No Borders Camp—Brussels

30 Sep

The NO BORDER Camp organises debates, workshops and direct action concerning migration policy.
No Border Camp Brussels: from 25th September until 3rd October

Since Saturday 25th of September about a thousand activists have put their tents up on the site of Tour & Taxis in Brussels. Everything is ready to host them until 3rd October : mobile kitchens, dry toilets and spaces for theoretical and practical workshops.

The camp denounces the European migration policy and fights for freedom of movement and settlement. Right now, more than 32 thousand migrants are locked up in 250 centres across the European Union and Europe is controlling its borders more and more with the help of its border agency called FRONTEX.

Protests, workshops and information
Since the start of the camp, different actions took place. On sunday, 130 activists demonstrated in front of the closed center 127bis at Steenokkerzeel to commemorate the twelfth anniversary of the murder of Semira Adamu. The police used violence against the demonstrants. On monday there was a bus- and bycicletour passing different places of interest in Brussels concerning migration. On tuesday a group of 60 percussionists went through the streets surrounding the camp to meet the neighbours and inform them about the actions and message of the camp. On 29th September certain activists of the camp joined, as an anti-capitalist block, the protest of the trade unions during the gathering of ECOFIN, a council composed of the economy and finance ministers of the EU.

The No Border Camp organises a large authorized demonstration this Saturday 2nd October through the streets of Brussels to denounce the closed detention centers, migration policy and to plead for freedom of movement and settlement.
