Influx of hate videos directed at migrants, and the deportee who got off the plane
Issued on: Modified:
A weekly news show produced with photos, videos and personal accounts from France 24 Observers around the world - all checked by our staff here in Paris.
Story 1: France
This footage was filmed by angry residents who say they live in the French city of Calais. They've filmed themselves hurling insults and threats at the region's many migrants, who stay there while attempting to secure passage to England. More and more videos like this are showing up online, especially after the far-right party Le Front National won recent elections. It has our Observer, who works with migrants, worried.
Story 2: France
Sometimes, it pays off to fight until the very last minute. This man, who was being deported from France, won over the support of passengers on his plane and was allowed to disembark.
