Second flight in four days for an Afghan man + suicide attemps – today June 23th

// Quick update : the plane left without him!! He is back in detention center, where he is supposed to be released tomorrow as it 45th day in detention is coming. He is not doing well but he has support from other detainees and is at least, not deported.

At airport the police beated him. There was around 8 people distributing flyers to passengers to explain them the situation. At boarding there was lots of police plus the Prefecture (which one, we don’t know, if somebody has clue please let us know). The pilot decided to leave quickly, while the man was locked up and masked at the end of the plane. He started to scream and passengers started to stand up in solidarity, making it impossible for the pilot to leave in safety who had to come back and leave the guy in France! //

Today June 23th, the afghan man, who had a deportation stopped last tuesday due to solidarity actions and his resistance in the plane, is having a second flight scheduled for 4.20pm today with Turkish Airlines, from Paris-CDG.

At time of writing, 11.50am, there was still no flights timetable of today in the cabins, which means that the concerned person just heard about it. In desesperation and in order to stop his deportation, the person hurted himself. It is really possible that he will be under sedation in order to force him to be calm at the airport and during all the time of the plane.

Another man who has a deportation today tried to commit suicide. We don’t know him neither his situation now. If his deportation is kept on going, he will probably be under sedation also.

Folks in Paris are trying to mobilize to distribute flyers at the airport Charles-de-Gaule to inform passengers of the current situation. Get in touch with La Chapelle Debout if you can go there.

Four Afghan men are facing deportation directly to Afghanistan, something hasn ‘t happened in France since 2009. All of them have been arrested at the train station of Calais on May 10th, and transfered to the Mesnil-Amelot detention center near Paris.

Four flights have been scheduled for these men, starting in 3 days with 2 police escoarts for each of them :

1 on Tuesday June 20th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 on Wednesday June 21th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)  flight canceled
1 on Friday June 23th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 on Saturday June 24th from Paris Roissy-CDG to Kabul at 16:20 on Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1) flight canceled

Since the signing of an agreement between EU and Afghanistan on October 4-5th 2016 faciliting the forced return of Afghan people to Afghanistan, some countries (e.g. Germany, Sweden, and Norway) have started mass deportations to this country, seen as unsafe in the eyes of the international community. Now France is joining (something that hasn’t happened since 2009);  at least 80 Afghan people are detained in detention centers, with at least 17 at Mesnil-Amelot and 4 at risk of deportations. Two flights have been canceled last week.

4 hommes afghans font face à un risque d’expulsion directe vers l’Afghanistan, une pratique horrible qui n’était pas arrivée depuis 2009 en France. Ils ont tous été arretés à la Gare de Calais le 10 mai 2017 et transférés au centre de retention administrative Mesnil-Amelot près de Paris.

4 vols sont prévus pour chacun d’entre eux avec deux escortes de police pour chacun :

1 le mardi 20 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 le mercredi 21 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1) vol annulé
1 le vendredi 23 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1)
1 le samedi 24 juin de Paris Roissy-CDG vers Kabul a 16h20 avec Turkish Airlines (Terminal 1) vol annulé

Depuis la signature d’un accord entre l’Union européenne et l’Afghanistan les 4-5 octobre derniers facilitant le retour forcé de personnes afghanes vers l’Afghanistan, certains pays de l’UE se sont précipités de déporter plusieurs centaines d’Afghan-e-s. C’est le cas de l’Allemagne, la Suède et la Norvège. Désormais la France se joint à la pratique (chose qui n’était pas arrivée depuis 2009), où au moins 80 personnes afghanes sont enfermées dans des CRA, dont 17 au Mesnil-Amelot et 4 risquant l’expulsion. 2 vols ont été annulés la semaine dernière.

CALL OUT FOR SOLIDARITY! Court Case for the occupation of the ‘Spirit of Britain’

On Monday 22nd February at 13:30 8 people will stand in court in Boulogne-Sur-Mer facing trial for occupying the ‘Spirit of Britain’ ferry on Saturday 23rd of January. Six of the defendants are people without papers from Afghanistan, Sudan and Syria, all currently living in the jungle. They are charged for ‘breaching the transport code’, which in this instance involves entering and occupying a ferry without authorisation. Standing on trial alongside these six will be two French people with papers. They face the same charges for breaching the transport code, as well as a further charge of facilitating entry to the port and ferry. The maximum sentence for these offences is up to 6 months in prison or a €3,500 fine per person.

The two people with papers have been released on bail whist awaiting trial. The six without papers were held in detention and have since been sent to Longeunesse prison in Saint-Omer. Regardless of the outcome of the trial, the future for the people without papers is not clear. We do not know if they will be released free or if they will be sent to a detention centre, possibly resulting in them being deported back to the war torn countries that they are fleeing from.

This is a call out inviting people to come and show support to those facing trial. We ask for people to come and stand with us in solidarity with those facing oppression and sanctions as a result of resisting the border. We are in the process of organising transport for those without papers in the jungle who wish to be present at the trial, and encourage anyone else who has access to a vehicle to offer the same.

The French government wishes to make an example of these 8 people – fight the border and pay the price. We wish to make a stand against this. We will always be against the border. We will always fight for the right to freedom of movement. Come to the court at Place de la Résistance in Boulogne and stand with us, and with our friends facing trial.
