Annie, who joined the protest said ‘the migrants living in Calais are people striving for a safe and secure life like everyone else. Forceful removal of people and bulldozing of their homes cannot be justified. Migration is not a crime’.
Protesters denounced the actions of the French government, and also those of the UK government which is complicit in the brutal repression of migrants in Calais.
The Consulate received a statement of condemnation.
