Blond haired activists with piercings and dreadlocks allegedly led three migrants to their deaths yesterday, distributing inaccurate maps and corralling them across a river. Hundred of migrants have been returned to Greece, and the activists walked free with €250 fines.
Around twelve to fourteen thousand mostly Middle Eastern migrants have been camped for nearly three weeks near the village of Idomeni, ever since the border between Macedonia and Greece was closed off.

Fredericton’s mayor is asking Ottawa to delay the next wave of Syrian refugees expected to arrive in the city.
At Monday night’s regular council meeting, Brad Woodside said 276 newcomers have arrived in Fredericton in recent weeks.
The city is expecting another 200 or so, but Woodside said the city simply can’t absorb anymore right now.
“200 more, at this point in time, would overwhelm the community and the resources we have available to them,” Woodside said.
(and so reality begins to sink in even in Trudopia)
The influx of anti-Israel far Left supporters has worsened the bias of the PLP against Jewish people
Does Labour, my party, have a problem with anti-Semitism? When someone like Gerry Downing, a member of the Socialist Fight organization, can demand that the “Jewish problem” be addressed, and then apply and gain party membership (albeit briefly), it’s clear that it might. And when Vicky Kirby, Labour’s former candidate in Woking, who was suspended after tweeting “What do you know abt Jews? They’ve got big noses and support Spurs. lol” gets readmitted to the party, one feels still greater unease.

7. Brits not amused by Obama’s EU nose-shoving
China and Russia are preparing to attack and disrupt critical U.S. military and intelligence satellites in a future conflict with crippling space missile, maneuvering satellite, and laser attacks, senior Pentagon and intelligence officials told Congress on Tuesday.
Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of the Air Force Space Command, said the threat to U.S. space systems has reached a new tipping point, and after years of post-Cold War stagnation foreign states are focused on curbing U.S. space systems.
“Adversaries are developing kinetic, directed-energy, and cyber tools to deny, degrade, and destroy our space capabilities,” Hyten said in a prepared statement for a hearing of the House Armed Service strategic forces subcommittee.
“They understand our reliance on space, and they understand the competitive advantage we derive from space. The need for vigilance has never been greater,” the four-star general said.
