Is anything going on in oxford?
I have tried asking around but nobody seems to know.
Here is a list of local groups...perhaps there is one close to you?
UK wide/Main organising/sharing group here.
This group is based in Oxford:
Crying out for Calais
Supporting refugees in Molyvos and Lesbos:
Help for refugees in Molyvos
A list of things to send and if anyone knows someone going on holiday there, ask them to take some stuff.
Nice one Chapeltown.
Apparently it's going to be a permanent collection point until it's not needed
Members of Celtic FC's Green Brigade are taking a few vans down from Glasgow in October

Well done Celtic. Brilliant
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.
Hopefully there will soon be a more coherent plan for how to store and distribute donations so that nothing is going to waste and nobody is going without stuff that they need. We're going to meet up with some of the charities in Calais at the end of the month to try and organise this.
So for the time being, keep collecting stuff but maybe think more about storing stuff somewhere than finding a van to fill up ASAP.
Yep. 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
Can we change the title? The orig group has been renamed and this now seems to be a bigger conversation not just about that group?
Secours have a donated warehouse coming online in about a week iirc
Sorry to link to the Evening Fascist but...
CalAid: Hundreds descend on social centre in Dalston to donate goods for Calais refugees
Hundreds descend on Dalston social centre to donate goods for Calais
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.
Got this from CalAid:
(Tomorrow means this Monday)
Some photos. The "Hive" is an interesting place. Its old office block used as a social centre.
End of day celebration by volunteers:
"The Hive" kindly gave use of two floors to take in donated goods for CalAid.
A little bit of Leeds gathered this over two days and have suspended collections temporarily until it's sorted and shipped (tomorrow) and there's a couple of days breathing space.
All tents just about full
A couple of volunteers sorting and shifting
C4 report on Dalston Calaid donation day.
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....!?
Caravans for Calais started a few days ago
Caravans for Calais - soundcloud interview on Heart
