Chinese Reporting on the May 1968 Uprising in France

Two Chinese cultural Revolution maps printed on a single sheet (back-to-back), published following the May Uprising in France, in 1968.

The map illustrates France as dominated by the worker's uprising, including strikes, interruption of train lines, harbors, and airports.

A portrait of Mao and a Mao quotation are shown at the top.

The May Uprising in France was a student/worker movement, which resulted in massive nationwide strikes that paralyzed the country.  The Communist Party sought to utilize the uprising as propaganda for the spread of communism and the inevitable defeat of imperialism, capitalism, and colonialism.
