French Student Revolution Poster "Pouvoir Populaire"

More Views

This poster is typical of the series of posters printed in the wake of May 1968 in France. The May 1968 protest refers to a particular period in French history. It was historically significant for being the first wildcat general strike ever, and for bringing the economy of an advanced industrial country to a virtual standstill. This poster represents the Palais Bourbon, the official seat of the National Assembly on the banks of the river Seine in Paris. An allegoric game of skittle where the columns of the building represent the main political factions about to be stricken by the People´s Power!
