the powers of Western Europe are refugees from countries affected by war, tells RIA Novosti.
