A roof for all : demo in pictures

IMG_2932

On Wednesday (30th) the demo started at 14h a little too fast for once ...

between 40 and 50 people. Mostly migrants.

We crossed the city with drums and megaphones, giving out leaflets to passers-by.

The direction: the roof of the old house on rue Auber, abandoned, where forty exiles had slept last night due to the closure of BCMO.

This morning, police arrested about fifteen people who were still there.

This afternoon they were still not released.

We happily occupied the house under guard (street full of police of all kinds). When we started to be fewer we met to decide what to do. Exiles asked a Frenchperson go talk to the police for permission to sleep in this house. This was done and the response was that the issue would be put to the sub-prefect ...

Everyone is then dispersed.

The history of this house, a former emergency shelter, now empty, without adjoining neighbours. The story for this building is not over ...

Thank you to the friends who came from Boulogne, Dunkerque, Lille and elsewhere.
