The current "Yellow Vest" movement in France owes something to its predecessors: Prof. Bantigny reveals that 1968 in France mobilized 10 million people, including more than 7 million employees and workers who engaged in a general strike for goals that went far beyond the economic.  Protesters occupied factories, companies, offices, stations, harbors, post offices, theaters, cultural centers and schools in the hope of creating a more just, emancipated, and egalitarian society.  This talk is cosponsored by the Mershon Center and the Department of French and Italian.
