The No Borders Group in Calais are calling out for immediate international solidarity from antifa groups around Europe, and desperately need support and numbers to help prevent a rising number of fascist attacks.

For the past few days, a farmhouse which was squatted in Coulogne (a small town neighboring Calais) by some locals who are friends of No borders group here has been under constant attack by fascist elements in the city. A group of fascists (sometimes numbering as much as 50 persons) has stationed itself outside the front of the house, the group consistently throw rocks at the roof, windows, and building, follow and intimidate people coming and going from the house, and have threatened an escalation of violence. Tomorrow (Feb 21) they will hold a demonstration outside the squat, which we expect may result in an escalation in attacks.

We are calling on anyone able to join us in Calais and help to resist these attacks by fascists. If possible, please bring your friends/a group.

Solidarity Demo : Rally for Tolerance, 1st March @ 14:30

With the fascist attacks continuing to escalate (see here for details:, anti-racist residents of Calais have called for a public show of support, meeting in Calais town centre on Saturday 1st March. (Though if you can come to Calais before this please do!)


Call-out from anti-racist residents of Calais.

Gathering with music and dance, words and food.

Saturday 1 March 2.30 PM. Place d’Armes, Calais.

We are indignant to see that hundreds of people are living in the street whilst houses are empty and abandoned. Indignant about the passivity or hostility of the authorities and for the demonstrations of fascist hatred in these last days.

These fascists do not represent Calais. There are also many more people who have been engaged for years, as individuals or with groups, in hospitality and openness.

Whether we are long term residents of Calais or passing through, we will come together to share a moment of tolerance and solidarity.



Prises de parole, musique et danse, goûter solidaire.

Samedi 1er mars à partir de 14h30 place d’Armes à Calais.

Nous sommes indignés de voir des centaines de personnes à la rue quand des maisons sont vides et abandonnées. Indignés par la passivité ou l’hostilité des autorités, et par les manifestations de haine de ces derniers jours.

Mais ce n’est pas tout Calais. Il y a aussi toutes ces personnes qui s’engagent depuis des années à titre personnel et dans les associations, toute une hospitalité invisible, tout un désir d’ouverture.

Que nous soyons d’ici ou de passage, venons partager un moment pour la tolérance et la solidarité.”
