Quick explanation of one of the symbols:

You see the clocktower towering above what appears to be three ridges. The ridges actually represent a factory, a symbol found in a lot of art and propaganda from the general strikes in May of 1968 in France. These simple caricatures of factories were typically adorned with a brick smokestack in the original artwork rather than the clocktower. In these works below the factories represent a number of things: the university (and other levels of education) have become like a factory, with the students as the raw material, assembled almost uniformly (see Mario Savio and university occupation movements); and a recognition that the university and its students are bound together with workers and the workforce in general in reproducing society.
