This comes as violence in the Calais refugee camp intensifies. Syrian refugee Majd said attacks by French fascists have increased in recent weeks.

Majd: "There is so much violence, from the police and from the fascists. If you went to the hospital, you will see a lot of people have been injured because of the police and the fascists, some really, really serious injuries. I mean, they need operations, and some people could die. Some refugees could die. And the hospital is full of refugees now."

To see our full interview with Majd and other refugees in Calais, as well as our interview with British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, go to our website
