According to Buzzfeed, the boy is among 10,500 refugees at the Idomeni makeshift camp at the Greek-Macedonian border.

While children around him are battling scabies and influenza, among other afflictions, he chose to take a moment to demonstrate solidarity with Brussels.

The refugees based at the camp are calling for the opening of the border which was closed after European Union leaders — headquartered in Brussels — agreed to begin sending refugees back to Turkey.

It is touching that despite this boy’s hardships, he holds no animosity toward one of the Western countries that tends to treat his people like castaways.
