Drive by police pepper spray attack on migrant women at Calais

Date:

Last week some of the Ireland to Calais refugee solidarity convoy were on the road in the vicinity of the Calais migrant camp when they witnessed and recorded a pepper spray drive by attack by the French police on a group of women standing by the road side.

"Our footage of the French Police using tear gas on two of the Jungle* women completely unprovoked. This footage shows the French police casually rolling down their car window and spraying two women who had just crossed a road. ..

People are people, race, religion, refugee, migrant it doesn't matter you are either human or you are not. And if you are human then you have human rights"

The large squatted migrant camp at Calais is nicknamed 'La Jungle' by everyone including its residents
