[Béziers, France] Right of Asylum difficult to access

Béziers, this middletown of Southern France is known for it’s mayor, Robert Ménard, well-known far-right French politician. He is famous for his provocative remarks about foreigners. Nevertheless, Béziers has long tradition of receiving migrants. And today, some refugees coming from Calais Jungle are also staying in Béziers.
Right across the train station, an NGO “La Cimade” is running a CADA, Welcoming Center for Asylum Seekers. The place is very open to outside in order to help every migrant and foreigner in difficult situation.
It’s here where all asylum seekers arrive. They live and get help in their application. Real commitment in daily life and remarkable diligence.
