Creating a Digital Community Radio Station in an informal Refugee Camp in Calais, France

Posted by Thomas Padilla on November 11, 2016

On the 24th October 2016, French Authorities began the final eviction phase of the camp in Calais. Many refugees have now been placed in CAO centres across France and are currently waiting on assessment of their asylum claims. New camps have sprung up along the Northern French coastline, some refugees continue to live around Calais in forest and wasteland areas. A process has been started for unaccompanied minors to travel to the UK under the Dubs Amendment for the 1200 children that lived in the camp alone.
