1907 - 2007

— [Béziers Remembers] —

En 1907, Béziers a été le théâtre d'evénements exceptionnels liés à la crise de la viticulture. Le 12 mai, plus de 120000 personnes défilent en ville et le 21 juin, pour protester contre les fusillades de Narbonne, un demi-millier de soldats du 17e régiment d'infanterie, mutinés, campent sur les allées Paul Riquet, accueillis avec sympathie par la population. Après leur reddition, ces mutins sont transférés à Gafsa dans le sud Tunisien.

After their surrender, the mutineers were transferred to Gafsa in southern Tunisia.
