Union des Jeunesses Communistes (Marxiste-Leniniste)
Translated: by Mitchell Abidor 2008.
June 13, 1968
Yesterday at the Sorbonne it was the great dissolution.
For some it was clearly the final dissolution
For them, while feverishly packing their bags, they looked completely dissolved. You could clearly see that they felt themselves disappearing like sugar in the spray of the Minister of the Interior’s water. Adieu, then, the dissolved...
But for others of the dissolved the magic decree didn’t seem to have much effect, if not that of making them more confident and optimistic than ever.
“Who are you?”
“We’re the former Union of Young Marxist-Leninists.”
“But you’re dissolved as well and that’s all it does to you?”
“ ... ?”
“It’s not very complicated. Can the decree dissolve Mao- Tse-Tung Thought? The working masses? The revolt of the workers, the farmers and youth? Can the decree dissolve the proletarian line of the struggle of young people together with the revolutionary struggles of the French people? Can the decree do this?”
“Well, obviously not.”
“Right; and this is what we think too.”
The decree dissolves an organization, but an organization is simply a tool in service to a political line.
It’s the political line that every day penetrates the working masses of our country; it’s the thought of Comrade Mao Tse-Tung at work that every day arms more workers for the common combat. So as for organizations, the people can make them in quantities every day, and they do make them every day.
So why panic? What counts is that every day the proletarian revolutionary communist party is built in the struggle, and the decree can do nothing about this.
