Paris, May 1968 (starting on May 3, 1968)

In May of 1968 Paris appears to be on the brink of revolution. Protests at the University of Nanterre first spread to Paris, then to the entire republic. Student occupations are met with violence. Hundreds of arrests and injuries turn into street battles with the police. Due to the state authority’s brutal treatment large parts of the population sympathize with the students, the trade unions proclaim a general strike in solidarity. Within a matter of days up to 10 million French workers participate in a general strike, paralyzing the country. Demands for better university and working conditions merge with protests against the excesses of capitalism, the war in Vietnam and the authoritarian society. Strike- and action committees organize as a counterforce to a precipitately acting government. A touch of anarchy is in the air.

A coup d’état seems to be within reach.

Nevertheless, the tide turns near the end of the month. Union representatives and employers agree to improve labour conditions. Supporters of the conservative administration take to the streets nationwide. President de Gaulle, who by now has fled to the French military’s headquarters in Germany, dissolves the National Assembly and calls for a new election on June 23, from which he emerges as the clear victor.

Meanwhile, labour representatives have brought about an end to the strike movement. Unrest continues only in a few factories and universities. A revolution did not occur, nor did any fundamental reforms materialize. And yet in France the “jolie mai” (“beautiful May”) becomes the epitome of the worldwide youth revolt of 1967 and 1968. Nowhere else has there been such a solidarity across the population. No other rebellion of that time has spawned so many impressive images and slogans as the French rebellion did: “Be realistic, ask the impossible!”
