I CARE - - French government is destroying homes, schools, and medical centre for 1,000 refugees


I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe: 15/2/2016- The French government has told over 800 refugees currently living in the so-called Calais Jungle that they will be expelled from the camp in the next few days. The planned clearance of the southern section of the camp will also involve the demolition of three mosques, one church, three schools, a women and children's center, youth center and legal lentre. Also going is the vaccination center credited with containing an outbreak of measles in the camp, the Jungle Books Library, a theatre and three hot food distribution points that currently serve 2,000 meals each day. In a statement, the French government estimates 800 to 1,000 refugees will be affected by the clearance, which they state will take place "within a week". If clear signs of movement are observed within the camp, a stay may be granted until the affected refugees have managed to salvage their shelters. However, aid organisations such as Help Refugees suggest the actual figure is likely to be twice as high, as around 2000 people currently live in the area earmarked for clearance.
