More information

As a young man, Pouget founded his first newspaper, Le Lycéen républicain (The Republican Student) at high-school, being revolted at the trial of the Narbonne's Communards in Rodez.

He participated as soon as 1879, aged 19, at the creation of a textile union, the Syndicat des employés du textile. He then joined in 1881 a group of French anarchists at the London International Congress, following the dissolving of the First International.


Pouget was arrested on March 9, 1883, following a demonstration in Paris by unemployed people, during which three breadshops were pillaged. He was detained while trying to free Louise Michel from the police's hands. Condemned to 8 years prison for "armed pillage", Pouget was detained from 1883 to 1886 at Melun's prison.
