The 39 people, including 23 children, who had found refuge at the Saint-Sernin gymnasium since December 3 will be relocated. The associations that accompany them and the receipts obtained a small victory, after a meeting in the Prefecture on Tuesday, December 14.
The mobilization of DAL31, RESF, FCPE, the League of Human Rights and the Cercle des Voisins paid off. A delegation was received at the Prefecture on Tuesday, December 14, and got the families to be quickly rehoused.
A gymnasium for accommodation
These families, 39 people, including 23 children, had found refuge in the Saint-Sernin gymnasium in Toulouse, since Friday, December 3.
A decision taken when no temporary accommodation solution had been proposed. The associations which accompany them have since demanded emergency accommodation. Several support rallies have been organized in recent days, in particular that of teachers of these homeless children who attend school.
A “hotel shelter”
The accommodations obtained are hotel shelters for an indefinite period. This means that these families will be accommodated in hotel rooms. The associations specify that they will remain vigilant so that these updates are followed by stable accommodation proposals adapted to each individual’s situation.
In a press release, the associations specify that they are continuing the fight and continue to demand the application of the law of requisition of empty housing.
The rally to support the occupants of the gymnasium ended this Wednesday, December 15 at 2 p.m. in front of the Saint-Sernin gymnasium.
The associations wish to maintain a balance of power until the concrete emergency accommodation which will take place on Friday morning.
