ONE YEAR IN THE JUNGLE (France)
For the majority of migrants, El Dorado lies in England, a mirage from which they cannot escape. But it's a shantytown that awaits them in Calais: the "New Jungle" as it's known here. This term, which may seem pejorative, comes from the Persian "jangal" meaning "forest", and was used by the first Afghans and Iranians to settle in various areas on the outskirts of Calais in the 2000s. This "New Jungle" became an obligatory stopover where people settled. Over 9,000 people are crammed together in deplorable living conditions. The shantytown was eventually dismantled in two stages. Migrants will be sent to reception centers all over France, or sent home with an OQTF.
