CTF COPENHAGEN

"The slogan 'Revolution or Death!' is no longer the lyrical expression of consciousness in revolt: rather, it is the last word of the scientific thought of our century. It applies to the perils facing the species as to the inability of individuals to belong in a society where it is well-known that the suicide rate is on the increase. The experts had to admit, reluctantly, that during May 1968 in France it fell to almost nil.

That spring also vouchsafed us a clear sky, and it did so effortlessly, because a few cars were burnt and the shortage of petrol prevented others form polluting the air. When it rains, where there are clouds of smog over Paris, let us never forget that it is the government's fault.

Alienated production makes the smog. Revolution makes the sunshine."

"A SICK PLANET", GUY DEBORD, 1971
