16/06 10 a.m;: flight will be on 6 pm to day
Between 30 and 40 people of Congolese origin are going to be taken on a collective flight this Sunday (tomorrow).
They have been taken to several closed centres in Belgium in recent days. 15 have been taken to closed centre at Merksplas. At this moment some of them have been put in isolation, though not all since there are not enough isolation cells for them.
Many of them do not have a laissez passez.
Some of them have women and children in Belgium.
Many of them have been here for some years. One of them has been here 21 years.
Some of them are (opposition) political activists.
One of the women is pregnant.
For many it is the first time that Belgium has tried to deport them.
They are refusing this collective deportation, want to resist and demand help! See here the way that charter flights are used:
