Paris: May 1968

This pamph­let de­scribes the events in the streets of Paris, at the Renault works, the Sor­bonne “soviet”, the propa­ganda sec­tion at the Centre Censier, the march to Billan­court on May 16th, and it docu­ments the chan­ging line of the French CP and the CGT, and draws con­clu­sions for the future.

  The black flag that flew last week above the tumul­tu­ous stu­dent dis­orders of Paris stood for a philo­sophy that the modern world has all but for­gotten: anarchy. Few of the stu­dents who riot in France, Germany or Italy—or in many another coun­try—would pro­fess out­right al­le­giance to anarchy, but its basic tenets in­spire many of their lead­ers. Germany’s “Red Rudi” Dutschke and France’s “Red Danny” Cohn-Bendit openly espouse anarchy. “In theory,” says West German Polit­ical Sci­entist Wolf­gang Aben­droth, “the stu­dents are a spe­cies of Marx­ists, but in prac­tice they are anarch­ists.” Not since the anarch­ist surge in the Span­ish Civil War has the West­ern world seen a move­ment so en­thu­si­astic­ally de­voted to the de­struc­tion of law, order and so­ciety in the name of un­lim­ited in­di­vidual free­dom.
