The typical communard is a Parisian worker of about thirty years old

La Commune de Paris. Sunday, April 30, 1871. The fighting continues on the outskirts of the besieged city, but today we are trying to see what is the social portrait of the Communards, the insurgents, who animate and fight for the Paris Commune. According to some analyses, the typical Communard is a Parisian worker in his thirties. We find construction workers (17%), day laborers and metalworkers (16%), workers employed in workshops or small factories (10%). There are also employees (8%), shoemakers (5%), wine merchants (4%), and booksellers (3%). 9% are highly politicized people.
