Noise demo


A group of fifteen people which included migrants, No Borders activists and local Calais residents did a noise demo in solidarity with the people held at Coquelles Detention Centre.

We could hear people shouting back greetings as we played music with a portable sound system, an accordion and any aother materials which came to hand. All in all the demo took about two hours and was well worth it in terms of showing solidarity with people banged up because of borders.

Quite a lot of police turned up but they seemed fairly content to stand at the back and put their gloves on and off.

Update on hunger-strike:

The five hunger strikers at Coquelles have called off their strike after six days, when they were threatened with being moved to individual cells at the hospital. All are fine.
