The Saigon Commune: Against Imperialism and Stalinism

On this day in history, the Saigon Commune was created. With the end of World War II and Japan’s surrender to the Allies, the Japanese occupation of Vietnam also ended. Soon thereafter, revolutionary workers in various parts of Vietnam rose up in an insurrection against reoccupation by French imperialism --- but also against Stalinist repression. Trotskyists played a central role.
