Commune proclaimed in Marseille and Lyon

La Commune de Paris. Thursday, March 23, 1871. While the day is quieter in Paris, Marseille and Lyon rise up and proclaim their respective Communes. The malaise, the opposition to the national government, the desire for emancipation and self-determination, the revolutionary yearning are not only the prerogative of the capital of France. If it is true that the countryside still sees a popular majority linked to the monarchy or to a conservative vision, one should not believe that outside of Paris, in other cities of the nation, there is no desire and activity of revolt. Today in many other cities of France, revolt is being prepared or has begun.
