TWENTYONEMILES: Migrant struggles and resistance in Belgium, France and Switzerland

Occupation of the Cité de l’Immigration, Paris

Filed under: France, Occupation, sans-papiers — twentyonemiles @ 10:25 am

Since 7th October, over 500 undocumented workers have occupied the Cité de l’Immigration (formerly the Musée des Colonies) in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. They are demanding that the accord made between the government and the CGT union on 18th June, which allowed for the regularisation of sans-papiers who can prove a recent work history, is put into action. So far out of the 1870 applications made only 58 have been accepted.
