  • Description

    After repeated clashes between police and demonstrators in which 60 persons were injured (Editors see 7300/60) French Governor-General Paul Delouvrier and 51 year-old General Jean Crepin, French Commander-in-Chief, Algeria, strongly guarded by troops, paid in the name of the French Government their Armistice Day tribute at the Algiers War Memorial - amid the continued booing and hisses of French settlers.

    General Crepin, one-time successor to General Massu, met with shouts of "Vive Massu." M. Delouvrier met with yells calling for his resignation. More yells were "Algerie Francaise" and "Hang de Gaulle."
    During the military parade, the crowds cheered the troops, shouting "The army is with us." Some people shouted "Long live Salan". General Salan, former C-in-C, Algeria, banned from returning to retirement in Algiers by the French Government, and currently in Spain, came out into the open, by issuing a manifesto in San Sebastian on this Armistic Day, to denounce President de Gaulle's policy for an eventual "Algerian Algeria."
    Throughout the military parade, security forces kept the crowd away from the precincts of the War Memorial where the shooting took place during the settler insurrection last January. But after the parade the clashes began again - in all, an Armistice Day of the most violent revolt against de Gaulle's authority since January.
