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."
