It all started in July 2018. Groups of migrants coming from Africa endeavouring to cross the border with France started arriving at Irun train station. They would sleep in the street. The NGOs working in the town succeeded in convincing groups of squatters to react and lend them their places. This wave of generosity spread to the people of Irun.
