Charles de Gaulle

Week of May 24, 1968
Revolution spreads through the streets of Charles de Gaulle's Fifth Republic, and posters proclaim, "Humanity will not be happy until the last capitalist is hanged with the entrails of the last bureaucrat." Rebellious students and striking workers cripple the nation, while Paris police receive printed instructions characterizing the situation as "pre-revolutionary."
