On the 19th march 1913 winegrowers' demonstration to recover the right to produce wine champagne. They burnt their taxes notifications in front of the city hall. On the city hall pediment was painted an unusual motto :
"Poor French Republic, your motto falls apart.

Somedays ago the city hall square was very quiet.
