CALAIS CHILDREN: A CASE TO ANSWER
(Sue Clayton, UK 62 min 2017)
on Thursday 22nd February at 7.30 in St. Mary of Charity Church, Faversham.
Admission £5 to be paid on the door. All proceeds to Sue Clayton’s work providing legal representation for the Calais Children. Sue will be available for a short Q&A session after the film.
As the Calais jungle was set to be razed in October 2016, there were over 1900 unaccompanied minors stranded there – many of whom had a legal case to enter the UK. Sue fought to get these children recognsed and their cases heard. But with the camp soon to go up in flames, could she do it in time? and what would happen to the children if not?
What happened to them next is a shameful indictment of the UK’s human rights record, as the young people suffered delays, denials and dismissal from the UK government, and were finally left abandoned in France with no support at all.
CALAIS CHILDREN: A CASE TO ANSWER follows the young people over the year since they left the Jungle. We speak to Lord Dubs, the volunteer groups, and the lawyers with whom Sue is challenging the Home Office’s actions in the High Court in early 2018. She goes on supporting and fighting for the kids – with your help.
