Migrants in Calais and at the borders, July 19 to August 14 2016
Summer 2015 - summer 2016: the number of migrants has tripled in Calais; evictions
evacuations, squats and camps destructions follow each other on the coast and inland, in Paris,
at the Italian border; the device of "respite centers" become Centers of Reception and
Orientation, enters in duration and develops, as a means to disperse the people rather than solve
the problems where they arise; the walls multiply, also deaths. In silence: this summer, migrants
are not attractive anymore.
