May 29 and 30 – "Days of the Paris Commune (1871)" in Paris

With ICOR – the program



Dear friends and comrades,

among the numerous activities on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Commune, the highlight will be the weekend of May 29 and 30 in Paris, which we are very much looking forward to!


Health advice: Especially on Saturday there will be activities with many participants. These require a very conscious behaviour and attention to health measures in view of the corona epidemic, which is still strong in France. Many activities will take place outdoors. Physical distance, observance of hygiene rules and masks are essential.

On Sunday, the numbers are more manageable and participation even on that day alone is "worthwhile" for people who need and want to stay away from larger crowds.

Observe the current entry and exit conditions for France and your country of entry.


Here is the programme:
