JUNGLE CAMP EVICTIONS
“I listened to the BBC this evening quoting the French Authorities: “The evictions of the Calais camp have been completely successful”. It is a lie! There are hundreds of desperate people whose homes and possessions have been burned, who don’t trust the system of redistribution set up by the authorities and who haven’t taken buses to random centres across France. They have returned to the Jungle tonight to find refuge and what is left of their belongings. Their truth isn’t what you will hear in the press”.
