Free Speech MovementFree Speech Movement took place at UC Berkeley from Sept. 10, 1964, through Jan. 4, 1965.  It was a "student protest...under the informal leadership of students Mario Savio, Jack Weinberg, Michael Rossman, Brian Turner, Bettina Aptheker, Steve Weissman, Art Goldberg, Jackie Goldberg..."
The FSM "was a struggle by students over the right to engage in political speech on campus, which helped to catalyze broader political activism on campuses around the country over student rights, civil rights and the Vietnam War."
Rally At Hoover
The Stanford Rehabilitation Movement's (SRM) second week of protest against the firing of Associate English Professor H. Bruce Franklin will include a rally at noon January 17 1972 at the Hoover Institution. The Movement is an ad hoc committee consisting of members of Venceremos, the Association of Young Crows and the Faculty Political Action Group. The rally has been called "to congratulate the new nominees to the (Institution's) Board of Overseers," Supreme Court Justice and Stanford graduate William H. Rehnquist and former Stanford Trustee and former Deputy Defense Secretary David Packard. (Last week the University Board of Trustees extended an invitation to Rehnquist and Packard to become members of the Board.)
In the other major speech at the rally, Pacific Studies Center researcher Steve Weissman introduced the "Dick Lyman Big Broom for Good Housecleaning." Weissman referred in his speech to remarks made by Lyman when he became President: "The University is going to have to put its own house in order." Weissman explained that only "liberals" are eligible to win the "Big Broom" and that "the most original sacrifice of principles at the end of this week" will win the Broom.
Venceremos member Leslie Rabine said that "we do consider the referendum important." She explained that Movement members will be discussing the vote with students in the dorms and will be manning the polls on the election days.
