IN CALAIS : gather Wednesday, January 30 @ 14H. Meet at the corner of Rue Moscow near the area of food distribution, bring banners and placards.
People with and without papers have spent winters on the streets since the closure Sangatte, and still the situation in Calais gets worse.
How many people in Calais must live without water, gas and electricity because they cannot pay the bills? How many must live in harsh conditions? How many more evictions are going to come this year at the end of the ‘winter truce’?
How many empty homes are there in Calais? How many could be used rather than lay empty? How many derelict buildings are being destroyed, like the old hospital, while there are so many people sleeping on the street?
