Milutin Marković – On the last stronghold

 

Šid in northern Serbia is the last town before the Croatian border, where refugees make a stop on their way to try make it to the EU. In the abandoned factory Grafosrem, they spend time in a temporary shelter, where they sleep, cook and wait for their smugglers to take them further. With frequent and sometimes violent pushbacks from Croatia, the factory has been a busy place in the last couple of months. Besides factory a lot of them sleep in the “Jungle”(fields and bushes in the area).

Šid , grad na severu Srbije na granici sa Hrvatskom, mesto je gde izbeglice traže svoj poslednji predah pred pokušaj prelaska granice. U napuštenoj fabrici Grafosrem, provode vreme u improvizovanom skloništu, gde spavaju, kuvaju i čekaju krijumčare da ih prebace dalje. Obzirom na sve težu mogućnost prelaska granice, uz često nasilno ponašanje hrvatske policije, u tvornici je nastala prilična gužva među imigrantima, među kojima mnogi spavaju u tzv “Džungli” – grmlju i šipražju koje se nalazi tik pored tvornice.
