Hommage to May 68

Benath the Tarmac, the Paving Stones!
Postcard
The famous poetic slogan of May 68 "Sous les pavés, la plage! - Beneath the paving stones, the beach!" also refers to the fact that in the traditional paving technique, cobblestones are placed on a bed of sand. It reappears when the cobbles are taken away to be used as projectiles or to build barricades.
Since that time, nearly all roads have been covered with tarmac...

En marge! Vive la Frange!
Stickers, placard
By a slight voluntary misspelling, Emmanuel Macron’s famous 2017 election slogan "En marche! — In movement!" becomes "On the fringes!", and "Vive la France! — Long live France!" transforms into "Longe live the margins!"

MAI 68-18: 50 ans ça suffit - Is 50 Years Enough?
