Demonstration in Support of Chechen Families in Nimes

Local sources have reported that there was a demonstration in support of the Chechen families who are staying on the streets of Nimes, France.

According to the reports, the demonstration was held in front of the Nimes prefecture building between 3:00pm and 5:00pm on September 3. Representatives from local human rights organizations and French citizens attended the demonstration. The participants demanded shelter for the homeless Chechen asylum seekers.

Human rights activists sent a letter to “Le conseil général du Gard (General Council of Gard)”. In the letter, it was explained that 61 asylum seekers, most of them children, from the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria were evicted from their living spaces in Nimes. The letter pointed out the legal responsibility of the General Council in protecting the children and asked for immediate shelter for the Chechen asylum seekers.

On the other hand, the Education without Borders Network (RESF – Réseau éducation sans frontière) has started a signature campaign. If you would like to support these Chechen families, you may sign the petition by following the link HERE.
