The Calais “Jungle” is the nickname given to a refugee and migrant encampment in the vicinity of Calais, France, where migrants and refugees live. Many living in this camp attempt to illegally enter the UK via the Port of Calais or the Eurotunnel by stowing away on lorries, ferries, cars, or trains traveling to the UK. The camp gained global attention during the European refugee and migrant crisis when the population of the camp grew and French authorities carried out evictions.

Calais’ “jungle”, a sprawling camp now home to up to 10,000 migrants hoping to reach Britain, is to be totally torn down “by the end of the year”, the French government confirmed on Friday night.

However, truckers, local farmers and businesses said that despite the pledge they will go ahead with a planned operation to block the A16 motorway to and from the Channel port and Eurotunnel site on Monday.

“It would be better if they put off their trip as I can guarantee it will be a black day in terms of travel. The truckers will set of two convoys from Boulogne and Dunkirk and then block Calais. Everything will be stuck,” said a local police source.

 

Alors que les autorités françaises sont déterminées à démanteler la “Jungle” de Calais, la tension ne cesse de monter autour du camp. Démolir le camp, et ensuite? Le démantèlement n’est pas une solution, et les réfugiés “libérés” devront être abrités ailleurs, estime Julie Lavayssière de l’association Utopia56 dans un entretien à Sputnik.

PHILIPPE HUGUEN Calais: Cazeneuve marche sur des œufs Selon le ministre de l’Intérieur Bernard Cazeneuve, le gouvernement poursuivra, et avec la plus grande détermination, le démantèlement de la “Jungle” de Calais. Mais la démolition du camp est-elle vraiment une solution? Mme Lavayssière ne le pense pas. “Cela ne ferait qu’éclater la Jungle en des dizaines de petits camps autour. Le problème serait toujours le même, par contre le travail des associations, de la municipalité et de la police n’en serait que plus compliqué”. D’autant plus que ces gens ne vont pas partir et qu’ils demanderont l’asile, dit en écho Maya Konforti de l’association “l’Auberge des migrants”.

An outpatients service for immigrants in Perugia reccommended by ​Catholic doctors (amci) and Caritas. To pursue the matter at the conference in honor of Vittorio Trancanelli, 23 June, came to Perugia, Riccardo Poli, medical director at Prato, founder of the medical center for immigrants in Florence known as “the clinic of the Stenone”, the whose clinic several years ago was named after the doctor Vittorio Trancanelli Perugia, a sign of understanding and closeness between Florence and Perugia mentioned by Professor Fausto Santeusanio. “I could not come, Poli said, remembering his long friendship with the Archbishop. Gualtiero Bassetti when he was still in Florence, and that this clinic for immigrants know the story well. Even for this Mgr. Bassetti convincingly supports the initiative which it wishes to be a work “sign” in addition to those already implemented by Caritas. The intervention by Riccardo Poli was like a journey through the past twenty years. A relatively short time in which there have been radical changes in the legislation on immigrants. Poli recalled the beginning of the surgery of Stenone, when Msgr. Bassetti was vicar general of the diocese of Florence. It was the early 90’s, there was the Martelli Law and no medical care was granted to immigrants. Many doctors began to provision by a voluntary service and a lay association was founded, although very close to Christianity, to accommodate medical or non-believers of other faiths. The wives of doctors’ office, the drugs were applied to the pharmaceutical and private laboratories every week for years have given free samples for analysis. The experience of Florence was born after that of Rome had been active since 1981. In 1997 things changed, reminded Poli, with health care reform desired by the Minister Bindi, who wanted the same Poli consultant to the Ministry. We had to change mentalities Poli said recalling for example the work of mediation with the Ministry of the Interior that raises the problem of “traceability” of foreigners without papers. It was not easy, but in law went through the line of those who supported the obligation “not to report” illegal immigrants to the police except in cases provided for the Italians themselves. So, after the State ensured health care for immigrants, the doctors decided to focus on the Stenone dentistry, general medicine and pediatric surgery, or offering a specialist service on the one hand and the other a general assumption for those who may not have the “family doctor”. Contrary to what is feared, said Poli, immigrants do not suffer and do not carry exotic diseases, but more often they get sick of smoking, and stress that is leading to reactive depression, creating the phenomenon of “migrant exhausted.” “I think today to make medicine for the immigrant is easier,” concluded Poli, because, he added, “makes no sense to think of a specialist, but should focus on general pediatric medicine and dentistry because illegal immigrants can not get the medical family or in programs of prevention “. The key, he added, is to have a relationship with the local health authorities, a Memorandum of Understanding that allows to have the recipe and the cup.

Daniela Monni, director of Caritas dicoesana, recalled that in Perugia had been opened many years ago, a clinic for immigrants who then was closed and not reopened because there was no need. “Remember Trancanelli Vittorio – he added – means remembering a way of being, a way” to doctors “who provide the other with their lives.” What and how to act today, on the face of health care to immigrants, are the themes on which the AMCI and Caritas are now considering.
