In deciding to publish this special issue of 'Il Popolo', the confederal council wanted not only to collect the most important documents of the exciting days of struggle in the spring of 1968 in a single copy, but also to describe them as they happened and show their profound significance. This extraordinary issue was prepared in the heat of the battle. It is the true story of an unprecedented movement.... We hope that future trade union activists will be able to learn lessons from it that will help them to carry the flag of the CGT, the symbol of workers' emancipation, ever higher.
Georges Séguy, Secrétaire Général de la C.G.T.
