WHAT THE INTERIOR MINISTER BERNARD cAZENEUVE SAYS:
NUMBERS OF MIGRANTS IN CALAIS TO GO DOWN FROM 6000 TO 2000
200 EXTRA PLACES FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN FOR A TOTAL OF 300
1500 PLACES IN THE NEW CAMP costing 18 MILLIONS EUROS, 400 PEOPLE will be EVICTED to make room in the next days.
300 MORE GENDARMES (ON TOP OF 225 ALREADY PRESENT) AND 160 CRS ON TOP OF OF 440 PRESENT) FOR A TOTAL OF 1.125 POLICE TO SECURE THE PLACE AND FIGHT AGAINST INTRUSION AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
BUT THESE MEASURES ARE NOT A PERMANENT SOLUTION, THE AIM IS TO FACILITATE THE DEPARTURE OF THE POPLE FROM THE LAND.
THOSE WHO RENOUNCE TO GO TO ENGLAND CAN ASK FOR ASYLUM IN FRANCE. ORIENTATION CENTRES WILL SOON BE OPENED WHERE THEY CAN STAY UNTIL THEY RECONSIDER AND APPLY FOR ASYLUM IN FRANCE.
THOSE WHO REFUSE THIS HELP ARE LIABLE TO BE DEPORTED OR OF PENAL SANCTIONS.
So it is likely there will be soon more evictions of the jungle that was ‘tolerated’ by the authorities – but clearly is not going to be tolerated any longer. 300 women and children will be let to stay in the Jules-Ferry centre, 1.500 people will sleep in containers in the new concentration-style camp, where they will have to give their name when they enter and will be controlled all the time.
ALL OTHER PEOPLE SHOULD LEAVE CALAIS BY THEIR WILL OF BY FORCE, ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT’S PLANS.
TODAY 23/10/2015 IN PARIS THE POLICE EVICTED THE EX-SCHOOL OCCUPIED BY THE MIGRANTS FROM LA CHAPELLE, WHO HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR MONTHS FOR A PLACE TO LIVE. Some have been given a place but many have not.
All deportation centres in France are full. People are also being deported from Calais to other parts of France by private jets, 3 per week in an attempt to reduce numbers in the jungle.
Refusals of people who apply for asylum in France are on the increase, as well as deportations and attempts to deport, even to countries at war such as SUDAN. The Sudanese are particularly targeted, maybe because they are more numerous, 4 Sudanese have been deported to Sudan and others are at risk of deportation.
ASK THE GOVERNMENT WHY THEY DO SUCH BAD THINGS TO MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO ARE MOSTLY
FLEEING WAR AND ASK THEM WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO WITH THE MANY THOUSANDS WHO CONTINUE TO ARRIVE BECAUSE THE CAPITALISTS AND IMPERIALISTS ARE DESTROYING THEIR COUNTRIES, THEY HAVE CREATED THE BIGGEST REFUGEE CRISIS IN HISTORY AND THE EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS CAN ONLY THINK OF MORE REPRESSION, MORE DEPORTATIONS, MORE FENCES AND MORE PRISONS.
THE NEW CAMP! PLEASE OPPOSE ITS CONSTRUCTION!!!
JOIN THE STRUGGLE FOR SAFE AND DIGNIFIED LIVING CONDITIONS, AGAINST DEPORTATIONS,
AGAINST ALL PRISONS, FOR OPENING THE BORDERS!!!
The association who is collaborating with the government in the construction of this concentration-style camp in the worst part of the jungle, that gets flooded every time it rains, is
