An angry Sarkozy later denounced the the protesters as “hooligans” and and their actions as “the violence of a minority and their unacceptable behaviour”.

“Here, we're in France, on the territory of the French republic, and the president of the republic will go everywhere. And if that doesn't please a minority of troublemakers, too bad for them”, he said.
