"... And then, in the Latin Quarter, the television was there, until midnight, that is. Then there was just the radio, Europe No. 1. And at about three in the morning -- in complete bedlam, there was noise from all directions -- a radio guy handed the microphone to Daniel Cohn-Bendit, who had the brilliant idea of simply saying: "General strike, general strike, general strike." And that was the decisive moment; it was then that there was action. That was what took the police by surprise. That students were making trouble, that there was a little violence, some wounded, tear gas, paving stones, barricades, and bombs -- that was all just the children of the bourgeoisie having a good time. But a general strike, well, that was no laughing matter."- Henri Lefebvre, "Lefebvre on the Situationists: An Interview." October 79 (Winter 1997), p. 83.
