Hundreds of protestors marched along the street during the Peoples Park Protest. Notice how everyone in 1969 looked ahead as they walked, not down at phones..

The Berkeley police were happy that it was peaceful for a while. Protesters had given them flowers that they used to decorate their helmets.

An army reservist, rifle at his side, helped guard the park. The site was owned by the University of California, but undeveloped. The people decided to convert the derelict site into a park.

Three of the protesters gathered together to discuss the next steps in the protest. They wore green painted hard hats.

I recommend posting a couple of these on Facebook, since folks are feeling very political these days.
