Migrants GoPro trying to sneak into the UK via Calais. Banksy-has-created-a-graffiti-version-of-steve-jobs-outside-calais-refugee-camp-711140. This is the latest work from street artist Banksy, who has taken on the migrant crisis in a new mural at a refugee camp in France. The elusive graffiti artist has depicted the late Apple guru Steve Jobs – whose biological father was from Syria – carrying a black rubbish bag and an early model of the Macintosh computer. Jobs was adopted. His biographer, Walter Isaacson, has described the computer genius’s biological father, Abdulfattah Jandali, as a graduate student who came from a prominent family and studied in the US. Bristol-based Banksy, best known for his subversive street art, has never disclosed his identity. Pictures of the artwork have also been included on his website.

Banksy has travelled the world to comment on war, child poverty and the environment. The Jobs artwork is not Banksy’s only connection with Calais. A dozen homes, a community area and a children’s play park have been created from the surplus materials by the “leftover crew” in a project dubbed Dismal Aid.

The boys who could see England. Part 1: On dry land A gale was blowing from the south-west as the elderly architect put on his jacket and rubber boots and went outside. Down in the bay, four-metre-high waves crashed against the cliffs and sent spray hundreds of metres across the grazing land at Lista, on Norway’s southernmost tip. The first thing the architect noticed when he approached the sea was a wetsuit that lay stretched out on the small patch of grass between the rocks. It was rare for him or anyone else in the village to walk there. The wetsuit could have been there for a long time. He could smell seaweed and the sea and a faint, sickly scent of something else. The wetsuit was partially inside out and wedged inside the legs was a pair of blue flippers.

How we came to be there. Why I donated my bike to people at Calais refugee camp | Environment. Critical Mass is not a conventionally political movement. In cities around the world, the monthly bicycle event sees cyclists – from London to New York and Sydney – convene in a regular place, on the last Friday of the month, and ride the streets of their city in the safety and camaraderie of a group. With its mildly anarchic origins in the idea that cities should be designed around human beings rather than motor vehicles, and that those human beings have a right to free movement on the roads of their cities, perhaps I should not have been so surprised to learn London’s August ride would see bicycles taken from the capital to Calais, where they would be donated to people at the refugee camp known as the Jungle.

There is often a healthy tendency for scepticism where simple acts of charity are concerned, and so too a worry that donations can upset the local community and barter relations. Where bicycles and life in the refugee camp are concerned, however, the equation is quite simple. Calais migrants: life in the Jungle – video | UK news.

Calais: Migrants frustrated at 'zero' crossings to Britain clash with police. Migrants and security forces clashed for a third consecutive night in Calais, as tensions are running high across makeshift camps in the French city, following a security clampdown that authorities claim has quashed illegal crossings to the UK.

About 250 riot police officers fired tear gas and water cannon to quell unrest near the so-called "jungle" encampment in the northern port. France's interior ministry said the confrontation was "calmer" than those of the previous two nights, when a total of 43 officers reported injuries from rocks and other objects hurled at them. The incidents came as frustrations were growing in the camps, currently housing a record 6,000 people, as tightened controls on access to the port and Eurotunnel have made it significantly harder for migrants to cross to Britain.

"Since 21 October ... no migrant has crossed to Britain," she told La Voix du Nord newspaper. "The message we want to convey to migrants is: you must reflect on your path. " Salam.

Comments (0) The Cornishman reporter Hazel Murray recounts her venture into Calais's refugee camp this weekend; LEAVING the ferry after arriving at Calais on Sunday night, I thought about what the next 24 hours would have in store as we snaked our way through the port and reached our hostel, due to venture to one of the largest refugee camps in the Western world the following morning.

On arrival, the town of Calais almost seemed bereft of local people, let alone refugees, and I couldn't begin to picture what the camp, known as The Jungle, was like. Our hostel was full of volunteers determined to make a difference, beaming with an infectious, almost party-like attitude. If they hadn't told me of the long hours spent in the warehouse or distributing aid to the desperate people of The Jungle, I may have mistaken them for care-free travellers, rather than the likes of paramedics, architects and nurses, putting aside their comfortable lives to help those in need.
