The president of the Salam association, which helps migrants on the Opal Coast, reacted on franceinfo to the sinking of a boat in the English Channel on Tuesday.
“It’s so horrible that there are no words”, reacted Wednesday, October 28 on franceinfo Jean-Claude Lenoir, president of the Salam association, which helps migrants on the Opal Coast. Tuesday morning, the sinking of a migrant boat off Loon-Plage, near Dunkirk, left four dead, including two children aged five and eight. The tragedy also left 14 injured, including one in serious condition and eight in a state of hypothermia. They were taken care of in hospitals in Calais and Dunkirk.
“Currently, there are attacks in France. Our migrant friends are leaving their country because, on a daily basis, there are the same attacks and we are not able to make room for them”, Jean-Claude Lenoir testified. These castaways were trying to cross the English Channel aboard a fishing boat.
“I blame the politicians a lot”, denounced Jean-Claude Lenoir. “Everyone knows that migrants have no solution in France. And for 20 years, the same representatives of the State have been lying, claiming that there are solutions and causing these tragedies. That is why we are very angry with them for their lies, for assuming their inhumanity. “
