People Power – The March to Democracy

Paris Street Protests of 1968

French Street Protests of 1968 …and of 2019?

"A recrudescent radical critique of the institutions of democracy …and in particular of the populist participant dimension thereof"

This description of 1968 was in a politics textbook written soon afterwards. Helpfully, someone had paraphrased this in the margin, by scribbling the much simpler: "ie. Revolution!"

These webpages are about Britain's long, slow, continuing progress towards democracy; particularly the contribution of people associated with Hemyock Castle.

Images from the Paris Street Protests in 1968

Street protests and popular campaigns often use striking images. The graphic images on this page were used during the street protests in Paris, 1968. Perhaps still topical today?

I created these copies (with my translations) from personal photographs of images stencilled on walls.
