VIDEO: Fed-Up Farmer Reaches Breaking Point With Migrant Tent City on His Land
While European leaders set a policy of open borders encouraging unchecked mass migration predominantly by Muslims from Syria and the Middle East, it is the local communities and residents who are hit with the realities of accommodating immigrants who have nowhere to live, nothing to eat, no money, no job prospects – and no interest in becoming part of the community or anything other than dependents.
Even those who are sympathetic to the plight of the refugees, at least some of whom are innocent victims of war, find themselves forced to take hard stands to protect their homes and businesses.
Now, after volunteering to make a few acres of his farm available for refugees, only to have it turned into a “tent city” nightmare, a Greek farmer has been forced to take action.
Lazarous Oulis’s family relies entirely upon the income generated from their farm in Idomeni, but he agreed to allow refugees to camp on a section of it after he was assured by various charitable organizations that they would assist him in clearly the land when it was time to plant in the spring.
When asked to take down the “tent city” so he could begin plowing, the Muslim refugees refused and the charities reneged on their promises, so Oulis took matters into his own hands, plowing the land anyway – driving his tractor over and through the tents and debris accumulated by the migrants.
The police forced him to stop, citing the danger to the “tent city” children, and one refugee complained, “Why does he have to plow while I am occupying the property?”
Oulis told police that even though he feels sorry for some of the migrants, his family depends on the farm. “I need to plow my field. Not somebody else’s field, mine! I have a business with 70-80 calves, I want to produce, feed them, because, financially, I can’t take survive this.”
