Today eight refugees IN EUROPE sewed their mouths shut in a heart wrenching protest against recent events in the Calais jungle.
Why? Because they have no voice. Because they left countries where they were being repressed and IN EUROPE find they still have no human rights. This is not supposed to happen. This, in the birthplace of the Human Rights Convention. What are we supposed to believe in when people are so desperate they are forced to resort to actions like these on our doorstep?
The eight men have said they won’t remove the stitches, or eat or drink, until the destruction of homes stops. They have no hope. We have no hope.
