Mayor of Strasbourg Denounces the French Government for Not Welcoming Immigrants

Date: May 31, 2023 Time: 05:08:45

He Accuses the French Executive of Leaving Hundreds of People Who Live on the Street on the Street

Today is a landmark victory for those who have been living on the streets. As we face an uncertain future and displacement a (global) large-scale phenomenon, cities around the world are realizing they need to be more welcoming of people living in tents and other marginal neighborhoods.

“The city of Strasbourg has decided to sue for the non-compliance with its municipal responsibilities on this humanitarian crisis.” Said the ecologist counselor before the media.

The mayor’s office has not specified a timeline for the judicial process, but they have urged all council members and organizations to join the lawsuit.

The Mayor of Paris has warned that illegal acts of this type have been happening in the city’s City Council, and they are even doing a good job of warning children to stay away from them. That’s not the first time these types of crimes have happened, according to sources.

An “Unprecedented” Humanitarian Crisis

As of the spring of 2022, the city in northwestern France has been dealing with a makeshift refugee camp in Étoile Park. It has about 300,000 inhabitants and is the headquarters of several international organizations.

As of December 2, Strasbourg has banned the Roma settlement. The court said that it’s illegal for this village to remain in place and ordered its dismantling, which began on Monday.

Ten years ago, the famous Toronto park was closed to the public, and it’s been open to homeless people and vagrants ever since. Today, a decision was made by Ontario Premier Doug Ford and the Canadian Border Services Agency that effectively violates these rights.

Despite the lack of reception facilities for immigrants, a number of French municipalities have joined together to voice their concerns. On October 10, they signed a joint forum addressed to the Government when they demanded “respect for the inalienable right of every person to have a roof.”

The most recent media coverage of this problem occurred in the municipality of Ivry-sur-Seine, on the outskirts of Paris. Nearly 450 underage migrants have lived there since June.

As of last Friday, 200 people have gathered outside the Council of State building in France to demand that they receive shelter.

“France is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in all the large French cities, with hundreds of vulnerable, sick or underage people living on the streets in the cold, without rights, without access to healthcare, in misery. Strasbourg does not escape this rule,” Barseghian said.
