Graffitis, Curses and Inscriptions

ParisNext week marks the 50th anniversary of the volatile period of civil unrest in Paris during May 1968, punctuated by demonstrations and massive general strikes, as well as the occupation of universities and factories across France. The unrest began with a series of student occupation protests against capitalism, consumerism, American imperialism and traditional institutions, values and order. These are some “graffitis, curses and inscriptions of May 1968” from a [free] little book called Boredom Weeps published May 1, 2018 by Black Ink and Interference Archive.

Hijack life then rewrite its user’s manual.

Talk to your neighbors.

Patriotism rhymes with Fascism.

More than ever, we need
direct action committees.
Above all, create
direct action committees.
We owe our victory to
direct action committees.
Are you part of a
direct action committee?
If not, create your own
direct action committee.

Power over your life is found inside you.

Unzip your mind as often as your fly.

No replastering, the structure is rotten.

Beware! We’re surrounded by dipshits.
Rather than dwell on the spectacle of
protests let’s concern ourselves with
protesting their spectacle.

Be realistic, demand the impossible.

You’ll all end up dying of comfort.

The right to live isn’t begged for,
it’s taken.
