“Humanity and Firmness”, They Always Say!

On December 30, 2012, two Algerians who were participating in a hunger strike for undocumented migrants in Lille were expelled from France. On January 1, 2013, 19 French organizations condemned this expulsion with the following declaration launched within the framework of the UCIJ:
It is no longer possible to have the slightest doubt about what this rhetoric covers. For the socialist government, it is not inhumane to persevere on appeal against an opposing court decision to wrest the right to expel two hunger strikers in an alarming state and to proceed “firmly” to this expulsion from the outset. dawn of the penultimate day of the year. We strongly affirm our will to oppose, by all means at our disposal, the pursuit of this policy during the coming year.
