1968-72: Days of Rage, Days of Hope

Blog
Lee Rhiannon 27 Apr 2018

During 1968 - at the height of the Vietnam War - every continent was marked by youth radicalisation and student revolts, often reverberating among the working population and Indigenous peoples. It gave rise to new political demands centred around grassroots democracy. The women’s liberation movement began to emerge as did a widespread concern with our living environment. It was a time of global revolution that continued into the 1970s.

On the 50th anniversary of the spectacular student uprising and the three-week general strike in France, this four part series of forums will pose the question of what can we learn from these formative times.
