It proclaimed the freedom of labor, the abolition of the death penalty in politics, universal suffrage. National workshops were created in March 1848. Elections were held in April and lead to the success of moderate Republicans. The closing of the national workshops causes riots are quelled by General Cavaignac who is appointed Chairman of the Board. The rebels were executed, imprisoned, deported.
