Refugees stuck on the Greece-Macedonia border sewed their mouths shut to protest the tightening of border controls on Tuesday. Some of the stranded protesters symbolically covered their mouths using tape with the word "equality" written on it. The protest follows Macedonian authorities’ decision to allow only Syrian, Iraqi and Afghan refugees into the country in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.
