La Lutte Du Foyer Albert Thomas


Le 22 décembre 2016, le tribunal de grande instance de Tours (Indre et Loire) a ordonné la liquidation judiciaire d'un foyer d'hébergement avec un ordre brutal de fermeture pour le 26 décembre.

Quid des 36 hommes hébergés ici ? Que vont devenir ces personnes relevant du droit commun (SDF), demandeurs d’asile, réfugiés sous protection internationale…? Pourquoi le problème n’a-t’-il pas été anticipé ? Pourquoi fermer brutalement un foyer, récemment rénové et mis aux normes, qui a une capacité d’hébergement de 36 personnes, alors que des gens dorment actuellement dehors, au plus dur de l’hiver ? Un comité de soutien se constitue aussitôt, composé des ex-salariés, des migrants hébergés et de citoyens qui vont engager un bras de fer avec la Mairie de Tours et la Préfecture d’Indre et Loire pour que les personnes victimes de cette décision soient traitées dignement dans cette période chaotique. Trois mois de tournage en immersion au foyer Albert Thomas à Tours. Un microcosme au coeur duquel nous pouvons observer bien des enjeux qui bousculent aujourd’hui notre société.
