An at times playful conversation with Henri Lefebvre conducted by Kristin Ross. Lefebvre, then in his eighties, discussed his memories of Guy Debord and the Situationist International as well as his attempts to provoke mischievous students around Nanterre University in 1968, where the May uprisings began. Originally published in October 79 (1997).

This text was produced in 1969 and handed out at University College, Dublin and also at the anti-apartheid demonstration against the Springbok Rugby tour that year. It was produced by Phil Meyler then living in London and owed heavily to Vaneigen’s Revolution of Everyday Life. Phil was invited to visit the University President and his mother had a visit from the Special Branch who wanted to question him, neither of which happened.
