A large group of illegal African migrants stormed Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport Sunday in protest of France’s deportation laws.

“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” one of the migrants reportedly yelled.

The protest was organized by an open borders group called Collectif La Chapelle Debout, which streamed the event live on its Facebook. The protestors referred to Air France as the “official deporter of the French state,” and demanded to speak with Edouard Philippe, French president Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister.

“Several hundred undocumented migrants invade Terminal 2 at Roissy airport to denounce evictions and the treatment of undocumented migrants. Use of tear gas by police officers. They want to talk to the CEO of Air France and Prime Minister Edouard Philippe,” said French journalist Remy Buisine.

The protest prevented travelers from boarding their flights at Europe’s second-largest international airport.
