Louise Michel Talking



“I have been told that I am an accomplice of the Commune. Certainly, yes, for the Commune wanted, above all else, the Social Revolution, and the Social Revolution is the dearest of my desires. Even more, I am honored in being one of the promoters of the Commune… Since it seems that every heart that beats for freedom has no right to anything, but a little slug of lead, I demand my share. If you let me live, I shall never cease to cry for vengeance.”

(Louise Michel)
