IN May...the rebel visits
Paris may '68
friday 12 May, 14h
thursday 18 May, 19h
This unique guided visit submerges you in the main events of the protests of May and June '68 which paralyzed the country during several weeks, around the University of the Sarbonne and the Latin Quarter. May '68 was the largest societal revolt of the 20th century with its unforgettable slogans :" Everyone is free to be free", "Take your desires as reality", "The walls have the word", "Be realistic, demand for the impossible"...
We will raise the issues of this large spontaneous revolt from the young Parisian students which then extended to the workers. Breaking with the Gaullist power, the society of consummation, and the traditional valors and the old school of though, the vast revolt continued to grow and began to turn against the bourgeois. I will take you to the traces of the meetings at the Sorbonne, the pavés jetés, the Odéon Theater, the feminist movements, and popular figures (Daniel Cohn Bendit, Serge July...). We will discuss the birth of the MLF (movement for the liberation of women) in 1970, the sexual liberation (adoption of contraception...), the affirmation of youth (newspapers, radio...) in the context of the rising sentiments in France and internationally (the Vietnam War, the Hippie movement, communist revolutions of Che and Fidel Castro). A guided visit to the sounds of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, find the ideal of liberty in spring '68 !
