Transnational Call for a wild May 2018 in Paris.
Fifty years ago, the french revolt in 68 began already on the 22nd of March. Starting in Nanterre with the claim by the male students to be allowed to visit the female students in their room, with some anti-repression and anti-war topics, developed into a wild political may that marked history. Last week, in 2018, the national day of strike and demo was deliberately organised on the 22nd of March to echo the start of nationwide protests in 1968 that led to the country’s biggest-ever strike and notorious street battles between police and students.
“We could therefore do this: Instead of commemorating may 1968, we could
try organising a beautiful month of may 2018.”
