Filed under: Belgium, deportation, detention — twentyonemiles @ 9:12 am

From 25th September – 3rd October there was a No Border camp in Brussels. Hundreds of people came from across Europe to attend demos and workshops and take direct action against Fortress Europe.

The camp started with a demo outside Steenokkerzeel detention centre near Brussels airport on the 26th. On the 2nd, there was march through the centre of Brussels demanding “No Borders, No Nations”.

There were also several actions against the agencies and companies that prop up Fortress Europe. A conference featuring Frontex, the Europe Border Agency, was blockaded, and the doors of the IOM (International Organisation of Migration) were glued shut. There were also actions against Sodexo, Serco and Steria.
