From the Archives: riots broke out at the Invalides, during the demonstration against the First Employment Contract (CPE) in 2006.

Patrick Buisson, Nicolas Sarkozy’s former counselor , relates in his book “La Cause du Peuple” that the Minister of the Interior would have let “Blacks and French-Arabs’ gangs” assault “young white” demonstrators in order to cause difficulties to his Prime Minister and unofficial opponent Dominique de Villepin.
