French Authorities Bulldoze Dunkirk Migrant Camp

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on Friday, 19 June, 2009 by bristolnoborders

WHY WE ARE GOING TO CALAIS:

Wednesday June 17th: These images may look like they are taken in Palestine, but they are in fact from just across the Channel.

(report is google translation)

Wednesday June 17 to 9:00 am, the national police, the PAF, and agents of the autonomous port of Dunkirk have destroyed the refugee camps opposite the ferry terminal in Dunkirk

The camp housed hundreds of migrants.

The migrants “housed” here were mainly new arrivals, mostly teenagers.

The method is well established, and always the same scenario of destruction that runs in a loop at Dunkirk in years.

dunkirk1Nobody had time to salvage anything from the destructive crush gear tents, huts, food, clothing, and above all personal belongings, papers, money, photos of a baby mama …. there is certainly a desire to create a climate of terror and insecurity among refugees.

For years, the State, in Dunkirk, destroyed the camps but does not solve the problem

CALAIS NO BORDERS CAMP 23-29 JUNE 09 link to film

The Calais border is an important focal point for the struggle between those who would see an end to all migration into the EU and those trying to break down the barriers between peoples, the borders that prevent the freedom of movement for all, not just the privileged few. The Calais No Border camp is an exciting joint venture between French activists and migrant support groups and the UK No Borders Network.

It aims to highlight the realities of the situation in Calais and Northern France; to build links with the migrant communities; to help build links between migrants support groups; and lastly, but not least, to challenge the authorities on the ground, to protest against increased repression of migrants and local activists alike. This camp is not just about Calais: we are calling for the freedom of movement for all, an end to borders and to all migration controls. We call for a radical movement against the systems of control which divide us into citizens and non-citizens, into the documented and the undocumented.

How do I Find Out More?

Come along to the Film and Info Night at The Island, Where No Borders Activists Will answer all your questions. Or e-mail :bristolnoborders@riseup.net
