‘Achieve European unification or have it thrust upon us’ from Le Figaro (17 October 1951)

On 17 October 1951, the French daily newspaper Le Figaro highlights the historic importance of the Schuman Plan and emphasises the revolutionary aspects of the changes that will accompany the establishment of a European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) for the national economies of the Six. The author notes, however, that the general public are unaware of the considerable upheavals that will occur.
