Around the time of the financial meltdown of 2008 and the ensuing economic crisis, the slogan 'Fuck May '68, Fight Now' appeared on protest banners and spray-painted on walls all over Europe. In disavowing the legacies of that earlier moment of revolt and revolutionary optimism, it counterposed the urgencies of current struggles against the nostalgia and romance for the radical event. Yet disavowal or refusal have not been confined to a new generation of activists.
