Yesterday, hundreds of undocumented migrants took control of Terminal 2 of the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris France. Approximately 500 migrants seized the terminal.
"France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!" one person can be heard yelling into a loudspeaker.
The protest was organized by the migrant support group "La Chapelle Debout," which said their members call themselves "Black Vests."
The group comes amid the country's months-long "Yellow Vests movement" over tax reforms; French citizens are required to carry yellow vests in their vehicles for emergencies. (source)
A quick-thinking person took video, which has been widely shared across Twitter.
