The state and their police hordes descended on Calais in heavy numbers this October to evict the jungle which used to house thousands of peopleeurotunnel-drone
on their way to the UK. Police have cleared and demolished the jungle and are arresting any person without documents remaining in the city.
While their brutality is a day-to-day affair in Calais (and elsewhere), this October signalled a clear increase in state repression. Besides the state, there is wide-spread corporate involvement in Europe’s repressive migration policies. Also in Calais, security companies have a flourishing industry from privatization of border control inspections to the manufacturing of tear gas & drones; from detention & detainee transport contractors to constantly increasing fences & walls along the highway. Join this info-evening for updates on the recent situation in Calais as well as an exploration of the border regime in Calais and its collaborators.
