The Uprising Movement that Starts in Paris and Climbs the Whole World: Events in May 1968

The student movement which began in France in May 1968 against the rule of De Gaulle and later influenced the whole world.
The events that took place in Paris, especially in Paris, are the most crucial part of the youth movements of the May 1968 that surround the whole world. Let's explain the pre-post-results / causes-and-results of this section for the interested and curious reader:

the breathlessness of the commodity diversity and abundance we have experienced today is undoubtedly felt for the first time for the first time in the sixties, when the consumer society was born (see les choses). In the evolution of consumer society, the explosion of the number of televisions, the heart of consumer culture, clearly summarizes this situation: In France in 1960, when the rate of households entering television in France was 15%, this rate jumped to 70% in 1970.

After the process of maturation in the fifties, the emergence of ü youth culture is also in this period. a tendency of emancipation under the influence of music groups and the desire to be taken seriously by adults pushed young people to practice new forms of self-expression. Of course, it was clear that there was a generation of conflict in these years. the parents had seen the nazi occupation, the destructiveness of the war (see the second world war) and the destruction they caused, but the new generation was experiencing a dissatisfaction and discomfort in the world of diversified commodities. young people, parents, the state and all the binding institutions against the use of drugs (see: cannabis) and freely free sex; thus, proclaiming his freedom. the astonishing internationalism of this youth made a great reaction to what happened in Vietnam and Algeria. This youth culture that emerged in May 1968 and opened a new era was the emergence of youth as a social actor in the sixties.

One of the external events that radicalized the students was that they did not give independence to Algeria (see the Algerian liberation war). the inadequate attempts of the French left to recognize independence and the lack of a stance against Vietnam's occupation (see Vietnam War) increased the students' reaction. they even went to algeria and even French youths were fighting for independence against the french army. The occupation of the usa in vietnam gave birth to more opposition in france than in other countries of the world, and the campaign between students against vietnam occupation constituted an organization preparation for may 68.

When we identify the causes of the events of May 68, we can see that the internal dimension has come to the fore more. After the second world war, with the increase in population and urbanization, the demand for schools started to increase and this demand continued to rise. the increase in the number of students in the university can not respond and the system has started to clog. this situation also added to the situation after the graduation can not find a job in the tension between young people has increased. Inequality between newly opened universities and elite universities is also a factor that increases the reaction. In other words, like all popular movements, in May 1968, in essence, it did not carry an idealism, it was not nourished by idealism, and it was nourished by the fundamentally economic and social disturbance, so the resulting reaction produced idealism. this skewness combined with other elements, such an explosion could be seen. one of these elements is the disturbance of the new generation, moral adult and elite interventions that have begun to breathe the atmosphere of emancipation and increase in commodity diversity. In 1967, the regulation that prohibited girls 'entry into male dormitories and girls' dormitories in nanterre university saw a great response from the students; students from both sexes wanted to occupy the girls' home and to be treated as adults.
The events took place in two stages: the first phase of the student uprising, the second phase of the first phase of a collective labor movement. The first stage was fired on May 3, when the police removed the students from the sorbonne and closed the university. the hard intervention of the police to the students led to sympathy for students in the public. the brutality of the police and the government has ensured the support of a minority movement as a minority, not only students but also a significant part of society. on the other hand, the students' reaction was harsh. On the night of May 10, the Quartier set up barricades in Latin, and even in the history of France there began rare conflicts (eh, the land of bloody revolutions) (these police-student conflicts continued until mid-June). On May 13 in Paris, approximately one million people performed. now the revolt had turned into a mass movement. the workers had gone on strike, and in the second half of May the strike wave swept the entire country. what was interesting was that the uprising spread to many different parts. The media had taken a stance on the uprising (on 25 May, French radio and television agency workers went on strike because of pressures from the government during the transfer of the news), and in February they protested the closure of Henry Fleur's cinémateque and the arrest of Langlois. filmmakers (even godard, truffaut and tavernier were injured in this show); They were united with May 68, and on May 18 they stopped the opening of the Cannés Film Festival (Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut were hanging on the curtains of cinema to prevent the onset of the performance, others cut the audio cables) (naughty guys). so the whole country with may events has been paralyzed. de gaulle and the government have become impotent, and the public order of france has disappeared until early June.

The turning point on May 30th was the return of Gaulle from Germany, dissolving the parliament and renewing the general elections. In June 1968, he reiterated the success of the gaulle with the support of the backround of a radical in paris. apparently, the French were shocked by the irregularity in May, and in return for this shock, they turned to the party of Gaulle.

he may have been successful in the June 1968 parliamentary elections, but his administration had a life span of one year and would no longer be able to attain political dignity before May 1968. The events of May 1968 severely shook de Gaulle's authority and it was accompanied by his departure from power in 1969. those who had shown that the social consensus that Charles de Gaulle had claimed to have remained artificial. Although economic development was clearly seen, the fruits of this development were unfairly distributed.

May 1968 was the explosion of a new generation against the social and political values ​​imposed on them by the dominant elites. it was short-lived, but its impact had markedly influenced the years to come. for instance, the atmosphere of freedom created by the events of 68 caused significant changes in the content of the films. The making of militant and radical films was part of this influence. The two films, which can best describe how May 1968 influenced social relations, came from two auteurialists: jean eustache's "le maman et la putain" (1972) and jacques doillon. "les doigts dans la tete" (1974).

In this entry, the documentary artwork "grand soirs et petit matins" and the fictitious "les amants reguliers" can be observed to obtain the period and events that are transferred from a visual perspective, from the language of the cinema.
