Convoy to Calais!


Hi all
We have just left a very charged and moving rally at Westminster for the Convoy, were our amazing speakers gave us messages of support and good luck
We are determined to get our aid through along with our message of compassion and solidarity. As John Rees from Stop the War said from the podium, 'We don't believe that most working people in this country are racists. Refugees are welcome here' . 
Here is all the last information you will need for the day. 
8:30am - Assemble in Whitehall
This is now more important than ever.
See Info Pack in the link below for more details. 

9:00am - Speeches from Richmond Terrace (opposite Downing Street)
9:15am - Photo call at Front of Convoy
9:30am - Convoy departs
Convoy will stay together and travel as much as possible in the slower lane.
Communication will be via text message to each vehicle along the way with updates on progress or with any information that needs to be despatched.
The Convoy will not stop until we reach Stop 24 Service Station located at Junction 11 M20 - 15 minutes from the Port of Dover.
From here we will organise our approach to the port
If we are refused entry to the Ferry by French authorities we will drive out and rejoin the back of the queue and keep trying to enter until this is no longer possible.
If we are still refused entry we will then reassemble  the Convoy, drive back to London and set down outside the French Embassy at 58 Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7JT.
If we are allowed on the ferry, the plan for holding an event outside the camp will be implanted.
13:55 Ferry Departs.
16:00 (French Time) Ferry Arrives Calais.
Convoy Heads to the 'Convoy Meeting Point' which is Point 9 on page 3 of your info pack.  
16:30 - 17:30 - Final drop off aid/aid transfer to depot.
17:30 Solidarity Event begins.
21:00 Convoy departs.
22:40 Ferry departs.
Any questions please contact
Please remember your passport and something to eat and drink!

See you on the road to Calais.
