53 years ago today, hundreds of University Berkley Students protested hearings of the House Un-americans Activities Committee. The San Francisco Police responded with water cannons. The next day, the protest swelled into the thousands and the free-speech movement was born.
This week’s rant of the week features student activist Mario Salvo from a few years later on December 2nd, 1964.
