LONDON:-
British street artist Banksy's dystopian theme park Dismaland was being dismantled Monday before being shipped to a migrant camp near Calais to make shelters, organisers said. Featuring a ruined fairytale castle, a crashed Cinderella coach and miserable stewards wearing Mickey Mouse ears, the "bemusement park" was designed to satirise commercialised tourist attractions. After five weeks and 150,000 visitors, the attraction in the faded seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare in southwest England shut down late Sunday.–AFP
It is now being taken apart and parts of it will be sent to a migrant camp in Calais, where thousands of people from troubled countries like Syria are living in squalid conditions and hoping to cross into Britain.
