Tommorrow is the anniversary of Tillon's appeal, one day before De Gaulle.

The bourgeois governments have surrendered Spain, Austria, Albania, Czechoslovakia, and now France to Hitler and Mussolini.

They are guilty of betrayal.

After having surrendered the armies of the North and the east, after having surrendered Paris, its factories, and its workers, they think they can, with Hitler’s assistance, surrender the entire country to fascism.

But the French people want nothing to do with the poverty and slavery of fascism.

No more than they wanted the capitalists’ war.

They have numbers; united, they will have strength.

For a people’s government relying on the masses, liberating the workers, establishing the legality of the Communist Party, fighting against Hitlerite fascism and the two hundred families, reaching an understanding with the USSR for a just peace, fighting for national independence, and taking measures against fascist organizations.

People of the factories, of the fields; of shops, of offices; merchants, artisans and intellectuals; soldiers, sailors, and airmen still under arms UNITE IN ACTION!

Charles Tillon, Gradignan, June 17, 1940
