Only the outraged shall come in

Though the year 2016 is still in its earlier months, numerous social movements have already emerged and seem here to last. Strikes against the labour reform, opposition to the state of emergency, #NuitDebout movement, denunciation of police brutality...not only are they times of exasperation and anger, they are also echoing a deeply anchored social contestation.

The rising voices and movements convey a drive to put an end to the current atmosphere of fear, fed for years by the social and economical crisis and a growing mistrust of the political class. These mobilizations illustrate the coming together of the struggles and act the split with the traditional political representation system.

#NuitDebout movement crystallizes the growing awareness of new methods of contestation : high school students, postgrads, craftsmen, illegal immigrants, workers and jobless people...more than a thousand people gathered on place de la Rpublique in Paris without any publicly recognized leader, rejecting any political rip-off and determined to stay as an alternative political power.

From day to day, Philippe Brault photographs the demonstrators of a country in crisis and the members of an unsecured generation refusing any form of fatality and determined not to passively accept the situation.
