"...what is revolutionary is excess, overflow, and power. This is junkspace seen from outside: a disequilibrium and rupture multiplied on the indefinite space of the metropolis. But this is also where the multiplication of obstacles, borders, lines of fracture and walls can no longer be regarded as simply blocks dropped down by power or as swamps that one gets stuck in: they are interfaces that polarize relations."

43 Years Later
43 years ago in France students protested political bureacracy within the educational system and the existence of class discrimination. Today their movement which forced the government to hol dnew elections and almost oust de gaulle is seen as a failure. 43 years later the same things these students protested in May of 68 and on March 22nd 1968 still exist.
I thought this post was necessary because May Day and all other important events in May seem to have been pushed to the side by a U.S. wetworks operation.
A single non-revolutionary weekend is infinitely more bloody then a month of total revolution.
