Europe's Borders

Over one million refugees made their way to the continent last year, with most of them headed for Germany and Scandinavian countries.

According to data from the UNHCR, more than 130,000 migrants have already reached European shores this year, and 410 people have died while attempting the crossing of the Aegean Sea. In January, 66,233 people arrived to Europe by sea, compared with just 5,550 in January 2015.

The huge number of people travelling across the continent has led to growing tensions between EU leaders, rising support for populist parties, and the slow erosion of Europe's passport-free travel zone. Border controls and border fences have been implemented all over the continent, as states take individual measures to stop the flow of refugees.

根据难民专员办事处的数据,今年有13万移民已经到达欧洲海岸,410人在试图越过爱琴海时死亡。 1月,有66 223人通过海运抵达欧洲,而2015年1月仅为5,550人。

跨越大陆的大量人口导致欧盟领导人之间的紧张关系日益加剧,对民粹主义政党的支持日益增加, 以及欧洲无护照旅行区的缓慢侵蚀。 边界管制和边境围栏已在全非洲各地实施,因为各国采取个别措施制止难民流动。
Plus d'un million de réfugiés se sont rendus sur le continent l'année dernière, la plupart d'entre eux se dirigeant vers l'Allemagne et les pays scandinaves.

Selon les données du HCR, plus de 130 000 migrants ont déjà atteint les rivages européens cette année, et 410 personnes sont mortes en tentant de traverser la mer Égée. En janvier, 66 233 personnes sont arrivées en Europe par mer, contre seulement 5 550 en janvier 2015.

Le grand nombre de personnes qui voyagent à travers le continent a entraîné des tensions croissantes entre les dirigeants de l'UE, un soutien croissant pour les partis populistes et la lente érosion de la zone européenne sans passeport. Des contrôles aux frontières et des barrières frontalières ont été mis en place sur tout le continent, les États prenant des mesures individuelles pour arrêter le flux de réfugiés.

Update 2021 - October

Not the first and it won't be the last. High profile murders might draw attention to the underlying problem, but even now the main stream news scuttle off to write reports to colour the events in a veneer of deluded ideology.

A minute's silence

If we take one minute to think about this, we will surely reach a common sense conclusion.
