The Jungle camp in Calais - level 2
This news is about the southern part of the Calais migrant camp “the Jungle”. French authorities made people leave the area and they bulldozed it.
Some migrants and volunteers are not happy about this. The camp became the migrants’ home. People built schools, churches and mosques. Now, it is all gone. There are many children who are alone. People worry that they will get lost. The lives of many people can turn to chaos again.
The French authorities plan to move all the migrants to live in big white containers, but there may not be enough space for everybody.
Difficult words: authorities (the people in charge of a place), volunteer (a person who helps without being paid anything), container (a big box which people use to move things on big ships).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
What do you think about this situation for the migrants and for France?
