Mick Jagger: an icon of counterculture in the 1960s
Shortly after the Rolling Stones announced their first number 1 hit single "It & # 39; s All Over Now" to the world, the band's irresistible front man, Mick Jagger, quickly established himself in 1964 as an icon of counterculture and Middle class rebel.
The band's 1968 track Street Fighting Man was typical of Jagger's controversial personality. With the themes of the song fueled by some of the most violent political events and student revolts of the year in Europe and the United States, Jagger called for an uprising on the streets of London and prompted the song to be accepted as a revolutionary hymn.
"This country is so strange," he said about Britain in May 1968. "It always makes things a little different, always more moderate and always very boring. Most of the time the changes are suppressed – people suppress them."
Jagger tried to lead a cultural revolution and took part in the now notorious riots on Grosvenor Street in London. Together with activist Tariq Ali and 10,000 other demonstrators, he marched from Oxford Street to the US embassy and demonstrated against the Vietnam War.
But when the protest turned into a violent uprising with more than 200 arrests and 86 injuries, Jagger raced from the square to the safety of a nearby house when the street fighters got too much for the then 24 years. old.
The brutal reality of the uprising ended Jagger's short-lived debate on politics at the forefront. For much of the 1970s, he instead calculated himself to be a decadent, drugged sex god who made little comment on socio-political issues.
Despite his preference to stay out of the political debate in recent years, Jagger has never entirely lost the revolutionary image he created over 50 years ago.
Jagger also lamented "the polarization and incidentality in public life," although the former bad boy of rock admitted in the 1960s that he was "not always polite."
"But if you see it now … in so many countries, including my own last week, but especially in the United States, it's a fundamental change.
"It's not about manners," Jagger insisted, saying he was afraid of "where all this polarization, rudeness and lies will take us."
Even more worrying, the singer said, was that the small environmental protection measures that were in place were swept away all over the world.
Jagger blew up Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement.
& # 39; We are currently in a very difficult situation, particularly in the United States, where all environmental controls that have been introduced – which were just adequate – have been withdrawn by the current government to the extent that they are wiped out, & # 39 ; he added.
Jagger, who rarely comments on politics, said: “The US should be the world leader in environmental control, but now it has decided to take the other route.
"I'm so glad that people feel so strong that they want to protest," he said, referring to young activists from Greta Thunberg's Friday for the Future movement, "Listen to Your Children" and " Make the red carpet green "sprayed on the festival's red carpet.
Co-star Donald Sutherland reiterated his call to protest, asking people to take to the streets and vote out Trump, Johnson and right-wing Brazilian leader Jair Balsonaro.
"Mick is right, the controls (in the US) under Obama were hardly enough – now they are being torn apart. It is the same in Brazil and in England they are torn apart after Brexit, ”he warned.
“If you are 85 years old and have children and grandchildren, we will not leave you anything if we do not deselect these people in Brazil, London and Washington.
"They are causing the destruction of the world," something "we all have contributed to," added Sutherland.

Jagger plays an art collector in a stylish thriller in which "it is never clear who tells the truth".
"This film is about fake (Ness), and the truth speaks for some of it. That's why it's part of this modern dialogue," he told reporters.
& # 39; We are going through a very strange time. You know you live in it, but you don't know what will happen in the end. & # 39;
The Venice film festival ends on Saturday with Roman Polanski's controversial Dreyfus affair story "An Officer and a Spy", which has already won the main prize from international critics.
