France: 'The Jungle' Migrant Camp

France: 'The Jungle' Migrant Camp
"Plan will proliferate a multitude of mini-Calais throughout the country."

by Soeren Kern  •  September 30, 2016 at 5:00 am
  • In 2001 alone, 54,000 people "attacked" the Channel Tunnel terminal in Calais and 5,000 had gotten through.
  • Migrants evicted from Calais moved to Paris and established a massive squatter camp at the Jardins d'Eole, a public park near the Gare du Nord station, from where high-speed Eurostar trains travel to and arrive from London. The area has become a magnet for human traffickers who charge migrants thousands of euros for fake travel documents, for passage to London.
  • The President of the Alpes-Maritimes region, Eric Ciotti, criticized the government's "irresponsible" plan to relocate migrants in Calais to other parts of France. He said the plan would "proliferate a multitude of small Calais, genuine areas of lawlessness that exacerbate lasting tensions throughout the country."
  • A whistleblower reported that volunteer aid workers at "The Jungle" were forging sexual relationships with migrants, including children. "Female volunteers having sex enforces the view (that many have) that volunteers are here for sex," he said.

After being pelted with stones and other objects, police responded with tear gas and water cannon. (Image source: RT video screenshot)
French President François Hollande has vowed "definitively, entirely and rapidly" to dismantle "The Jungle," a squalid migrant camp in the northern port town of Calais, by the end of this year.
Hollande made the announcement during a September 26 visit to Calais — but not to the camp itself — amid growing unease over France's escalating migrant crisis, which has become a central issue in the country's presidential campaign.
The French government plans to relocate the migrants at the camp to so-called reception centers in other parts of the country. But it remains unclear how the government will prevent migrants from returning to Calais.
Sceptics say the plan to demolish "The Jungle" is a publicity stunt that will temporarily displace the migrants but will not resolve the underlying problem — that French officials refuse either to deport illegal migrants or else to secure the country's borders to prevent illegal migrants from entering France in the first place.

[Re:'Veiled Woman Assassinates ISIS Jihadis at Checkpoint']: God Bless and protect her-keep those bullets flying.
[Re:'Saudis Petition King to End Male Guardianship']: I wouldn't hold out much hope for this petition. The "Royal family" may give it lip service but it will take a fundamental shift in thinking to implement it and that is unlikely to occur. Do not forget that over 4,500 Islamic Scholars and Imams are imprisoned in Saudi Arabia for opposing the ultra restrictive House of Saud. Their position of power is dependent on their brutal police state and the support of US and UK governments.
