Le Cas 68

Le Cas 68 refers to a period of time in France spanning from late March until June. It was a period of much social unrest for the country and what started as a student protest in opposition to the capitalist systems of the university transformed into one of the biggest social movements contemporary France has ever seen. 

Nearly every day during this time of protest can be marked with a significant event, and the group is going to discuss the events of 22nd March, the occupation of the administrative building which kick-started the entire movement, and 3rd May, the first riot.


Group members: Dona Ali, Esther Gyan-Debrah, Becca Hix, Kate Jenkins, Annika Weinmann


Background information on French society 1968: 

Between 1954 and 1968, wages increased by two and a half times and during the 1960s the number of people who owned a car doubled to 60% of the population. "France had undergone an unprecedented economic transformation since 1945, becoming a major industrial power. Yet, when it came to societal attitudes, France was still stuck in the early nineteenth century." - France Since 1815
