01-05-2009 11:55Due to the policies of the UK government the French port town of Calais is
witnessing a humanitarian crisis the likes of which were once unheard of
in the modern western Europe. Thousands of people risk their lives to
enter England in search of a new life, surviving with the 'illegal'
solidarity of local people. It is a bottleneck of the resistance of
migrants from around the world who are challenging Fortress Europe by
their attempts to move. It will also be the location for a No Border camp
this summer, (23-29 June.) People from the No Borders Network in the UK
report back on a recent trip to Calais, put the mobilisation into context
and shine a light on the crisis in Calais to illuminate the relevance of
the No Borders position.
