  • Description

    While the talks were going on the people of Paris moved easily through the boulevards; but later small groups began to assemble in preparation for a march to the centre of the city.

    Squads of riot police took up strategic positions, and mobile reinforcements arrived at tactical points. But the demonstrators carried out the wishes of the organisers - the Socialists, Christian Democrats, and some Radicals - and set out in an orderly manner to protest against General de Gaulle. They carried placards proclaiming "Long Live the Republic" and "Long Live de Gaulle". They marched thirty and forty abreast in a moving column that stretched for about two miles.

    Events are now moving to a climax with the resignation of M. Pflimlin and the steps that President Coty is taking to bring General de Gaulle to power.
