Is anything going on in oxford?
When they say it's not advisable to just rock up in the jungle with a vanload of stuff they're not kidding. Your van will most likely get rushed, creating a situation that's potentially dangerous for you and for other people as well.I have just received a message from Calais. Secours Catholique are asking for a pause of a month for donations as they can't cope. There are plans for a storage facility in the London area and maybe one over there too.
It would be wise to call SC first if you have already made arrangements to go as they may be closed. It is not advisable to turn up with stuff straight to the refugee camp. URGENT PLEASE SHARE !
Secours have a donated warehouse coming online in about a week iircYep. There's a massive rush of 'give/travel NOW NOW NOW' but obvious issues with masses of people descending with good intentions at once. This isn't short term and will still be happening in a few months time and i imagine far longer term. Long/ish term storage seems to be the most requested item round here x
I was helping out at Dalston today. So many people came along to donate stuff that it took ages to carry it up the stairs and sort it out.Sorry to link to the Evening Fascist but...
CalAid: Hundreds descend on social centre in Dalston to donate goods for Calais refugees

Yes. Screenshot it and report it to the police, not Facebook.One of he pages I am on is getting a bit inundated with nutters. Lots of conspiraloon stuff, people obsessively trying to introduce mooncups to the refugees, emotional breakdowns about their efforts not being sufficiently appreciated...
Anyway- question from you seasoned campaigners. Is it true that a pet right wing tactic is to put up child porn then report it to Facebook? Someone is suggesting that porn posts shouldn't be reported as they will result in the page being closed....!?
