Under the paving stones, the beach

Paris '68, students riot,police riot, across France eleven million join the general strike and the Government very nearly gets on it's toes, hard times indeed, reinforced by radical political street art, it could never happen here in the 21st century ? Radical chic never looked so good.



The striking yet simple imagery used in these posters urged the people to fight the Government, take to the streets and to occupy the factories. This images have stood the test of time yet their creators remain largely anonymous.
