rumours of destruction of 'the jungle', migrant's camps in calais are looking likely for early next week

Following the announcement from Frech and Uk immigration
ministers, (Besson and Woolas) last week about £15million more to
strengthen the border, the news from Calais is that the destruction of
these camps is being planned by the French authorities and could happen as
soon as Tuesday 21st July, 2009. We call for an immediate stop to these
plans, they would serve to traumatise people and destroy the few
possessions that they have and will NOT solve the problem of people
migrating through Calais. The brutalisation of people
in Calais must be exposed to international attention and solidarity. The right wing media
and the anti-immigration, racist policies that it spreads can not be
allowed to dominate this debate.
