Cohn-Bendit’s views about sexuality, drugs, and the education of children, as he worked in a kindergarden taking care of toddlers.

(This is an exerpt from the TV litterary show “Apostrophes” on French TV chanel Antenne (now called France 2), broadcasted on April 23rd 1982. The TV show host, Bernard Pivot, invited Jean-Edern Hallier, writer; Sapho, singer; Paul Guth; writer and journalist and Daniel Cohn-Bendit.)

Daniel Marc Cohn-Bendit (born in Montauban, France, April 4, 1945) is a French-German politician and was a student leader during the unrest of May 1968 in France. He was also known during that time as Dany le Rouge (French for “Danny the Red”, because of both his politics and the color of his hair). He is currently co-president of the group European Greens–European Free Alliance in the European Parliament.

On June 7, 2009, the European Parliament elections gave Cohn-Bendit a major breakthrough in France. In spite of a conservative victory by Nicolas Sarkozy’s UMP Party with 28,3% of the votes and an overall conservative victory all over Europe, Europe Écologie, the party founded by Cohn-Bendit, won over 16,28% of the votes, following by less than 0,2% the French Socialist Party led by Martine Aubry (16,48%). According to official French results, Cohn-Bendit’s party thus became the third political force in France, even overtaking the Socialist Party in the Paris region, and, furthermore by adding the votes of an alternative ecologist party also present in the election, giving ecologists a never yet experienced weight in French politics. His list featured Norwegian Magistrate Eva Joly, a specialist of anti-corruption struggles, and José Bové, a controversial unionist.
