I say, let Blanqui's recklessness be exploited for the benefit of the people of the Republic. While he did act out of turn and did endanger our fellow proletariots, he has given us a grand opportunity to bring the revolution to the rest of the German Fatherland. Let us exploit this grand window, and take back what rightfully belongs to the people, and from there, we can begin to bring the revolution to the rest of the world!

Zur Ehre des Volkes! Freiheit, Gleichheit, Deutschland!

While expanding the Republic, the Marxists seem to try to weaken the other factions. How can we be sure that Weitling was really guilty? Was Comrade Kadon really behind the attack on the carriage which killed Eccarius, the leader of the Unionists? Why should Kadon want to kill him as he proposed a coalition between the Anarchists and Unionists before? It just doesn't make sense. The only one who is really gaining from these incidents is Karl Marx who got rid of the people who could control him.

But we can't get more information about this, as there is no free press. The Marxists dictate what the only newspaper print. We didn't start this revolution to free us from the capitalists, just to be surpressed by self-proclaimed communists!

A Special Report from the Foreign Office

Revolution in France?

The following report was created by Comrade Feuerbach – Commissar for Foreign Affairs

Comrades, you may be aware of the current tumultuous situation across the border in France, but if you are not then it is imperative that you read this report closely. The outcome of the conflict in Europe’s greatest land power could gravely effect our future geo-political situation.



Most of you should recognise this man – Philip VII of France. Many of we Party members were involved in the attempt to overthrow his grandfather, Louis-Philippe, in 1848 and since 1850 this man has ruled as King of the French. Like his grandfather before him he has faced constant opposition from the Republicans in France and more recently from our Comrades in the French Workers’ League.

Sadly though Philip’s counterrevolutionary state and his close alliance with the bourgeoisie have meant that for most of the 1850s his position as King and as a direct threat to this proud Republic has remained secure. Yet in 1857 he made a grave error.



Between May 1857 and June 1858 the reactionary French Monarchy fought the slightly more progressive Spanish Monarchy over a small chunk of desolate territory in Morocco. The majority of the fighting took place in the blood soaked mountains of the Pyrenees although towards the end of the war French forced broke through Spanish lines and ransacked Catalonia. The war was a French victory but it was devastating for the King’s position. Around 150,000 French soldiers had died in a war that the public was never once in favour of. Confidence of the army was lost whilst the Anti-War movement (spearheaded by First International members – the French Workers’ League) was extremely powerful amongst the public. The King had lost a huge section of his support in exchange for what was in truth a worthless extension to French Morocco.



As is the fate of all capitalist economies the French economy collapsed in 1858. By the Spring of 1859 unemployment was approaching one million and at least three million more were on the breadline. With confidence in the ruling government utterly smashed the people flocked to the banners of the radicals. Unfortunately the strength of the Republican Party in France meant that far fewer entered the French Workers’ League than we might have hoped but there was still an upsurge in support for the faction.



Throughout 1859 anti-government agitation grew in France as Republican demonstrations filled the streets of Paris, Marseilles, Lyon and Bordeaux. Around September Blanqui’s Ministry of Intelligence began the clandestine arming of the French Workers’ League in hopes of provoking revolution.



The French Civil War was finally sparked off on November 15th 1859 after a rowdy Republican demonstration was attacked by Royalist troops. The Republican Party took this as reason enough to rise up and they sent out the call to arms for all proud Republican citizens of France. By the end of the week 100,000s of Frenchmen had risen up out of the Republican fortresses in Brittany, Gascony, the Rhone Valley and Provence whilst large sections of the French Army had joined the Republicans.

With the revolution so clearly in the hands of the liberal Republicans rather than any socialist movement the French Workers’ League was initially unsure of what action to take and on November 16th they consulted the First International. The International encouraged them to seek an agreement with the Republicans and then immediately join the Revolution (which by this stage was evolving into a Civil War as the Royalists had started to rally).



With a promise of representation in the future Republican government and concessions for the workers the French Workers’ League threw their lot in with the Republicans on November 21st as they launched a joint operation with the Republicans to seize Paris. The coup was a marvellous success as the King was humiliatingly forced to follow the example of his grandfather in 1848 and flee the capital. Shortly later volunteers of the International started to cross the border of the VSVR into France. This led to the capture of several areas in Elass and the industrial regions around Lille.



As 1859 draws to a close it is still unclear if the revolution shall succeed in France.

Although this revolution is liberal in character I feel, Comrades, that we must support it. Any movement of the working classes, even if it is not socialist, must be supported by the world’s only Worker’s state.

WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!

Mark my words -- the leadership of the People's Republic will attempt to seize more land as a result of the revolution in France. The territories seized by the International's Volunteers will soon be swallowed by our growing empire. If you believe this to be an extreme accusation: Wallonia, Flanders, Hesse-Kassel & Nassau -- what makes this situation different?

Support your friendly, neighborhood Anarchists.

I say support the revolution, but let no land be annexed to our own republic! This revolution is liberal in character, and therefore none of their bourgeouis-minded people should enter our state, though better a neighbouring bourgeouis republic than a neighbouring bourgeouis monarchy!

I agree whole-heartedly. It is obvious for anyone to see that Marx and his ilk want all the power to themselves!

I say we support the revolution to the extent of a free france and nothing more. Comrades the progress we have made is truly grand but we are expanding to fast for us to manage and besides in the eyes of our neighbors we will be nothing more than another petty landgrabbing tyrant.

Power corrupts, we must watch not only the Marxists, but every faction that has majority power. This is why a free press is essential to the security of our republic, so that the people can be informed of everything that the state does.

Lies! The Central Committee has unanimously voted that he is guilty. Are questioning their judgement, comrade? He should consider himself lucky that he wasn't sent to the firing squad.

Comrade Kadon is a traitor to the people! Treason runs in his veins, I can smell his treachery from here! He did not just kill Eccarius, he also nearly killed Engels and Liebknecht. Surely comrade, that is something that comrade Chairman Marx wouldn't do.

I suggest you change your mind before Comrade Blanqui hears you speak such nonsense!

I see no point in supporting a revolution instigated by the bourgeoisie, yet this could be a good occasion for us to free the germans living in Alsace Lorraine! For too long they have been oppressed under the french rule.

Concerning the german question, I must argue that if left on their own the proletarian germans are most likely to have to endure the dictatorship of capitalism for a long time. Our comrade Marx has to forget about his pride and take advantage of the situation created by Comrade Blanqui.

Blanqui was the one who acted rashly without consulting your treasured Marx in the first place; do you really think Marx would let him off his leash so soon? And the Central Comittee has a majority of, guess what, MARXISTS!

If you truely see Marx as a champion of the people, then why do I see him doing nothing about the press? Free press is unquestionably one of the key qualities of a true republic of the people. Not only that, but a true freedom-loving man would never deny another person's right to speak their thoughts, and yet you suggest that your beloved Marx should do something about what this man has to say!

Some people do have a worrying tendency in regards to speech. No one here discussing things disagrees on our ultimate goal, merely on methods, but suddenly merely advocating free exchange of ideas is suddenly considered dangerous.

We must trust Marx and the Committee to make the correct decisions with regards to published material. Opening up the media to "freedom" would merely give those who wish to ferment inter-faction hatred in our glorious republic (such as certain Anarchists) a platform to spout their vile slurry!

We must trust Marx and the Committee to make the correct decisions with regards to published material. Opening up the media to "freedom" would merely give those who wish to ferment inter-faction hatred in our glorious republic (such as certain Anarchists) a platform to spout their vile slurry!
And would blindly allowing them to do as they wish, without any criticism at all, be any better?

It will lead to the spreading of hatred and propaganda, yes. But otherwise, the state would be able to do as they wish without any repercussions whatsoever. They would transform our beautiful republic into simply another bourgeouis dictatorship, where the ones with the money and the power rule over those who have nothing. Our people would have no say in what the government that is supposed to protect them decides to do. That, comrade, is against everything our revolution is, was, and will be about.

So we would open our republic to subversive elements simply for the sake of keeping the government in check, a function that the party elections already fulfil? We must portray a united front to the people; letting them view government criticism would allow the people to take sides within the party. That will accomplish nothing but to sow the seeds of our own destruction through division.

The party elections hardly fulfill that purpose; if they did, those who wish to concentrate power into the state (in this case, Marx and his ilk) would not be in power, and if they were, they would not be able to do such.

Besides, we already have the established factions; we may as well allow the people to know what the government is doing, since the faction system will only degenerate into more arguing, with or without free press. To tell the people that we are united would be to lie to them.

And I would rather we tear ourselves apart than allow another bourgeouis dictatorship to take hold in my homeland! Either the people rule, or no one rules!
