With an added twist, this time we’re asking you to bring a spare pair of shoes/a camera/mobile phone or water poof jacket for our collection for Calais Migrant Solidarity – and to donate any spare cash on the door.
Calais Migrant Solidarity work in collaboration with people who are trapped at the border between France and the UK. Many have traveled from countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Vietnam, Kurdistan, Palestine, Iraq, Somalia, Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea and Ethiopia, hoping to get to the UK they find themselves excluded at the British border. British immigration law states that you must be in the country to claim asylum but makes it impossible for non-EU citizens to enter the UK. This necessitates illegal entry for the majority of people wanting to claim asylum.
Having spent time in Calais speaking to the men and women on the ground this bizarre immigration rule escalates their risk of further oppression and violence. People live rough on the streets and put their lives at risk daily attempting to make the border crossing under lorries/across the ocean.
