Book presentation in video


Café de Marcelin Albert à Argeliers vers 1910The author Jean Fournel who was a journalist at the regional daily " l'Eclair " (former name of Midi Libre) gave us a rare testimony. He described each character, habits, and the atmosphere of the villages in the South of France, in the early twentieth century and especially the organization of the Committee of Argeliers whose headquarters were located in Marcelin Albert's Café. This book censored at its publication was reprinted in an illustrated version. We could understand better how a village was able to organize a revolt, ready to topple the central government.


As a witness of the events, the author met Marcelin Albert and the "87". Over the days, he wrote all down in his notebooks : details , anecdotes and speeches that sustain his story in a context of proximity.
