Nice association opposes anti-immigrant C-Star

Nice association opposes anti-immigrant C-Star

By Staff Writer - August 27, 2017

The C-Star ship, which has been involved in anti-migrant operations off Libya, may be coming to Nice. A number of citizens are already up in arms at the possibility.

The All Citizens association said; “We refuse to allow Nice to become the backbone of a racist and murderous enterprise.”

The C-Star vessel, carrying extreme-right Italian, French and German activists, has been sailing in the Mediterranean since July 7 when it lifted anchor from Djibouti. Under the slogan “Defend Europe”, the Generation of Identity group wants to push migrants’ boats back to Africa and prevent the work of NGOs that have been picking up migrants and taking them to safety in Europe.

C-Star has been in Malta, but plans to return to the sea. The ship could go to France, Croatia, Rome or Barcelona. Toulon has also been touted as a possible port of call.

All Citizens has appealed to the prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes, the captaincy of the port of Nice, the chamber of commerce and industry, which manages the port and the Nice-Côte d’Azur Metropolitan Area to prevent the C-star from calling at the port of Nice.
