La Commune de Paris

Updated: Oct 29, 2021

"Everyone is looking for their way, we are looking for ours and we believe that the day when the reign of freedom and equality will have arrived, humanity will be happy." With this quote from Louise Michel, an emblematic figure of the Paris Commune, I begin today to publish notes regarding The Paris Commune (La Commune de Paris), the 150th anniversary of which falls this year. A century and a half after this popular uprising against conservative power - born on the ruins of the French defeat against the Prussians - and finally trampled in blood, it is still worthy of being planted and remembered. This popular insurrection, taking power in Paris for three months, mirrored and addressed many issues of the modern era, still relevant today and many unresolved.
