The Great Rehearsal:

A symposium and week of events

on the World Revolution of '68 and its legacies

September 17-25

<http://www.greatrehearsal.org/>www.greatrehearsal.org

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.
