Mohammed Hamed, who crossed 9 months ago, has been arrested.
For those of you who know Calais, his two little brothers are still there and do translation in the medical caravans- he turned up for his regular sign in session (he lives with a mate of mine) and was arrested, taken from Wales to a detention centre in Devon and is to be flown out next week. His solicitor hasn't even got the paperwork yet- so next to no time to appeal.
Everyone is devastated- the family he lives with have three young children and they don't understand where he has gone. He was costing the state nothing, was learning English, was starting to get over the unimaginable trauma he suffered. It's horrific.
Please tweet easy jet and see if they will refuse to take him, and sign the (pretty pointless) petition. The easyjet thing will make most difference. Flight is U28871 from Gatwick on 7th and he is afghan

Probably because of the hassle it causes them at customs going to dover and possibility of fines if a migrant sneaks their way onto their truck and is found. I haven't looked to see if they've made any statements.Why are french lorry drivers protesting the presence of the migrant camp in Calais?
A combination of the general disruption to their business but also a growing concern for the safety of their drivers. There are people smuggling gangs operating in the area blocking roads and threatening drivers regardless of whether the lorry is even crossing the channel. The lorries are slashed and the goods inside damaged.Why are french lorry drivers protesting the presence of the migrant camp in Calais?
I'm sorting out a crew to salvage tents, sleeping bags etc from Leeds Festival tomorrow afternoon - Bank HOliday Monday.
If anyone's in the Leeds area and available from 1.30pm-9.30pm and up for a mission I have a few spare spaces in our van for it.
Meeting at Unit 3-4 Evans Business Centre, Burley Road, Leeds, LS4 2pu at 1.30pm to head up to the site to be on site at 3pm, and finishing back at the warehouse around 9.30pm after emptying vans etc. Or I can potentially collect from train station, headingley etc.
Please pm me your contact details if you're up for helping.
We have around 25 people up for the mission so far, so hopefully we can get a decent load of tents from it, but another few hands would be even better.
far worse, looked like 90% left their tents and some of their kit.How did the collection go, are the festival goers of Leeds as lazy as the Glastonbury lot?
Justification to close the jungle. Non stop.
May be around 10-15 crs van. On exit road from motorway and alongside motorway in front of the camp.

Looks like she has been there already and got the story she was looking for. Twat.Should anyone be in Calais tomorrow morning, that 'orrible cunt Katie Hopkins will be reporting from the jungle for LBC's Nick Ferrari show.
Of course any normal human being wouldn't fail to be horrified at the sight of a ramshackle refugee camp in Northern Europe, obviously she'll be an exception. But if anyone is there, rather than just stoving her head in with a brick, perhaps she could be shown that these are just normal people in a shit situation? Probably asking too much I know.
