It was a quiet day in the camp as the fascists conducted a rolling road block around Calais’ euro tunnel. In the evening as the sun set and the refugees played cricket and football on the strip between the camp and the motorway.
Out of nowhere 4 CRS ( French riot police) vans pulled up and 4 squads got out and move the refugees back into the camp. Every one fell back to a bank around the camp as the police indiscriminately started to fire a huge volly of c.s. gas into the crowd. The whole camp was engulfed in a thick smog of the toxic gas.
Later that night, as people where settling down, around 10.30 pm the popping of the c.s. guns started up again, and as it was dark, some footage was available in this place where no one wants to be on camera. Here’s some pix for now… Videos up tomorrow eve.
What I cannot cope with seeing, is the incredulous looks on the faces of these poor people, who have fled their HOME lands around the world due to western aggression, to have to come and try and scratch a living in a filthy asbestos dump, just to be shelled with c.s. gas, like they are a criminals… !!!
‘Why do they do this’ one man asked me as we conversed over the screen in front of us…
What would you have said to him?
