Répondez à la chasse aux migrants de la mairesse sur Facebook.
L’appel publique à la délation sur Facebook, la semaine dernière par, Natacha Bouchart, est le dernier chapitre de sa mission, remplie de haine pour nettoyer Calais des migrants. L’incitant à la peur la population locale, elle encourage les résidents à aider la ville et la police à chasser les migrants de Calais, en lui dénonçant, par son courriel directement, des gens trouveraient refuges dans les bâtiments vides de Calais, tout en affirmant que si les gens ne font rien, il y aura 1.000 migrants à Calais pour Noël.
Envoyer à la mairesse et dite-lui ce que vous pensez : email@example.com
Voici un exemple de lettre :
«Bonjour, J’ai pris connaissance avec incrédulité et effroi de l’information concernant votre demande de dénonciation et souhaite par le présent courriel vous faire part de ma profonde désapprobation sur cet appel à délation. Je suis choquée et horrifiée de constater qu’une maire d’une ville française fait appel à des méthodes dignes d’un autre régime. La délation est un instrument utilisé dans pas mal de régimes totalitaires, d’extrême droite (Parti national socialiste d’Hitler) ou d’extrême gauche (STASI du Parti Communiste en République démocratique d’Allemagne) . Il s’agit d’une arme qui fait appel à des bas instincts et fait preuve d’une grande faiblesse des personnes qui y ont recours. Dans le réel espoir que vous renfoncerez à cette méthode de répression.
Bien à vous »

This is what the women living in Boulevard Hugo 51 say, most come from Eritrea and Ethiopia :
We don`t have any place to sit, to live or to have a rest, we have nothing. So we want to stay here. We want to have the chance to stay here.
We left our country to search for freedom and now we are still afraid. Until when are we going to be scared? We have no freedom here, its a cat and a rat game, we are always running, running, running. We came to Europe for freedom, but where is it?
We came over the sea, from Sudan to Lybia and than to Italy, we have been escaping from the beginning of our journey. We didnt leave because of economic reasons, we had food and shelter, some of us were going to university, but women and men have to go to the military service for two years, which can be changed to an illimitated amout of time.
We have no choice. And we are afraid of it. We left and we never have the chance to go back. If we go back we have to go to jail or even get killed. We are looking for freedom, the journey was very dangerous. In Lybia for example there is a lot of racism for example, a lot of african have been killed. And now we are here in Europe and play the cat and rat game. Everytime we see the police, we run away. Is it because we are „illegal“ or is it because we are black? Why people treat us like that? Some of us thought about staying in France, but after what they lived, they don`t see freedom here. They don`t want to live in racism again. They came for freedom, not for this. More than anything freedom is important, more than food or shelter. One of us got beaten by the police and than they put here in the garbage. An other one of us has been driven far away from Calais in the middle of the night. For what reason?
We don`t have any other place than this house, if we loose it, we will be in the street, we want to have the chance to stay here!

According to their facebook page the fascists postponed their demonstration from the 7th december to the 18 january.
Yesterday afternoon the justice gave the decision to evict 51 Victor Hugo, a squat in Calais which houses, at the moment, around thirty women and children. The process of obtaining the decision from the court was extremely confusing and created more feelings of insecurity, fear, and anger from the residents of the house. Still at this time we have not seen the actual judgment (nor has it been given to our lawyer), only learning what we have through the press!
Starting from 8:30AM people gathered outside the court house to express their continued support. We were very encouraged to see all the local people who came in solidarity! They shared our anger and frustration at the ongoing oppression of migrants in Calais, and the failings of the local government to respect people’s dignity.
At this moment, we continue to wait for more information and will communicate further once we have the judgment.
The fascists have cancelled their call for Tuesday at the court but have confirmed their demo on 7th December.
Watch their facebook page:
This is what they wrote:
“The demo planned for 19th Nov at 8.30am at Place d’arme is cancelled. The defendons calais ["defend Calais"] collective, after a meeting this afternoon of the people in charge, asked for people not to go to avoid confrontation with the handful of no border who will be present, as the smallest fight could stop the demo on 7th December from being authorised.
Those who wish to go in any case, the choice is yours but you cannot send a call out for people to come, in order to respect the demand of the Defend Calais collective who organised the sit-in at the town hall
and are organising the demo on 7th Dec.
We have out fingers crossed that the old woman will get her house back on that day…
We look forward to the result of the trial.”
