FRENCH activists have begun what they call a fightback against mass migration to a squalid camp in Calais.
‘This is our house’ French protestors take control of bridges
A statement from the group said European leaders have failed to protect people on both sides of the refugee crisis.
Attacks against the forces of the order, against motorists and truck drivers, riots in the city, total disintegration of the social and economic fabric – this is what has become the daily lives of the martyr city, with a terrible acceleration in recent weeks.
“This situation is the result of an irresponsible policy, which are guilty the national political leaders as Europeans, in Paris, Berlin and Brussels.
“Since these leaders refuse to protect people in restoring of borders, at the national level as European, then they will see the peoples erect barricades! Like this morning to calais.
“This is our house.”
The group also carried leaflets telling migrants to return home.
It states: “All accesses to Calais are blocked. You won’t pass, go back and go home.
“We won’t step back anymore.
“This is our country, get back to yours.”
Génération Identitaire said a group of 130 were involved in the rally against mass migration
On Friday, Xavier Bertrand, president of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie region, told the Guardian that France wants UK border guards to tell refugees that Britain is tightening asylum rules.
He said: “What we need now is UK border guards going through the camp at Calais every week telling the people that it is no longer the case that the UK is an El Dorado.”
Earlier this month hundreds of Calais residents arrived in Paris to protest against the deteriorating economic situation in their region, which they say has been caused by the migrant crisis.
