THE MONOPOLY OF VIOLENCE
(Un pays qui se tient sage)

As anger and resentment grow in the face of social inequalities, many citizen-led protests are being repressed with an ever-increasing violence. In THE MONOPOLY OF VIOLENCE, David Dufresne gathers a panel of citizens to question, exchange and confront their views on the social order and the legitimacy of the use of force by the State.
