海峽移民。福克斯通為大規模溺水事件周年紀念日舉行守夜活動

在英吉利海峽發生移民集體溺水事件一年後,舉行了一次燭光守夜活動。

2021年11月24日,一艘載有33人的船在英吉利海峽沉沒,只留下兩名倖存者。

死亡人數包括21名男子、7名婦女--其中一名是孕婦--和3名兒童。有四具屍體從未被找到。

人們聚集在福克斯通的海灘上,紀念一周年。

守夜活動的組織者布里奇特-查普曼說。"我們今晚在這裡是為了紀念他們,紀念所有的人,並要求我們為人們提供安全的路線,使他們不覺得他們除了在船上冒生命危險之外沒有其他選擇。"

越來越多的證據表明,法國的救援部門未能對他們從船上的移民那裡收到的電話作出充分的回應。

死者的親屬已經寫信給總理里希-蘇納克要求伸張正義。

今年到目前為止,有超過42,000人乘坐小船穿越英吉利海峽,而2021年全年的人數超過28,000。

A candlelight vigil has been held to mark a year since a migrant mass drowning in the English Channel.

On 24 November 2021, a boat carrying 33 people sank in the Channel, leaving only two survivors.

The death toll included 21 men, seven women - one of which was pregnant - and three children. Four bodies were never recovered.

People gathered on the beach at Folkestone to mark the first anniversary.

Bridget Chapman, organiser of the vigil, said: "We're here tonight to remember them, to remember all of them, and to demand that we have safe routes available for people, so that they don't feel they have no other option but to risk their lives in a boat."

Growing evidence suggests French rescue services failed to respond adequately to the phone calls they received from the migrants on the boat.

Relatives of those who died have written to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak demanding justice.

So far this year more than 42,000 people have crossed the English Channel in small boats, compared with over 28,000 for the whole of 2021.
