Conseil pour le maintien des occupations (CMDO) flyers and broadside, 1968 May

 File — Box: 3, Folder: 2

Scope and Contents

Two flyers and a broadside produced by the Conseil pour le maintien des occupations (CMDO) during the May 1968 protests in France. All three items call for a worker revolution against the existing class structure and bureaucracies, arguing that French labor unions are ineffective and out of touch. They advocate for the creation of a classless society governed by a federated series of Workers' Councils.
