The Legal Centre, located in the heart of the Calais slum and created following a campaign that gathered more than 50 000 signatories, invites you to a press conference on Friday, February 12th at 11:00 am, at our office, to bring you up to date with the appalling rise of very serious assaults against migrants by both militias and the police.  As part of our legal consultations numbering several hundred, numerous complaints and testimonials (more than fifty involving hundreds of victims) were reported. We now intend to hand them over to the authorities as quickly as possible.

During this press conference, we will unveil places and methods used by aggressors together with case examples, as well as the severity of injuries suffered by migrants, as recorded by medical professionals and our team.

Your support will be much appreciated regarding the scale of the assaults, the nature of their authors and the emergency of the situation

Location: Legal Centre, next to the Theatre (large white Dome), Calais slum
Date: Friday, February 12th 2016 
Time: 11:00 am
