This chapter recounts the time when René Guénoun was accused of starting a riot in Oran, Algeria. On July 14, 1936, around noon, several cars were attacked by a group of young men throwing stones, causing some injuries and some damaged property. Three supposed ringleaders were arrested, one of which was René. Some witnesses said that René incited the strike and led it. René argued that he only stopped one person from throwing a big hunk of masonry and someone else from throwing stones, and he advised them all to go home. However, he was punished by the court with three months of imprisonment, 50 francs plus 15 francs fine for each of the accused.
