The Times of London, edition But if the Communard movement could get that kind of traction in France, what would stop its inspiration from overturning the established order in many places outside of France? The Assembly also refused to prolong the moratorium on debt collections imposed during the war; and suspended two radical newspapers, Le Cri du Peuple of Jules Valles and Le Mot d'Ordre of Henri Rochefortwhich further inflamed Parisian radical opinion.

Nearly all the forty-three representatives elected in Paris were prowar radical republicans, whereas provincial voters returned more than four hundred conservatives but barely one hundred republicans. In the end, the city capitulatedon 28 Januaryregular troops were taken prisoner, and the city suffered the humiliation of a triumphal German march through its streets. It's not that they certainly could not work out their organizational problems--we don't know, the forces of reaction were quickly mustered to crush it, precisely because it just might have worked. In the Lowlands, in Germany, in Britain Reacting to French government policy of shooting captured Communards, Commune issues an "eye-for-an-eye" policy statement, threatening retaliation.
