France: 'Open the border!' — Hundreds rally in solidarity with refugees in Menton

Hundreds of people rallied in solidarity with refugees next to the French border with Italy in Menton, France, on Saturday, amid an increasingly desperate situation for hundreds of people stranded between the two countries. Organised by numerous humanitarian agencies, the rally evolved into a march into Menton, with people calling for freedom of movement and settlement, and equality of rights... Еще for refugees. Demonstrators chanted «we are all the children of migrants, first, second, third generation.» Around 700 migrants were reportedly stranded at the French-Italian border between Menton and Ventimiglia in early December, according to Italian media. According to Oxfam, around 500 of them have been living in a Red Cross centre, while the remaining 200 have been forced to sleep in the open.
