Paris, May 1968 ? a view from the barricades by Gök?in Sipahio?lu

Paris, May 1968 ? a view from the barricades by Gök?in Sipahio?lu

Fifty years ago, as France exploded in mass protests, words scrawled on the walls of the Sorbonne summed up the revolutionary zeal of the time: ?Run free, comrade, we?ve left the old world behind!?

Half a century later, the May 1968 demonstrations that brought millions of idealistic students and striking workers to the streets remain a watershed moment in France?s cultural history.

Sexual liberation, artistic creativity and anti-capitalism were the order of the day. For those who were there, it was an unforgettable time.

The protests swept through a France that was still ruled by the strict conservatism of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, who was then president and banned the concerts of French rocker Johnny Hallyday for causing scenes of mass hysteria.

The aftershocks of the protests would be felt for years to come. (AFP)
?
Gök?in Sipahio?lu, a Turkish photojournalist and one of the father figures of photojournalism, covered news stories from the 1956 war in the Sinai Peninsula to Mao?s revolution in China, the Cuban missile crisis, the 1972 Munich Olympics killings, and the Prague Spring and Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

As a correspondent for the Turkish daily Hürriyet, he came to Paris to cover the May 1968 student uprising. While many photojournalists were on the streets, Gök?in brought his curiosity, audacity, uncanny anticipation of events, and keen eye to the frontlines to freshly illuminate the quickly unfolding events. He remarked at the time:

?At first I did not understand what was going on. For hours on the first day of rioting the police allowed the students to do as they liked. The students wrecked everything, ripped up paving stones, chopped down trees, erected barricades, set cars on fire. Later, in a matter of minutes, the CRS [riot police] charged the students. I asked myself, ?Why hadn?t they charged earlier?? I soon understood why. The authorities wanted the public to see the devastation.?

While in Paris, Gök?in realized that a network was sorely needed for distribution of news photos, and he founded Sipa Press photo news agency in 1973 with American journalist Phyllis Springer. Encouraging young photographers and giving many their first chance, Gök?in created a generation of photojournalists.

Photography by Gök?in Sipahio?lu/SIPA

?May 68, photographs by Gök?in Sipahio?lu,? is on view at Galerie Basia Embiricos and Photo 12 Galerie in Paris through May 25, 2018. It was curated by Ferit Duzyol in collaboration with Sipa Press.

Not only did it tie for the best overall diet in the U.S. News Best Diets rankings in January, but this year also marks the Mediterranean diet pyramid's 25th anniversary. Beyond being linked to a host of powerful health benefits including a reduction in heart disease risk, potential weight loss, improved brain health and longevity, much of the eating pattern's staying power can be attributed to its flexibility -- there aren't entire food groups excluded, and followers don't calorie count or track macros.

Startling increase in physical and sexual abuse of child immigrants by US Border Patrol, new report allegesA new report suggests that there has been a startling increase in the number of instances where US Border Patrol officers have abused children seeking shelter in the United States from violence and poverty in Central America. The report, based on more than 30,000 pages of Border Patrol reports obtained by chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) through Freedom of Information Act requests, alleges a "pattern of inimidation, harassment, physical abuse, refusal of medical services, and improper deportation between 2009 and 2014." The report follows after a previous disclosure from the ACLU that detailed 116 incidents where officers were alleged to have physically, sexually, or psychologically abused children between the ages of five and 17.

Amnesty highlights sex-for-food claims in Boko Haram-hit NigeriaAmnesty International on Thursday urged Nigeria to act on claims soldiers and members of the civilian militia have raped women and girls in remote camps for people displaced by Boko Haram but the government said the rights monitor was repeating false accusations. Amnesty said it had gathered multiple testimonies about alleged abuse by the security forces, including claimed that soldiers coerced vulnerable survivors into having sex in exchange for food.
