A far-right French major has sparked outrage by storming into a squat and telling a family of Syrian refugees, ‘you are not welcome in this town’.
Robert Menard, a politician linked to the National Front party in Beziers, is shown marching into a squat surrounded by police, including an armed guard.
Angry that the refugees have allegedly broken in, 62-year-old Mr Menard uses a translator to say: ‘You are not welcome in this town. You came in this apartment breaking the door.’
So the Mayor catches flak for trying to evict squatters who broke into private property. Right.
