It's rare enough to be stressed.

While the basins of Sainte-Soline (Deux-Sèvres) were the site of violent clashes between demonstrators and peacekeepers on Saturday, the Minister of the Interior made a mea culpa in the organization of the maintenance


the order, which has aroused a good deal of political and associative criticism for two days.

"a real escalation of violent police repression"

and "

the excessive use of tear gas canisters, of disencirclement (...) which is not at the level of a democracy.


In Sainte-Soline, orders were not fully respected,

recognized the first cop in France.

These quads, which we see arriving, were used to throw tear gas canisters to repel people.

There were two LBD launchers, it is totally prohibited, these gendarmes will be suspended.

"I have sanctioned many police and gendarmerie officials for the three years that I have been at the Ministry of Interior.”

unprecedented security device"

against 1,000 radical individuals, Gérald Darmanin recalled that nearly 900 police and gendarmes have been injured for a week.

Everyone should unanimously say to themselves 'let's support the police and the gendarmes, punish people who do not respect the uniform and their honor and also let's attack the Ministry of the Interior...' But that's is normal, I play politics

”, puts Gérald Darmanin into perspective.

And to add: “

The vast majority of police officers are fathers and mothers (…) who take it seriously [face] because they are attacked politically.
