According to witnesses, both sides were determined to do battle.
In Toulouse, the now usual demonstration against the health pass had only started a few minutes ago, and very quietly, when an impressive fight broke out in the procession, between Place Jeanne-d'Arc and Place Arnaud-Bernard.
From a police source, it brought together activists of the ultra-right and the ultra-left who seemed to have prepared for the confrontation.
Some of the protagonists were provided with iron bars.

The brawl ended with five arrests of young people, aged "thirty or less", who are still in custody this Sunday.
Despite the incredible violence of the images circulating on social networks, it did not hurt anyone.
The Toulouse demonstration has, according to the police count, brought together some 1,500 marchers opposed to vaccination or the health pass.
In the Pink City, the summer processions bring together a good number of “yellow vests” but also traditionalist Catholic families.
