In Poitiers, "in what police described as an organized attack, the band shattered
store windows, damaged the facades of several banks and spray-painted
anarchist slogans on government buildings. Aiming even at the
historical heritage of this comfortable provincial town 200 miles
southwest of Paris, they fractured a plaque commemorating Joan of Arc's
interrogation here in 1429 and -- in Latin -- scrawled 'Everything belongs to everybody'
on a stone baptistery that is one of the oldest monuments in Christendom." The folks who did this--between 150 and 300-- ("we will destroy your morbid world" was spray-painted on a wall) are called ultra-leftists in the piece.
