map of how to say yes in Europe

The image above shows how to say hello in all the countries of Europe using the most common languages in each country. However below we have put together a list of all the different dialects of European languages we could find. There are some discrepancies. There are a few Russian dialects that are actually outisde of Europe. An example is Tartar. While technically an Asian dialect we have come from a position that if a country (ie Russia) is in at least partly in Europe, then we list all of it’s internal dialects and languages.

Donald Tusk Tells Migrants to Stay Away From Europe

Refugee crisis EuropeThe migrant crisis in Europe is heading towards disaster. With estimates of 16 million refugees fleeing the war in Syria and many hoping to make a new home in Europe, Donald Tusk has blatantly told economic migrants to stay away.

Do not come to Europe, Do not believe the smugglers. Do not risk your lives and your money. It is all for nothing. Greece or any other European country will no longer be a transit country.

He made the statement at a news conference in Greece and shows how the systems that are in place to deal with refuges has been stretched to the limit. It would appear that the refugees have made reduced the tolerance for other migrants. The European Union in an effort to stem the tide of refugees have blocked passage from Greece. Thousands of refugees camped on the Greek/Macedonian border have been left with no chance of moving on into central Europe. This has lead to violent clashes in the camps.

Even though his speech was aimed at migrants rather than refugees It does signal a hardening of policy towards people moving out of the Middle East and Africa. Tusk also visited Turkey hoping to talk the authorities into doing more but with over 2 million refugees being accommodated in Turkey, there is little more Turkey can do. The Prime Minister of Turkey Ahmet Davutoğlu has reiterated the need to create a safe zone in Syria itself.

Greece is suffering from an economic meltdown and the added strain the refugee crisis is placing on the country could see it sink further into the quagmire. The Council of the European Union will be meeting on Monday to try and come up with solution to the crisis. Many Europe watches believe that at best they may deliver some stop gap measures to reduce the tide of refugees.

Spanish Taxi Drivers Block Central Madrid Protesting Uber

Over a thousand taxi drivers have blockaded the center of Madrid on Thursday. Letting off flares, firecrackers, smoke bombs and blowing horns.

They are protesting plans to allow companies like Uber and Cabify to compete in the market place.

Currently Uber is not allowed to operate in Spain but the Spanish authorities are considering opening up the taxi market to more competition. The legality of companies such as Uber are in question all around the world. One major hurdle being insurance for passengers within the car.

The regulatory body in Spain the CNMC is going to publish a non-binding recommendation sometime next week. They are expected to recommend that ride-handling apps be allowed to operate within Spain.

The taxi sector around the world tends to be a heavily regulated sector and in Spain it is no different . Which leaves Taxi drivers at a disadvantage. For apps like Uber to not completely destabilize the current status quo, a compromise will need to be made. In some parts of the world an “Uber tax” has been implemented to allow governments to grow a treasure chest that will help taxi drivers to transition into the new economy. Hopefully this will be part of the CNMC’s recommendations.

Map of Kosovo

map of Kosovo

Here we have a map of one of the newest republics of Europe. The Republic of Kosovo seceded from Serbia in 2008 and has been a hotly disputed territory ever since. With a population of about 1.8 million citizens and a land size of about 10,908 km2, it is one of the smallest also. The capital of the republic is Pristina and the population is heavily dominated by Albanians. They make about 92% of the population and most follow the religion of Sunni Islam. However freedom of religion has been laid down in the new constitution. The Albanians know what religious persecution can do and want to avoid this in the future.

Map of Refugee Routes into Europe

Map of regugee Routes into Europe

 

We have provided a map of some of the refugee routes into Europe. Refugees fleeing conflicts in Syria, Libya and Iraq have had to mobilize and move out of their respective countries due to the escalation in violence. We at map of Europe will be developing a series of maps that we are hoping will help refugees flee the awful violence that is happening in their homelands. We are also hoping to educate non-refugees as to the plight of these poor people.

There has been a lot of scare mongering in the mainstream media and in our own little way we are trying to offset this with some rational discussion. We do understand that some individuals fleeing these war zones are not refugees but the overwhelming majority are and these people need to be treated with some respect and sympathy.
