The violence of the border does not go on vacation.
Fisha, 22yo from Eritrea, died last Thursday 3 August around 11:40pm, hit on the highway by several vehicles after jumping from the van in which he was.
This is the seventh known death at the British border in 2017.
It’s not an account, 7 people it’s not a number, each of them it’s a person who’s dead.
A solidarity gathering was held yesterday at 6:30 pm in Calais, as it takes place after every death caused by the border policies.
