There will be a gathering in front of Calais town hall at 14.30h on Saturday 1st March. There will be speakers followed by a march through the town centre. This is a demonstration for freedom, dignity and respect for all,
now. In Calais there are hundreds of people living in complete destitution whilst many houses stand empty and abandoned. Every day people are chased and harassed by police and used as scapegoats by the mayor to cover up the failures of her own administration. These dehumanising and hostile attitudes of the authorities of Calais promote violence and racism. Of course not everybody has these sentiments of mistrust and fear. Many Calaisiens are ashamed of seeing others treated in this way and are taking action. Today we call for solidarity for those who have escaped tyranny and oppression and come in search of we all want, which is freedom. Spread the word ! Bring your friends, family, banners and music and join the after party !
