More information

Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Lalonde was a student leader during the May 1968 student uprisings in France, when riots and upheaval scared the French population away from Revolution and the old Left, but toward an adaptive and calmer socialism.



In 1968, Lalonde was President of the Union nationale des étudiants de france (UNEF), the French National Students' Union, which brought France to a standstill with protests and riots. Lalonde, with David McTaggart, an activist involved in the Greenpeace protests against French nuclear tests at Mururoa, helped create the confrontational strategies of boarding ships at sea in the 1970s. In July 1973, he was arrested by the French Navy during protests against nuclear tests in Mururoa, along with the General Jacques Pâris de Bollardière, the priest Jean Toulat and the writer Jean-Marie Muller .
