A welcome initiative;






 l’Association des Amies et Amis de la Commune de Paris 1871.

In May, when the Versailles troops were at the gates of Paris, the town hall of 14 th arrondissent organised a  free vaccination campaign against smallpox.

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Paris Commune, our association wanted to mark this event by offering you the free download of an Android Smartphone application.

This application invites you for a communal walk in the Père Lachaise cemetery.

App to download for visiting sites:

    • Quite a few republicans were not supporters of the Commune for the obvious reason that thy had created a Third Republic after the ruin of the Second Empire, and also because they opposed the federalist programme they could see emerging from the Paris leadership..

      In Gareth Steadman Jones Karl Marx (2016) he notes that George Odger, a founder and one of the most prominent British trade unionists in the First International this,

      “As a leading republican activist he identified the republican cause with the Orléaniste government of Favre and Thiers.” (Page 510)

  2. The vaccination drive was socially desirable and needed in the state Paris was in by this time, but I suspect the concept would not have gone down a bomb with some English radicals of the time (even some who were supporters of the International) who were anti-vaxx on the grounds it was an upper class plot to cull the children of workers.

    • There were an awful lot of very strange ideas on the late 19th century left and working class movement.

      This was in print, from the library that was most read by working class self-taught readers, well into the twentieth century.

      Organon of the Rational Art of Healing. Everyman’s Library No. 663 Hardcover – 1 Jan. 1913
      by Samuel. Hahnemann (Author).

      Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (German: [ˈhaːnəman]; 10 April 1755[1] – 2 July 1843) was a German physician, best known for creating the pseudoscientific[2] system of alternative medicine called homeopathy.
