Protest in Calais – level 1
Thousands of migrants move to Calais, France. They run away from war and poverty in their countries. However, the situation is not good for the French people.
The migrants are in a big camp. People call it the jungle migrant camp. People destroy a half of it. Politicians say that they want to destroy the second half. They do not say when they will do this. More than 7,000 migrants live in that half of the camp.
Some French people are angry with their politicians. They say that the politicians do not do anything. They protest.
A big group of trucks goes on the road. They move very slow. They slow down the traffic.
Difficult words: poverty (the situation of being poor – having no money), destroy (break something completely), politician (a “boss” of a country).
