1968 was a world revolution. From Mexico City to Tokyo, Paris to Prague, Columbia University to Berkeley, it was a revolutionary event that at once failed and transformed the world. The process it put into place continues today. 1968, the long '68, altered fundamental balances of power and set the stage for today's new movements. '68 was a great rehearsal. For what, it is up to us to decide.
The Global Commons Foundation, PM Press, and Historians Against the War invite you to a week of discussions and events on the worldwide events of 1968 and their legacies.
The events will run from Wednesday September 17 to Thursday September 25, and will be centered around an all-day symposium at the University of San Francisco on Saturday September 20th.
These events were made possible through partnerships with: University of San Francisco, Intertribal Friendship House, American Indian Movement, Retort, Free Speech Cafe Program at UC Berkeley, CounterPULSE, Shaping San Francisco, KPFA, WarTimes/Tiempo.
