The General Strike in France: 1968

The latest issue of Workers' Liberty features an essay by David Broder on the May-June 1968 General Strike in France, with particular reference to the self-activity of the working class against the will of the union leaders and attempts to implement forms of workers' control and management.

It is followed by an account of the first night of the first factory occupation, which took place at Sud Aviation near Nantes.
