“My name is Sannah and I am from Eritrea. I want to go to England because it is a good place. My country is bad, it kills us, it kills all the young people. No hope, no life. We know England, it is a good place so we want to go to England.
But Calais is bad, the police chase me, they beat me, I sleep on the grass near the Jungle. But I don’t sleep, not really. The police wake me and chase us away, the gas is bad. I am so tired, sometimes I feel I can not go on. My whole body hurts, my heart hurts.
I have been in prison three times. The first time the police pulled me backwards by my hair and dragged me down a road. They beat me in my stomach and I bled and bled and bled. They put me in prison and left me all night with no doctor. I was scared I would die. I have been in Libya for a long time and even in Libya they don’t do this to woman – only France. I will never stay in France.”
