Workers’ Committee for United Action

Tract – “Support our Action” (May/June 1968, Faculté de Médecine)

SUPPORT OUR ACTION

WE WANT REFORMS
– A democratic university open to all (3% of workers)
– Real, practical hospital training

    Nurse work placements in the first rotation
    A Foundation programme for everyone

– Medicine of quality and equality

    More doctor-student contact
    Tests of the knowledge and skills of future doctors
    No checklists for exams

AS:

– until now training hasn’t been appropriate to today’s circumstances
– selection wasn’t made on the basis of skills but on the number of places available in the Faculty

BECAUSE:
– our country is medically underdeveloped
– there are 8000 enrolments in C.P.E.M. and 2500 places available in the first year

  OUR TALKS ARE POSITIVE

But we need:

– office supplies
– paper for the Faculty newsletters
– funding

    for the creche for students’ children
    for the injured students
    for supplies
    for ambulances
    for the infirmary

HELP OUR MOVEMENT MORALLY AND FINANCIALLY

Tract – about Gilles Tautin (11 June 1968)

On 10 June, our comrade Gilles TAUTIN, a 17 year old high-school student, died – murdered by the Gaullist police. He had gone to Flins, outpost of the the proletarian resistance, to put himself at the service of the legitimate struggle of the workers of Renault for the satisfaction of all their claims and for the freedom of their factory.

GILLES died in the service of the people, for the union of the youth with the workers’ movement. From this point on his name is inseparable from the popular revolution, the springtime of our people.

We will escort Gilles for the last time in militant discipline.

The cortege will assemble on Saturday at 3pm, in front of his parents home, 120 Bd Berthier (17th)

His comrades.

—–

You have fallen for all who starve
All who are despised and oppressed
From your pity for your brothers
Wonderful martyrs and victims.

Chorus
But the hour has sounded and the people victorious
Stretch out, breathe and prosper.
Farewell comrades, Farewell noble hearts;
Farewell most noble brothers.

The prize of your efforts, the sentence of death
Or else a life in chains,
The noise of your shackles is pregnant with
The plains of Siberia.
