Far-left activists accused by France of ‘exploiting’ Calais migrants

These No Borders cunts are stirring up a lot of the trouble in Calais. Most of them are British (sorry France). They're going to get someone killed.

No Borders: Calais violence 'stirred up by British anarchists', say French politicians

As the protest unfolded on Saturday there were ugly scenes when a small breakaway group, said to have been refugees and their supporters, descended on a residential property in Calais.

Video posted online shows a stand-off between the chanting group and two French men who come close to trading blows before being pelted with missiles.

At one point during the footage a man with a British accent shouts from behind the camera "Nazi scum". The protesters only back away when one of the men appears with an air rifle.

A local police chief claimed the No Borders group is predominantly made up of British activists.

Gilles Debove is reported as saying: "Ninety percent of the people involved with No Borders are from Britain. They stir up the migrants and cause us a lot of problems, they are political agitators."

Far-left activists accused by France of ‘exploiting’ Calais migrants
Far-left activists from Britain and elsewhere are giving migrants walkie-talkies and chainsaws to get through the police lines and fencing that protect the port and rail terminal at Calais.

French officers say that the “quasi-military tactics” are not so much designed to ensure that migrants reach the UK as to heighten tensions in Calais and further a political agenda.

Charity workers say that most of the 4000 migrants there want nothing to do with the activists. No more than 300 of them are under their control, a police source said, yet they regularly confront riot police.

Police say that among the volunteers are several dozen activists seeking to promote the philosophy of No Borders. They come from Britain, France, Belgium, Italy and elsewhere and their aim, stated on a far-left French website, is to “highlight the situation in Calais and defy the authorities on the ground”.

Police say that it is almost impossible to distinguish them from bona fide volunteers. “The activists try to curry favour by putting up shelters and distributing food,” a police union spokesman, Gilles Debove, said. “But it is done so that they can manipulate the migrants.

He said that the No Borders activists had gained influence over “200 to 300 migrants — mainly those aged between 17 and 25 and of nervous character”.

In recent months these migrants have fought nightly battles with riot police to block traffic so that they can stow away in lorries. Police cleared a 100m wide strip of land to create a buffer between the camp and the road. The tactics are changing as a result, with migrants dividing into groups to make co-ordinated attacks on the port or Eurotunnel’s site. Each group has a leader with a telephone or a walkie-talkie, police say.

One group will cut through the fence around the terminal and when police move to stop it a second will be told to make a similar move against the port.

“It is simultaneous and there is no doubt who is organising it,” Mr Debove said. He said that the activists had bought chainsaws for the migrants.

“That doesn’t mean the migrants get to Britain. Hardly any do now. But that’s not what these activists want. What they want is to keep up the political pressure.

British anarchists led violence in Calais and defaced statue of de Gaulle in invasion of ferry port by 500 migrants
British anarchists were among some 35 people under arrest in Calais on Sunday after leading a 'scandalous' invasion of the ferry port by some 500 migrants.

Not only did the thugs tear down security fences and threaten violence, but they also defaced a statue of France's wartime leader and former president Charles de Gaulle.

Masked agitators from the left-wing group No Borders were filmed during the trouble on Saturday afternoon as they tried to get people to the UK.

Xavier Bertrand, the president of the French region which covers Calais, said: 'The attitude of No Borders in Calais is scandalous – there must be a punishment,' said

Gilles Debove, of the Calais police union, said: ‘I cannot understand why British citizens come to Calais to incite migrants to break the law and defy the French authorities'.



Thank you Bryan!

Ah Britain, continuing their proud tradition of fucking shit up in countries that aren't theirs.

Seriously, I need to just leave this country. I'm just so done with its bullshit.

Wow Britain must be so boring.

Not surprising it's a 'far left' group, if there's one thing this forum has taught me, it's the left is inherently evil.

Well I'm sure Europe's attitude towards refugees has gotten a lot more people killed. The articles you posted also make a lot of assumptions and generalisations which are clearly designed to promote an agenda.

Europe has taken in a huge amount of refugees, they were welcomed. What attitude?

Maybe those who wrote the articles are doing it to promote an agenda. The quotes in the articles are from French politicians, officers, etc.

The attitude whereby refugees are framed as swarms of horrible, evil people who would like nothing more than to leech of of others. The kind of attitude that leads to every single refugee being seen as basically sub-human.

That's basically what's been done here in Australia, the current government basically got voted in on it.

That's because it's the most convenient viewpoint to take. It means that the policymakers then have a strong mandate to simply deny them outright, or take measures that infringe upon their human rights. Like in Denmark where they are now seizing property from people who are practically destitute in the first place.

I have no words. I'm both sad and offended at the same time.

That's not a common attitude in Europe. Most countries were very welcoming. It's changing a bit now though (the main concern seems to be safety). There's a difference between refugees and migrants. 60% of those entering Europe are migrants, mostly men. Genuine refugees should be helped of course.

As for the Calais migrants, they can claim asylum in France. In fact you're supposed to do so in the first safe country you enter. These migrants want to continue on into the UK and claim asylum here. Our government hasn't decided whether to let them in yet. This has put France in a difficult position where they have to defend the border and stop them crossing. If the migrants can step foot in England they can claim asylum. This is why trucks are being attacked and ferries illegally boarded. No Borders activists seem to be encouraging this.
