Seated in his office in Paris, one day of October 1971, Michel Debré, minister of the Defence declares: We choose the Larzac as it is a deprived land. With no prior dialogue, his decision to extend the military camp of the Larzac is made. The first reaction of the peasants is radical: "If they want our farms and lands, we'll leave them dead and we won't be the only dead around". He sets an unanimous wave of protestations and resistances; the beginning of an amazing struggle, that will last for ten years until the elections for Presidency of May 1981.
