Translation by Google Translate (with modifications):
In 1907, Béziers was the scene of exceptional events related to the crisis of viticulture. On 12 May, over 120,000 people marched in the city and 21 June in protest against the shooting at Narbonne, a half thousand soldiers of the 17th infantry regiment mutinied, camping on Paul Riquet Aisles (a commons between opposing lanes of Boulevard Paul Riquet), greeted with sympathy by population. After their surrender, the mutineers were transferred to Gafsa in southern Tunisia.
