Filed under: France, Occupation, sans-papiers — twentyonemiles @ 10:48 pm

At 2pm this afternoon, Monday 22nd November, as a continuation of the campaign “Stop the racket of undocumented workers’ contributions, stop fiscal injustice“, hundreds of workers without papers and their supporters (including Droits devant, Union SNUI-SUD Trésor Solidaires, and CSP 17e Saint Just) occupied the “le centre des Finances publiques de Paris” at 6 boulevard de Reims in the 17th arrondissement. Their aim is to force the Economy and Budget ministers to respond to two questihons that were first put to them at the end of October: firstly, why do you persist in wanting to penalise undocumented workers who are compelled to work in the black economy, and secondly, why does your government prefer people to work in the black economy rather than give them status? This is the fifth occupation of the campaign which begun in January.
