Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
British street artist Banksy has made a mural about Steve Jobs in the refugee camp in Calais. The deceased founder of Apple, himself the son of a Syrian immigrant, is pictured with a bag on his back and an old Macintosh computer in his right hand.
With this mural Banksy wants to make a statement. “We’re often led to believe migration is a drain on the country’s resources but Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian migrant“, the BBC quoted from his statement. “Apple is the world’s most profitable company, it pays over $7bn (£4.6bn) a year in taxes – and it only exists because they allowed in a young man from Homs.”
In the ‘jungle’ in the French port city live thousands of refugees who want to cross over to Britain.
