Summary
On October 17, 1961, about 30,000 Algerians, ostensibly French citizens, took to the streets of central Paris to protest an 8:30 curfew, put in place in response to repeated terrorist attacks by Algerian nationalists. The protesters were met by a police force determined to break up the demonstration and were beaten, shot, even drowned in the Seine. This video exposes the massacre and the cover-up.
