(According to the memoirs of Mathieu Lindon, who accompanied Foucault on some of the events, his role as public intellectual in standing at the front of a march or demo was to help ensure a degree of protection to the demonstrators against violent attacks by the riot police.)
Another testament to Foucault’s courage. This is my all time favourite photo of Foucault.
