Mendes-France Dissents

Winner, Percy
May 1956
New Republic;5/7/56, Vol. 134 Issue 19, p9
The article focuses on the decision of French statesman Pierre Mendes-France to resign from the French Government by the middle of May unless by that time Premier Guy Mollet has put into actual effect concrete measures of sweeping reform on behalf of the Moslem population of Algeria and also to justify the measures of military repression of the extreme Moslem nationalists. The decision of French Premier Guy Mollet to increase the taxes will fall most heavily on those who are least able to pay. For Algeria the departure of Mendes-France would mean for the moderate Moslems the removal from the active political scene of the France.
