It became recurring or systematic: an exiled dies, hit by a vehicle, the driver does not stop nor warns rescue. Sign of the climate of violence and dehumanization that exists here in Calais.

An exile is dead on the ring road leading to the port last night. He was 28 years old. He had come from Sudan.


The migrant support associations call to a rally in front of Richelieu parc at 6.30 pm tomorrow Thursday.
