Call for action against Calais eviction

URGENT CALL OUT for activists, legal observers, journalists and video activists to support migrants in Calais, France against imminent police attack and deportation!

Information from activists on the ground in Calais points to the police preparing to destroy some or many of the ‘jungles’ housing around 1,800 migrants in Calais, sometime this week beginning Monday 20th July. These ‘jungles’ are where people who have travelled across Europe wait in makeshift shelters, with little food or medical assistance, for their nightly attempts to get onto lorries making the crossing to the UK. Many of the migrants will be unaware of this threat. Reports from Calais say the French authorities are preparing for the destruction of the make-shift camps next Tuesday, 21st July, with a mass deportation flight to Afghanistan planned on Friday, 24th July.


‘Tuesday Night Project’ Barbecue: Tuesday 21st July

The next Tuesday Night Project barbecue is on Tuesday 21st July from 6pm at Nottingham and Notts Refugee Forum (Square Centre). This month we have a Zimbabwean theme to the night as our friends from Nottingham Zimbabwean Community Network are helping to prepare and cook the food. There will be plenty of good food and music and lots to do. Any donations of cash, food or refreshments are welcome.

The barbecue is followed by a meeting organised by members of the Tuesday Night Project and No Borders Nottingham. The meeting will give a report back from Calais No Borders Camp and give an opportunity for members of the Zimbabwean community to talk about the current situation in Zimbabwe. Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there.

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.
