Water cannons as welcome!

At the Hungary’s border with Serbia

“The water was dirty and barely drinkable. We needed clean water for the baby and the other children but police said to use the dirty water,”
– a man held with his wife and baby in Roszke, Hungary

This picture remember me the Kosovo wear while I worked as journalist at Radio France International at Paris. After being neutral as it asked to all professional journalist, while one is preparing and presenting the news, I was crying all the tears of the world when I returned back home and my three years old son called me ” Mom” with the same language as the Kosovar kids I had heard crying this blast word, in the interminable lines walking to Macedonia. Do not forget this suffering, it was to hard for all of us. This happened only only 16 years ago to our people. Remember and show the world that we do not forget!

The Human Right Watch wrote me today :

” Refugees fleeing violence and persecution in their home countries have been greeted by Hungarian riot police with tear gas, pepper spray, and water cannons as they seek refuge in Europe. This comes only days after Human Rights Watch reported abysmal conditions in migrant detention centers along Hungary’s border with Serbia.

This is unacceptable, and it must stop now.

Donate to Human Rights Watch today.

Migrants and asylum-seekers are being held in filthy, overcrowded conditions with inadequate access to food, clean water, and medical care.

The mothers of two newborn babies at the camp – both less than one month old – said that the infants had high fevers and were vomiting. They received no medical assistance.

European authorities have an obligation to ensure that refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers be treated humanely and that their rights are respected.

Human Rights Watch has researchers on the ground right now along the same path taken by asylum seekers – amplifying their voices and documenting abuses. Our advocates are speaking to global leaders and applying pressure on governments to remove barriers to safe passage for these people in crisis.

Stand with us as we help to protect the lives of all those who are desperate to find a safe place to call home.”

This happened to Albanian people only only 16 years ago.  Albanians whenever you are, remember and show your solidarity to today refugees and tell the world that we have a national consciousness and do not forget the ethnic cleaning of our people!
