Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Gökşin Sipahioğlu
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)
Gökşin Sipahioğlu, 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, Gökşin 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, Gökşin 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, Gökşin created a generation of photojournalists.
Photography by Gökşin Sipahioğlu/SIPA
“May 68, photographs by Gökşin Sipahioğlu,” 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.

Parents sue their 30-year-old son because he won't move out
One set of parents is desperate to have an empty nest. In Syracuse, New York, a couple is suing their 30-year-old in order to get him to move out of their house. According to News 8, the Rotondo parents say they've given their son Michael five notices over the past few months telling him to leave. They also told him that they'll help him if he does vacate. SEE ALSO: Awkward photobomb gets MUCH worse when daughter recognizes her dad as a creepy meme However, the son is saying he legally wasn't given enough notice. You have to admire his determination. The court filings state the parent's reason for suing is that he doesn't pay for living with them and doesn't help out around the house. Under this legal reasoning, my parents probably should have sued me when I was a kid. The neighbors in the area are siding with the parents. News 8 says resident Lashea Wright stated, "It's time. He's 30. And not paying rent. You need to be independent." The Rotondo family is going to court later this month, just before the son's 31st birthday.

A 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.

Spanish galleon laden with £13bn in gold found at bottom of Caribbean Sea, 300 years after sinking
US scientists found a Spanish galleon laden with treasure worth up to £12.6bn ($17bn) at the bottom of the Caribbean Sea, more than 300 years after it sank. The San Jose, considered the holy grail of shipwrecks, was discovered three years ago off the coast of Colombia but few details were released at the time. The 62-gun, three-masted galleon sank in June 1708, during a battle with British ships in the War of Spanish Succession, with the loss of nearly 600 lives.

'Severe damage' in Syria's Yarmuk makes returns unlikely: UN
The UN on Tuesday said it was almost impossible to imagine people returning to Syria's ruined Yarmuk Palestinian camp, a day after the government recaptured it from jihadists. Syrian troops seized control of Yarmuk and other neighbourhoods in the south of the capital Damascus on Monday after a month-long assault against the Islamic State group. Yarmuk has been so heavily battered by fighting that it was hard to picture daily life restarting there, the United Nations' Palestine refugee agency (UNRWA) said on Tuesday.
