Greece: Refugees calling for open borders block E75 road

Refugees blocked the E75 road close to Polykastro, at a petrol station whose facilities have been used as refugee camp for several months, Saturday.
Some of the refugees chanted their slogans in the middle of the road to block the traffic of trucks and other vehicles, while other chose to sleep on the pavement. A group of volunteers joined them in their protest, chanting and playing music to cheer refugees up.
UNHCR and Doctor Without Borders personnel were deployed at the so-called 'EKO petrol station refugee camp.' The petrol station is 20km (12mi) from the Greek-Macedonian border.
According to recent figures released by the Greek Ministry of Immigration, there are at least 51,430 refugees stranded in Greece.
