May 68 and All That

Remember when IT stood for "International Times" rather a bit of electronic gadgetry? A Conference and Book Fair to celebrate May 68 will be held on May 10th at the Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London. Interesting talks from a wide range of speakers including Nick Wright, Esther Leslie, Ian Bone, Sheila Rowbotham, and Stewart Home and there will be poetry from Adrian Mitchell. There are also bookstalls from publishers, booksellers and many different organisations. The event website carries some great texts to keep you reading between now and May - including the best eye-witness account "Paris May 1968" by Chris Pallis.
Just one question - when does the demonstration start?
