Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Soturdoy, Mny 2, 1974 THS IITH8RIDCE HERAID 19 Plot French i Revolt PARIS (AP) The Maoists of the extreme left in France are aiming for another May- June revolt like the one in 1968, They want to "destroy the bour- geoisie stone by stone." The quotation belongs to Alain Geismar, a 30-year-old "red panther" who, along with Dan- iel (Danny, the Hed) Colin-Ben- dit, helped start the 1968 revolt. He now is dispatching .trained agitators to every social protest demonstration, whether it in- volves students, truck drivers, shopkeepers or farmers. Geismar believes the 1968 re- volt failed because the masses split among themselves. This time, he hopes to do better. He hopes to smash away at the es- tablishment until "it is no longer possible for man to ex- ploit his fellow man." Geismar, a French citizen, has his doctorate in physics from the University of Paris and spent a year at Cambridge University working in his field and perfecting his English. The last time, Geismar and Cohn-Bendit helped plunge France into a work stoppage so wide that the country still is re- covering economically. It ended when the Communist party, the Communist-led unions "and the bourgeoisie" split off and nego- tiated sizable pay raises with the government. "They said Geismar, who calls orthodox Communists "socio-Fascists." Geismar's group, known mally as the Proletarian Left, is organizing factory cells which are political, unionist and mili- tary all at once. Geismar will not say how many cells he has. The number, he says, is not important. It counts more if each man knows his job. Together with associated groups, the Maoist activists probably number only in the dozens or scores, say other qualified sources. i I 1 1 i V- ft- i j
