Che events took place between 10:03 a.m. and 11:42 a.m. on Wednesday, June 30. They took place in real time in 99 minutes flat. It did not take one more for Arnaud Lagardère to welcome Vincent Bolloré into his midst; it did not take one less for the employees of Europe 1 to try to push it away. Two places: a ministudio installed rue de Presbourg, in the XVIe arrondissement of Paris, at the headquarters of the group where the speakers are as crowded as Arnaud Lagardère in his costume; the steps of the building of Europe 1 where gathered those who came to demonstrate against, to use the slogan launched by the intersyndicale and the Society of Editors, “The growing influence of Vincent Bolloré”.
10:03 a.m., rue de Presbourg. The general meeting of the Lagardère group (finally, the« annual general meeting » as it is written on the screen, let’s not forget that Arnaud is a little American) stands in line and it is Arnaud Lagardère who opens it, “Without any nostalgia” : “I would tend to say in a positive and constructive way that nothing changes. “ Two-three things all the same. This GA ratifies the loss of his superpower, the sponsorship, which prevented him from being fired. Well forced, Arnaud, to give it up because he held this totem of immunity on condition of being able to answer personally for the debts of the group. And you know it well, money, it flies, it flies. And then Arnaud Lagardère becomes infatuated with stuff and then gets tired of it, so he sells.
