05/10/2017: They were several dozens this Sunday afternoon 1st of October 2017 to walk to the closed centre 127 bis in Steenokkerzeel to show their outrage against these retentions and deportations.
They made a hundred people happy. Bangladeshi, Algerians, Rwandese, Iraqis, Brazilians, Cameroonians and 2 Sudanese minors, and loads of women extremely happy to see us coming.
Around 20 calls on our telephone:
« THANK YOU THANK YOU »
« Now we know we are not alone »
« Today we are feeling fine »
« It is very pleasant»
« It moves us deeply »
« We are extremely grateful »
« It comforts us »
« There are people who think about us, it is great »
« We are suffering here»
« It is torture to be retained here»
« Thank you »
« we are not terrorists »
« It is so kind of you »
« Thank you for what you are doing for us»
« They come to take us at 5 a.m to bring us to jail. It is scandalous.»
« When we get back home, we will burn all your embassies »
« It’s wonderful »
« Please warn the human rights people, they have to come and see »
« Where are the human rights ? »
« We are human beings »
« We need your help »
« we need help »
« This is inhuman »
CALL to reiterate the walk in front of all the closed centres: Bruges, Merksplas, Caricole, Vottem.
CALL to the people who can keep a phone contact with one of them or go and visit them. Languages: French, Arabic, English, Dutch, Portuguese, etc.
AND CALL to help us recharge their phones to enable them to have contacts with the outside. Our cash boxes are almost empty !!
You may support the retainees by buying a 5 or 10 euros Lycamobile or Ortal recharge at your grocer’s, bookshop or nightshop. Send us the pin code that is written on the recharge card to our email address gettingthevoiceout(a)riseup.net or by SMS to our mobile phone number 0032(0)484026781
It is of the upmost importance to warn the family and friends of their situation and a recharge brings a considerable assistance to the retainees, also enabling them to contact us again.
We send the code to the retainees asking for it, it enables them to keep a contact with us and with the outside.
If easier, you may also send us 5, 10,20 euros or more – a standing order would be even better- on the account :
Collectif Contre Les Expulsions
Banque Triodos BE58 5230 8016 1279 BIC: TRIOBEBB
Please spread the word.
THANK YOU on their behalf.
