In Croatia, the train to and from nowhere
Sometimes, a video with no commentary is enough to communicate the emotion, the desperation that surrounds a particular situation. When it comes to the migrant crisis that is flooding Europe with refugees from the Middle East, one simply needs to look at this video in Croatia today to see things are going from bad to worse.
A formidable police line was not enough to keep refugees from forcing their way onto a train. They didn’t know where it was going or whether it would go anywhere. They simply knew that there was a train heading in a direction away from the Syrian turmoil they were trying to escape and that was enough to cause the mad rush.
By the end, the police were able to regain some level of control once the train was completely full. Latecomers can be seen trying to make it through open windows just to get… somewhere.
