At the end of February, the Balkan nations to the north of Greece shut their borders to migrants as part of an E.U. deal to stop the refugee crisis. These measures worked. The flood of asylum seekers into Western Europe has slowed down drastically. As of April 2016 there were more then 10000 refugees (out of 50000 asylum seekers in the whole country) at Idomeni camp. on the Greek -Macedonia border. With the help of volunteer groups as well as MSF- food, sanitary facilities and medical care are provided to the refugees, most of whom do not want to leave for a state-run camps in other parts of Greece, still hoping to continue their journey north into Europe. Some kind of a daily life routine has been setting in, after two months of waiting in the same place.confrontation with the Greek police is happening on a very low scale, but tensions between groups of refugees from different nationalities is on the rise. How long can these people hold on either before they will be deported/break down/ or get the official approval to move northward...the coming months will be crucial for their future and the future of Europe as a whole.
