This afternoon, twenty No Borders activists protested at the
sous-prefecture in Calais, demanding an immediate end to the
persecution of migrants and calling for freedom of movement for all.
The activists unfurled a banner proclaiming ' Human Rights have no
borders ', alongside others made by migrants in response to their
eviction on Tuesday. One banner read, ' The jungle is our house,
please don't destroy it. If you do, so then where is the place to go ? '
The clearances which began on Tuesday were due to end today.
However, Besson has now admitted that the operation is likely to
continue for weeks. One activist commented ' since the destruction
of squats and jungles doesn't offer a viable solution, the harsh
repression of migrants has no end in sight '
A fellow activist added, ' Instead of attacking migrants, Western
governments need to address the problems of war and economic
inequality which force people into exile '.
