The Civil Fleet Podcast

Jan 21, 2022

In today's episode we speak with Clare Moseley, the founder of Care4Calais, a volunteer-run charity working with refugees in the UK, France and Belgium.

She talks to us about the charity's joint legal challenge with the Public and Commerical Services (PCS) Union against the UK government's proposed policy of pushing asylum seekers crossing the Channel back to France.

Clare also tells us about the dire situation people stuck in Calais face every day, and how this systematic abuse only serves to further damage already-traumatised people.

Here's a link to a story on The Civil Fleet on the possibility that the UK Border Force has already begun pushbacks in the Channel:
