Homenaje a Jean Jaurés

This year is commemorated the centenary of the murder of the French Socialist deputy Jean Auguste Marie Joseph Leon Jaurès, better known as Jean Jaurès, who carried out the learning of the class struggle and socialism. Pacifist in extreme, was distinguished for his campaign against the impending World War. That was until July 31, 1914, when the exalted fanatic Raoul Villain (what a last name!) assassinated him at the Café du Croissant, at Montmartre Street, Paris. With the completion of the First World War and to protest to his gigantic slaughter, the French gave the name Jaurès to streets, squares, the Metro of Lyon and the Paris Metro.
