Police violence in Calais becomes big news in France

One of France's largest TV stations TF1 has just released a video composed of several clips from the work of Calais Migrant Solidarity (CMS). The police are shown pepper-spraying, being violent, abusive and unprofessional. This video combines several already high profile clips including the police playing loud music whilst raiding Africa House at night and the border police (PAF) punching an activist holding a video camera. A CMS activist talks to a radio interviewer about working on the ground in Calais and the use of video cameras in de-escalating violence towards migrants. A police spokesperson also attempts to claim that the police are highly professional whilst a clip of them playing football during a squat raid runs in the background.
