France sends 1,000 refugees packing from jungle camp

About 1,000 refugees putting up at a makeshift jungle camp in Calais, France have been given the marching orders to leave due to the fact that the camp is not conducive enough for human habitation.

An official in France’s northern Pas-de-Calais region announced that about 1,000 refugees living in the “Jungle” camp in Calais must leave their makeshift dwellings, because their living there is undignified.

“It’s time to tell the migrants of Calais who live in undignified conditions and give Calais an image that isn’t dignified either, that we have a solution for each of you,” said Fabienne Buccio said on Friday.
Buccio said her agents will explain to refugees “what we expect” of them – to choose to live in heated containers set up last month on the edge of the camp that can hold 1,500 people, or agree to be sent to centres around France.
Continuing, Buccio said authorities will visit on Monday to advise those affected that they must leave and they will be given a week to make the choice.
Scores of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other war-torn and poverty-ridden countries make their way to northern France in the hope of making it across the English Channel to Britain via ferry and other means.
