Paris deploys 'anti-migrant boulders' to thwart makeshift refugee camps
by Rose Trigg
First there were anti-migrant grills to block off pavements, now Paris City Hall has rolled in large boulders to dissuade migrants from setting up camps outside an official humanitarian centre in Paris.
The boulders appeared under a flyover at Porte de La Chapelle in the 18th arrondissement, of northern Paris, where migrants often sleep rough while waiting for one of the 400 spaces in the nearby official humanitarian welcome centre.
The boulders were put in place by the Paris City Hall, without the knowledge of Emmaus solidarité, the charity that runs the humanitarian migrant centre which opened November 2016.
