As predicted, ME migrants riot at Greek border as stricter controls are placed on European borders

Invasion of Europe news……

We told you (here, pressure cooker!) on Saturday that the flow out of Greece was effectively halted when many countries north of Greece closed their borders to the invaders wanting to get to Germany.

Today there were riots at the Greece/Macedonia border.  Al Jazeera says this:

A riot broke out as hundreds of desperate refugees stranded at the Greek-Macedonia border smashed down a gate guarded by security forces on Monday.

The razor-wire barrier was ripped open and border guards fired tear gas in response.

Angry crowds shouted and pushed towards the barrier. Several men used a large steel post to ram the gate while trying to pry it open.

Nearly 8,000 refugees are in limbo at the overcrowded border camp – with a capacity of 2,000 – at the village of Idomeni, according to Greek officials.

The Idomeni camp is rapidly turning into the main focal point in the largest migration crisis in Europe since World War II.

It was set up to shelter refugees as they wait for passage to Macedonia, which has greatly reduced the number of people allowed to pass in recent days.

For readers who might not have been paying attention until just now and are wondering how and why so many are in Greece, look to Turkey for allowing them to launch from Turkish shores.

Go to the interactive map that tracks the movement in to Greece and northward and see how many arrived in Greece in this last week alone and how few moved north!
