There are big things happening in the port of Calais.

The French state is moving to eliminate migrants from that town.

At present there are about 700 migrants seeking to get to Britain. The police have destroyed three of their big camps, and they are now moving also to destroy the minor encampments.

A new squat has been opened in the centre of town, but we do not know how long it can last.

Here is the website for Calais Migrant Solidarity. Here is a good video about the new squat, and about hope for the future.

The eviction documented in the following video took place on 28 May, 2014.
