Comment on 1968, when revolution was everybody’s business by Evelyne Roullet.

Charlie you bring back memories of May to July 1968: It was the time when people were not guided by money and material possessions like today, family values and human rights were important.
My favorite slogans were:
Élections, piège à con (Elections, a trap for idiots).
Cela nous concerne tous (This concerns all of us.)
Leon Zitrone the radio foreign broadcasting services of Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française told the public not to trust Televised news as they were edited to please the rulers of the day. (Nothing changed obviously)
It was a turning point in my life as we decided to leave Europe for Australia, the land of the free: God bless Australia, The land of the free.
Here in Australia, we treasure love and liberty.
Our way of life, all for one, one for all.
(Australian songwriter and radio personality Jack O’Hagan.)
Alas it seems that 50 years after my days of protesting are not over. SAVE ANZAC OVAL.

1968, when revolution was everybody’s business
Russel, I agree with Charlie, because 1968 in France and Germany had nothing to do with the Beatles and their songs.
It follow Daniel Cohn-Bendit’s activism.
In 1968 the hope was to change the world, like the Bolshevik Revolution.
While a youth revolt became general in the West — from anti-Vietnam protests in the United States to the Rolling Stones in swinging London and finally the Baader-Meinhof gang in West Germany — France was where the protests of the baby-boom generation came closest to a real political revolution, with 10 million workers on strike, and not just a revulsion against stifling social rules of class, education and sexual behaviour.
