Calais at Christmas - a report

Christmas is a time for giving but not it seems in Calais. Where refugees lives continue to be a living hell.. The following is the first of a couple of reports, and thoughts about how we might build solidarity for some of the most serious and vulnerable ,yet resourceful and intelligent victims of war,globalisation more war and the war on terror.They have one final hurdle to surmount; British /French collabarative immigration policies which are destroying their basic refugee protection.

Conserving what for whom? Migration, Climate Change and Equal Rights.

Imagine the floods in Tewkesbury last year, were more widespread, and that you are you family, friends and neighbours had lost all your possessions as the waters rose. Rendered homeless you decide to move, to drier, warmer, safer parts. You choose to go to a place where you have some connections, to try and cope with the distress of losing everything and to try and rebuild your life.
