Syndicate: CRISIS in "Neutral Zone"

Dear Adele and friends--

Last night's call from R spoke exactly to your main point.  We 
didn't have a good connection but as far as I could understand, she feels 
that humanitarian aid is no longer the point.  There is aid on the 
Macedonian side of the border, but little is reaching into the Neutral 
Zone (except for individuals like herself bringing in bags of 
supplies.  She felt she saw only 7 westeners in the NeutralZone 
yesterday.  The danger now exists in the miles-long line of refugees 
still on the Serbian side of the border.  They have no food, water or 
shelter. They've been there for days.  They are starting to die.  She again 
urges us all to speak with all we know and pressure 
authorities to open our own borders and pledge to take in refugees.  
This seems to be the measure that will encourage Macedonians to open 
the borders now.

...She is determined to spend 
her days in the Neutral Zone bringing in as many supplies as she can.
