At the right end of the mural were three figures from a supposed future. A homeless woman with her dog, a man panhandling on the sidewalk, and a mother walking her son to school. Between them a tree bursts through the sidewalk.

Above the jail were televisions, power cables, briefcases filled with cash, and Clark Kerr and Nixon holding onto the top ends of the cables.

A sheet of paper on the hood of the police car quoted Mario Savio's famous speech:

There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious that you can't even tacitly take part. You've got to put your bodies upon the gears, the levers and all the apparatus and you've got to indicate to the people who run it and own it that unless you are free the machine will be prevented from working at all.
