In the aftermath of the uprisings in Bastia, the specter of violence still hangs over Corsica.

Residents deplore the consequences and repercussions of the riots on Sunday evening on their daily lives and their businesses.

Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin is expected in Corsica tomorrow and Thursday for a return to calm.

In Bastia, residents can't take it anymore.

On Sunday, violent riots broke out in the center of the Corsican city, after the attack on Yvan Colonna in prison.

Hundreds of people marched to the cry of "French State assassin", then the situation degenerated, leading to the intervention of the CRS.

39 CRS, 27 mobile gendarmes and three local police officers were injured, according to information from the Police-Justice service of Europe 1. A resident of Bastia deplores the violence: “Who suffers the consequences? It is the taxpayers. What is broken on all sides, we one day or another, unfortunately, we pay."
