Squatters seek to maintain alternative community.

Riot police in France are again out in force today - in an operation to clear a protest camp that has left ten people injured.  

2500 officers have been mobilied to oversee the clearing of the squat in Notre-Dame-des Landes. The camp was built ten years ago to block the construction of an airport.

Plans to build the airport have now been dropped - but the activists want to maintain their alternative community.
