EVERYBODY TO CALAIS November 28th and 29th!
LET'S CROSS THE CHANNEL! The State is sinking!
In 2002, Sarkozy closed a hangar. In 2009, Besson tackles the wastelands
On September 22nd, Besson played the big guy in Calais. In line with Sarkozy,
the minister of national identity and immigration can say he does what he says.
But what did he do? He sent hundreds of cops to round the refugees up
on wasteland (the jungles), most having fled the war made
by Western powers in Afghanistan, Iraq ...
No need to be a medium to know that the situation will not change.
The refugees still want, the vast majority live in Great Britain:
they want to cross the border !
What he did is physically assaulting people (refugees, support activists ...),
created a climate of terror. But ... the Refugees will not evaporate.
Once the storm passes, the cops reinforcements have left,
they will return or they have already gone to other places on the coast,
or even gone as far as Belgium or Holland.
What he has done, this is just posturing for the media to say that the state is there.
The government action came after a careful preparation of the population
For example, the prefecture of Pas de Calais destroyed the water taps ,
thus preventing the refugees from having access to this vital resource!
The hope of the prefecture was obviously to force them to go
into the gardens of houses in order to quench their thirst ...
The goal was obviously that Calaisians come themselves en masse
to demand the repression of refugees, or to help the Cops to do it.
Besson justifies his posturing in the media as the hunt for smugglers.
Without doubt people are probably taking advantage of the situation
created by the State and the European Community.
The best way to fight against trafficking in human beings and to ensure
that the material conditions of that trade no longer exist; said another way,
by closing the border states of the European Community
create the conditions for the general benefit of smugglers.
Besson is a liar. We know that, but it is beyond comprehension.
Why did many refugees not seek political asylum in France?
If they ask asylum here, they are at high risk
of being deported to a country in the sphere of the Dublin agreements.
Clearly, they would be sent back to the country they have been
for the first time and very often that means to Greece!
We can never prevent people from wanting to live where they wish.
We can never prevent people from wanting to immigrate.
Confirming the contrary, is to affirm that there is trafficking in human beings,
affirming that there are people who drown while trying to cross the oceans
Justifying the closure of borders to protect our social rights is also a lie.
In France the borders have been officially closed since 1974.
This has not prevented governments since from attacking our social acquisitions.
The rationale has been used to make scapegoats and to fuel racist ideology
to satisfy reactionary currents.
The only realistic response to resolve the issue of asylum seekers,
the refugees and the undocumented, especially in the Calais,
is to open the borders and to let the people live where they wish,
whatever their reasons.
It is important that we return to Calais to tell Besson,
Hortefeux, Sarkozy that their batons, their cops did not stop us.
That everyone will move and settle freely, that all people should always
be received worthily.
That we are sick that there is always enough money for repression,
beatings, deportations, but there never there is never for the respect
of human dignity!
