A look at 1968 through posters

Fifty years ago, it seemed that the world was on the brink of revolution. On this anniversary, we look back on the legacy of the global uprisings and examine how to construct solidarity in our current time of neoliberalism, austerity and heightened rascism and xenophobia. The images of 1968 capture the passion, the bravery, and the variety of tactics used by radical movements around the world.
