AYS Daily Digest 20/08/17: Austria taking new measures against refugees

“They sleep on the floor surrounded by shit, rats and trash but they smile. They wash with little water but they smile. They only have the food of the volunteers but they smile. The weather is very hot but they smile. They don’t have money but they smile. They flee from war and misery but they smile. Many have been trying to cross the border for a year but they smile. Exhausted, mad, desperate but smiling. In Serbia you learn how to smile at life and how the human being overcomes inhumanity.” Photo by Fotomovimento 15M.
