Declaration of the Commune de Paris to the French people

La Commune de Paris. Wednesday, April 19, 1871. Tonight the session of the Commune, which began last night, approved the program which appears under the name of "Déclaration de la Commune de Paris au peuple français" (Declaration of the Paris Commune to the French people). In short, Paris reclaims the Republic, broad autonomy for Paris and all the communes of France. As a whole, the program is certainly not revolutionary in the Jacobin or socialist sense, it seems to aim primarily to reassure the French petty bourgeoisie and thus have its support against the government of Versailles.
