The Situationist International
(SI), a group of revolutionaries inspired by the Marxist Movement, was formed in 1957. It was mixed up in the May 1968 strikes in Paris.
They took their name from their penchant for creating situations which sought to usurp Capitalism. To them, life was for passionate living, but of the superior sort...
In a bid to overthrow the system they so disliked, Situationist International subsequently organised the Paris protest. The Movement lasted until 1972.
