Expected at the initiative of the regional prefecture, an attempt to evacuate part of the migrants from the Porte d'Aubervilliers would have failed due to lack of staff, reports France Bleu. The facts happened Thursday, November 21 in the morning.
Cancellation of evacuation "at the last moment"
"Evacuation canceled at the last moment", alert the collective Solidarite migrants Wilson on his Facebook account. "The ten buses of the regional prefecture and the two of the City of Paris have just left empty!" Say the volunteers.
These vehicles were to take care of the "hundreds of people" evacuated, nearly 500, who live in this camp. The latter, with more than 2,000 migrants, is now the biggest in Paris after the evacuation of 1,600 people from the camp at the Porte de la Chapelle in early November.
A member of another association, Utopia 56, told the media that "there was a rumor of dismantling, except that the organization was big no matter what".
The lack of police officers
According to the volunteer, the prefecture representatives went there, but there were no officials to guide the evacuation.
According to him, there was only "some municipal policemen but not a real device to be able to frame things, we did not understand anything!"
"A lot of people wanted to go up but the buses left empty," he says.
