Jenny returns to the Jungle

On Thursday 18 February Jenny will again visit The Jungle, Calais.

She said: ‘What is happening at the Jungle, where thousands of people have been effectively abandoned by governments and are being helped to stay alive only by the selfless actions of volunteers, would be an unacceptable outrage anywhere. That it is happening on the doorstep of the UK – the world’s fifth-wealthiest state – and France, the sixth richest, makes it a scandal which should engage us all.’

Jenny will be accompanied by Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett, and hopes to learn more about the challenges overcome at the Jungle through the winter, and those problems still facing the more than 7,000 men, women and children stranded at the refugee camp.
