- SERBIA/CROATIA/SLOVENIA/MACEDONIA 20/11/2015 Friday 23:30 evening
- GENERAL: 4500 refugees crossed the border in Idomeni today. ONLY SYRIANS, IRAQIS AND AFGHANIS ARE NOW BEING ALLOWED ON THE BALKAN ROUTE! Others (Cca 10%-15% according to the latest November numbers from UNHCR) are being held. This separation starts in Idomeni and continues to be applied up to Slovenia. Read more about the situation in joint statement by UNHCR, IOM and UNICEF: http://www.unhcr.org/564ee87b6.html
- Follow http://www.refugeemap.com for detailed info (but be careful about the last updated date, compare info with this update).
- PREŠEVO - Presevo and Miratovac almost empty, serbian police is letting only small groups of people cross the border from Macedonia. Serbian police very strict and no discussions. Conditions in Tabanovce very tough, camp for only 300-500 ppl, UNHCR not letting volunteers help. Our guys are trying to find a way to help in Macedonia (fake "official organization" cards, we will know more in the evening). Obviously Serbians decided to move the problem more south to FYROM. Very cold even during the day.
- Boots, socks, jackets, blankets needed. Financial help needed to arrange the food for refugees. Good amount of volunteers outside the camp.
- Contact UVP - United Volunteers of Preševo: Jessica Collins - Tel. +381 62 1499 561.

Refugees stay just half an hour at the train station, buses are stopped earlier (on highway close to Adaševci) and refugees wait in the bus (6 - 14 hours) until the next train is ready. Serbian side has got capacity up to 1500 people in highway, Sid train station and Principovac in case the trains are not able to transport all refugees. Czech volunteer team helps in Adaševci in two shifts (16-24h, 0-8h), we give information, hand out water and some basic clothes too. Situation is stable there, almost empty tonight.

- OTHER NEWS
- - Greece/Macedonia: Border crossing for Afghans, Syrians, and Iraqis with ID documents continues at a slow pace from Idomeni in Greece to Gevgelija in Macedonia. Riot police from both countries maintain a presence after protests from Iranian and some other refugees who were not allowed to cross this morning. In Gevgelija processing remains relatively smooth with an estimated 3,000 refugees on site early this afternoon. Contrary to yesterday’s media coverage, there are no current reports of refugees stranded without shelter along the border. Independent volunteers NOT able to help, accreditation with official NGO necessary!
- - November average for Greece is 5 200 people per day.
- - If you have enough time and sources to travel to Lesvos, Greece (or other islands) do that. Volunteers are saving lives from sea and helping out in the camps - Moria and Kara Tepe. Read this volunteering guide to Lesvos: http://bit.ly/lesvolunteer.
