Calais Jungle refugees go on HUNGER STRIKE as they demand UK open its borders

3 Mar

The new note held by a migrant states: “We are on hunger strike because we left our countries to find our human rights and unfortunately here in Europe we find none.


“At 12 noon 2 March 2016 we stopped eating and sewed our lips together. Today, 3rd March two more people joined us in this action. We will continue not to eat until our demands are met.

“For the European Court of Human Rights to come to the jungle and meet us.

“We want to end the forced eviction in the jungle.

“We want an end of the use of tear gas.

“We want an end of the attacks by fascists. 

“We want all the borders to be opened.

“We feel nobody listens to us, so we will not eat until our demands are met. We take action on behalf of all the refugees in Europe.

“We will stop drinking in two days if nobody from the European Court of Human Rights comes to meet us.”
