The inmates of Block West A3 ofÂ the detention complex in Alphen a.d. Rijn (Between Amsterdam and Rotterdam) collectively refused to return to their cells on Friday 19th.Â All are undocumented migrants,Â like Fofana who is already one year detained. They fight again for their freedom, after some of them launched a hungerstrike before, on the 18th of February at Schiphol Oost.Â The action has been triggered by the suicide of a guy from Irak. It was inspired also by the visit of ten activists protesting the planned construction of yet another prison at Rotterdam Airport Zestienhoven.
The activists showed their phone number and the inmates started to call them, using LIPS cards.Â Later on one of them told M2M that it appears that the uprising was been cut short by riot police who forcefully pushed them inside their cells. Tomorrow is another day.
World Refugee Day.
In Paris a manifestation took place in front of the “Retention Center” of Vincennes. This prison was evacuated a year ago after fire that wasÂ caused by trhe death of a protesting prisoner from Tunesia.
On Saturday 20th hundreds of migrants and activists will act in front of the CIE (Centro de Internamiento de Extranjeros)Â of Aluche in Madrid.
