Alt-Sheff News http://alt-sheff.org/rss_news.php The guide to Sheffield's radical, alternative, ethical business and groups Winter appeal for refugees in and around Calais http://alt-sheff.org/stories/497/ http://alt-sheff.org/stories/#497/ November/December 2017 *** Stand Up To Racism and Care4Calais are organising a winter appeal for refugees still living in Calais and its surrounding area, or in Paris or Brussels. The destruction of the "Jungle" camp by French authorities has not ended the refugee crisis, it has worsened conditions as the winter gets harsher. The British government has equally failed to carry out its responsibilities to refugees. For example, it has taken only a small fraction of the unaccompanied children agreed under the "Dubs" amendment (suggested by Alf Dubs, himself a survivor of the Nazi Holocaust, thank to the Kindertransport).A delegation to Calais is being organised for Saturday 9th December. Please get in touch if you may be able to offer help in any way. Donations can be made online at Care4Calais.org. To download a petition and other leaflets, see StandUpToRacism.org.uk/resources
