THE BOURGEOISIE IS AFRAID!

THE DESPERATE STATE PROVOKES 
It gathers all of its cops, its spies, its foremen, and the fascist remnants: the CRS and Gaullist commandos have thrown tear-gas grenades at the picket lines, and many PTT and ORTF facilities have been attacked (both in Paris the provinces).

THE STATE LIES
The entire press throws out false rumours of a return to work, remaining totally silent about the workers resistance. 
At the Gare de Lyon, of over 5,000 workers and employees, only 60 scab managers have “returned to work”; the press fantasizes about an imminent return to work at the RATP when all depots have voted with 95% supporting the continuation of the strike.

THE STATE CHEATS
It grants some provisional appeasements to workers and tries to divert their struggle onto parliamentary terrain, where it is always able to cheat the people.

MORE THAN EVER THE WORKERS ORGANISE THEIR RESPONSE 
They  search out striking workers to reinforce the mass occupation of the factories. They unite the whole working population around themselves: owners of small shops, employees, and intellectuals. They fight for the total satisfaction of all demands, for all workers.

THEY ORGANISE THEIR SELF-DEFENSE BY EVERY MEANS 
Already at Rennes the postal workers have been fighting against the CRS for an hour and a half. 
Already the strikers break down the age-old divisions between town and country, and between the industries themselves. Already the strikers of the CSF at Brest have put their production at the service of the workers, at the service of struggles against the employers. 

Today the decisive battle is carried out in the occupied factories. 

LET’S REMAIN UNITED AND RESOLUTE IN SUPPORT OF THE OCCUPIED FACTORIES. 
LET’S ORGANISE THE UNITY OF THE POPULAR FORCES IN PRINCIPLE AND IN ACTlON.
FOR THE SELF-DEFENSE OF THE MASSES. 
FOR THE OVERTHROW OF THE BOURGEOIS STATE. 

The workers take up the heroic example of the Paris Commune. They will carry out the struggle until the system of employers and wage-earners is abolished. 

ALL POWER TO THE WORKERS.
