Posted on donderdag, juli 16, 2015 in Tinkebell's Video's

Some of the tents the refugees live in during the period (sometimes over 5 years!!) they try to get on a truck/the train/a boat to the UK… Right now there are approximately 2000 people, but sometimes the amount of refugees living here is around 4000…

Finding refugee camp ‘the jungle’ in Calais

Posted on donderdag, juli 16, 2015 in Tinkebell's Video's

Right now approximately 2000 refugees are staying at a camp ‘The Jungle’ in Calais, France. Every day they try to jump on a truck, the train or a boat to the UK. There used to stay 4000 refugees, but during the recent strikes in Calais trucks were forced to stand still in front of the tunnel, so it became less difficult to jump on one of the trucks and there were simply not enough police officers to catch them all. In that period approximately 1000 refugees found their way to the UK.
On July 14 (day of freedom!) we went looking for this camp. (The day after we visited the camp) What you see in this film are refugees on their way from the camp to the tunnel, a 2 hour walk. Every day they try again..

Refugees trying to get on a truck to the UK, in Calais (France)

Posted on donderdag, juli 16, 2015 in Tinkebell's Video's

Everyday many refugees from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Syria, Afghanistan and many more countries are trying to get on one of the trucks to the UK. The trucks are transported on a train through the tunnel from Calais to Dover. The night before I filmed this, one of the refugees was electrocuted while standing on one of the trucks: He was hit by one of the electricity cables above the train. The day after I filmed this, someone died trying to jump on the train..
