SHOCKING footage has emerged revealing the trail of destruction left by migrants forced to live on the streets of Paris following a riot with police, The Sun reports. The video – shot by a French filmmaker – shows the aftermath of a raid on a camp with roads strewn with rubbish and make shift beds.
Groups of African migrants are forced to live on the streets using pieces of cardboard as mattresses and with their worldly possessions carried in plastic bags. The anonymous filmmaker wore a hidden camera as he recorded the scenes on Avenue de Flandre in the north of the French capital.
The clip – titled ‘Scenes from the apocalypse’ – even captures the migrants clashing with police in riot gear as they throw debris at one another. Cops were filmed using tear gas and protecting themselves with riot shields. The filmmakers blame the migrants – many of whom Sudanese and Eritrean – for ruining the iconic image of Paris, the Mail Online reports.
Generation Europe wrote: “The Paris you know or remember from adverts or brochures no longer exists. “While no part of Paris looks like the romantic Cliches in Hollywood movies, some districts now resemble post-apocalyptic scenes of a dystopian thriller.
“Scenes like this might spread to areas frequented by tourists, forever changing the last romantic parts of Paris that match what most people have in mind when they think of the iconic city.” The migrants were said to have been put on buses and taken to new accommodation.
A British tourist was interviewed by police in Calais earlier this week after a hit and run in which a migrant died. The motorist – who has not been named – is said to have swerved to avoid a gang trying to stop traffic on the A16.
