Nine of us had arranged to meet on 2 September at the Brussels-South train station where the TGV set off at around 6:25 a.m. The group finally reached their destination 12 hours later, in Breil-sur-Roya, France.
While this is not the only place marked by this struggle, we chose it for two reasons. The first one is very pragmatic, France being a country where we can speak our mother tongue. Secondly, the group wanted to meet Cédric Herrou, a prominent French media figure in the fight for the rights of those in exile.
