French authorities want to evacuate hundreds from migrant camp
French authorities, through the government local representative, Fabienne Buccio, announced on Friday their will to move up to 1000 migrants currently living in the south part of the “Jungle” camp nearby Calais.
The inhabitants of the camp have one week to take up places that will be made available.
Around 4,000 migrants – a majority of them from North Africa, the Middle East and Afghanistan – live in the makeshift camp from where they launch their often desperate efforts to reach Britain, across the Channel.
Their presence is the origin of tensions between French and British governments and several transformations were already performed by the French government. This includes the creation of a new center of 125 converted shipping containers that are not very popular amongst refugees.
Indeed, they are only conceived for sleeping and require their palm prints to be taken to move in and out: a problem for those populations fearing that it could impede their efforts to reach Britain and apply for asylum there.
