Jude Law has visited the Calais refugee camp several times in the last few weeks. On Sunday, he took part in a peformance – alongside refugees, Juliet Stevenson, Tom Odell, Sir Tom Stoppard, Matt Berry, Shappi Khorsandi and Toby Jones – aimed at raising awareness of the plight of unaccompanied minors in the camp and the impact the planned demolition of the south part of the camp will have.
An unprecedented coalition of over 145 well-known figures from cinema, television, theatre, art, business, sport and literature as well as Help Refugees, Letters Live and Citizens UK have published an open letter to David Cameron calling for urgent action to save the #childrenofcalais.

We would not be able to do our work without your support and kindness. Many of the refugees we help are fleeing the conflict zones of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Others are trying to escape political oppression in countries like Eritrea. All are human beings like us. As well as providing immediate physical assistance, we want to help refugees maintain their dignity.
