Oh My Camille Desmoulins

Today, July 12, marks the 223rd anniversary of Camille Desmoulins’ call to arms in the Palais Royal, in 1789. "Citizens! Necker has been dismissed! Could they defy you more insolently? After this, they will dare anything. On this night they will prepare, perhaps, a St. Bartholomew for the patriots… To arms! To arms! Take, all of you, green cockades, the color of hope!" Camille finished with the words "I shall know how to die a glorious death. Only one misfortune can touch me, that of seeing France enslaved." 

Camille’s call to liberty is credited with inspiring the storming of the Bastille two days later, and is seen as the symbolic start of the French Revolution. As Camille would publish in La France Libre soon after — “From one end of France to the other, the same cry, a universal cry, is heard. Everyone wants to be free.”
