FRENCH AUTHORITIES CONFISCATE FOOD AND WATER

FRENCH AUTHORITIES CONFISCATE FOOD AND WATER FROM REFUGEES…

Nope, I’m not joking.

Today our team was in the Kids Cafe in the Calais Jungle (which provides free food for under 18’s for lunch and dinner), when a wall of riot police descended and closed off the entire area…

They proceeded to enter each restaurant and put all of the food into bin bags, arresting the restaurant owners, including Sikander, an afghan refugee and our good friend who runs the Kids Cafe, providing hundreds of children with a warm meal twice a day.

This was under the premise that the food was not ‘fit for consumption’…

This has to be the most counter-intuitive policy i’ve ever heard. Surely the authorities should be providing food and water for refugees rather than taking it away?

It just seems so ironic that THIS is the way the police handle health and safety in the camp, when thousands of people live there in shocking conditions, with minimal access to food, water and basic amenities. Why take away the little that they do have?
