Cool photos of the 1968 Paris France riots

It seems every 50 years or so riots take place in Paris.

No, not riots or protests, just mass shootings every week. Freedom of expression, freedom of the press, the right to assemble - those have all been declared un-American lately. I'll stop before I write too much.


As for the photos - I'd hate to have been anybody unfortunate enough to have parked their car on those streets, and come back to find it all dented and scratched up - or on its roof and burned up. Although some of that may have been done by those seeking to discredit the protests.

I'm not sure 'cool' is the term I'd use to describe riots, but yes, they are definitely interesting photos.

Wait, agents provocateurs in a developed Democratic society?

You must be kidding!

Or you happen to know things you shan't talk about

It's always interesting to see and remember what happened times ago, 50 years are enough to make this series interesting...

You're earnestly comparing Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron in 2018 to Marie Joseph Louis Adolphe Thiers in 1871?

"Thiers, that monstrous gnome, has charmed the French bourgeoisie for almost half a century, because he is the most consummate intellectual expression of their own class corruption. ... Thiers was consistent only in his greed for wealth and his hatred of the men that produce it."

The Yellow Vesters just won't quit.

We may have a repeat of the 1968 riots after all.

Youtube can be as accurate or inaccurate as any other media medium, including photography.

Ernest Appert's phoney photo montages of so called scenes from the 1871 Paris Commune are a good example , as say compared to Bruno Braquehais more straight forward documentary style of photography of the same 1871 event, even with the limitations of wet plate photography of the era.

There is nothing new under the sun where mankind is concerned.

History tends to repeat its self.

Everything tends to repeat its self , the good , the bad, the indifferent and the caring.

It must be part and parcel of the downloaded program for humanity and all part of the "big show" of this illusion that we call life.

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. - Karl Marx ...

My first theorem: Stupid people are never infertile. Paris is now dealing with the grandkids of the 1968 rioters.

When I look at all those photos the first thing I think is that most of those folks are now in their 70's and 80's (or already dead) and what do they look like now? Little old ladies and little old men.

Now that´s a heavy handed line you are throwing.



That could easily be called diffamation.

Dear Colker,
1. define «diffamation» please... may not be the same what it is in Portuguese!
2. I ask you politely to consider that there have been reliable studies published on exactly that topic who the riotous persons in Paris 1968 were and what their family background was.
Thank you.

Back to photography...

There are photos of girls marching with flowers in their hands, we have pictures of destructions, we have students making their propagande in a pacific way, other protesting in a more violent way, fighting, there is an huge crowd demonstrating in a non violent way, we have so many different people among the protesters, supporters of different ideas (by the way which camera is that?), student and workers demonstrating together, general De Gaulle, De Gaulle supporters, pains, not only students here, movie directors and poets, politiciens, marching students again, gaulliste politicians and supporters, volunteers helping wounded people, workers on strike, farmers, and many other interesting images.

For sure it was a difficult and painful time. Was the '68 movement good or bad? Each one has right to his own answer depending on ideas, age, formation, education and many other factors.

But being this a photographic forum I only desire to thanks all the photographers (unknown and amateurs included) who witness the movement in such difficult and risky situation. Thanks , thanks,
thanks, thanks you both, thanks (interesting camera for sure not high-tech), thanks Jean Luc, thanks, thanks, thanks you all for your dedication to photography...

robert, who was 20 in the 1968
