On the evening of October 17, 1961 about 30,000 Algerians, ostensibly French citizens, descended upon the boulevards of central Paris to protest an 8:30 curfew. The curfew was in response to repeated terrorist attacks by Algerian nationalists in Paris and other French cities. They were met by a police force determined to break up the demonstration. Demonstrators were beaten, shot, even drowned in the Seine. This video exposes the massacre, and the cover-up.
