Our partners L’Auberge des Migrants are marching 870 miles to show their support of refugees and migrants, calling on governments to provide more safe and legal routes for those fleeing war and persecution, and demanding an end to the ‘crime of solidarity’.
If you believe we should be welcoming refugees.
And want to use your voice to protest against the closed borders of “Fortress Europe”, where protecting borders becomes more important than protecting people.
And want to demand an end to the criminalisation of solidarity in France.
What is the route and schedule?
The march leaves Ventimiglia on April 30, 2018 and ends in London on July 8. It has 60 stages, including Nice, Marseille, Lyon, Dijon, Paris and Lille.
Each step will follow, except special cases, these approximate times: departure 9:30, arrival 16:30. The average stage is 20 to 25 km. This supposes, by removing an hour of pause, on average 5 to 6 hours of walking at 4 km / h.
It will be finishing in London on July 8th – where we are planning a community event to welcome those finishing the march. Watch this space for further details about the event.
