Students protesting against the education crisis on the Königsplatz.
The student revolt of 1968 had a prelude in Munich, which started with demonstrations in the spring of 1967. These were directed against the controversial emergency laws, against the Shah of Persia and the Vietnam War. On 22 February, students of the technical university protested against price increases and cutbacks in the education sector.
