Hundreds of Calais residents marched through Paris on Monday to protest the deteriorating economic situation in their region, which they claim has been caused by the refugee crisis.

Many of the protesters were wearing T-shirts emblazoned with “I love Calais” and waving French flags while chanting slogans in support of their region. A delegation of local entrepreneurs went on to deliver a letter listing their demands to Jean-Marc Ayrault, one of Finance Minister Michel Sapin’s advisers.
