Afghan jungle destroyed

Today police came to an Afghan jungle and cut up their tents & tarps and arrested 5 people. Council workers then came and took everything – bags, blankets, clothes, tents, tarps, cooking pot, shoes, book etc – and took them to the dump. It was pouring with rain, people were left with no shelter, no blankets and none of their clothes except what they were wearing.

Since the inquiry into policing in Calais taken on by France’s ‘Human Rights Defender’ the cops are meant to have stopped destroying, vandalizing or stealing peoples belongings. But still it continues…

Some of people’s shelter and belongings turned into a trash pile at the déchetterie (dump)…
