The 3rd of October Theo Francken is coming to speak in Leuven. He is the state secretary of asylum and migration for the right-wing party N-VA. His far-right rhetoric is part of the rise of the right wing across the world. As a true conservative/ neo-liberal politician he applauded the police raids and the removal of migrants and asylum seekers around the area of Brussels North station. He called it "cleaning up", comparing human beings to trash. Lately his political activities include inviting the NISS (Sudanese secret services) to Brussels in order to identify Sudanese refugees. A lot of these people fled from Sudan's government prosecution. The irony is that here they found Theo Francken collaborating with the same secret service that prosecuted them in Sudan.

We are protesting/ calling for protest because, as a group, we are opposed to this policy of exclusion and racism. For us, human beings are not trash, and we don't believe in the division in first and second class citizens. We feel more connected with ordinary people from all around the world than with "our" Belgian politicians. We express our solidarity with all migrants and people trying to find a better future. We stand together against these policies. We are not asking for anything from these politicians, but we are fighting towards a better life for the people from below.
Cleaning up is for trash, not for human beings.
