TRANSNATIONAL DEMO FOR FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT AND THE ABOLITION OF
MIGRATION CONTROLS. Calais, Saturday 27th June 2009.
In Calais there are around 800-1000 migrants at any one time that are
trying to cross the Channel, under constant harassment from the police.
These migrants are harassed because they do not have the right papers,
or in many cases no papers at all - they are 'sans-papier'.
These 'sans-papier' in Calais are only the tip of the iceberg: it is
estimated that there are over 200,000 sans-papier in France, 1 million
in the UK, and up to 7 million in Europe as a whole.
All sans-papier face the same battle - to live and work without
exploitation, harassment and fear of arrest and deportation.
NoBorders calls for a world without papers, where everyone lives where
The route of the demo is the reverse of the walk that many migrants in
Calais make on a daily basis - from Coquelles, where they are detained,
to the lighthouse, where there is a daily food distribution.
We call on all individuals and groups that struggle for the rights of
migrants to sign this call and mobilise for the demo.
The demo is part of a NoBorder camp that is taking place in Calais from
23rd to 29th June (http://calaisnoborder.eu.org).
The demo will start at 10am from the lighthouse on Boulevard des Alliés.
