TitleQuand les parents votent, les enfants trinquent, Anonymous
Extent1 outsize item
DescriptionPoster in response to the May 1968 student revolution in France of police repression, stamped Faculte des Sciences.

Text: 'Quand les parents votent, les enfants trinquent.' [When the parents vote, the children suffer/pay the price]. This is an ironic reference to a well known French saying 'Quand les parents boivent, les enfants trinquent' [When the parents drink, the children suffer].

The image of this print is a reference against the heavy handed tactics used by the police in dealing with the student demonstrations and protests.
