It is about the current situation in Calais, some news and general stuff about the city.

short clipping:

“OVER 2000 MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE LIVING AGAIN IN THE CALAIS JUNGLES WITHOUT EVEN WATER, NOR ENOUGH FOOD, TENTS, ETC.
There are over 2000 migrant people in Calais, more than in 2009 , and their number is rising. The main difference is that there are many more women and children now. They are living in makeshift camps in appalling conditions. Calais jungle is back, and full of people. Most of them are refugees from the most war torn countries in the world. The local associations who support the migrants are struggling to cope as there is not enough food, not enough tents, not enough blankets, nor clothes, nor shoes. People are hungry all the time and in most cases they don’t even have access to water. With winter coming the situation, already more than critical, will become untenable. The coming winter is to be extremely cold, according to forecasts.”
