About 1000 so-called economic refugees are protesting at the Greek-Macedonian border, following the decision by the authorities in Skopje not to allow other refugees besides those from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq to enter the country.

Protesters are mainly from other African and Asian countries such as Libya, Somalia, Morocco, Bangladesh, Iran and Pakistan, who were not allowed to enter the territory of Macedonia, with the argument that they do not come from countries in crisis.

Three days ago, authorities in Macedonia decided to select the entry of refugees and this has led to thousands of refugees being blocked on the border with Greece.
